Back to the 70’s

In recent years we’ve worn the best of the 20s and 30s, seen the rebirth and fading of an 80s come back, and we’re just about to do it all again. But this time, its the 1970s that are due for a reinterpretation.  While 70′s fashion is making waves and sure to continue on as a fashion trend in 2011, let’s not forget that there are several variants. And you know what that means; all the more ways to get lots of wear out of your key seventies pieces, by taking them from 70′s boho to a more sophisticated 70′s look.

By day it’s all about clean yet voluminous silhouettes, and earthy 70′s colour palettes.

One of the things that is coming back from the 70′s is the High waisted wide-leg pants. The pants i am wearing today is the boyfriend shorts in brown from Deetalez. By this pants you can choose to use a belt or the version i am wearing today with a highwaist Bow. Roll neck sweaters tucked into pants or skirts are also something that comes back from the 70′s. I didnt choose for a sweater but for the Miraji Body Black designed by CheerNo. One of the effects from the 70′s is working with layers and over my body top i am wearing the Chocolat Short Trench jacket from Maitreya.

The hair i am wearing is the Christina – caramel from Truth. I also like to mention that the 100% of the payment of this hairs (and all hair from truth untill september 19th) goes to the UNICEF Pakistan Flood Crisis Fund.  Today’s skin is the LAQ ~ Elena skin (fair) wich gave me this natural look.

My brown shoes are the Dncorde Danse boots from LeeZu. I have blogged them before but they are just the perfect combi for me with this outfit.

To finish my outfit i am using the brown/gold nails from Mandala and this cute Big Clutch brown bag is from So many Styles

Think you again have some great things to shop about. All designes come in more colors so you can mix and match until you drop 😉

Military Fashion

During some styling this weekend i came up with this fine stylish combination of designs. I was getting told to be inspired by the rl Military Fashion and this was something i needed to dare to do and i must say i mixed and matched all the way haha.

Military fashion as a trend is nothing new. But with all that’s going on in the world the military trend couldn’t be more present-day and that’s why this look refuses to submit as it keeps evolving into new variations.

This season designers rl and on sl took their inspiration browsing through every military uniform era in the archives. From Napoleonic styled jackets with high stand collars to gold bordered hussar influenced garments to admiral coats, the military jacket is a winter fashion statement. Think metal buttons and stick to colours like navy, grey and even red. Leave khaki hues for the spring season. Add a bit of runway glamour by teaming up the jacket with jeans or jersey dresses and knee high boots.

First i started with my jacket. The jacket you are seeing is a part of the Diram Cheryl Attire. The black top under my jacket is coming from Cynthia Smit, i used the partygirl top in black/silver. To get a good trendy pants i thought that would be difficult but when you want something original why dont you go to CheerNo, they also have some female designs (and i hope they will make more of them). The pants is the CheerNo Femme Samy Pants and just look at those cool details at the sides of the pants.

Then we get to a point where we need boots hahaa and that was one of the hardest stuff because you want something trendy and dont endup with shoes you always wear so i choose the black western boots from J’s 

Something i love to use are those female gloves where you see some of your vingers and hands, i remember i saw them at xplosion and used the blacklace space gloves from them. The nails i am using are from Caithlin Carter (the diva black nails). The belt is from Mandala, and the sunglasses are from Steinwerk Designs. My earrings come from Glow Studio today and last but not least is my hair from Argrace and is named the Military Cap “Loose Chignon”.

Poses today are from Di’s Opera
