INSPIRATIONAL POSTER FROM THE 70's "TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF THE REST OF YOUR LIFE"


Another great inspirational poster from the 1970's.  

"Today is the first day of the rest of your life."  

This is a really good thing to remember, especially as we're starting into a New Year:


"The Lord's mercies...fail not. They are new every morning."   - Lamentations 3:22-23

LEATHER LACE-UP WIDE BUTTERFLY BELT & RED STRAW FLOPPY HAT CIRCA 1970's



As promised, here is a re-post from last time (about the dress) with detail on the belt and hat.

In the 1970's, butterflies, leather and lace-up styles were 'in'.  This belt has them all.


With wide belts being back in fashion, it's easy to find many similar styles available today.


As for the 'floppy' hat, anything in a natural fiber - such as straw - was popular in the 70's.


Wide-brim straw hats are still very popular today, especially for wearing at the beach, etc.

SMOCKED PUFF SLEEVE MAXI DRESS



Beautiful floral Maxi Dress from the 1970's.  Ruffled puffy sleeves, high collar, and smocked stitching.

So many great fashion elements going on here with the addition of the wide belt and floppy hat.


I'm going to have to do another post just for the red straw hat and lace-up butterfly belt!


Sweet, innocent look from the early 70's. 


With the return of the Maxi Dress to the fashion scene, it's available once again...
