Vintage Dope

This installment of Vintage Dope is brought to you by yours truely.  Someone said to me once, that the color brown is so 1970s.  My reply was, “So it is…but what’s wrong with the 70s?!?!”

Every piece that make up this look is from a vintage store somewhere in America, except for the grey turtle neck sweater by Banana Republic and the brown Magnanni boots.  Jacket is a purchase from Hong Kong Vintage Clothing in Charlotte, NC.  The vintage Brooks Brothers trousers were purchased at Design Archives Vintage Clothing in Greensboro, NC. 

This is my love for the 1970s.
