70’s Inspired Outfit Post

Inspired by 70’s fashion and the military nod on the Marc Jacobs SS10 runway I mixed vintage fur and wooden platforms with a military shirt and neutral dress for a shopping trip this weekend.

Both the shirt and dress are quite slouchy so I pulled in the waist with an old Girl-Guides belt. When I first put on the military shirt I looked a bit too heavy so I broke up the green with the leopard-print scarf. I’m also getting a little bored with wearing black opaque tights so I went for woollen, over-the-knee socks instead. Left is the look without the vintage fur coat, scroll-down for photo with it on, over the shirt.

I’m reading the Philip Norman biography on the Rolling Stones and it’s keeping my obsession with their style and that of their girlfriends’ in the 60’s, piqued to say the least. This coat was my mother’s and she wore it to a Rolling Stones gig in America when it was new. The shoes are a little later and are nearly impossible to walk in but if I keep to the flat pavements and stay away from the cobbles I can just about manage!

    I have and love that dress! I normally pair is with a brown belt, jeans and brown boots for the daytime and then biker jacket and black tights for the night! Perfect!

      Oh with jeans… I like it! It’s the loveliest dress ever though isn’t it. Roll on summer, I can’t wait to wear it with no layers!

      I know! No wonder I’m obsessed with Vintage with a back-up of pieces like this to ‘borrow’!!!

    This is such a great look, and your photos are so amazing! Definitely giving the American style bloggers more than a run for their money – I’m so impressed! Looking amazing.

    Hey fellow fashionista,
    Absolutely love your style. I work for a marketing team associated with HUE, and we are celebrating leggings as an essential part of a stylish wardrobe by launching a photo contest on HUE’s Facebook page on Tuesday, June 1st at noon and will run until June 5th. Fans can submit a picture rocking their favorite legging look, and we’ll send the first 20 people a free pair of HUE leggings every day for five days! We’ll be showcasing these looks on our Facebook page and spurring conversation around legging do’s & don’ts, trends, etc. Would love for you to come take a look and let us know what you think!
    Here is a link to our Facebook page. Click on the picture of the leggings to enter the contest!
