YES, PLEASE. All of those items. I'm just waiting to pull out my trench. And my friend turned me on to obsessing over that Chloe. Great post!

always love the 1970's- a very chic decade, much maligned.

Christina, the Mercedes is a 280SL (check out the number plate for a cheat!).

Until recently, I used to zoom around in a 1970's 450 SLC which my clients adored...I felt quite the designer in it...wondering why I sold it actually??? (Who needs practical cars for school pickups...)

Adore the glamour and opulence of the 1970s, and this vignette collects the most elegant elements of it - beautiful!
