Corduroy

Hello. everyone, Happy Monday!  Hope your weekend was a good one.  For me, it was great as I slowly recovered and back on track.  I hope this schedule posting thing works out fine, as I should be in the Seychelles when this post is published.  I will resume my usual visits to your blogs as soon as I am back in town again!

Corduroy, love it or hate it.  Me, I can't say that I am a big fan but somehow I have been saving this jacket in my closet for quite some time now.  For me, corduroy gives me a sort of vintage/retro feel when I put it on, in many ways it reminds me of the 70's!  I remember sporting a pair of corduroy bell-bottom jeans back in the 70's when I was like 6 or 7 years old and the feeling they gave me was like "Yeah, baby!  I'm awesome!!"  So in a way I can conclude that corduroy has more of a sentimental value of me getting in touch with my fashionable (or not) side for the first time than anything else :)

What about you, care for corduroy?

  6. Great outfit, I really like it. Now for corduroy...I love it, especially the blazers, I have a purple one that I really like. Corduroy does remind me of the 70ties as well:)

  11. yes, corduroy is very 70s when you think of bell bottoms, but blazers are more modern with a preppy vibe! nice outfit. the ruffle on your blouse adds a bit of feminine to it!

  22. I tend to associate corduroy with the 70s, too - but I think done right, in can look very modern and lovely. Your corduroy blouse is a perfectly classic piece and it looks lovely styled with boyfriend jeans :)

  25. Corduroy fits nicely between under dressed & over dressed - it's casual but smart. A lovely choice in chocolate!
