Hiya Blogland!! Every got their polyester on??? We’ll be visiting the 70’s again today!!
The movie poster above is from the 1993 move “Dazed and Confused” which followed a group of teenagers on the last day of school in 1976. The kids in this movie were the same age (junior becoming senior) as I was on that day so this brings back LOTS of memories!
First off- they NAILED the clothing, the sets, the music of that era dead-on. I understand that a great deal of the wardrobe was deadstock. I could relate to driving around with nothing to do. and of course-the pivotal field party was something I was VERY familiar with!
The cast was pretty much unknowns at the time-it feature a very young Matthew McCoughnahey and Ben Affleck. I love this movie–if you were a teenager in the 70’s you will totally get it!! Here’s some more pix from the movie:
I’m going to share some images of the clothes we wore. I’m using catalogs from the era as most of us shopped for our stylish threads in such hip places as Sears, Wards, and Penneys-especially if you lived in Podunk Nowhere!!
On to the outfits! I wore something easy and cool Wednesday as it was hot, sticky and miserable!!
Thursday I decided to join up with Spy Girl for the 52 Pick-me-up Challenge. This week its complementary colors. I chose a variation of one of my favorites-red and green. I tweaked it a bit and wore olive and burgundy. Pardon the flip-flops but I’ve been having some crappy muscle contractions in my feet the past couple of days and these didn’t hurt.
I’m trying to be creative with our meals. Tonite’s menu was very tropical!! The hubster really enjoyed it.
Here’s are little Diva-ette!! My daughter is visiting Saturday with our grand-Chihuahua Noelle who’s not quite 2 years old! There is sure to be loads of doggie fun at our house! We plan on taking the girl’s for a walk on the towpath. MrBill can use that time to recuperate!! I’ve been making bandanas for them (matching ones no less-LOL)
Everyone have a fabulous weekend!! I’ll be back on Sunday with more 70’s awesomeness!!
