|Edie & Andy, Twiggy (The original icons)|
I've been loving all of the 60's mod inspiration that has been popping up as of late. There have been subtle hints of 60's chic around for a while now, with cool geometric prints, peter-pan collars, and graphic eyeliner, but it seems as if the cool graphic details and simplistic silhouettes that I love are making a comeback. No complaints here. Can't wait to go out and by a sleek sheath dress and style it with some boho hair and makeup for a modern update.
The 60's have always been one of my favorite decades of American culture; they had the best music, the best art, the best fashion. The British Invasion contributed heavily to my infatuation with the times, so maybe I was born in the wrong decade and the wrong country. If I could go back to any era it would be a tie between the 60's and the 20's. Although in hindsight I realize that I would be facing either the Great Depression or the Viet Nam war, so that does complicate my fantasy a little bit.
Long live Sgt. Pepper and his Lonely Hearts Club Band.
