70s Chic: The Girl Across the Room

What is it about 70s style that feels daring, beautiful and comforting all at the same time?  It must be all those faded yellow-tinted photos of seeing our parents looking great at parties, smoking cigarettes, dancing, laughing all in high waist bell-bottoms.   The glamour was permanently sealed in our memories with Penelope.  The girl across the room … back then nobody apologized for partying, period.

With this stagnant, rough economy it’s no surprise we turn to purchasing fashion pieces we intuitively understand.  Nothing’s more comforting than the familiar and many high fashion designers seem to agree.

Think: Flowing fabrics, soft and feminine silhouettes, plunging necklines, high waist bell-bottoms, chunky bracelets, floppy hats, ankle strap platforms, cinched waists all in warm honey neutrals as a base color with citrus and blue hues as your accent colors.   Let the good times roll….

  2. Veronica – Love the halter tops! Everything you show has a ’70s spirit, but looks updated and fresh. I have a vintage ’70s green polka dot halter jumpsuit that I can only wear on Halloween!
