I love this moody, 1970s-inspired shoot for Biba, modelled by none other than Daisy Lowe. She’s really getting around lately, isn’t she?!

Is the 1970s your bag, or will you be avoiding it? I’m a huge fan of flares but I can’t quite seem to make them work for me and I wonder if the 1970s are kind of the preserve of the Darryl Hannahs among us – you know, tall, leggy, with beachy blonde hair.

I am, however, loving the sheer, floaty fabrics going on in Penneys at the moment – not to mention their amazing caramel suede-alike laser cutout T-shirt that I picked up yesterday for the bargain price of €11. I had to do some serious pulling back when it came to the till time, and I even put back a gorgeous Peter Pan collar dress, not entirely dissimilar to this. Sigh. (Now that I look at that Topshop dress again, it was almost entirely the same, and I may have to go back and get it.)
