When that brief moment of pause hits as you’re about to push the “order” button on that sequined, sleeveless black jumpsuit, and you think to yourself, “Really, will I ever have a reason to wear this crazy contraption?!” — IGNORE IT.
You just never know when you’ll get the urge to look like Blanche Marie Elizabeth Hollingsworth Devereaux. Or when you’ll need something to wear with your last-minute Disco Queen Halloween costume.
Have I ever mentioned how much I love disco? Yes, my fellow Dancing Queen, I like to Let It Whip to Brick House!! You could’ve done The Hustle to half the songs played at my wedding, fo’ reals!
So when I found this plastic “Disco” necklace at Party City last week (just a few feet from the Sexy Clown costume), it beckoned me to bring it home.
#catlady moment: I kindasorta wish I had a kitty-size one to put on Tabs, so we could match. Oh, wait…
Turns out that piecing together a last-minute Disco Queen costume is easier than accidentally falling out of your platform shoes while you’re dancing at Studio 54.
I already had the outfit, but if you don’t keep a full-body black sequin jumpsuit around for those “just in case moments” (LOL!), you could always explore a thrift store tomorrow (or your mom’s closet, if she’s a pack rat like mine) for ’70s-inspired gear. Then just straighten your hair if it’s curly, slip on some gold jewelry, load up on the shimmery eye makeup, and slick your lips with a shiny red or plum.
Assuming you’re more coordinated than I am (note: I’m a klutz), a pair of roller skates would take things to the next level. Or maybe carry around a disco ball, and bring the party with you!
