Don’t you just love fashion at the moment? It is right up my street. I love the 70’s influence. I can’t get enough double-denim, flares, fringing and anything suede. For a girl born in 1970 and who grew up wanting to be a ‘Charlies Angel’ it’s a dream come true. I’m no spring chicken but this look works for all ages. You just have to adjust your hem lengths accordingly.
Here’s a pick of some recent, and some not so recent purchases I’ve made.
I’ve been rocking my dark denim River Island flares for a few months now. The fit and length are just perfect. At 5ft 10 I’m usually either sporting a rather ugly camels toe or looking like an extra from Star Trek, with trousers Captain Kirk would be proud of ( half way up my leg!)
First up are my new Bags from Dune. I like a bag big enough so I could ( if I wanted too) carry the kitchen sink around with me. So this one below is ideal.
I also treated myself to a slightly smaller tan bag that can be worn across the body, and is featured on the pictures below.
Got to love some double denim (above)
I’m trying to co-ordinate my wardrobe, so my outfits, can be mixed and matched. I’m favouring all things tan and cream at the moment. And denim…don’t forget my beloved denim.
I have a couple of denim dresses, which If you follow me on IG, I’m sure you will have seen by now. I’m boring the world to death with my denim dress fetish!
A few weeks ago, while mouching around H & M I stumbled upon this faux suede mac. I loved it on the hanger and even better on.
My boyfriend refers to it as my Inspector Gadget Flasher Mac…He hates it but what’s he know eh?! I wear it over dresses, worn with knee high boots and with both my skinny and flared jeans. I honestly love it.
I spotted this lovely Poppy Boho Blouse yesterday in the window of Dorothy Perkins and at just £26 I snapped it up. They had it teamed with a rather short tan suede skirt. It looked great but it was maybe a little too short for myself.
I’m wearing it today with my flares, but I liked the look of it with the skirt, so I’m on the hunt for a slightly longer version. I spotted one in Marks & Spencers weeks ago which I wish I had bought now! Typical.
And lastly my new tan knee length boots, worn above – on their first outing yesterday to go shopping.
I had a nightmare trying to find a pair that fitted correctly. I found most pairs I tried on were gappy at the back of the calf. My legs aren’t particulary skinny but it just looked wrong? Add to that my dodgey ‘ it may be broken foot’ and I am well and truly hampered.
Thankfully Dune came to the rescue and the boots I choose – Topaz – fit like a dream. More than I would normally pay at £169 but hopefully a good investment . Square toe, knee length and I do love a block heel.
So there you have it …my ever growing 70’s inspired wardrobe. Mixing and matching my way into winter.
Have you seen anything I should add ….tell me, tell me!
Until next time, Tracey x
