Modern 70’s Style

Posted on: July 28, 2016

Have you noticed the 70’s touches in style currently?  

When I saw an article on Jeans for Fall in Instyle Magazine, 

I was delighted to see embroidered ones among them…


When I checked my favorite jean designer, Diane Gilman 

and found these, I swooned. 

Does it get more modern with flared cropped jeans with the 70’s embroidery?  


When my son took this photograph where I was trying a different pose , 

than my normal one with my legs crossed,  he looked through the lens 

and said, ” Mom , those jeans really do makes you look slimmer!” 


When I saw these pictures, I saw exactly what he mentioned.  

So, of course I ran and found my measuring tape and lo and behold, 

I have lost an inch in my hips!   


That’s a huge pay-off for not quite two weeks of cutting calories 

and exercising every single day!  

I had been concerned as the scale was showing only a 3 lb weight loss from 

week one , but nothing for week 2…

So , ignoring my scale and going to keep doing what I’ve been with the treadmill as soon as 

I wake up everyday for 2 miles and then a Pilates or 10-15 lb handweights doing arm work and squats.

PS.  I also lost 1/2 inch in my waist and each thigh!  

Dear Readers, asking for prayers today as our beloved mini-lop goes in for surgery

for what they suspect could be cancer.  

She is in Richmond with my son

who is at college for Summer classes and 

my daughter and youngest son joined him last night to be there

for the day and in the days afterwards to 

help watch out for her during the recovery period.  

 It’s hard letting them do this without me, but in 

the end it really will be a great bonding for them all.  

This rabbit is technically my daughter’s but she allowed her 

brother to take him to college last year and again this coming year ,

so it’s great that they are doing this together. 

I joke my son who is studying for a future as a Dr. that he is going through this now

to get experience to help him later understand how his patient’s families feel.

Good job with the workouts—-it is such a good feeling to get back into shape! I wish it just weren’t so easy to get out of shape!!
I went to yoga last night, and I know I’ll be sore today—but it’s all good!
I know the 70’s styles are rearing their head—and I’m sure I’ll have a pair of jeans like this soon—ha ha!
Knowing this, now I can’t wait for the 80’s to come back—when everyone gets a perm in their hair, and I’ll fit right in again!!

Too funny, for the 80s once was enough, lol . Hope you are not too sore, recommend Turmeric, I swear by it…

Way to go! Keep up the good work.

Hi, Tracey. Your embroidered jeans are so cute! I am noticing the 70’s trend. The one I may try are the cropped and frayed jeans. I see them with varying length and width styles…so I may have to go through some old jeans, whack them off and try it. I think I’d prefer cutting and letting them fray close to the ankle.
Just read about your upcoming girlfriend cruise! How exciting!!! You two will have so much fun.
Oh…and thanks for the tip about the tumeric!

I did get a pair of the frayed jeans as well, they are slightly tight as they were on clearance, but losing weight and they should be perfect when I am ready to wear them,lol. Good luck with making your own pair!
