Ankle Adoration

with one comment

Anyone can wear an anklet (although they shouldn’t), but it takes a special woman to pull off peacock ankle spats. Are you that woman? These lovelies are made to order by jdotdesigns on etsy. Click on the image below to see the 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.

Thanks to the Freedom of Information Act, anyone with an Internet connection and an abundance of free time can visit the FBI’s website and read through their lengthy dossier on The Beatles. Did you know John Lennon and Yoko Ono were almost deported? With so much information available on the Internet these days, you would think more men would know where to find a nice pair of vintage Beatles boots. Nope.

After our feature on vintage leather jackets for men, we received numerous inquiries about vintage leather boots for men.

Get Pumped

with 2 comments

I love brightly-colored vintage pumps. I really love dead stock vintage pumps. And I really, really love brightly-colored, dead stock vintage pumps in my size. Case in point, my newest acquisition. A lovely pair of vintage electric blue pumps in like new condition.

Vintage, dead stock pumps by Proxy. Electric blue leather. Knotted bow detail on heel. Made in Spain. Purchased on etsy for $32.

And here they are on my feet. Don’t they look smashing with my white-on-white tuxedo striped pants?

During my search for these bad babies, I passed on quite a number of awesome, brightly-colored vintage pumps. Below are the some of the shoes I rejected, not because I didn’t like them, rather I’m trying to exercise restraint when it comes to shopping. My loss is your gain, so get pumped.

OK, so these aren’t brightly-colored, but they are exactly like my blue ones! Vintage 1980s ivory leather pumps by Proxy, with knotted bow detail on each heel. From myvintagelook on etsy. $25.
