70’s Chic!

On October 30, 2009, in Fashion Week, Kerry Cushman, Style This!, by Kerry Cushman

Seen at: GenArt’s Fresh Faces in Fashion

GenArt always bring out the style-setters and scenesters wearing the next big thing, so last night’s Fresh Faces in Fashion runway show was the perfect event to rock my new obsession, vintage super hi-waisted jeans I picked up last week in Phoenix.

Style This! The jeans are a serious statement, so the key to not making them look like you’re going to a 70’s theme party is keeping the rest of the ensemble modern, clean and chic. I paired them with a cream silk top by Banana Republic, a few wrist bangles from Vita Fede, tan Mary Jane platforms from Shoes for Lovely People and my grey leather Miu Miu. I love how the braided handle looks with the hi-waist, it reminds me of the 70’s, but is totally modern.

Stella McCartney? Chloe? Every fashionista with a blog was inquiring on my fabulous vintage find. Check out some pics below.

Louis Verdad & I talking fashion… “Vintage?” he asked. “They are too fabulous, tell them they are Stella McCartney!”

And the jeans? I bought them on a road trip to see U2 last week. One of my favorite things to do on a road trip is to check out local vintage and thrift stores. These came from ‘Classic American Kaos’ in Tempe, Arizona. A fabulous mix of vintage jeans, cowboy boots, concert t’s and vintage dresses with a super knowledgeable & friendly staff.
