70s Fashion Lust List

Now I have an obsession with 70s fashion, I've always had alternative vintage tastes, I do like to mix it up, I once had a style that could have been considered 80s wife of a famous darts player - it really was quite a look. I like a lot of things late 60s/70s, my eventual home will be brown, orange, dark green, mustard, dark floral, rich velvets and wood, lots of wood. So I try and get my fashion to match, but I like what I like. Having been born in 1982 I didn't quite live through the 70s but of course I did have hand me downs from them. Reflecting on fashion is always hard as the photos in the fashion books are usually representative of high-end, fashion show creations - you want a true idea of the fashion from an era you need to look at the photo albums of everyday folk.

The current trend for 70s fashion makes it easier to pick up pieces, as a lot of the material in the 70s wasn't very breathable so it can be hard to pick up items in decent condition so I have a slight preference for new retro items.

I have of of course created a major wishlist on pintrest of new 70s fashion items I would love to pick up, Revisiting 70s Fashion, if I can pick up a fifth of what is on my list I'll be very happy. These are just a few clothes inspired by an eclectic era.

70s Fashion Revisited


  1. I love this 70's vibe! So chic!

  2. Super nice selection! These items are pieces that we can mix with more modern pieces so it gives the 70s vibe but does not look as though we time travelled!
