It’s no secret that I’m an online shopping addict. The comfort of shopping from home in my Jammies and the thrill of awaiting my favorite little Latin UPS man is unparalleled to my experiences in any shopping center or boutique store.
Needless to say one of my favorite online stores is NastyGal. Every so often we update our wishlist and slowly but surely manage to spend a sizable bit of chump-change checking purchased items off the list one by one.
So once again, here we are mid-July and we’ve already gotten our hands on all of the covetables from our initial summer lust-list. Soooooo in the spirit of capitalism and all things American, I’ve started a new wishlist which I’m compelled to share with you now… So without further adieu- Lights…Camera…Action!
To many, the 70′s are synonymous with Sex, Drugs, and Rock n’ Roll. The Studio 54 era was one of pleasure and indulgence, dressed up in spandex, platforms and polyester. And amid all the glitter and disco, fashion icons like Farrah Fawcett, Liza Minelli, and our personal favorite, Bianca Jagger were born.
The looks of the 70′s are iconic, and continue to influence fashion trends years after disco has been long dead; starting with the bell bottom/baby tee craze of the 1990′s, and now coming full circle for Summer 2011 with the resurgence of everything from hot-pants to satin jumpsuits and chiffon maxi dresses.
Inspired by the infamous nightclub vixen Bianca Jagger, our bold/femme look below is pure Studio 54- sexed up Boho/Glam-style with shimmering metallics and plunging necklines.
