FashionJulie’s Picks: How to Ace the 70′s Songbird Look

We partnered up with Julie from Orchid Grey to create a 4 part series of outfits inspired by Julie’s favorite 1970′s musicians.  If you read her blog then you know, Julie is always blogging about music and she has a super classic taste. After creating such inspiring looks based on various ’70s sirens such as Carly Simon, Stevie Nicks, Debbie Harry and more, we wanted to get Julie’s picks for how to achieve each look.
Take a look below for her pics on how to create the 1970′s songbird style yourself!

FashionBlogger Spotlight: Julie of Orchid Grey

Happy Wednesday! Time again for my favorite post of the week, Blogger Spotlight! This week I had to give some special attention to Julie from Orchid Grey. I have been a long time reader of Julie’s blog and she has kept me and her many, many readers inspired with daily outfit posts comprised of both vintage and new items. What originally got me into her blog was her tagline, “Big hair, small wallet.” As a girl with hair so big things get lost within it, Julie had me from the very beginning! This month, we were lucky enough to partner up with Julie for an amazing contest with a $100 shopping spree to LuLu*s. See the end of this post for details!

Check out some of my favorite Orchid Grey looks below! 

This lady-like dress is perfectly paired with a cardigan and strappy sandals. A clear 1960′s umbrella finishes the look with a touch of playfulness.

Obsessed with these 70′s platforms. Julie, you know who to call if you want to pass those beauties on!

I love the look of the patterned skirt with the chocolate brown tights. Great color combinations!

Staying on trend in a midi skirt, Julie adds her own special touch by choosing a vintage floral pattern.

Looking perfect in a LuLu*s maxi, Julie adds strappy buckled platforms for a polished look. 

I love the bright pop of orange handbag paired with the deep blue patterened skirt. 

Julie has a real eye for color combinations and patterns, and to top it off, her writing is funny and super engaging! One of the many bloggers I hope to meet in person one day, you feel like you have a friend in her just by being a reader! Make sure to hop on over to Orchid Grey to get some inspiration and to say “Hello!”
