70's vibe streetstyle

Galway and Flares

Hi all Style Gamblers,

As you might know, couple of weeks ago we traveled to Galway for our first proper blogger event. We obviously planned our trip a month ahead and wanted to shoot something special.
We couldn't miss the opportunity to explore the city even if it was just for a couple of hours. We loved the atmosphere in Galway and will definitely return to do some more sightseeing hopefully in the near feature.
Our initial plan was to shoot a glamorous 50's inspired editorial, but the weather the day before our trip was terrible, so we've decided to make some last minute changes and I think we've made a wise decision. Travelling in dresses would have been way more uncomfortable, bell bottom jeans were a perfect fit for a day on the road. 
I am an absolute 70's style worshiper! Just can't get enough of the cool laid back style that's oh so chic for a day and I adore the 'disco fever' glittery dresses for the nights out. The 'forgotten decade' as referred to by the fashion insiders has been revived by a number of designers in their latest collections. 70's are becoming a huge trend again and are here to stay.
If I had to choose one item that reminds me of this decade the most, it must be the FLARES! An absolute must have for the coming seasons. 
I wore mine with a simple black rollneck and faux fur jacket. To maximize the retro feel I chose to wear a burgundy floppy hat and to complete my look and add some sparkle I wore these one of a kind vintage jewelry pieces. Tassle necklace I trifted in New York and an antique brooch I bought at a flea market in Dublin. 
Agata (wore flares by River Island) took the 70's in to the more sophisticated side and made it her own. Flares paired with a simple white shirt and a statement cardigan could take her from an office to a dinner date. I have to tell you a bit more about her cardi, because I am so jealous of it! It's Ralph Lauren, pure cashmere with stunning embellishments and she found it...wait for this..in a charity shop for a tenner! I think I might have to steal it from her ;-) She finished off her look with this so on trend sparkly ear-cuff and dainty stackable rings.

 We hope you fall in love with the 70's style like we did and you can keep in touch with us via FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM or TWITTER @STYLEGAMBLERS

Love, peace and stay style gambling,

Your dancing queens,

Veronika and Agata
