The passing of Donna Summer last week made me a little nostalgic for the 70s. She was the Queen of Disco and I clearly and fondly remember singing along to her songs – on the radio! – in my bedroom.
(For those of you too young to be familiar with her body of work, “On the Radio” was one of her many hits.) (For those of you who are familiar – see what I did there?)
Hearing the news about her death made me Remember Yesterday and want to pull on my new flares and peasant top, throw on some platforms and dance like a Bad Girl.
So, the cool thing is, I have flares, a peasant top and platforms in my closet because the 70s made a fashion comeback last year and it’s still going strong. Maxi dresses and skirts, boho blouses, headbands – well, maybe just on Nicole Richie, platform shoes, seriously flared jeans or trousers…
A word of caution: if you wear head-to-toe retro you risk looking like a hot mess. But if you wear a retro piece with more modern pieces from your wardrobe you’ll be Hot Stuff. (Okay, I’ll stop.)
I’ve gotta go Work Hard for the Money now. Peace out.
