"Bob Dylan put it perfectly in 1964 with the release of his record "The Times Are A-Changin'"-- the 1960s was a time of great change that was reflected in the lifestyles, fashions, movies, music, and people of the time. Even in our present day, we find remnants and inspiration drawn from the decade we called the Sixties. We wear skinny jeans in ode to Audrey Hepburn and we don leather moccasins that any attendee of Woodstock would applaud. From long gold owl necklaces, to tribal printed shirts with "bubble" sleeves, whether we realize it or not, the 1960s has had a lasting impression on our current decade."

As some of you know, I'm a 1960s girl at heart. I don't need rockabilly style or poodle skirts-- I need some die hard 1960s glamour! The 60s was a time of diversity in fashion. It was all about breaking tradition and moving forward. Hair saw all lengths from the Vidal Sassoon bob to the teased flowing locks of Jane Fonda.

The 1960s was the era of the mini skirt, pillbox hat, shift dress, and swing coats. Footwear brought on the go-go boot and patent leather or vinyl materials. The late 1960s was the age of the androgynous hippie fashion-- frayed bellbottoms, tie-dye, headbands, and peace signs. So here are some 1960s pieces (both vintage and handmade) that make my heart swoon.
