It takes very little to create a 70s outfit: a maxi-dress by Manuela Pardu with a fancy print, a vintage belt and ultra-flat sandals. And for once I am with my hair tied back, I could not tame it!
A 70s outfit for an evening on Crete in the streets of Rethymno. A Manuela Pardu dress that you have already seen me wear here and that this time I have interpreted in a look more similar to 70s fashion.
It took just a few hours to transform an evening look into a 70s outfit: I added a vintage silver belt from my mother’s wardrobe and ultra-flat silver sandals.
It was the right look to tackle the 1.5 km walk to get to Rethymno, the coastal town on the north coast of Crete.
A delightful village in its old part that, who follows me on instagram, has already seen in the various stories and direct.
For those who had lost, the video of this 70’s outfit is on my IGTV.
When I decided to pack this maxidress I was afraid that it would crumble and since I can not iron (I do not even know how to cook but that’s another story) I was ready to use the hair dryer to remove creases instead…. surprise! When I opened the suitcase the dress was perfect, not even a wrinkle.
Contrary to everything else that I had to iron with the hair dryer.
To recreate the perfect 70s outfit, I was inspired by some photos of my mother and I then combined ultra-flat sandals with a belt that I remember being the protagonist of many looks of my mother in the 70s.
The hair, on the other hand, is a bit out of context, as in the 70s they went straight and with a line in between. I unfortunately have the Gorgon Medusa hair and then I had to pull them back.
The photos were shot at the Minos Hotel where we stayed the last 10 days and it turned out to be very pleasant and well kept!
