Seventies fashion.

I do remember the seventies, but I don't remember wearing socks and heels. Especially not yellow ones but strangely enough they look pretty good. Some say the 70's is the decade that style forgot... what do you think?

Vintage Race day fashion.

The first Melbourne Cup was held in 1861 and Archer, the winning horse, collected £170 and a gold watch for his efforts.
Fashions on the field was first held in 1962.
In 1965, British model Jean Shrimpton shocked Flemington by wearing a miniskirt. She also wore no gloves, hat, or stockings. The scandal is often wrongly reported as having happened on Cup day. In fact it was Derby day, three days earlier.
Just five horses have won more than one Cup. Apart from Makybe Diva, they were Archer (1861 and 1862), Peter Pan (1932 and 1934), Rain Lover (1968 and 1969) and Think Big (1974 and 1975).
The photo attached is not from the Melbourne cup but from Kentucky in the USA but I just love the vintage look.

Black pearls

The mysterious black pearl is surrounded by an intricate web of legends, myths, symbols and meanings. It is present in almost all cultures around the world and has been associated with countless folk stories. But no matter where the mythology stemmed from, one thing is certain and universally acknowledged: black pearls are some of the most valuable gems on the planet, being true marks of wealth, power, and wisdom. In our contemporary times, the Tahitian black pearl necklace or a pair of black pearl earrings make more than a statement: they are symbols of refinement, elegance, and class.

Seventies style.

Seventies style.
Love it or hate it? It is loved for its liberalism and the endless creativity at times even leading to little craziness, while others criticize the seventies fashion because of the apparent absence of any style rules and standards. Still, the seventies style is much appreciated for it became a means of expressing the individuality of a person, her unique vision of style and creativity.
