would you feel alright wearing this? for £20 odd quid thought it a bit of a bargain.

or this?

One hair option would be Afro wig (wear with shades).

Oh fun! be brave its fancy dress so I think you can be a bit crazy with the clothes without people actually thinking you are crazy! I'd be going in the following disco queen wannabe outfit, and would see if I can trackdown a hair crimpler,:
footless tights
glittery heels

You have been great help. I am not telling anyone about this!!! It will be a stormer!!! I am so exited now!!! Thank furball. You have made me laugh and made my day!!!

actually i really like that top and it would probably look really good with 'smart' jeans and heels for future wear! hope those trousers never come back though.......

Don't forget your platform shoes/boots.

I have got the perfect platform shoes to go with! Just need the enormous sun glasses!!! sny suggestions for something cheap? Has to be 70's!!! I am so exited... even went for the afro wig... I have normally long straight brown hair... so it will be a chock!!! And Yes I like the top as well!
