..for real. (the jeans)
Although I last wore them tucked into my biker boots and this time they are hanging out in all their flared glory... I love the 70's bellbottom-ness of them, and with ma skivvy here, and ma dip-dyed wrap thing; well, I think I'm just about ready to hop straight into Hair and this is the dawning of the age of Aquariuuuuus!
However, I suspect I'm a little too grey to fit into that era's rainbow-hued colour scheme. I've got the 70's silhouette happening but just not the palette; I'm like a stormcloud-hued depressed moan-groan new millenium version of the 70's here...
My parents had the Hair record and I grew up being uplifted and moved by the joy of those supremely optimistic songs. Yup, I wore flares ands skivvys and tie-dyed stuff the first time around, and you know what they say about if you were there the first time around.... (don't go there the second time around) but I am a child of the 70's so there is no getting away from that. Anyhow fashion-wise just about anything goes now, and so if one wants to dress like a monotonal fallout from another decade then go for it, yeah!

Below; recent naughty purchases, am rapidly becoming a pattern junkie... the two Vogues, completely influenced by shams, whose creations are too terribly superbly tempting to resist emulating; also the Donna Karan maxi from ebay for which I paid ridiculous postage (don't ask, I reckon Americans charge Australians like they are posting to the moon); and the Burdastyle magazine was completely on a whim. I think I need help, is there a patternaholics anonymous...?
