I’ve always thought the 70’s got too much of a bad rep. Yeah, sometimes the home decors were a bit too brown and some clothes a bit over the top and in a bad way. I still don’t think we should throw away a whole decade because of a few faux pas. I mean, why do we think we are so stylish? I always wonder what our descendants will say about the see-through legging trend… I sincerely think it’s a lot worse than many of the 70’s styles. When I look at the Cholas by Irregular Choice (worn below), all I can think of is 70’s. Look at them and at the amazing shoe adverts below. Aren’t they amazing?
To what I believe was my workmates amusement and giggles, I wore this 70’s style ensemble to the office, complete with the I-can-barely-walk shoes. I still like the outfit though… Mind you that I had to keep the hat in place with my hand as the wind never stopped. I realized that is why I rarely wear it!
Details: Hat – H&M (also worn here), Shirt – Stradivarius, Furry vest – Primark (also worn here), Green Jumper – Zara, Cords – Vintage White Tab Levi’s, inherited from my great aunt, Bangles – Poundland (classy, I know), Bag – traditional “choukaras” bag from Morocco worn as a clutch, Shoes – “Cholas”, by Irregular Choice
There’s a funny story about this bag. When I went to Morocco I decided I wanted to try and find a bag just like the one I’d been playing with at my grandparent’s when I was a kid. It was a bag someone had brought back from Morocco for my Mum back in the 60’s but somehow I have no idea what happened to it. It didn’t take too long. One day as I was walking down the souk I found it and of course, I had to get it.
Yup, they’re real white tab Levi’s.
How about you? Do you like 70’s style?
