Have a Nostalgic Weekend...

I was recently looking through old photos of myself from my childhood [ahem, the late 70's...] and suddenly felt so nostalgic for this era. I love the way film, TV, and photography from the 70's have a dreamy, misty aura about them. Don't you wish you could walk around in soft-focus sometimes?




[These photos are not from the 70's, by the way. They just have a wonderful 70's vibe!]

I'm not too fond of the clothes from the 70's on me, just because my body looks so much better in clothes with a 50's cut ;) But I think everybody would look good with a constant, dreamy mist around them, like in these pictures. The colours are lovely too. They actually remind me of melted ice cream. *laugs*

Great images. I am a big disco fan. Not all of it was good, but there were definitely some style highlights.

rosanna -- thanks! they are so unique; I want to frame them!

airam -- ice cream is definitely a good comparison -- they are definitely *yummy*. I also cannot pull off the tight, high-waisted pant style of the 70's!

asiancajuns -- I agree - they definitely pull off the 70's aura very well.

details -- I already added you to my blogroll. Thanks!! The best part of the 70's was definitely...well, the toys, because I was little, LOL. But I also have a fondness for the colors (earthy colors) and the music was great!!

style pa -- I agree. Some of it should probably be forgotten!

Lynne said...

oh yes, I'm so confident I would look better in soft focus!

[Tara] said...
