Here are some vintage photos straight from 1979 of a bride a groom on their wedding day.


The month is November and as one might expect, the colors are similar to those that we use to celebrate Thanksgiving. The flowers are yellow, gold, and rust. These colors were quite popular during this time period as well. The backdrop is brown and so is the grooms tux.

This 48 year old actress is sporting a no style 1970's hairstyle as she kicks off  "SJP – The New Collection by Sarah Jessica Parker" at Nordstrom's in Chicago.

Sarah Jessica Parker

She has an off center part and no bangs. Each each side hangs down in a relatively straight fashion but toward the ends, the layers split off in different directions. The ends also are lighter like last summer's bleaching from the sun. It gives kind of a beachy effect. The top section is medium mousey brown. She is wearing a white sweater and a long pearl necklace.

Big kinky curly locks make this look a black is beautiful fashion statement. The bulk of the height is around the head with the top being not so tall and the bottom is tapered into the neck. Her sunglasses are big and round and smoky colored with metal rims. Her white frilly top is cropped length with vintage ruffled three quarter length sleeves. She has a wide belt with hip hugger jeans. Her macrame purse is what makes this outfit perfect for the 70's. It's an off white color and has long fringes that hang down and swish back and forth when she walks.

Looking back at the 1970's, we can remember the days of hippies and flower children. Thin headbands were a popular hair accessory.

Hippie Girl with Headband

This woman has long straight medium brown hair that is parted off center and she is bang-less. This is typical of this decade when a no style was preferred. It was suppose to signify a minimalist attitude and no fluff or frills. The thin headband or forehead band kept the strands from falling into the face and also was a celebration of a Native American fashion trend that was common in the previous century. This headband is a macrame pattern with seed beads and a stretchy material makes it easy to fit over the head. What a fun look for summer or possibly for one who wants a costume from the decade of the 70's. I found a fun example here to check out.
