I was actually not sure about “Groovy baby!” [Austin Powers, Doh!] – mostly when I read the Urban Dictionary deffinition – but then I thought ‘whatever’ and just gave it a try because it really makes me think of the 60s that I love so much in style, music and fashion. That is the 1965 – 1969 period. So here is me, jumping around and posing like I never did – these are the 60s talking… because, you know, jumping in front of the camera was such a big thing at that time.
|H&M dress and boots|
I love this powerful trend: the 60s with all their colorful outfits, beautiful more is more makeup [plus fake eyelashes], shift dresses, crochet dresses, white and pointed shoes, colorful leggins or hosiery [not on me though, I would never!], beautiful A line coats, and psychedelic prints.
My outfit is 100% 60s – I’ve got the white crochet dress with white pointed toe wedges, a pair of black leggins (I would never wear colored hosiery or leggins – maybe just printed ones – actually I now remember I have a printed pair from Versace for H&M). My 60s cut red coat with flap pockets and a beautiful very 60s characteristic psychedelic printed lining. Little or no accessory at all. My hair & makeup are not very 60s, but that’s just me, keeping things simple. Now tell me, how do you do your own thing with this trend?
Spoiler alert: I promise to be back with more 60s fashion on me or from the stores. I also have some mini skirts stored from some months now, that I can’t wait to get out once the weather will be more friendly.
Iubesc la nebunie anii ’60 si inspiratia lor atat de puternica pe care o resimtim la tot pasul in acest sezon: tinutele pline de culori, makeup-ul puternic si genele false; rochiile shift, rochiile din croset, pantofii cu varful ascutit, pantofii si accesoriile albe, colantii si dresurile colorate [in poze arata ok, dar in realitate am senzatia ca nu fac nimanui o favoare], paltoane in A si imprimeuri psihedelice.
Tocmai de-asta am facut aceasta postare intr-un outfit 100% in spiritul anilor ’60. Rochia mini din croset – bifat! Botinele albe cu varf ascutit – bifat! Colanti opaci – bifat! Paltonul cu croi tipic ’60 – in A, cu buzunare cu clapa, nasturi mari, captuseala din saten imprimata psihedelic – bifat si el!. Fara accesorii. Parul si makeup-ul sunt ceva mai simple decat in acei ani.
Voi cum introduceti anii ’60 in garderoba voastra?
Spoiler alert: Promit sa revin cu mai multe tinute 60s imediat ce vremea va fi mai prietenoasa. Abia astept sa port niste fuste mini pe care le-am luat deja de ceva timp! In plus, noul meu pictorial in Femeia., pentru luna Aprilie, vorbeste tot despre acesti ani minunati – atat de plini de culoare!
Si acum, ca sa-l citez pe un vechi prieten – “Fetelelor, DANS!”
