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 voilΓ , 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 πŸ˜‰

Kelly Garrett, eat your heart out.
