I found this book in Oxfam recently and after flipping through the pages I decided I had to bring it home with me. The illustrations are really sweet and for a vintage fan like myself, truly inspiring. I didn’t know of the existence of this magazine as I am a recent transplant to the UK and also too young to have seen it originally but I liked it immediately.
The book features mostly fashion tips, all sorts of advice for young girls and BOYS! Most of it is illustrated and sometimes I wish I had all the clothes.
Western style, yeeehaw!
You can never go wrong with ghingham, in all shapes and sizes!
The Autumn hints are just in time – the shoes actually seem quite contemporary, don’t you think?
One of the boy crush pages. Some of the choices are highly questionable- Gary Glitter? Barf…. But then, it was the 70’s, what did they know? haha.
You can get your very own copy of this book on Amazon here.
So much that I recalled the bell bottoms I had back in my Lisbon apartment and thought I had to bring them over so I could wear them again. So here I am wearing one of them. I have a couple more I need to get next time I go to Lisbon!

So, what is your take on bell bottoms? Yay or nay?
