Seventies Revival x Xpose Magazine

Lately life has felt like an absolute whirlwind. In a lovely way. And as the days start to get longer I get more and more excited to spend Summer in Dublin. There is no place I would rather be!
I've been working a lot more on my fashion styling & journalism path than ever before. I was so excited to feature in the March issue of Xpose Magazine rocking my 1970's style and giving some tips. The pictures were shot by my good friend & amazing photographer Evan Doherty.
As a Fashion Stylist, Blogger & Personal Shopper a big part of my life is keeping my finger on the pulse - after all fashion is like one big circle! The seventies is back in full swing after being reignited last season by high end brands like Miu Miu & Giambattista Valli. I love seeing these catwalk to streetstyle trends interpreted by the masses. Thigh high boots, textured minis, fringing and flares have re-emerged. ‘It Girl’ Alexa Chung’s ‘AC for AG’ collection is my current craving. It’s flirty, fun and effortless just like Alexa. My personal style is an eclectic blend of vintage, designer and high street. I’m wearing a light denim off the shoulder AC for AG dress which is a versatile little investment at €245 from BT2. It can be dressed up & down. My pearl necklace is Chanel and my loafers are ‘Betty Jackson Black’ teamed with a John Rocha Electric navy patent bag both from Debenhams. My fringed brown suede jacket was a steal at €70 from online Galway retailer Cotton Face Vintage. It’s perfect for festivals and channelling your inner Lana Del Rey. My gold costume rings are from Aldo - my one stop shop for cute boxy clutches and jewellery. My top tip for embracing the seventies trend is giving it a contemporary twist. Mixing glossy patent and bright denim adds a chic finish. When seeking the perfect 70's jacket and retro mini dress I find consignment & online vintage stores like Nine Crows are my ultimate hunting ground.

Hope you like the look! :)
