    Re: Why the 70's Fashion must not be replicated

    This may be the best thread. ever. I would give just about anything on earth for that toilet tank cover. Not to mention the argyle-style barrel chairs. The fantastic thing is that the pictures that people have posted could almost be right out of the catalog. I'm not sure that we could say the same today. Remarkable. Kitty is foxy.

    These are vaticanplum children circa 1980:



    Now, we're not even in the right decade here, but apparently the 70s fashion was sooo great that there were holdovers. What I really want to discuss here is the jumpsuit. That's a boy, in case that isn't clear. My main question here is and has always been: how is a baby supposed to move around in that thing? I can't imagine that the wide-leg approach makes for easy crawling and toddling. Secondly, a dump truck and plaid go together...how? Third -- a wide collar? Really? Because when I think baby one piece, I immediately think of Osh Kosh, onesies with snaps, and...dress collars.

    This was our kitchen set. Very space age. Our seat covers were avocado green.

    Ahhh..... avocado green. Even in the 60's that was my Mom's favorite color growing up. Every appliance in the house had to be that color. As well as the kitchen counter tops.

    My first kitchen was all bright green and yellow. With those 70s-style fruits and vegetables pictures hanging all along one wall -- 21 of them, three rows of seven each. I can still picture them exactly in my head. Man, I wish my family hadn't gotten rid of those.

    yellow is supposed to be the worst color for a room. It makes people anxious. Babies cry more in yellow bedrooms, people freak out in yellow kitchens. I learned this from my eighth grade science project, Colors and Their Effects on People. Maybe that's why everybody got so wacked out in the 80s, all the yellow that abounded in the 70s.

    I like yellow. Maybe that's why I'm so whack.

    Yellow is my favorite color too. But I have been scared off from painting a room that color.

    Earthen colors seem to be the decorative colors of choice anymore. I guess they are suppose to be more soothing. It's the choice of my wife when she decorated the home.

    Who knows - 20/30 years from now my kids will probably be making light of the styles of today. Of course you should see my daughter's room and closet. It's straight out of the 60's/70's with her beads hanging everywhere and "Love American Style" decor. And she loves tie dye T-shirts.

    Beanbag "chairs".

    I had a cat that mistook the styrofoam pellets in it for kitty litter. Nothing like sitting down in cat pee.

    I know better that to post any Roy pictures from that era. I was college age then so I didn't have any of the JC Penney catalog garb. More, it was post-'60's evolutionary weirdness. My mutton chops were quite spectacular. They got shaved off and I grew a fu manchu with lip beard. Then a Grizzly Adams style beard. I don't think I ever lacked for some kind of facial hair. My hair was long but I blow-dried it every day to give that body. Bell bottoms of every style, embroidered, patched, etc. Mickey Mouse work shirts. I think I had a pair of leather boots that laced up to the knee. And earth shoes.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Don't laugh. Everyone will be using furniture like that in the year 2000. I know because I have seen it in movies.

    They absolutely will be.

    I think fashions go through a period of ridicule about 20 years after they are popular, then spring up again about ten years later as being cool and fashionably retro.

    I remember my folks making fun of the thin neckties of the 50s and early 60s, only to find us wearing thin ties in the mid 80s. Then we made fun of sideburns, long flowing hair, bell-bottoms, and wide collars, but I've seen some of those things in recent years.

    My wife has been wanting one of those haircuts where it is very short in the back and then gets progressively longer in the front (like David Beckham's wife, the Spice Girl, wears). I cautioned her that 20 years from now people are going to look at that haircut, roll with laughter, and wonder what they were thinking.

    I believe that's called the Manchester Cut.

    Pants were crazier back then.

    Uggg, I belive I had a pair very similar to those. What's worse is that I think I had a matching jacket.
