It's almost like there are these periods where our relationship is smooth and steady, and then there are times when it's like standing on the edge of this gorgeous, wonderful waterfall and just letting yourself drop, knowing that there's a safe pool of water ready to catch you at bottom. You take the plunge and you're in wayyyy over your head, but oh man, it's exhilarating, it's breathtaking, it's just incredible and you feel better than you ever have before and the water is cool and refreshing and exactly what you needed.

Sam is my waterfall.

New feature!

Today I am inaugurating a new feature in my LJ:

Outrageous Fashion Finds

Every day or three I will show you all a different, hurl-inducing image of a fashion find from our glorious past, and encourage you all to critique it. Points will be awarded to anybody who states honestly that they OWNED any of these things.

Here is the first, courtesy of sonyalynn:

I love that Puerto Rican Disco shirt on model A, with his straw pimp hat with its epileptic feather, and those banana colored slacks. He gets extra points for the chest hair, but his pendant is too small for proper 70s chic.

I'm not sure what's happening with model B's shirt tails. He just looks lazy.

Model C wins a cookie for that ultra coordinated blue theme he has going there, and his Village People moustache, but he loses something for the white platform shoes.

Borderline symptom of the day: amusedamused

My first thought was, "Miami Vice in the 70s?" Heh.

I think the shirt tail thing is actually a tie at the waist thing.. see where it v's?

I think you're right.

EW you're right! EW!

"C" has a wider stance than the other two, making his pose slightly more dynamic, and adding to the "comic book crime-fighter" nuance of his outfit.

Points off for his shoes, though, I agree, which should be just a bit darker blue than the rest of his powder blue motif.

To me, none of it looks bad, just very specifically dated.

B is wearing a tie-at-the-waist shirt. Believe it or not.

Oh dear

You're actually going to burn these images onto people's retinas? Isn't that against the Geneva COnventions or something?

Man, but the '70s were an ugly, UGLY time. :-P

These should totally go over in ungly_crap. :DDDDDDDD

The pedant is perfectly 70's, Italian machismo: a 14k gold Italian horn. The flavah-savah porn star mustache is spot on, too.

I never, ever knew a single person who would be caught dead (save our sainted father in his *ahem* Puerto Rican Disco Shirt Collection) in clothes like these.

Lurve the shoes on the guy on the far right.

Got more?

I was about to say, what about Dad? :D He LOVED that crap. :D

He was kind of a fashion nightmare all by himself. Remember the Fruit Boots?

You mean the Disco Shirts, right? I don't Dad would've enjoyed yellow trousers, and he certainly didn't wear gold chains!

Actually, I think I'd like having Fruit Boots today. I liked the colours and the design, even though I do remember them embarrassing me to no end when I was a kid.

Looking back, they looked COZY, didn't they?

But God! Did he HAVE to wear them OUTSIDE OF THE HOUSE???
