Get the Look: 70s Disco Fashion

k150_23SZDheel iconOur partying ‘70s throw-back guest blogger Disco K. is the subject of this week’s Get the Look with her authentic ‘70s fashions of disco clubbin’ evening wear. While she’s no stranger to partying until the sun comes up and wearing her nighttime outfit during the day, we highly recommend it for a night of dancing.

The look has recently been rediscovered after being featured in the film, “American Hustle.” To get the look, check vintage stores and eBay for items from the 1970s. Dresses should be slinky and body-hugging with halter top or spaghetti strap detailing or the classic wrap-dress silhouette. Jewelry consists of long, drop charm necklaces, dangle hoop earrings and metal bangles. Throw on a fur stole, some platform heels, and a clutch to carry your compact, cigarettes and enough cash for a cocktail and cab ride home.







Disco K’s look was inspired by the personal style of Jerry Hall and Farrah Fawcett at Studio 54 and put together entirely from vintage items. Check out her eBay HAUL video! Find your own ‘70s treasures on eBay using the links below*:

FIDM Exhibit of Film Costume Design: Disco K. Reports

k150_23SZDheel iconIf you’re anything like me, you fall in love with the costumes in many of the films you see. Heck, I often go see movies, especially period films, just to see the clothes! The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandise (FIDM) offers an annual exhibit of the costumes of some of the biggest films of the year so movie and fashion buffs can see them up close.

This year’s exhibit features the wardrobe from “Man of Steel”, “The Great Gatsby” (loved!), “Saving Mr. Banks” “Anna Karenina” and many more. The exhibit is an eye-ful of gorgeousness and if you want to get an idea of the sizes of some of the actors, know that none of the costumes were altered in any way. Instead, each mannequin was cut to fit the clothes. I especially enjoyed the paper hairdo’s that went along with them!


“American Hustle” costumes by designer Michael Wilkinson

We sent Disco K. to check out the clothes from “American Hustle” (though we did worry she’d try to take some of them home!) The clothing is a picture-perfect example of the sexy fashions of the ‘70s disco era – slinky dresses, wrap dresses, long necklaces,  men’s velvet suits and ascots. Here’s her report:

And here’s a sampling of some of the exhibit:

Hooray for Hollywood,
