Not too long ago I turned, well older and went all out with a “disco” themed party. Deciding what to wear was hard until I saw it…the purple polyester jumpsuit straight out of (I like to believe) Studio 54! I bought it used from FireflyVintage on Etsy for $55.00. But, since every seller on Etsy has their own private shops, you can contact them through Etsy and simply ask if they have any sales running or if they can do better with shipping. It is always worth asking since 9 times out of 10 I do get a discount.
I just happened to have my mother in laws 1960′s round shades that have 5 other lenses! I felt the suit needed a belt to break it up, so I found the perfect gold link belt at a local antique shop for $5.00. Since this suit has such a deep neck, it had to have a chunky necklace, which I found on Etsy at GloriasJewelryBox for $20.00. This owl has the perfect 70′s feel and picks up the aqua from the jumpsuit. I already owned the gold wedges which are from Cole Haan. If you look closely I have a pack of Basic smokes tucked into my top (hey why not- that is what they did in the 70′s). My gold purse was purchased from a local thrift store for $5.00. I picked up my bracelet for $200 from a local thrift shop.
I dolled up my face with plenty of rouge, lip gloss and fake eyelashes. My hairdresser Amanda from, Salon Sabeha in Portsmouth gave me my perfect 1970′s glam do.
Never underestimate a perfect outfit for an important occasion. I felt as good as I looked and had the time of my life. Remember to have a couple of tricks…. like this wig I came out in near the end of the night! Live it up and go all the way with the right ‘outfit’!
