There are certain looks that I revisit time and time again and the 70s frock has become a stalwart in my wardrobe. I think the 70s was the last decade of truly beautiful clothes. The 80s was brash and sometimes interesting, but not beautiful. 90s grunge was cool, while the 00s was horrid. It was the decade of overly straightened hair, bejewelled denim and sparkly butterfly-shaped crop tops. To top if off, everyone was covered in a thick layer of orange fake tan. Britney Spears has a lot to answer for.

My eternal style icons are Stevie Nicks and Kate Bush. I like to imagine myself wafting around a castle carpeted with dry ice, a chorus of backing singers chronicling the narrative of my tragic love story…

Of course, if my fantasy were to become a reality, I would trip on the hem of my diaphanous gown and break a tooth on the stone floor. Then I’d have get on my hands and knees to search for my knocked out tooth amongst the dry ice mist. I’ll stick with the 70s dresses and avoid castles.

This dress is from Glamorous, and the shoes are very old from Next (similar here).
