Gucci Style Without Breaking the Bank.

Vintage Dress -  70s 80s Gloria VANDERBILT Navy SILK Secretary Dress
On the  Gucci catwalk Frida Giannini favoured the 70s and Studio 54 style, which I love.  But as I have champagne taste and lemonade money I thought I would have a rummage around vintage shops and find the same style on a budget.  Bows are so 'on trend' this season and this divine Gloria Vanderbilt Navy Silk 'Secretary Dress' from RunAroundSueVintage just oozes 70s feminine style.

Another snuggly collar, perfect! This vintage cardigan is from Decades.

I'm always coveting this 'south western' style of cardigan - I promise myself one every winter, maybe this year.  This Vintage Bell Sleeve Cardigan is at FashionHouseVintage.

What a fab Sierra Tapestry Wrap Coat, I'm a sucker for those furry collars. I found it at MadFabVintage.

Vintage 70s secretary blouse with removable pleated bow-collar and geometric print.Made by Lucky Winner.Size Small
I had to slip in another pussycat bow as they are so big this season.  This vintage secretary blouse is from VezaVe.

A few gorgeous clothes from a time when clothes were made to last, 30-40 years can't be wrong.

Do you have any favourite 70s styles?

That maxi dress and the pants suit remind me of another glamourous era, the 30's. I can see Ginger being whisked around the dance floor in that emerald number.
