70s look books collection

I adore vintage fashion from a range of eras, but the 70s is the one I’m a lil obsessed with.

Flares, platforms and roll necks jumpers are my kink.

Okay not in that sense of the word, hah! But I do love ‘em. So when I’m in vintage stores, I’m usually looking for a specific 70s piece. If not, I’ll probably end up stumbling upon something from the era and desperately hoping that it fits.

My favourite outfits that I put together are usually 70s inspired so it’s not a surprise that filming 70s look books for YouTube comes to me pretty easily. It also my favourite kind of video to film because I get to pratt about in all my cute outfits. Hah!

That being said, I thought I’d collect all these themed look books I’ve made so far into one space.

So if you feel like the fashion side of your life is lacking some groovy vibes, check out my 70s look books!

Tassels

vintage tasseled jacket
the sun was a tad bright

After not being clothes shopping for a while, I’ve been doing a lot of catching up!!

You may have seen my recent video about the pretty big shop I did in Cow. Well, I went back again last weekend and luckily I didn’t spend as much, but I did find a few more amazing pieces.

One of those things was this insane vintage tasselled jacket.

It’s black and cropped in a funky way. There’s tassels around the front, back and down the sleeves. It’s honestly the jacket of my dreams, ahhh!!

The tag says it’s a size 16 so I was a bit worried it would be too big. I tried it on in the shop just to make sure and it’s not a bad fit at all!! I’d say it fits me like a size 12 jacket would, so I’m guessing it’s just how the sizes have changed over the years. And also the fact that I think it’s American so of course the sizing is different to the UK’s.

Anyway, yeah it has a pretty good fit and gives me such 70s vibes!! It’s helped me rediscover my tan flares that I haven’t been able to wear for a while, because when i got my new coat, the colours were too similar and i just felt beige when I wore them together. Which isn’t how I like to feel, hah.

If it hadn’t of been so cold these last few months I could’ve thrown on another jacket, or not worn one at all, but that was never going to happen. So they’ve just been hanging in my wardrobe looking sad.

Buuuuuuut as soon as i got this jacket home I just knew it would look great paired with these trousers, and what do you know, of course I was right (joking, i’m not that in love with myself haha).

So I’m over the moon about that!! But obviously I’m not wearing those this time. I thought I’d try the tassels with this silver metallic dress.

If I may say so myself, it’s a look! I always struggle with this dress because I’m never sure how I feel about how it hugs my body. This jacket gives it a really nice edge though so it takes the focus away from that.

It’s one of those things that I didn’t know I needed until now.

Strangely the tassels makes me feel fierce. I actually want to wear this jacket every day. If I could, I would. I’m just not sure it’d be suitable for work. Plus, my dog has tried to bite the tassels a few times already so i’ve definitely got to be wise about when i choose to throw it on, hah!

The outfit that was made for me

Do you ever put on an outfit and instantly feel amazing? Even though it’s vain, you can’t stop looking at yourself, because you just feel that good?

Well, that happened to me recently. I went onto ASOS looking for things I needed, one of them being a new pair of jeans after this happenedBut somehow I ended up on ASOS Marketplace with 3 things I didn’t need in my basket.

I say I didn’t need them, but I was getting bored of my wardrobe. I’m in love with everything I ordered so much that now I wouldn’t be without them, so let’s say I just didn’t know I needed them.

My favourite purchase is undoubtedly this co ord. As soon as I first put it on, I was in love.

It’s 3 of my favourite things.

Green, velvet and covered in flowers. Of course that’s what drew me to order the set in the first place, but I didn’t think I’d be so happy with it. It’s elegant yet fierce.

As if the style of it alone wasn’t enough, it fits perfectly. I selected the medium size because that’s usually my go to, but I can’t remember the exact measurements that were on the website. It must have been very close to, maybe even the same, as my size because WOW.

I’ve never had anything fit so good, especially not a co ord. They’re usually so difficult to get in the right size because I’m different sizes on top and bottom. So I usually end up with a shirt a bit too small or something too loose around my waist.

But this one is magical. It hugs in all the right places and is so damn comfy. I could wear it forever.

I feel like it was made for me.

Whenever I usually shoot photos for my blog, I often spend a while deleting the majority of them because I hate my face hah, a shirt isn’t sitting right or something dumb like that. But I loved so many of the pics from this shoot that I’ve included a lot more than I normally would. Oops!

I’m pretty sure that’s because of this co ord. Every time I put it on I feel like it was meant to be. My confidence goes through the roof! Maybe it’s my soulmate. That’s a thing, right?
