Last weekend, I took some time to catch up on my required reading–magazines, of course–and came across an editorial of pitch-perfect ’70s secretary looks in the February issue of Jalouse:

I don’t know how they knew (darn Frenchies!), but this is exactly how I want to dress right now. Ladylike blouses, belted blazers, and cropped trousers are at the top of my Spring wish list. For now, I’m making do with what I already have:

Thrifted…well, everything. FriendBoy’s old “birth control” glasses

I know ’70s style is making a comeback for the skabillionth (it’s a word!) time since the actual seventies, but it’s always been my favorite decade style-wise. What’s yours?

    I’ve been reading your blog for awhile and I just have to say that you pull off the old BCG’s wonderfully. If only I could have looked that nice when it was required of me to wear them.

      Haha, thanks Liz! I had some in elementary school that I HATED–it’s so ironic that I like to wear them now!

    I need the shoes from the top picture right side in my life pronto! Love your blouse and belt. I like the secretary/teacher look for work.

      The ’70s secretary/teacher look definitely works for work. It’s a tad subversive, but in a very subtle way.
