Ever been to a 70's Party

Have you ever been to a 70's party?
Well, I've been to a few, and they are hilarious, lol!!! A couple weeks ago, my co-worker decided to plan one for her husband, who was turning 50, so my husband and I decided to go!  (seriously, I really didn't think he would dress up, ha-ha). There are shops all around town, that cater to vintage and 70'  themed parties, so we decided to rent our "get-ups" from a place called "Color Explosion". The visit to the store is so nostalgic, the clothing is a mixture of disco and seventies. There, you can rent the entire outfit which includes, wig, shoes, cane, cape (lol) and accessories! Now, originally I was given a blonde fro, but it was Florida Evans size, ("Good Times") and  I wasn't feeling baby fro, so I called up Mom!


                              Me: Mama, they gave me a baby afro,
                           Mom: They gave you what?
                              Me:  Florida Evans size, I think it's too little.....  Mama, do u happen to
                                      have any  afro wigs laying round somewhere?
                           Mom:  lol, What color you need baby?
                              Me:  (screaming) Dat's my mama!!!


(That's me fist in the air, lol)

My dh is pretty easy going, so I knew he would come, but I felt there was no way he would participate by dressing according to theme. Boy, did he surprise me not only did he dress-up accordingly, lol, he even wore a wig and gold boots to match mine, lmao!!


There was actually a dress that matched my dh's outfit, but someone else rented it that night!

There were disco balls, soul train lines and scramble boards, lol. We had a blast. A few had their decades confused, but it still was all good, lol. I always wanted to be on Soul Train.......






I kno it's pic heavy, and off topic, but we had a ball!  Thought I'd share.
See-ya!
