’70s Vibes with alice + olivia at Shopbop
Well, I’m back! Sorry for the hiatus, but my hubby and I took a well needed break traveling around the midwest. We visited family and various hotspots such as the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland! Cleveland in itself is such a beautiful and fun city from what I could tell by the short amount of time we were there before we continued on with our road trip, but the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame was easily a place you could spend several days at. I always say if I could ever get my hands on a time machine, I’d go back to experience the earlier days of rock, especially that famous National Anthem solo by Hendrix at Woodstock (and yes, that guitar was on display there!!). I’m always fascinated by ’60s and ’70s vibes, and visiting the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame brought me right there. Maybe I existed in a past life during that era? Who knows. I can only dream. But when it comes to fashion, I’m always drawn to pieces that are inspired by this carefree and yet politically active era. As soon as I got back and sifted through my backup of emails that accumulated while I was gone, I found one from Shopbop featuring a collection of cool ’70s inspired pieces from fashion powerhouse brand alice + olivia.
alice + olivia designer Stacey Bendet brought together a beautiful myriad of textures, colors, detailing and styles for this collection, titled Room Service. The lookbook photos I absolutely love on their own!! Not only do I love vintage apparel, but also architecture and decór. This collection features so many beautiful colors, embroidery detailing, flower prints (which I honestly am not always so fond of but love in this context), frilly and flowy fabrics and of course, plenty of high waisted flares. It also includes some marvelous footwear such as velvet heels and tall embroidered boots! These are all so droolworthy! Even if it’s out of your price range, it’s still worth admiring it all as the incredible artistry that it is. It all looks like pieces seen at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, that used to adorn the figures of Jimi Hendrix or Janis Joplin herself.
Here are some of my favorite pieces from the collection!
