1970 was the year the Beatles broke up. Let It Be was #1 and Paul McCartney released his first solo album.  All My Children premiered. Bras were burned. The US, France and the USSR were testing nuclear weapons all over the place. The US announced its 500th nuclear explosion. The Chicago Seven were found innocent of inciting a riot. Love Story was the biggest movie of the year. The Who’s Tommy was performed at Lincoln Center. The voting age was lowered to 18 in the US and Casey Kasey’s very first America’s Top 40 was broadcast on the 4th of July.  You can enjoy the best part of 1970 – the music – at The Velvet tonight from 7 to 9 pm at the weekly Rock Per Annum event chronicling the music from 1960 to 2012 over 52 weeks.


Fashion continued to be all over the place – with the counterculture wearing bell bottoms, ethnic prints and beads, sandals and leather jackets or long maxi coats. Another great influence was the beautiful, romantic and tragic heroine of Love Story with her long, straight shining hair. She often wore a classic beige belted coat. The belted coat was a signature style of 1970 and I decided to feature that look, slightly inspired by Jennie Cavalleri. This gorgeous jacket, gloves, scarf (foulard) and boots are all a fabulous all-in-one gift in the Peace on Earth Hunt. Like Love, the Peace on Earth Hunt means never having to say you’re sorry. That fabulous bike is from What Next – a pressie from Gidge. I feel so lucky!


The MEB Peace on Earth Hunt gift includes this fabulous foulard, or small lightweight scarf.  The hair is vintage Truth and comes with the color-changing hat.


The skin is a new release from Baiastice called Cloe and comes with six tattoo makeup layers.  The earrings are pearl snowflakes from EarthStones.

    Love means never having to say (WHAP!!!)
    Okay, okay, I get it; you heard it too much back then…. (rubbing ear)
    More to the point, great as always here. I hadn’t taken a good look at that Truth hair before, but I’ll consider it now; and the scarf especially is attractive!
