Grrrrr and WELCOME TO THE 60s!

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.

-Wear peace necklaces, boho skirts, and lots of scarves for a hippie inspired look.

-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!!!!
