New Year’s Eve for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: The Home Version
Quote of the day: “Be the person you needed when you were younger.” Ayesha A. Siddiqi
I know, for me, New Year’s Eve is not the all exciting holiday anymore. I have a hard time staying awake until midnight and I don’t love being out in all the bustle and commotion. Therefore, I thought I’d start this series with the all realistic version of what we do and where we go for the night! We stay home or close to home. But even though we take it easy, it’s still nice to add a little umph to your outfit especially if you will be around others. In this instance, I put on my fur ribbed turtleneck, Nancy has on a glittery tank top and mom added shiny flats!
50’s New Year’s Eve: I just got this sweater in Buena Vista when I was at our knitting retreat. Our group just happened to wander into a store called Free the Monkey Consignment shop!
Jeans: Banana Republic (similar here)~~Sweater: Nine West–thrifted (similar here I couldn’t find any with a fur collar but you could wear a fur snood here)~~Shoes: Qupid (similar here)~~Earrings: BaubleBar (similar here)
60’s New Year’s Eve: Red jeans are a perfect party jean. These are lightweight, so Nancy added long underwear beneath them!
70’s New Year’s Eve: Mom knitted this sweater over 15 years ago. Now that I knit, she gave it up!!
