From circa mid 70s in the 'girls book of the 1970s'

What's your favourite outfit ?
Tina, London SE13
'My brand new silver paper boiler suit. It's really the nicest thing I have ever bought. My friends all think I look like an astronaut in it, but it doesn't put me off wearing it!' (70s Ed I bet you looked a complete wassock and your mates just laughed their socks off.... did they call the Fashion Police??'

Jeanette, London SE18
I've seen in a catalogue a three piece rust coloured suit. Consisting of trousers, jacket and a waistcoat. I don't have the money but I'm hoping my mum will lend me the money so that I can buy it ' (70s Ed ... MUM! don't do it!!)

Sharon, Montrose, Scotland

'I like the peasanty look and my favourite outfit is fairly unusual. I wear a fantastic black apron with tiny pink roses on it, (which my mother used to wear for working in the kitchen) , with a black peasant blouse and near ankle length
skirt, a blanket shawl and lovely flat tan crepe soled shoes. Not many people dress like this where I live, so they think I am absolutely mad' (70s Ed... now I am all for being yourself but really ... did you think you looked cool??)

Rosemary, Essex
A very flimsy looking party dress which I made from enormous patterned, square sarves. I bought the scarves from a jumble sale for just 40p. I think it is much nicer than anything in the shops and it is original too!' (70s Ed... an original Essex girl, I wonder if she wore white stilettos too?)

Christine, Kew, Surrey
'It's a flimsy Victorian camisole night- dress with pin tucks and lace on the front. It is much to pretty to just wear in bed, so I embroidered it and now makes a pretty shift dress. ' (70s Ed ... wtg Chris!!)

what a hoot of a post 70's .....the more I think about it the more I'm convinced that the fashion of back then have NO redeeming qualities what so ever.....and I'm fine thanks (your inquiry on DP's blog)..just a tad busy and lost La Laptop in a wine throwing throwing, she catching...all over her keypad...all well now and yes one of these day's I will get blog up and running....

Hi there BT~ & WB.
Redeeming fashion qualities.... maybe wedged shoe, I so loved being taller and they were so comfortable

Yes computers and wine are a tricky combo. My mouse & keyboard have fell foul of uncontrollable wine a couple of times.... you have to watch those cheeky little numbers :-)
