Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Fashion and Fun From The 60’s

Posted on: June 7, 2013

I was born in 1961, the decade known for free love, drugs, Go-Go Girls, Rock and Roll, The Vietnam War, Civil Rights, Hippies, the Birth Control Pill, The Peace Corp, Dr King, President Kennedy, assassinations, integration, Space Explorations, Cuban Missile Crisis, The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, The Beverly Hillbillies, Afros, Crew Cuts, and of course the vibrant and colorful world of fashion.

The Past Is a Blast is a website that has culminated fun and interesting facts about the ’60’s, including popular music, dances, sports figures, politicians even the minimum wage, which at the time was just a $1.00, go check it out.

I was too young to fully understand it all but do remember that I loved the fashion and styles of the ’60’s, the bell bottoms, platform shoes, neon colors, color blocking and pattern mixing…hey, isn’t that the style of today?

Bell bottoms and all those vibrant colors and patterns. So fun to see how fashion history repeats itself:)

Loved my bell bottoms and my super bell bottoms. Those swimsuits are trending now. Just keep things (and if you can still fit into them) they usually come back around 🙂

Yes they do,unfortunately I am not the same size!

I remember those clothes. Since I was more of a child of the 70s, this reminded me of my most favorite skirt ever, an a-line skirt with a triangle of rainbow colors. I loved that skirt. Visiting from Class of June.

Yes, I’ve always loved those skirts as well, and in the 70’s they reintroduced the Poodle Shirts of the 50’s, remember?

I want that black and white polka dot dress!! Groovy!

Wow!! this is just the treat, love the collection well done dear

Thank you – I love the 60’s!
