I was reading the forums of the infamous Two Peas in a Bucket scrapbooking website and someone posted about a hilarious post from the blog 15 Minute Lunch. I went and read it and the gist of it is, this guy was installing an exhaust fan in his wife's grandfather's house and found a 1977 JC Penney catalog in the insulation. He shares some truly unbelievable examples of fashion and style from 1977. Here's just a taste for you:
And it's not like these pics are from Vogue or some high fashion magazine, this is from Penney's. Which would lead one to the logical conclusion that people actually purchased and wore this stuff.
Anyway, there's more pics and hilarious commentary to go with them, however, be warned there is foul language. (If the language bothers you, at least go and scroll through the pics, they're plenty funny on their own.) Check it out: 15 Minute Lunch
Edited to add: I kinda like those "barrel" chairs and table!
