If you want to be a dancing queen – or king – you may want some of our1970's costume accessories. The decade was ushered in by hippies and ushered out by Disco, so we have a number of 70's accessories that fit the range of fashion styles for the decade. Men, women and children can wear flower power fashion or they can dress for the discotheque. Our accessories include hippie styles such as peace-symbol jewelry and hand bags. Disco items include jewelry, Go-Go boots and glitter eyelashes. We even have platform shoes and KISS makeup kits.
In 1974, President Richard Nixon resigned before he could face impeachment proceedings. He was the first and only U.S. president to do so. The economy was stagnant in most countries and the U.S. faced its first energy crisis and long lines at the gas pumps. Pocket calculators were sold for the first time and the Sony Walkman was invented. Southern rock, folk, soft and progressive rock were all in vogue, but the decade is perhaps best known for its disco music and outlandish clothes.
Television westerns mostly died out during the seventies and were replaced by jiggle television. These shows, including Three's Company and Charlie's Angels, had scantily clad women and bawdy humor. The decade also advanced the portrayal of minorities on TV with a record number of shows with main characters of color, including Good Times, the Jeffersons, What's Happening and Sanford and Son.
