{ love the look } '70s Summer


I'm yearning for summer in the '70s this year with ankle-grazing maxi dresses, including my mom's disco dress and the Modcloth stunner above. With a bold cuff and wood heels, a retro revival is on the horizon.

  11. I love this style, but unfortunaly, always feel that being short and not having much in a cleavage department, doesn't give me a chance to wear dresses like this. Oh, well... x
