Thankful Thursdays: Fashionable Framework



Much like family albums and videos of important events, things we love to see are available in an instant. Wikimedia Commons, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, blogs, and a treasure trove of other sources bring back memories of other times and great entertainment. It was fun to find some great pictures of Leonard Nimoy in the public domain that reminded me of what an incredible actor he was. 


 Looking at pictures from the past is like going to a retro fashion show! Polyester, silk, cotton, and 50/50 blends delivered fabrics that added to the durability and style of wool. There is an assortment of material in this picture as the crew of NC-1701 was introduced to the real-life Enterprise shuttle. Bell bottom slacks, much in style at the time, return to fashion now and again much to my delight. They are so comfortable.


Vulcan ears and inquisitive eyebrows are appropriate apparel at Star Trek conventions.
 Kid Monk Baroni is a 1952 film featuring Leonard Nimoy as the leader of a street gang who chooses a career as a professional boxer in an effort to escape the neighborhood. The clothing has changed somewhat, but breaking free of the past is still an elusive quest today.


Mission Impossible displayed fashion, talent and entertainment on weekly television in the 1970s. Here’s the cast. Hard to believe they were spies! 



 Perhaps clothing does make the difference in how others see each person.  I’d suggest, however, refraining from saying anything to Chewbacca about fashion.

  2. The Star Wars series has some of the most inventive style I've ever seen in a movie. It's my favorite.

  3. I don't think I would say anything to Chewbacca. It was a sad day in out house when Leonard passed away.

  4. It's funny to look back and see how far fashion has evolved. I would definitely say complimentary things to Chewbacca about his attire!

  15. The funny thing is, fashion always comes back around. I am going to be 40 this year and I have already seen a few things from my past come back.

  16. I don't think I would say much to Chewy about anything let alone fashion. :) Whatever he wants is good. :)

  17. It was such a shock to all of his fans to lose Leonard Nimoy. He was such an amazing actor with truly iconic roles.

  18. Yea Chewy's fashion is his own. I will refrain from saying anything to him.

  19. I hate that Leonard Nimoy is no longer with us. I recently talked the hubs into actually giving Star Trek a chance, so we have gotten to see him as Spock "one more time" in a way lately.

  20. When I look back of photos of me from the 70s, 80s, and early 90s, I wonder... what was I thinking? :) I loved Leonard Nimoy (I'm a big Star Trek fan), may he RIP.

  21. Yea you can't say much about Chewbacca's fashion sense since he didn't wear anything.

  22. I am curious how Big Bang Theory will address the passing of Leonard Nimoy. Fond memories of enjoying the original Star Trek.
