Woo-hoo! It’s my first outfit post for 2016. I am excited to show off this outfit, which was worn for a trip down to Melbourne to catch up with friends and do a little shopping.
This outfit comes close to being my dream outfit. I felt like a million bucks wearing this ensemble, which was inspired by Stevie Nicks and Janis Joplin. Although I love vintage styles from many different eras, the 70’s is possibly my favourite decade to draw inspiration from. I love the bright colours and earthy tones. I adore the contrast between the form-fitting garments that hug the body and billowy fabrics that are lighter than air. I like the rock-and-roll vibe and I feel so sexy when I wear a 70’s inspired outfit. It’s the decade that I feel fits me best, and the styles from that era also really flatter my body, which makes me feel even sexier.
I am wearing:
- Black felt hat from Coo Ca Choo
- Black tank top from H & M
- Black lace trousers from H & M’s Coachella collection
- Brown Zu platform shoes (thrifted)
- Red kimono duster (gifted)
- Body chain from Louvisa
- Four leaf clover ring from Grandma Funk
- Moonstone ring from Louvisa
The day I wore this was mostly spent on public transport and lounging in bed at The Windsor with Miss Fairchild. And I was crazy comfy. These trousers have loads of give and aren’t stiff or scratchy as lace can sometimes be. I had so much fun swishing about in this kimono duster, which was a Christmas gift from my parents. My body chain has become pretty much my favourite piece of jewelery this summer because it is the ideal way to give a little hippie-meets-BDSM vibe to any outfit (an aesthetic that I’m so into).
I think it’s fair to say that this outfit comes darn close to being perfect for me. It was comfy and sexy, touched on my favourite vintage decade and had some head-turning details. Awesome!
What would your perfect outfit look like?
