I'm up at 3 in the morning watching Claudine from my favorite decade... The 70s!!! Everyone who knows me knows how much I LOVE the 70s.
Why I LOVE the 70s?
Fashion- The 70s is the era that has us on a fashion frenzy. Psychedelic patterns, bell bottoms, platforms, dashikis, and sooo much more.
Cars- Cars were built to last and were super spacious. I can not resist an 'ole school car.
Culture- It just seemed like everyone was doing their own thing or doing it together and getting along. Everyone had a good time with what they had, no matter how poor you were. Some of the coolest slang was birthed during this era... Jive Turkey, Sucka, and Groovy. Pimps... need I say more!!!
Music- You had Solid Gold Classics, Woodstock, and Disco... just music that made you feel good (baby making)!!!
Movies- The Mac, Claudine, Cooley High, Sugar Hill, Superfly, Dolemite... too many to name!!!
Goodtimes- You all should know this is my ish!!! I still long to be Thelma or at least shop in her closet. She was one poor fly chic. F.Y.I- Ester Rolle fought for there to be a live-in father included.
The Afro- Everyone had one... need I say more!!!
That's me looking all 70 ish, reminiscent of Thelma Evans LOL (excuse the boxes I just moved in). What is/was your favorite decade? Did I forget something from the era? I know, drugs... not into that though LOL (it existed in every decade).
