Still in keeping with all things seventies, I've compiled my own must-have lust list. And then some, because attempting to keep within a five to six piece limit proved utterly impossible. For fashion in the seventies it was a wonderful whirlwind of colour. From folk to fringe and crochet to neutrals, anything went as long as it felt right. The seventies saw the attempt of eliminating boundaries and conformities. Freedom and love reigned and were to some point expressed through fashion. These days, when the modern era reminisces on the subject we notoriously associate it with bell bottoms, suede and fringing. Ultimately limiting and excluding ourselves from the droves of exuberant prints and bohemian like embellishments that too came from those days. Though most designers have embraced it fully, like Isabel Marant's major folk references (here and here) throughout her collections, same with Tamara Mellon (also see here and here). And of course Saint Laurent's playful star embellishments that have taken centre stage. An embellishment which I've never been a fan of period, seeing as though I've always viewed that traditional form of a star to be somewhat tacky. Yet there is something that makes one yearn for those dainty little stars, be it adorned on bucket bags or stitched onto clothing. Ms Slimane sure does know how to work wonders, doesn't she?

Peace.

  9. Well, I'm seriously obsessing over this post right now Sonia. From that amazing romper in that absolutely gorgeous red color to the bralette that I see myself wearing underneath blouses, I'm loving the seventies trend right now. Odd, since I've never looked back at the seventies for inspiration but now I do. I'm much more drawn to the bohemian side of the it all with a touch of contemporary. Ugh and I can't forget my love for plunging necklines. Daring I know, but they're just so good right now!

    1. That bralette is super special Kat and plunging necklines, girl I've been all about them for years. Personally I don't think there is anything too daring about them. That said I also don't have the most envious chest either so... LOL xx

  10. Definitely yes! And Im in the same feeling Sonia, maybe cause the summer makes me feel more in that way, hope to keep my '70s mood even for the next season. For now, give me those flares and bag! Hugs to you! xo

  11. I'm definitely feeling the 70's vibes!! I only wish I had the balls to rock flares! Xx

  26. How freaking cool is that aviator?! I've never seen one like that before and it's such a trendy piece to have! The only 70's theme clothes that I have in my wardrobe is a boot cut jeans from Guess, it took me a long tine to find one that suits me and didn't make me look like an old hippie. LOL!

  35. It's funny because the period ALWAYS comes back (At least in terms of fashion!) I do admit to majorly liking the wine top you featured. I've also been looking for my old mild bellbottoms (too big now!) At least we know the style lives on if we collect a few pieces inspired by the era.
