It’s been a while since I got my groove on but luckily for me, Crocs was kind enough to provide enough groove for all of us last night! At the Grand Avenues, Crocs hosted a retro event which, for me, was a home-run in all aspects.
So what exactly is retro? – reviving the styles and especially the fashions of the past: fashionably nostalgic or old-fashioned.

And that is exactly what was going down at the Crocs store last night with their 70’s theme!

The 1970s, was a decade that saw many diverse forms of music funk and psychedelic rock and medleys and sketches that aired on local TV. It was also the birth of movies and plays that are still groovy to date such as, Saturday Night Fever and local play “The Salmiya Bachelor” starring Kuwaiti star Abdulhussain Abdulredha. Not to forget, the funky fashion in the 70s that flaunted bell-bottoms, afros, sequins, loud prints and the androgynous hippie look.
