That Seventies thang!

I don't mind admitting it, I am a child of the 70's. Yes, I was born amidst a sea of flares, bright colours, hallucinating prints and dare I say it... rather large lapels!!!

I love the nostalgia and the sense of freedom of the 70's. After the rigidness of the 50's, the 60's, the 70's brought hope, individuality and independence to the way we dressed and accessorised. Who could forget Woodstock in 1970, space hopper races in the garden and the birth of Disco. Ok, we can't gloss over the depressing politics and economics of this time, but for a kid, the 70s was a pretty cool decade to grow up in!

This is why I love a retro print and traditional inspired clothing. Whether Seventies inspired or from any era, I love the way we keep regenerating past fashions into something new but with that little sense of wistfulness and sentimentality.

Here at Little Flea we've been really enjoying some of the retro inspired and evocative prints and silhouettes brought to us by some of our amazing brands. Take a peek and some of these beauties, inspired by a whole host of different eras mixed with a touch of the now perfect for modern day.
