Etsom·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.

About a decade ago, my friends and I entered the Coney Island Mermaid Parade with a Studio 54 float. The float’s design was bare bones, but it did include a live DJ, a bartender, a bouncer, and lots and lots of fabulous disco-era costumes. There were 40 people associated with our the float, and we had an absolute blast. That parade popped into my feed recently, and it got me thinking about disco – the style, the fashion, the design, all of it. So today is dedicated to the disco era and that one summer when I spent all my time looking for seventies dancing costumes.
