How, oh how, oh however have we lived
without making reference to those glorious days of the 70s?
I’m not just talking about the bouffant hair or bell bottoms. It was also a time of Ziggy Stardust, androgynous dressing and the power of the flower child. It thrills my heart to no end that runways have been answering the siren call of that decade, showing look after look with subtle (and some not so subtle) nuances that immediately call the 70s to mind.
It seemed fitting that Project Sister Act 3 should be all about that 70s show 🙂
I wanted something a little hippy but without being too Woodstock and dated. Finding this dress hiding in the very deep recesses of my closet was a boon particularly as the side cut-outs ensured a contemporary feel.
Harking back to accessories of then which were predominantly fabricated from natural elements, I strung some Faux Pearls (wooden beads, actually) which are actually from the 70s. I nicked it from my mum (love you!). The ring? Fabric. The shoes. Well, wedges were a given, yes?
Centre-parted hair, absolutely de rigueur.
Those darling little polka dots. Polka dots always make me smile.
This month, I am so blessed to be able to share Project Sister Act with some really cool, really fantastic like-minded ladies who are clearly living the moment. Fully embracing the adage that age is but a perception coined by societal expectations. From teens to 50s, allow me to present Eve, Ashia, Rachel and Shelley. And me.
Eve, Teens (theworldaccordingtoeve)
Ashia, 20s (thecolorfashion)
Rachel, 30s (rachelthehat)
Shelley, 50s (stillblondeafteralltheseyears)
And there you have it. That 70s Show, a Project Sister Act initiative. Can you tell we had loads of fun? Would you do the 70s again? Which style aspect appeals to you most?

Thanks for featuring me. So great to be part of this project. I’d love to give it a go whenever you have a opening.
You were just awesome, Shelley, in how you embraced the theme and went all out. I loved yours and Eve’s looks best. Perfectly in tune with the era yet neither costumey nor tacky xoxo
How fun! Love the 70’s!

Those shoes rock! Love it.. Living vicariously through you and the cool shoes I cant wear! I love the florals, you know I am a flower child. ( in a sense)
Now I know why you can’t wear heels as high as the ones I do 🙂 it would be very difficult, I imagine, but oh to be even a modicum of your height, Jess, le sigh. I shall wear them all and so too you, even if spiritually/visually/emotionally GRIN Happy Belated Easter to you too xoxo

What a gorgeous floral dress, ideal for a Spring time party! And those heels are spectacular! 🙂 xo~ Lena
Thanks SO much, Lena 🙂 I saw a peek of your post today, about brittle hair et al, I must go read xoxo
This dress is beautiful! I love the cutouts on the sides and the floral print is stunning.
It’s such a dream of dress but I must say, I had no idea the neckline was quite all the way down to there until I felt a gentle breeze 😀
Love that you show the look for all ages. What a great dress and I love the ring. Thanks for linking up for Style Saturday. xo ~ Megan The Fashionista Momma
It’s so important that while we keep in mind certain style “commandments”, it is still all about dressing for ourselves and having fun 🙂
The 70’s were a very fashionable decade. Thanks for linking up at Who’s Wearing What Wednesdays at Pastries, Pumps and Pi!
Thank YOU for providing a platform for me to meet so many like-minded awesome women xoxo
A great round up of ladies! I love those fun wedges! Thank you for joining TBT Fashion link up and hope to see you Thursday.
You absolutely shall, Alice. You have inspired me to look at the colours Green and Orange and Yellow from quite different perspectives.
Absolut in love with the pattern of the blue dress!!!!
