Guest Post: The Gilded Peach

I've got another great one for you today. Margaret from The Gilded Peach is one of my favorite bloggers out there. I love her because she's from Atlanta, she has an awesome eye for decor, and she's just pretty awesome. Get excited....

Hello lovely BDB readers! My name is Margaret and I, like you, am an avid reader of Emily's blog. Isn't she groovy? I wanted to talk to you all a little bit about a movie I stumbled across.

NOVEM. This movie is about nine college students and the incredible trip they take to a secluded recording studio. They record their original music, drink, smoke doobies, and let you in on their truest feelings and thoughts in the process. Not only is this incredible movie inspiring and a "one of a kind" but it was also worked on by the post production company I work for. So, if you are ever in the mood to watch something a little bit different than the mainstream blockbusters you see at the movie theater, check out Novem.

So why am I rambling about some random movie that most people haven't heard much about? The fashion, of course! When most people think about their favorite era of fashion they automatically go to the 20's, 30's, 40's, 50's, or 60's. I appreciate all of the curve-hugging pencil skirts, flapper dresses with intricate lace and beading, and the ever-classic loafer but I have to admit that my soft spot lies with the 70's.

Call me a hippie born in the wrong decade but I love a good pair of bell bottoms or a cropped halter. Now don't get me wrong- I wouldn't be caught dead in either of those, considering my body type (it would be like stuffing a 10 pound sausage into a 5 pound casing.). Today's fashion is such a great mix of so many trends from decades across the board and if you look closely you can see so much that was directly influenced by the 70's.
 
 
 
High waisted jean shorts are so on trend right now and are a direct throwback to the 70's.
 
 
 
Over-sized sunglasses were mandatory, as they are today.
 
 
 
And you can't forget the tie dye that is popping up everywhere from hair dye to cakes, shirts, bedding, and more!
 
Whether you are a hippie at heart or prefer the high waisted glam sports shorts, you have to pay your respects to this absolutely unique moment in fashion. May you live on forever.
 
Thank you Emily for letting me take over your fabulous blog for a moment. Hopefully I can come back again soon to write more to your beautiful followers! If you want to read more of my insanity hop on over to The Gilded Peach and soak it all in!
 
Hugs and Peaches- Margaret

It's funny how trends keep coming back. I remember the high-waisted jeans and the bleached tye die clothing when I was a teenager in the 90's.
