I’ve got a bit of a seventies vibe going on with today’s outfit; it’s definitely intentional as I seem to have caught the retro bug lately. I’ve just ordered a gorgeous trouser suit that’s very loud, possibly bordering on obnoxious. I can only imagine the comments my mum will make, but the heart wants what the heart wants! In the meantime, while waiting for my parcel of retro fabulousness, I’m making the most of what I already own. Pairing velvet and snake print seemed like a good place to start!
The velvet jacket I wore in last week’s link up post prompted me to pull another one of my charity shop bargains out of the wardrobe. In all honesty, the thing I’m most looking forward to when lockdown restrictions are lifted is pottering around charity shops again…I’m not bothered about pubs and restaurants in the slightest!
This jacket only cost me a few pounds but it’s really good quality. Initially I was planning to wear a tie-neck blouse with it but this high neck top works better. The velvet and snake print create a retro feel, especially with the slightly flared jeans and fedora. It’s a look that’s still very much in style today though. The snake print bag and lace up shoes add to that seventies vibe. All I need now is to master that Farrah Fawcett hair flick!
