Etam Coat // Vintage Dress, Sunglasses & Bag / Maison Martin Margiela Boots
As you know, the seventies are back in fashion. Again. Actually, I don’t recall it ever losing its allure on fashion, film or music. Guess it’s difficult not to be attracted to the era’s carefree, youthful and glamorous spirit. And it is equally hard to resist A-line skirts, butter soft suedes, long floral dresses and white peasant blouses! They are all so flattering!
I’m chuffed to have a few originals from the ’70s in this ensemble: these oversized shades and the knit dress. I bought the rosey frock from a vintage market in Canberra years ago and was informed that the original owner of the dress had it specially made for her daughter’s wedding. However, on the day, she chose a different dress, so this frock remained unworn as a new vintage original!
As much as I want to become a minimalist and give my wardrobe an overhaul, there are some gems that are worth holding onto. Good things don’t date. They just come back in fashion.
