If you Bitches could travel back in time to 1976, what would YOU purchase off the racks to wear?

  1. An American flag inspired Speedo and a bottle of SPF 500 for my delicate translucent skin instead of using baby oil. No wonder I look 51.

    1. Looking 51 is great if you are sixty. Not so great if you are 40.

  19. I was a mere babe in arms in 1976. Schwarzwalderkirchetorte, fondue sets and Carmen rollers were all the rage.

  20. Seems that Canada doesn't want to have anything to do with Carmen rollers. That's what I got after clicking your link dear Mitzi:

    "Unfortunately, access to this particular item has been blocked due to legal restrictions in some countries.

    Carmen rollers must have been realy realy dirty!

  21. MITZI & HUGGY JON: The link works for me.

    Perhaps it's blocked from the sensitive eyes of Quebecers.

    They're not dirty at all. It says, “Used very good condition and clean.”
