I love the 1920s, I like the 40s and the 60s, I am obsessed with the 50s, but the 70s were never one of my favorite decades about style. Well, things change, I am changing, and style is an adventurous journey for me, am ongoing process in which I discover myself and I constantly develop. Charlie's Angels was one of the TV-series I watched as a kid until my early teens so the looks of Kelly, Sabrina, Kris and (who can forget) Jill are still in my head as memories. Stylish memories to say the least. Also, American Hustle movie and the looks of Amy Adams played a huge part in me wanting to revisit and re-evaluate this decade. It's a promise (and a threat) that you will be seeing more of the 1970s from now on and I can't wait to share them with you.
While I was planning to share with you my favorite looks from Valentino's Haute Couture Fall 2015 Collection I bumped into THIS post from Cool Chic Style Fashion. And I changed my mind: There was no way I would post the runway photos instead of these masterpieces from Vogue Italia's editorial! Divine Grecian - Roman princesses/goddesses in black velvet and see-through maxi dresses in a setting of ancient ruins (I guess somewhere in Italy) wearing tiaras!! I close my eyes and I am there, with them, standing on a rock (to look tall) and super ecstatic... Come join me =)
See the entire collection here. You will find extremely hard to decide which one from the 59 looks is prettier, more regal and more flattering, because they are. The slits, the deep v-necks, the stringed waists, I loved everything about this collection.
I love pink, not the Barbie-pink, the lighter version. The one coming out of girly dreams with unicorns, clouds of cotton candy and rivers of marshmallows... I also like big, full skirts with a high waist. I find them super feminine and elegant, because they look flattering on any body type, height and weight. Those two together make the perfect combination of what I consider "the perfect skirt". And so I found it, on Chicwish, of course...
However, there is a tiny detail I must share with you: I had to cut it in a very discreet mullet because it was too long for me (or I was too short for it) and looked really awkward on the front. Thanks to the incredible Mr Yannis, my awesome tailor, the skirt looks diviner (if this is even a word...) So, in case you decide to buy the skirt, please bare in mind that it does NOT look like this and the mullet design on the hem was my idea! Fell free to copy it, haha
Ever since I was a child, I remember choosing to be brave, speak my mind, do my thing and suffer the consequences, if any. This attitude really worked for me across all the stages while growing up and so I kept it and evolved it. I am willing to take chances, fall and rise up again, embrace failure, point out my mistakes and regroup for the next 'battle'. For as long as I can remember myself, I am that kind of person. Some find it annoying and irritating. I find it fascinating. I push my boundaries and I open my eyes and mind, I educate myself on many levels. Couldn't be happier I've followed this path and brought me here, talking to you, and can't wait to see what the future holds.
