Panic(king) At the Disco

At the auction a few months back, we were part of a large group of friends who bid aggressively on a "Saturday Night Fever" party. We won it, and now the glittery event is fast approaching. The female half of the group has organized a shopping trip to some vintage stores, but due to severe scheduling conflicts here at Nesting Ground, I am unable to go.

That's why they invented online shopping.

I apologize for not being able to post pictures. I didn't realize they would disappear immediately from the site once my sale went through. But fear not! For the descriptions alone will conjure the requisite images. Imagine if you will, your Nesting Ground hostess darkening your doorstep while wearing an authentic 70s...

Violet sheeny dacron lightweight polyester double knit long sleeve solid disco shirt with tapered body and extra long collar points

Along with...

A polyester double knit skirt, with a shaped waist and moderate A line cut. The white background has a diagonal textured pattern, with a silver hi lite thread

And tied at her neck a...

Vera womens scarf in greek key print silk. Purple, white and yellow with signature lady bug

And clipped to her tender earlobes...

Shiny, silver-tone earrings, having an interlocking, looped twist

Is your skin reacting negatively to the polyester content? Well, hold onto your bellbottoms because the spousal unit will be sporting...

A sheer polyester broadcloth long sleeve print disco shirt with tapered body in white, yellows, oranges, golds, blues, dark greens, wonderful fantasy print with couple on flying carpet passing a castle, lake and trees with clouds on back and woman aproaching the carpet on the front - wow!

"Wow" is right. And to complete his look...

Levis navy blue polyester denim 4-pocket flat-front jeans-style 517 flare pants

I cannot tell you how hard I was laughing when I clicked the "purchase" button on the "flying carpet" disco shirt. But getting back to me (all Nesting Ground roads return to me, in case you didn't notice)...if it's not 100% clear from the descriptions, I'm personally attempting a sort of Bianca Jagger meets Carol Brady vibe. Hair? Dramatically feathered, of course. And I'm considering going to Sephora that afternoon to have false eyelashes applied. So, I guess it would actually be...Bianca Jagger meets Carol Brady meets Farrah Fawcett meets Diana Ross in the "Mahogany" photo shoot scene.

do you know where you're going to?
do you like the things that life is showing you?
do you know?

*sings full throat with eyes closed, chin lifted*

...once we were standing still in time
chasing the fantasies that filled our minds
you knew how I loved you
but my spirit was free
laughing at the questions that you once asked of me...


*spins around in metallic caftan and then collapses into a heap on the floor, gently weeping while mascara runs down cheeks*

Oh, and Shuboy? Don't tempt me...

You know, polyester was one of those materials that served its purpose at the time. It doesn't wrinkle and can sometimes pass for silk.

Oooh, gura, I like your new picture!

I wonder if we will be called upon to do the hustle?

You know what I discovered about polyester today? It's hot. Literally, not figuratively...
