What We Love



1. Stevie Nicks

When I am in a thrift store, I often ask myself, "What would Stevie Nicks wear?" Her 1970s fashion is timeless, especially with the return of boho-chic for Spring 2011. Chiffon, velvet, crochet, and lace are some of her favorite materials. Even at 62, she still has an amazing sense of style, ultimately staying true to her witchy/ethereal roots. -Jenny-

2. Geode Jewelry

I collect geodes, particularly geode embellished jewelry. There is something about the rich colors, the uneven textures, and the unique shape of the rocks which make them a wonderful statement piece. A little over a year ago, I found an amazing geode rock belt from the 1970s. The 3 inch cross-section of the stone is set in leather with gold accent detailing. The originality of the accessory makes it one of my favorite possessions. More importantly, I think Stevie Nicks would be proud! -Jenny-

3. The Maxi Dress

I stand at a towering 5'3, so the maxi dress is something that I am a little uncertain about. However, I found an amazing 1970's floral print maxi this week while thrifting. With a pair of heels and a wide brimmed hat, I don't feel short one bit. Who says short girls can't wear long dresses? -Jenny-

4. Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacobs Spring line was easily identified as being inspired by Jodie Foster's character in Taxi Driver, among other things. But his 1970s influences were front and center. I'm talking about wide leg trousers, big hats, the hair, the sunglasses and don't forget about the platforms! -Annalise-

5. Jane Birkin
  Jane Birkin is more than such an inspiration to me, and to fashionable ladies all over the world. Her classic beauty and style captured the hearts of women everywhere. The Hermes Birkin Bag is an homage to this lovely dame. But maybe one of her best contributions to fashion has to be her daughter Lou Doillon, a style icon in her own right. -Annalise-

6. Rodarte Film with Elle Fanning


"Hollywood's latest darling, Elle Fanning, goes digging for buried treasure in Todd Cole's new collaboration with Rodarte, The Curve of Forgotten. The film highlights design duo Kate and Laura Mulleavy's spring 2011 collection, which drew inspiration from 1970s northern California, referencing Redwood forests, the gold rush and Asian influences. The Somewhere star pirouettes through the empty rooms of the historic Baldwin House (which sits on an oil field in LA's Baldwin Hills), her outfits magically changing from one room to the next. Shot on a RED camera using Cooke lenses from the 70s, the short's dusty focus references seminal movies of that era, such as Terrence Malick's Badlands, while Georgia-based indie rockers Deerhunter provide the dreamy soundtrack. As for the title, Cole explains: 'It's the title of a Richard Brautigan poem. The poem and the film are about forgotten things—circles and the curve of time.' The film follows on from last spring's intergalactic project that Cole shot with Rodarte and comes at an extraordinary moment for the designers, whose dazzling costume contributions to Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan will form part of their upcoming solo exhibit at MoCA" - on YouTube. -Annalise-
