My Current Obsession: Sixties Style

Out of curiosity, I picked up the film "In Like Flint," from my local library this weekend. It is a sixties spy spoof that is considered a predecessor of Austin Powers.



While the film was just okay, it was the fashion in the film which really renewed my love for sixties style.

Unfortunately, I couldn't find any photos from the movie depicting the glamorous clothing worn by the beautiful actresses.

Instead, these photos give a taste of what I'm talking about.











I'm so in love with sixties fashion, that I've decided that for the next month I will be featuring some of my favorite sixties style icons.

Until then, what do you think of these photos? (They were all taken from my image haven, My Vintage Vogue.)

PS. Thank you for your kind critique of my poem in the last post. It encouraged me to keep writing more poetry and possibly share more with you later! :)

I love the sixties fashion not just because the clothes were glamorous, but because the women were so elegant and feminine back then. Loving their hairstyles and coats. My favorite picture is the second one.

Leia said...

They all look so classy! I could SO dress like that every day :)

I love love love this post. Thank you for your comment, it is always so fantastic to hear that someone can relate to one of my secrets. I am so sorry that you are going through the process of losing a friend - I can't even begin to explain how heart breaking it was for me so I feel awful for you. It always seems crazy to me when I put up a secret that is completely personal and someone can connect to it. That is what is so lovely about the whole process. I hope you are well!
