AH!! I have been away and have had like no time to blog. :(
Anyway, I decided to do my 1960s fashion dressing now!
So lets start!
-The 60s were and era of change. Women made fashion history by beginning the trend of wearing pants. Jeans were in, and most skirts were OUT.
-Skirts were SUPER short (aka micro mini).
-Think geometric for hairstyles, as well as the beehive, and plenty of straightening.
-Bell bottoms were a trademark of the 60s.
-Throw on some kitten heels and begin to feel oh so very 60s!
-There were also a lot of tank turtlenecks, although unless they are the real deal, these have a lot of potential to look TACKY!
-Think of Jackie Kennedy and Mary Quant for inspiration.
-Pillbox hats and big sunglasses were huge in the 60s
Oh, and the Beatles formed in 1964. Man do I wish I lived then. I could have had an authentic Beatles shirt, and seen them in concert...sigh!
So go now...and DRESS UP!!!!
