I have a soft spot for 70s fashions, they're generally very flattering, fun, and when done right, chic. Most things to come out of that era however, are made of polyester, a fabric I just can't wear. Luckily my favorite designer of the decade, Diane Von Furstenberg is still going strong, even re-releasing some of her prints and designs in a "vintage" line. This is one of those dresses, and my favorite out of the three currently in my closet.
And of course, I had to add some huge rose colored glasses I got at an estate sale, even though they don't really go with my normal 40s and 50s style, I love them just the same :)

Dress-Diane Von Furstenberg

Tights-Macys

Shoes-Chie Mihara

Jade necklace-A gift from Sam on our honeymoon, Chinatown, San Francisco

Gorgeous! I know what you mean about polyester. And I love your green necklace! x

You look lovely!! I never buy 70s either because of their awful penchant for polyester, but I always fancied the DVF wrap dresses. They look quite timeless and even a little 40s <3

I too have a soft spot for the 70's in fact "soft spot" is the term I use for it.There is good and bad in every decade when it comes to fashion but as much as there was a ton of polyester there are some really amazing pieces too!

Love the 70's! It's a great decade to mix with older pieces. Probably because the 70's woman wore vintage as well! Wrap dresses are just about my most favorite thing ever. From casual to dressy, and it's soooo comfortable. I could never pick only one decade to dress from, they all had fun parts. Even the awful 80's! This one here is super cute, and you can't beat a pair of big ol sunnies.

Lovely dress :)

Wow. I actually sort of loathe the 70s (sorry!) but you make it look fantastic! All of the Charlie's Angels rolled into one. You are great for pulling off such different looks. I am totally one dimensional I'm afraid - I can do 1950s and that's it! (still a great decade to be one dimensional in!) Best, VS

You look gorgeous! Although it's quite weird to see you in seventies attire, I have to say that it suits you just as well as your full circle dresses do.

Growing up, I had a hand-me-down Diane Von Furstenburg wrap dress in purple from a neighbor...whatever did I do with that dress? I regret giving it away. Oh well!

Maria Ramona said...

DVF rocks! It's good to see 70s fashions featured on a vintage blog - some of them were really quite cool, but it's a decade that's pretty much overlooked by the online vintage community.

You look so sophisticated and classy, Solanah! :) I too love some of the 70s styles, though I tend to gravitate towards the romantic/hippie style a bit more. But even though the 70s had a lot of "ick" style-wise, it still had some good points! :)

Love this! I wish I could devote my life to 60's and 70's fashions as you devote yours to 40'5 and 50's.
