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.

80’s fashion trends created a revolution in the fashion industry, with the oversized shirt and sweatshirts worn by women. Another important aspect of the 80’s fashion was Madonna’s style.

The Fashion of the 70s

Standard

Fashion in the 1970s was daring, carefree, and diverse. For women, skirts ranged from extremely long to drastically short and fabrics were bright and boldly patterned.

1970s fashion was varied and changed frequently, but always liked to shock – whether it was towering platform shoes, huge bell-bottom flares, or tight, shiny, disco-inspired hot pants.
