VINTAGE FILM INSPIRATION WITH JD WILLIAMS

Hi Everyone
Just before Christmas I was approached by JD Williams for a blogger challenge. The idea was to steal someones style. There were several categories to choose from, one being film. I chose to go back in time to the seventies.........



I had a browse through their site (some great sale bargains to be had here I might add) and fell for this Tapestry Boho Dress, from their  Bohemian winter range. This reminds me of so many films from early to late seventies, Annie Hall, The Graduate, Love Story, the list is endless......



I love the way it feels on, very light and swishy. Great detailing with black edged cuffs and tassel's at the neckline....
I had a dress like this back in the late seventies, I so wish I had a picture of it to share. This really was like going back in time and I love this JD Williams one just as much...



 I chose to accessorise it with a fedora hat (Just removed due to wind force!)  and this suede slouchy bag to tie in with the seventies trend....


I am really pleased with my high heeled leather and suede knee high boots I received for Christmas too, they finished the look off perfectly.
It really is worth while to look at the JD Williams site, they have some beautiful pieces on there. You can find the dress HERE

XO Laurie

  3. Happy New Year. These boots are awesome. Great find. I love that they are normal leather around the foot, suede along the calf. Despite that makes a horizontal line, it does not matter as it is the same color. The leather makes them so much more usable than plain suede boots.

    You really pull that elegant Bohemian style off. A modern Ali McGraw.

    Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style. It is always great to see you at the party
