"Welcome to P Town"- A glance at 70's fashion

Tonight, I decided to stay in after a long day of retail refuge. The other day my grandma gave me a DVD which was odd because I'm usually taking her DVD's instead of having them handed to me. She tells me to watch this movie because it's REALLY good. So I look down and it's TALK TO ME, the one with Don Cheadle. "O I saw the very beginning of this movie but it got turned off on me" I said. Not really interested she says "ok watch it." So, that's what I decided to do tonight and I'm really glad I did. If you haven't seen it... GO GET IT NOW. It is definitely one of the best films based on a true story I've seen in a looooooong time. Nonetheless, it's about an ex-con or "miscreent" as you'll understand after you watch it who gets out of jail and makes it big as a d.j. in Washington D.C. I won't give too much but the movie inspired me tonight.

Realizing Fashion mixed with writing is what I need to be doing with my life I often think in fashion terms, so as the credits started to roll I thought how I could tie this great movie into a post for a style blog... I came to the conclusion that people love visuals so I went and found a few pictures to document the "threads" of the 70's. I know the power of a picture so I decided I'll let the readers come to their own conclusions of such threads. So with that being said... enjoy. RIGHT ON!
