(Blouse: Here, Skirt: Here, Shoes: Here)

It's no secret that I'm a big fan of the sixties and seventies in the ol' sartorial department. Whether it's some 'fashion forward' flared bell bottoms, a Birkin basket bag, wide brimmed hat to rival that of any UFO or beachy waves to channel my inner Farah Fawcett- I'm all over anything that wouldn't have gone amiss several decades ago. Saying that, I'm a huge advocate of mixing the wonders of the old with the new- which is why (as you can imagine)- I'm pretty excited by the new Boden ICONS collection- a collection built of timeless limited edition Boden classics (that literally will. not. age) and some new favourites that haven't gone out of fashion since their first debut (I'm lookin' at you, Hyde Parka)- the pieces all exude completely luxurious quality, whilst being wearable at the same time- not bad, right?

So, when Boden asked five of my favourite friends (read: Lucy, Dunya, Carrie and Kristabel) and I to style up some of the ICONS, how could we say no? Taking serious nods from the 1960's, we whizzed to Carrie's pad (which, of course, was decked out in some ultimate sixties paraphernalia) for a little dressing up, swinging to some favourite tunes and swooning over the dapper new Michael Caine print on her wall. For an afternoon spent channeling my inner 'cool ABBA mom' (exactly what I asked for when getting my hair done)- I paired this incredible pussy bow blouse with this bad-ass button up skirt, for a look that would fit in as much in Ms. Chung's wardrobe as it would a certain Ms. Pallenberg's- good job Boden!



Post in collaboration with Boden, but all love of shiny things, the sixties, seventies and big hair- my own
