The Nineteen Seventies

The 1970's was an era of maxi dresses, floppy hats, long hair and Afros, bright colors, bold patterns, hot pants and platform shoes; and currently one of the many trends influencing our styles today. The music came from some great bands who produced incredible songs from punk, rock, reggae, soul/r&b, disco and the best love songs came out in the 70's; all creating some great memories for me.

Films

The decade films were entertaining and had the best plots; many of which I have on DVD and can watch over and over again without getting bored.


And the Blaxploitation films, (a genre of black cinema) were filled with lots of kick-butt action, great fashion and had the best soundtracks.


Music

Deborah Harry "Blondie" album released 1976

 Some really greats songs on this album released 1974
Sitcoms

There was nothing like looking forward to watching those weekly 1970's T.V. series. Comedies like "The Odd Couple", "Rhoda" and "Maude", drama's such as "Columbo", "Baretta" and "Kojak" were my favorite cop and detective shows. The variety/sketch programs like "The Carol Burnett Show" and the "Flip Wilson Show" were so funny they kept me in tears; all of the latter were among many that kept me entertained.

Two of my favorite T.V. shows "Colombo" and "The Jefferson's"



And who can forget this locomotive train on Saturday mornings

Luxurious Worumbo

I came across some great 1950's "Worumbo Wool" ADs - so I had to include a gorgeous vintage colbalt blue-colored coat on Miss Sixties Vintage Fashion website by the "Pioneer Coat Company" woven exclusively by "Worumbo"

1955 Worumbo Woolen Coat AD

Available on website ... Vintage 1950's "Worumbo" Wool Coat

GREAT coat - it has the feel of cashmere, but not as smooth. It also features a lapel collar, raglan sleeves and two very large buttons and large flapped patch pockets.
