Bohemian Wedding

leave a comment »

I’m coveting this vintage, fringed maxi dress I saw on eBay today. You could wear it to your own weird hippie wedding in the forest, as a Halloween costume, to a dinner party, lounging on the sofa, whatever. This dress will find a reason to be seen. Current bid $56. Auction ends 9/8. Click on the images below to see the full listing.

1966: Mod Men

leave a comment »

The “Mad Men” season four finale was set in October 1965, so we can logically assume that the fifth season, premiering in March 2012, will be set in 1966, the same year a subway strike brought New York City to a standstill. I can’t wait to see how they integrate that into the show.

1966 was a year of ups. Inflation was up, race tensions were high, the war in Vietnam was escalating, hemlines soared, and the U.S. and Soviets were involved in a little space race to the moon. Up, up and away! 1966 also marked the year the Black Panther Party was formed and when feminists founded the National Organization for Women (NOW).

On the fashion front, 1966 was all about London’s Carnaby Street look. André Courrèges had recently invented go-go boots and the mini-skirt, Pierre Cardin was doing the space age thing and Twiggy, dubbed “The Face of 1966,” dominated fashion magazines.   

This week, we are getting in the mod mood with some 1960s-flavored shoes and boots. Get them now before season five begins and you will be way ahead of the curve. Click on each image below to see the full listing.

I’ll never forget the first time I gazed upon this mod pants suit. All at once I knew I had to have it, and at the same time, I knew that it could never be.
