If I absolutely had to pick a decade of fashion to wear forever and I couldn't chose the fictional decade of 70's sci-fi movies (all that silver pleather), it would have to be the '60s. All those cute little shift dresses, mini skirts and cute collars, yes please! I couldn't stand all the hippy boho rubbish of the 70s; the constricting waists of the 50s (no room for massive cake wedges); or the leg warmers of the 80s, my legs are warm enough thank you.
So it is probably a surprise that I don't own many shift dresses - out of the 30+ dresses I have in my wardrobe, less than 5 are shift dresses. The problem is my butt - I have a really small frame, but have the ass of a J-Lo. It often doesn't fit in trousers, lots of jumpsuits are a no-no and shift dresses can be a problem. The cute litle shift looks a dream on the top half, but if I can wrestle it over my hips, it is so tight that a slight bend over can lead to critical seam rippage.
So this Primark shift dress I found brand new in a charity shop for the bargain price of £5 pound is a firm wardrobe favourite, because it goes over bum whilst still being able to walk. It was a little bit chilly on the day, so I popped my trusty H&M shirt on underneath and some fairly thick tights to keep the chill at bay.
What decade of fashion would you wear forever?
Oh and something for the anime fans, if you haven't already done so watch a film called Harlock: Space Pirate. Yes the title is lame, but the animation is the best I have ever seen.
