Hello, lovelies!

It is no secret that this summer fashion is taking a blast from the past. The 1970s are back. This season has borrowed the highlights of the era (flares, suede and experimental prints) and revamped them with a contemporary twist. Leading retailers ASOS and BooHoo have even dedicated sections of their websites to the trend. 

I can't help but fall in love with the nostalgic designs currently available, but despite my admiration of the 70s revamp, I find myself picking up the vintage items in my wardrobe. A remake is a nice homage, but it's just not the real thing.

Dress - Vintage
Bag - Vintage
Sandals - Zara

This dress fills me with flower power vibes and dreams hippie goodness. The abstract print is comparable to the gorgeous creations of vintage Emilio Pucci with remnants of the '64 Unikko print by iconic design house Marimekko. Although I adore the print of this authentic dress, for me, it is the collar that gives it oomph. Oversized collars are what 70s dreams are made of.

There is something undoubtedly fascinating about being able to recreate the past, and with my mum's high-school bag slung over my shoulder, my nostalgic yearning has never been stronger. This dress has been part of my wardrobe for a few years now, yet I tend to neglect it until I undergo a wave of desire for all things vintage. Recently, I've been lusting over Chloé's summer 2015 collection - one of the leading brands during the 70s now recreates the styles beautifully.

^literally falling over^

  1. Completely agree can't beat some good vintage. Gorgeous print on that dress

    1. Exactly! Thank you! I absolutely fell in love with the print! x

  2. I have to say, I was a little 'meh' about the whole 70s trend by this point, BUT THIS IS DONE SO RIGHT!!! I toootally got Pucci from that print, what a fab find! And that end quote - perfect. Also really appreciate you sharing the photo of you falling over - thought I was the only one that happened to on shoots!

    Sinéad xo ♥ fabuleuse, toujours ♥

     I am overjoyed because my prayers have finally been answered,i have always wished to have my ex husband back,because i wanted my family to be happy again, until i met DR JUMBA who solved my problems for me, and i am sharing this testimony because i believe they are people out there who need solutions to problems like this. When my ex husband left me I was very much devastated and I always wanted back and it got to a period I no longer wanted him back again. After 7 years, my first son was 12 years old, he came home from school and said he was missing his father and all the love he showed when he was around him. The feeling rushed through me like an emotional straining and I had a huge urge to have him back. What happened to us that we separated was what I couldn't think of what started the fight. I contacted DR JUMBA online after reading about him of how he has been helping other people with their problems. I contacted his email at wiccalovespelltools@gmail.com and I was able to speak with him. I am happy and very overjoyed that after 7 years, all I wanted was to be reunited with my family and make my life whole again. Thank God for this great and real spell caster DR JUMBA. and i want everyone who have same problem as i had to contact this great man at (wiccalovespelltools@gmail.com)or you can add him up on his whatsapp via +19085174108 , website : drjumbaspellhome.wordpress.com
