Can You Dig It

green spots

Thanks in part to my over-sized sunglasses, my whole ensemble in this post is giving me a faint 1970s vibe. I think all I need is a lower neckline (à la Amy Adams in American Hustle) and a flare-panted Vinnie Barbarino to hang my arm on, and I'll be all set to boogie on down.

I used to watch old reruns of Charlie's Angels and Three's Company as a kid, and - rampant bralessness in the female characters aside - '70s style seemed really appealing to me. The silhouette was lean, loose and easy. Lots of slim flared jeans, tall wedges and slender low-cut blouses. Looooooong hair, California tans, and bright toothy smiles.

So here's me inadvertently channeling a bit of 1978 for 2014. Happy Wednesday!

  1. Ha! I have that exact same top but it doesn't button half as nicely on me as it does you. Stunning, as per usual! Happy Hump Day!

  4. Oh my gosh - those were two of my favorite shows when I was a kid. You know, Lisa, you would look so great with a Farrah Fawcett "feathered" hairdo! Love the '70's style.

    1. I think as a kid watching reruns, I didn't get all the jokes or innuendos, but the slapstick was fun!

    1. I need to do the 80s next, but I don't think I have enough hair product or big enough shoulder pads!

  12. I thought of Cheryl Ladd in the late 70's and early 80's. This dress is very cute and reminds me of the nice 70's clothes.
    I watched Charlie's Angels and Three's Company during the first run which ages me. I loved Charlie's Angels and I don't think I missed an episode.
    Thanks for sharing,

    1. Is it me, or were all the chicks from the 70s all long, lean and leggy? Or was it the wonder of the high-waisted, flare-legged jeans?!

  13. Great shoe choice! I agree with you that there is something very appealing about '70s style. It's relaxed, yet not sloppy. I have a pair of flare jeans that I haven't worn enough ... might just have to break them out soon!
