A Good Button Up

I do love a good 70s button up!!!  But, it has to be just right or it looks awful on me.  Because of my build I prefer my lovely polyester button ups to be really thin and worn in
material.  I also like to wear them unbuttoned lowwwww, like how I imagine Italian men did in the 70s.  Or still do.  What do I know since I've never been to Italy??


Wearing my mom's school ring she gave me and my dad's watch along with a vintage pinky ring and a big fat costume jewelry ring:

Also, two vintage rings and a homemade crystal ring, along with my dad's vintage gold-tone bracelet:

Kind of a terrible pic!!! But, oh well :( 
Also wearing my dad's belt from the 70s!!  He had the best belts.  I swear, I just can't find comparable modern ones. 


 The amazing print that includes a brown-tone rainbow and lounging nude lady amongst assorted flowers and birds and such:

 Hooking up to Patti's Visible Monday!

Love & Light,

  2. Great stuff! Yes, we had better belts back in the Seventies. I had a big collection of belts back then.

  3. My husband LOVES his '70s polyester button downs, especially the one with the "third eye" print and the "cinnamon dots". Neither of which are as good as the one you're wearing. And, idiot me, I've been trying to get him to throw them away for years. Now I know. You will make his day.

  4. That's one heck of a cool print. Love your jewellery, too.
    Funny how we call them button downs and you call them button ups. xxx

  5. Really great button-up and your whole vibe is right-on '70s, especially with your awesome hair. It's hard to get a good belt these days. I've had luck in thrift shops in the menswear department. The older the belt, the softer and thicker the leather, and the better the buckle, as you know!

  6. The pattern on that is gorgeous :D I've been hunting down 70s vintage to add to my personal collection to wear and you look amazing in the polyester button-down. I have an hourglass figure so button downs look badly boxy on me but I'm looking out for all the 70s universally flattering sheath dresses I can find :D

  7. I do love a cool 70s shirt with a great print - and that is a fabulous example! You've got the 70s vibe perfectly. Amazing rings too. xxx

  8. This is a great look on you Becky, and I think you are right about the low-buttoned shirts on Italian men! Right? Think Saturday Night Fever! John Travolta and his buddies were wearing their shirts pretty low (guess they were Italian-American though, huh, every time I'm in Bay Ridge I think of that movie!). I also love those amazing rings on you. xx
