It all started in the 70’s for me. Levis and Hanes tee-shirts, Frye boots and boxy jackets and my Nana’s old cashmere beige swing coat.  It was the first time I felt cool and sexy and I was just 15. Whether I shopped at the used Army Navy store on Boylston Street in Boston or found my stuff at Filene’s, all defunct now, the look was something that felt right on my body.

It has been fun to find this retro site called RE/Done and see these models that look like my highschool 70’s yearbook girlfriends. Can you believe this look is still here?

What is shocking is the price tag. You will see. But if you are like me, you can rationalize a purchase as you know from experience there is nothing fickle about this fashion.

I still grab my go-to pair of jeans, boots, blouse or tee and cool jacket that make me wonder what that other stuff is in my closet. The “look” that I found back in the 70’s still works for me. It’s become a uniform and lucky for many of us, we can still find it. but at a cost of course

Have fun perusing this fun site and maybe you will find some stuff you want as I did.

I’ve curated some of my favorite Levi jeans, boots, belts and Hanes tees that I found there. What about you, what look have you embraced that makes you feel just right and even a little sexy?
