Remembering the 70s

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.

  1. Heaven Knows, a person wearing too much retro will look like a cake in the rain. I Feel Love for my satin baseball jacket. Will I ever have the chance to wear it again?

    If I happen to be dancing in MacArthur Park while wearing my flared pants and I hear “Love to Love you Baby”, it will be the Last Dance I will do!
