Some vintage brides wanted their bridesmaids to match their upholstery. Others were deeply inspired by nursery rhymes and fairy tales such as Little Bo Peep and Little Red Riding Hood. Still others wished to evoke the appearance of a fundamentalist rainbow cult. Or at least that's what it looks like from these pictures of brides with their bridesmaids from the 1970s to 1980s, that are so bad they're good! Which ensemble is your favourite/ least favourite?
This show was way before my time, but I'm having serious mini-envy from these screenshots of Barbara Eden on the hit TV showI Dream Of Jeannie(1965-1970). The boldcolours! The glossy teased hair!Herlegs! I've had some similar designs on the store before (shop dresses here).
The 1970s was undoubtedly one of the coolest decades of all time for fashion. Halternecks, high waisted trousers, bell bottoms and psychedelic prints were all the rage. Look at these pictures by photographer Nicholas DeWolf of Boston street style from the Summer of 1973.
