My second to last stop in Europe before heading home was Amsterdam. My friends and I stopped here for five days after Marrakech. When we arrived we ubered to our hotel (Budget Hotel Tourist Inn) in the downtown area of Amsterdam. Amsterdam was by far the most expensive hotel we paid for during our time in Europe and it was the size of a closet. I would recommend this hotel though since we were able to stay in the city and it was clean. We did have to carry all or our luggage up two flights of stairs on the tinniest staircase, which is apparently pretty common in Amsterdam since the buildings are so small and tall.
After completing a class project on the 1930’s, and listening to other classmates talk about the decades of fashion past, I decided to bring this knowledge to The Garment Garden! I have always identified most with the 1970’s hippie style so, first I want to dive into the 70’s and talk about some key trends. The first trend I want to discuss is the influence of the wild west style on the 70’s as well as today.
