So yes, my big sister Izzy has been here for a week and it’s still influencing all my wardrobe choices.  But retro is in and nostalgia for everything, from portable record players to Polaroid cameras, is everywhere you look.  My absolute favorite is when it inspires fashion like this fun and bubbly, bright blue blouse with a geometric green and white pattern.  The dots and dashes remind me of the graphics from classic video games and brings back memories of trouncing Izzy every time we played.  Then, because color coordination is an inborn habit and a family trait, I emphasize my centerpiece with white fitted jeans and this fantastic find of a necklace.  A perfectly matching green and blue beaded bib with a touch of rhinestones for sparkle.  Since I was already feeling cheeky, I top it all off with funky, black leather cutout ankle boots, a pair of retro round sunglasses with gold accents, and an oversized black tote.  Influenced by the big purses that Izzy always carries. It’s awfully convenient to be able to carry everything with you and in this case stylish as well.  Whatever will I do when she’s gone?
