Carole King

Standard

“I feel the earth move” performance

I just saw a Carole King performance at the Whitehouse tonight, on PBS. Although she looked totally different from the 70s hippie singer I remember when growing up, the songs she sang were just as memorable as they ever were. Listening to her and James Taylor tonight made me want to step back in time. Those truly were the days of singer songwriters.

Jane Fonda in the 70s

Standard

I remember watching Jane Fonda movies in the 70s. She was “hot” and very sexy. Even though she was a bombshell in her younger years, she became an activist for things that matter, and this is ultimately what I love about her. Check out that outfit in the middle. Very status quo for those times.

Favorite Fashion Models of 60s, 70s, & 80s: Where Are They Now?

Standard

Came across this site, Favorite Fashion Models of 60s, 70s, & 80s: Where Are They Now?. I really like the pics of Twiggy. I remember Jerry Hall being Mick Jagger’s longtime girlfriend. Eventually they married and had 4 children. I had a friend in high school, Marie Locke, who was infatuated with the Stones. Stands to reason, I knew everything about them! She loved Jerry Hall for Jagger.

Twiggy is one of the best known models of all time. She started modelling in the 60s and carried on into the 70s. I love this video of her. She is so young and pretty.
