It’s only fitting that Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher had a baby this year—whether they know it or not, It symbolizes the rebirth of the 70’s. Maybe if That 70’s Show debuted this year, I could seek inspiration from Donna’s bell-bottoms or Jackie’s mini-skirts. I may have even had something nice to say about Fez’s paisley button downs. I guess I’ll have to settle for inspo through reruns.
When I think of the 70's I think of afro-haired teens getting high in a basement. I think of political, social, and economic change for women. Novelist Tom Wolfe defined the era as the "Me Decade." It's no wonder why we're dressing like they did in the 70's. When I think of year 2015 I think of it including all those aforementioned associations; hashtag #Good Vibez and all. I even see more Go Big or Go Home afro hair on the streets ( sans the gals in our community who will be straightening their hair by Steli’s till the end of time. We can thank our mom's yearbooks for scarring us rightfully so. ) We're even freeing the nipple for crying out loud! AND now more than ever people are defining themselves as hipsters-- the hippie spinoff. Now all we need is a disco music revival and possibly a Studio 54 inspired eventbrite SY 70's party and we've officially teleported.
I put together some key 70’s pieces for your viewing and purchasing pleasure :)
