What To Wear When You Realise The Party Is 70s Fancy Dress At 6.45pm.

It's amazing what one finds in one's wardrobe.

Although, to be fair, they weren't actually in my wardrobe, more in my dressing up bag...

That shirt has an interesting story though. My dad bought it for my Mum in China. Yes....I know. She was going to send it to the Op Shop but I rescued it for my collection. I mean, it's just too deliciously awful to throw out! Her comment at the time was "What in the world made you think I would EVER wear a shirt like that!" Dad looked mournful, "And I made the lady in the shop climb up a ladder to get it because it was the last one left on a model right up on the top shelf!"

One does wonder what was going through his mind at the time, however, I think I may have solved the problem. A careful look at the front placket will reveal three, what appear to be, soccer balls! And my Dad has always loved his football....... Happy Birthday Dad! I will always think of you when wearing this shirt :-D

Worryingly well I feel :-)
The wig is one of several. You never know when you'll need a dress up wig!
What? What do you mean you didn't realise it was a wig????

Seventies fancy dress never left my clset. Nor my person.

Great outfit! Looks like you nailed the theme. :) It is nice to have a dress up closet for those moments.

You are impossible to get through to! So I'm going to try a blast this morning, of all the means of communication that I have available to me, to see if I can blast through and make contact.

What are you doing on the Bank Holiday Monday????????

If this fails, I may have to resort to 20th century technology...

That shirt could actually work as part of the right outfit, though, in a self-deprecating, ironic way.
