Those tights are wicked!!! It's crazy to see how different fashion was back then. I wish my mom kept all her clothes from the 60s and 70s...then I wouldn't have to search much for all those pieces =)! Anyway, hope you have a great weekend!!! And happy MLK day in advance!!!

I'm so glad you posted these! The first thing I noticed was how these women seem to embrace their natural shape. Curve were clearly something to be proud of. And their clothes! I would kill for that leather fringed vest in the first photo.

Thanks so much for posting! My lost era! I would have fit right in, but alas I am the product of the 80s!
