Fashion has a habit of looking forward and backwards, and sometime's both at the same time. This seasons fashion throwback to the seventies, is all about the good to emerge from what is sometimes seen in history, as a time of of austerity and discontentment.  

They say the cultural life of people changed more during the seventies than any other post war decade. The first color televisions had just started to emerge, there was no email in regular use, and certainly no mobile phones.

 My own very happy memories of the 1970's are of chopper bikes, cassette recorders, space hoppers, and a Mum with a swanky hostess trolley, and a Dad with a Ford Capri.  A bottle of Blue Nun in the fridge, for when my parents had friends round to an Abigails Party style dinner (an iconic TV drama of 70's life and style) serving prawn cocktails, profiteroles and black forest gateau.

There were twenty shillings in a pound, and I had a girl crushes on Ali MacGraw and Bianca Jagger. 

The seventies wasn't a time that fashion forgot,  it was unique, with designers such as Thea Porter, Bill Gibb, Halston and Biba, giving us flares, fringing, flowing bohemian kaftans, 
and maxi dresses.

This seasons rebooted twist on the seventies, has a big hint of nostalgia about it, but somehow as fashion does, it has reworked itself to become as fresh and exciting as the original.....

 Creamy caramel, burnt toffee, biscuit, whatever the 'new' name for camel is, it has been firmly on my radar this season. At it's best with black or similar 'tasty' tones.

Whilst the winter weather is still in full force, excuse the pun, and my love affair with leather pants doesn't stop, it can only mean one thing.........

 It's Cyber O clock, with some serious camel and leather action, which doesn't mean watching Omar Sharif on Netflix. 

The good news is most of it's in the sale.

The bad news is I am off work with a bad back unable to move much, which means I am spending far longer than I care to admit pouring over the Internet, (purely in the name of research you understand.) 

Is Doctor Zhivago actually on Netflix? As that's the only action this bed bound gal is gonna see right now. 

You get the gist?

Well, not so much resolutions, but inspirations and a little
 insight into my route to happiness.

 From family to frivolous these are the
  small things that make the start of the New Year the perfect moment to reflect. With the hectic Christmas holiday's over, taking stock once in a while can be a restorative part of a new beginning.

 We all need to come back down to earth with a quiet walk, a duvet day, or just a pot of freshly brewed tea and a well thumbed book.
 But best of all is the comfort of being with those
 who you know and love the most.
