disco era

Good morning! I hope you all had lovely weekends – isn’t it always so hard to drag yourself out of bed on a Monday morning when you’ve had an especially nice weekend? But just repeat after me, “four-day week, four-day weekend, four-day week, four-day…” – I think you get the idea. Feel better already? Good.
Now, how do you feel about the return (once again) of all things 70s? For me, done right it can look gorgeous, from laid-back, breezy shirts and flared, high-waisted jeans, to ultra-glam Studio 54 inspired looks. Seen on the likes of Rosie H-W, J-Lo and Camilla Belle, this trend is perfect for the upcoming summer months filled with festivals (although not for me, I’m allergic), picnics in the park and special nights out that require opulence and big hair. A word of caution, though… touches of 70s rather than going head-to-toe hippy will prevent you looking like you’re on the way to a fancy dress party. Jewel tones (à la Gucci S/S11) are perfect for adding that luxe feeling, and be sure to super-size your platform heels, brims of hats, sunglasses, wooden bangles and sleeves. What do you think of the trend? Groovy or outdated?

    I knew we should have kept the swirly blue carpet in the lounge. It was vintage.
