burn baby burn......disco inferno!

An invitation arrived in the mail this week. It is printed on silver paper, and covered in glitter. The heading says - "Freak Out!"

One of our friends is celebrating her birthday in a big way, with a party involving a disco ball, floating dance floor and cocktails. Entry is by costume only. I have booked the babysitter and I'm champing at the bit until I can hit that dance floor. Bopping to groovy seventies music - why that sounds almost as good as leaping about to eighties music!

I do love a boogie.... even at my own wedding I spent the last two hours, when I probably should have been greeting elderly aunts, wiggling and jiggling with my friends and siblings. So this party is a great opportunity to dance without having to enter a nightclub, or frighten and embarrass my children. My one problem is this ..... seventies fashions are not very forgiving. I will need a costume that allows for thighs. Shiny lycra jumpsuits are NOT okay. HELLLLLLLLP!!!

Your feedback and suggestions are much appreciated!

How fun!!!! I was a child in the 70s so the thing that stuck in my head were these plaid bell bottoms and how I could never ride my bike without them getting caught in the chain.

In the seventies they wore very short mini skirts, hot pants, granny dresses, low riding bell bottom pants...and coulots(sp)they were my favorite, next to mini skirts.

I remember having to be really, really careful how I sat while wearing a mini skirt...after all you didn't want to reveal everything.

Jellyhead, wear bell bottom jeans with any shoes or boots with leather soles. (so you can do the electric slide) A cute top, but something light, cause once you are on the dance floor, you don't want to overheat! Drink lots of water the day of the dance! Do some dancing at home before the big date to warm up! Have fun, wish we were all going too!

That sounds like so much fun! You get on that dance floor and let your hair down.
Boogie woogie woogie!!

I did the samething on my wedding. I like when I go skating on adult nights, because they play some of those old disco music.
