Its Blog Tag Wednesday at the eVintage Society!. Fans of the 70s, rejoice!! Last week CBS premiered a new series called SWING TOWN. Set in 1976, the show features 3 couples and their families…..a childless couple with loads of money, toys and an open marriage….a young couple with a teenage boy trying to define their relationship….and a more conservative couple facing a changing world. It also features some fab 70s clothes and music! Lets talk 70s!
1) Show us your favorite 70s piece in your inventory, mens, womens, dress, lingerie…..whatever you LOVE!
When I was a kid, I was in the 'Disco Sucks' crowd. Now I have a better appreciation of the music, but not so much with the clothing. When I think of Disco, I think of desperate people trying to get into Studio 54, bra-less girls in halter tops, men in platform shoes and polyester pants, blue eyeshadow, cocaine, Liza Minelli, Bianca Jagger etc.
3) What was your favorite look of the 70s? The maxi dress? Bell bottoms? Culottes? Do tell.
Well, I was wearing culottes in the 1970s, but only because I was about 10, and didn't know any better. My aunt had a ton of super tight pants with bell bottoms. She had to put them on when they were still damp and lay on the bed and use a hook to pull up the zipper. She also had a great collection of super high platforms - Mary Janes and a pair of really cool carved wooden ones still stand out in my mind. She drove a Camaro too. I thought she was very cool. If I were an adult in the 70s, I'd probably be wearing gauzey, clingy jersey dresses, with a scarf ties around my head and big sunglasses.
4) Your neighbors invite you to a wild party where there may be disco music. Do you go?
No idea who he is. Was he the guy who played Miles on Murphy Brown?
5) Grant Show. Sexy then? Sexy now? No idea?
6) Romantic Gunne Sax Prairie/Renn Queen or Disco Diva? Whats your style?
Choose or die? I guess I would go with the Romantic look because disco is a little too skin-flashy polyester-sweaty for me.
