I love 60s fashion - or I love the look of it, at least, because when I find a 60s dress in a thrift shop and touch that scratchy fabric...eh, not so much, maybe.  Since the "Shindig"-themed Collabor pays homage to 60s-70s fashion, I decided that I would, too.  Scattered out over the next few weeks, I'll be showing four looks inspired by the 60s fashion icons that Toast Bard's (fashionably dead) C88 makeup sets refer to: Brigitte Bardot, Peggy Moffitt, Edie Sedgwick, and Twiggy. My goal isn't to make myself over to look like them exactly - I'm just attempting to capture the essence of them.

Unfortunately, Brigitte Bardot's essence is reportedly very racist, but mine isn't, so with this look you get the Bardot hair and makeup, but none of the controversy.  I've actually had this LeLutka hair in my inventory for quite some time and didn't know when I would ever get around to using it, even though I love the look of it, so thanks, Collabor, for giving me the opportunity.  The Whippet and Buck skirt is their first mesh release, and it's really, really well-made.  Fully-lined, and by that I mean not just "not invisible" on the inside, but actually filled out with texture so that your invisible alpha doesn't show when you sit down.  I'm really excited about the possibility of more releases from them that are like this!  As for the necklace - I know I recently blogged it, but hey, it's the perfect 60s necklace.  Quite by coincidence (I think), this skybox by DECO has out at the Men's Dept and provides the perfect backdrop for any swingin' retro look.
