Influence of the 70's in my new tunic top from Xhilaration

It's a blustery day on the runway

And I'm thinking Spring, again!

I just picked up this Bell Sleeve shift dress or tunic by Xhilaration.

The little ruffle collar comes together when tied to make a keyhole neckline.  The fabric is 100% rayon and is easy care. 


Little brass buttons down the front lend a romantic edge.  

The bell sleeves with a bias cut ruffle at the bottom are reminiscent of the 70's.

The mustard, lavender and white flowered print softly flows from the 70's to the present.

It is just $27.99

I am wearing my black BRIGITTE ANKLE PANTS from Chico's.

They incorporate a hidden fit technology that slims and smooths the silhouette.  They sit just below the natural waistline and the rayon, nylon and spandex blend provide a comfortable stretch.

They come in a variety of prints and colors.

Fashion is cyclical.  The 70's inspired fashion designs started popping up on the runways in Spring/Summer of 2015 and have proven to have staying power.  I found some photos of designs from the 70's ...............
 you can judge the similarities yourself.

For those of us who remember the 70's......
remember the fashions as being soft and free.

It's good to bring that feeling back!
