Into a Seventies groove











Sometimes particular outfits I'm wearing appear as if I've tried to recreate a particular look (e.g. country squire, 1940s, lady who lunches, or schoolgirl) but usually it's completely unintentional; however, for this outfit I really fancied a modern version of a 1970s look. I was admiring my Nine West heels on display at home (too nice to put away), then happened to put my flared jeans into my wardrobe after washing... et voilĂ , one Seventies outfit was dreamt up and one Charlie's Angel wannabe was born. (So as not to look too retro, I kept the hair a little less 70s and a little more now* with a Croydon facelift, complete with hooped earrings. Such a great expression ;)

Kelly Garrett, eat your heart out.

Faux fur collar: H&M, Denim jacket: ASOS, Blouse: F+F, Jeans: Unknown (I'd cut the itchy label out), Belt: Freemans, Heels: Nine West (reduced even more since I bought them! Go get a pair!), Sunglasses: New Look, Watches: both gifts, Black and yellow rings: Gift shop on the south coast, Bracelets: New Look, Headband: Accessorize, Earrings: Unknown, Nails: Nails Inc Black Taxi

*Can anyone tell me what decade we're in? I mean, is it the Teens? 2010s? What's it called...?
