I Dressed Like It Was 1977

  • Published on Nov 19, 2017
  • I styled 3 outfits inspired by the popular fashions of forty years ago! From the polyester pantsuit and ascot-wearing wonder women, to leather-clad punk music fans and disco dancing queens in jumpsuits and metallic accessories, I had a great time pretending it was 1977 and exploring fashion history through one of the most iconic decades - the 70s. Let me know what you think of my ~lookbook~ and if you want to see more of these!
    A huge thanks to Kayley Melissa for rocking out this 70s hair! You can check out her channel here: thexvid.com/channel/UCctjAAIUSW3DRS-5Phh_hgQ

    Am I the only one who thinks that they should have just let her wear the first outfit for escape the night? I mean she's already got it, and plus I think it looks more like an investigative reporter (like she said) then the actual outfit they gave her

    Tryuly a shocker. I wore many of those 70s outfits. Not the punk stuff but otherwise I had many of those clothes. Look up the dance called the bump. We did it everywhere

    1.The body jumpsuit for disco should have been longer to the floor.
    2.the punk skirt should have been shorter
    3. Your fishnets should have had holes
    4.Ascot was mostly ref to MENS neck scarfs not womens. (BTW a scarf is a staple any era.)
    5.your eyebrows were way too thick. You should have had a drag queen cover them up and do thinner ones or CGI them!!!!
    6.your BF should be in front of camera more...he is funny less scripted.
    7.your blue makeup was flat. More glitter and gloss girl. I should have done your makeup. That makeup artist sucked.
    8.you should do a show and dress in drag...both of you!!!

    I'm late but I think Safiya looks very pretty in bangs. Like she is very beautiful without them but they just add a bit of a younger look and idk she just looks pretty.

    You kind of look like yourself from Escape the night. You just need more of a..*stripey Brown.* And you probably have to straighten your hair but other than that I love these outfits so much. How do you have all the confidence to walk down the street!? I would die and go back in and watch TheXvid and eat popcorn..
