I've always been a mad 70s girl but the late 70s early 80s is what I'm looking to for inspiration right now. The poster girl for this look is Catherine Baba. J'adore her flamboyance and 20s/30s/disco look. A lot of the 70s were influenced by 20s &30s style and she does it so well....what I would do for that tassel red cape coat!
Looks like I will be making more turbans.... I have been mucking around with my turban pattern for awhile now and have some beautiful red crushed velvet to use, they are genius for my bad hair days! Kimono's are essential to this look as well, and so is a frizzy fringed hairstyle...which I have with a bit of teasing! Don't be afraid to try this out ladies.
