I really liked today's outfit - something about the colours evoked a strong bout of nostalgia. It wasn't until I was walking home that I realized: I'm wearing a 70s kitchen!

The orange top is one that I just love - I last wore it here to a hockey game (man, I look different with blonde hair! It's my 70s Paprika. This orange was everywhere in the 70s. Pretty sure we had plates this colour.
here). It's been packed away since September 2012, since it's really only good with bare legs - it's quite clingy on tights.
I wore this olive green blazer as my outerwear while walking to and from work today. I last wore it as a layering piece for bowling adventures here in March.
here last week for our theatre outing to see "Beauty and the Beast." I also did my vintage 70s cuff - how's that for synchronicity?
After consultation with a work-friend who knows fabric and design, and another coworker who knows high-end brands, we concluded that this scarf is not, in fact, actual designer, Hermes or Halston. How did we determine this? Well, it's all in the silkscreening of the pattern.
So it's a knock-off. However, given the very high quality of the silk, and the immaculate hand-rolled and sewn edges, and the raging 70s colour scheme, we did all agree that it's probably a high-end imitation from Japan (where they started manufacturing these post-WWII), and it is probably from the 70s. I think it would have cost much more than the $4.50 I paid for it!
