A belle sleeve to a pointed toe
Hello! Well this is my first ever outfit blog post.. I know, scary! I have introduced myself on my ‘about/contact’ page in the drop down menu at the top of the page if you would like to get a little idea of why I have started this blog.
SO! Today it’s all about the seventies! The seventies is definitely my favourite era and who doesn’t like channelling their inner Stevie Nicks? The seventies trend was all over the catwalks and high streets for SS15 but now it’s that time of the year again where the days are short, the nights are long and you find yourself digging out that winter coat!
So todays outfit is 70’s inspired with a winter modern twist.
I do own a iron! I promise..
I have paired a black waist coat with a cream bell sleeve top, just look at those dreamy floaty sleeves! and for £5? I just couldn’t help myself.
I decided to stick with the original 70s theme and threw on some wide leg jeans that I found in the charity shop. I cut them myself to make them into a pair of cropped jeans and frayed the bottoms to give them a distressed look.
To top my look off I added my ultimate favourite leopard print pointed boots and a full length fur coat form Mexx. This coat is super snug and almost covers the whole of my little 5ft2 self ha!
COAT – MEXX
WAIST COAT – NEW LOOK
TOP – VINTAGE
JEANS – CHARITY SHOP
BOOTS – ZARA
I got my inspiration from Annie in the film ‘Annie Hall’ I absolutely adore her tomboyish slouchy 70’s style! I also definitely recommend the film, it’s full of dry humour, quirkiness and romance.
Throwing it back
I thought this picture was relevant to todays post so I wanted to share it with you, this is my family back in the 1970’s. My dad is on the first left and just look at how sassy those flares are! I actually asked him if he still had these pants so I could borrow them (unfortunately not haha) next to my Dad is my Nanna, Auntie (who weirdly just looks like me), My Auntie’s friend and my two Uncles. I would have loved to have lived this era! Only if we could time travel ey? Hope you enjoyed my first post as much as I enjoyed sharing it with you!
