SUMMER OF 1979

This weekend I was thrown back to a retro revival on wheels, where I had the pleasure of being co-pilot in a newly refurbished Mercedes 450 SLC classic from 1979.





I’m sporting the very recognizable Prada shades (yawn) doesn’t everyone have these now? Note to self:  add new shades to the Christmas list.  Regardless, big glasses are an absolute necessity for a car of this era so you can dawn your Natalie Wood look as best as possible. Keeping it light, simple (and sweat free) I wore a day dress from Koton, which was black lace cutout, layered over a nylon slip. 


To accessorise, I opted for a black and gold theme with this pair of gold spiked sandals from Steve Madden and a Bayswater mini tote to hold my lippy. We went for shisha, which lead onto drinks, which lead onto dinner in the beautiful Palace Hotel. Now the weather is so much cooler it was a very tranquil and relaxing place to waste away the afternoon.
