Who Said Disco Was Dead?


I hope you're both well!  I feel like we haven't spoken in ages and I have fun tales from the weekend to share!  On Saturday, I was invited to a Studio 54-themed goodbye party for one of the editors.  I had never really given the 70s and the legendary disco much thought, but it just kept coming up in conversation last week! A few days ago, I spoke to a friend in Toronto who is interning at FASHION Magazine.  The lucky little bugger got to attend the Halston Heritage launch hosted by Sarah Jessica Parker! Anyway, my sweet friend C and I started talking about all the crazy characters (including the Halstonettes!) who frequented Studio 54 and how amazing it would have been to see them all decked out in Halston living the high life!  I can't even imagine what it must have been like, but all the talk of Halston and Studio 54 gave me a Saturday Night Fever... 

As you can imagine, I was actually quite amazed that the interns were invited to the party.  It was a huge deal after all!  And I wasn't the only one who was shocked: Victoire almost choked on her Chardonnay when she saw me walk into the room.  She was also totally unimpressed jealous of my best Halstonette-inspired outfit, perfectly fitting for the amazing party!  My platforms were a mile high, I had false lashes out to here and of course, like any good disco diva, I wore a fabulous halter jumpsuit!  Diana Ross, Bianca Jagger and Anjelica Huston would be proud! 

Girls, let me tell you, the party was divine!  There was a massive dance floor, a spinning disco ball and the booze flowed like it would have back in the Studio 54 heyday!  It was extravagant and decadent, a perfect recreation of the glitz and glamour of the 1970s.  We danced the night away until I (once again) overdosed on champagne.  I guess this dancing queen is a little out of practice!  Anyway, when I left the party was still raging and that sullen Victoire was brooding in a corner. Even in a different decade she's a dud!  Regardless, I had a fabulous night socializing with my (completely drunk) colleagues and if they remember their intoxicated praise and promises, I could be looking at Eternal Employment...

  1. I can't imagine how much fun that time would have been. I was definitely born in the wrong decade.
