We are going to a birthday party tonight where the theme is to dress like your favorite 70s icon. Neither of us had time to deal with a costume, so I’m cheating with a DvF wrap and the husband is going corduroy suit with a turtleneck—sort of a 70s Updike vibe (and yes, he has the stuff in his closet, which is another conversation). Of course we both wanted to go as John McEnroe. I imagine the everyone there will be dressed as McEnroe! But if you had to pick a 70s costume that wasn’t the Bee Gees, what would yours be?

Update 2/22/09: There was a Chris Evert but no McEnroe – what??? But the winner was my friend Mia, who went this direction:

  1. Does Wonder Woman count?

    • Totally! And there was a Wonder Woman there. I should add that she looked INCREDIBLE and I wanted to kill her. If I looked like in a Wonder Woman costume, I’d wear it to work.
