Welcome Dear Readers! Say, have you ever speculated what people would have worn to the office if they would have had casual Friday back in the 1970’s?
I’m going out on a limb here, Dear Readers, and guess that the answer is no. Well, it’s high time we speculated then, don’t you think? Let’s get started.
She’s Got Slightly-Creepy 70’s Spunk!
She’s got style! She’s got vision! She’s got more 70’s spunk than a barrel of Mary Tyler Moores!
This casual-Friday, slightly-creepy 70’s outfit really puts the sass in sassafras and proclaims to the world, “I’m beautiful, I’m optimistic and I’m wearing a yellow hat!
Even Lou Grant could see that she has “taking a nothing day and suddenly making it all seem worthwhile” written all over her!
Tie Dye For!
Here’s a slightly-creepy seventies couple who obviously ride the bicycle they share to the beat of a different drummer!
You won’t find them jumping through their 1970’s boss’s demands! Their casual-Friday, slightly-creepy 70’s outfits say,” What? You got a problem with our 1970’s counter-culture casual attire? Screw you boss man! We’ll jump on the Schwinn that we share and ride, ride, ride! Away from the demands of “society” and its stupid “rules!” And, rest assured, Boss Man, the very second we learn to ride the bike that we share without trainings wheels? . . . Well it’s gonna be Sayonara Suckers!”
Most Popular 70’s Casual-Friday Attire for the CIA
Daring to wear an outfit like this in today’s office setting might cause a few double takes, but back the slightly-creepy 70’s, this outfit would have been considered just plain boring!
Nobody but nobody would have given the person wearing such an outfit a second glance.
The CIA knew that if one wanted to be inconspicuous against the back drop of the slightly-creepy 70’s office decor, this outfit fit the bill like none other! Which is why on any given day back in the slightly-creepy 70’s, anybody wearing an outfit like this was more than likely a CIA agent.
Driven to Slightly-Creepy 70’s Casual-Friday Distraction!
Here’s a slightly-creepy 70’s, casual-Friday outfit that drove everyone in the 70’s office wild! So much so that she was asked to go outside and lean up against a slightly-creepy 70’s tree.
Today, you would find workers out there with her smoking cigarettes, but back in the slightly-creepy 70’s, everyone just smoked at their desks happily puffing and blowing smoke down the hall, around the corner and up the nostrils of their slightly-creepy 70’s boss.
The only people who were ever asked to “take it outside” were the slightly-creepy 70’s fashionistas who went for broke, fashion-wise on slightly-creepy 70’s casual Friday.
And, of course, we can’t help but love them all for it!
And there you have it, Dear Readers! I hoped this answered your questions about . . . uh . . . well whatever the question was, I hope this answered it!
Until next time . . . I love you

The Empress(not Queen) of romanticism strikes again. Hooded Girl is worth a trip down memory lane any day. You still have that outfit, don’t you!!
Empress! I like the sounds of that!!
And I do still have that outfit, Borgia! How did you guess? I macromaed it myself back in slightly-creepy 1972! I use it as a slightly-creepy hanging plant holder Saturday through Thursday nite, then I take it down and wear it for casual Friday and eat Empress Shrimp. I don’t think I have to tell you what my slightly-creepy favorite day of the week is! 😀
Those of us who thought the seventies were the ultimate swinging of times nowadays suffer the perennial torment of children looking at your wedding photos of the time and with curled lip asking the question ‘what were you thinking when you went out in that?’
Ah!! My kids do that a lot to me. It was my hair they can never get over. And looking back on it now, either can I! What were we all thinking? LOL!!
Again… not sure of the problem.
Uh . . . well . . .uh they do look nice on some people, such as yourself, I’m sure! . (Are you by any chance under cover for the CIA, undercover?)
No comment. 😉
Aha!! I suspected as much!!
I think the woman in the last photo might be Bat-girl.
You know!! I think you’re right! Good catch Idio!
That shawl is just too much. Oh yuck! When I scrolled back I realized she was barefoot! HA!
Ew! It doesn’t get any worse than that, even by slightly creepy 70’s standards, Erin!!
If Spunk girl is ever looking for her hat, I believe enquiries at Snoop Dogg’s place may prove fruitful.
You have the eagle eye of Jimmy Oslen, Seb.
At least fridays in teh 70s weren’t too casual.
I still remember short-shorts.
Because I haven’t figured out how to repress those memories.
Ahahahah! Who loves short shorts I love short shorts! I fear it isn’t repressed in my memory either. It’s part of our DNA now I fear, Guap.
