Hello! My look today was inspired by 1960's pop culture and sixties icons such as Twiggy and Jean Shrimpton. In fact, I even mimicked Twiggy's makeup routine by painting on bottom lashes with liquid eyeliner. 

I styled my sixties inspired look around this vibrant, kaleidoscopic dress. This psychedelic dress is probably one of the best vintage items that I have ever purchased. While out at a large yard sale (held inside a church/school) last Saturday, I spotted this dress out of the corner of my eye. At first, I could only partially see it as my view of most of the dress was obscured by a frumpy black jacket hanging over top of it. However, the second that I got a glimpse of it, I immediately grabbed it off of the hanger. As I began to inspect it, my belief that the dress may be from the 1960's was confirmed. Trippy print? Check. Mod shape? Check. To my delight, the dress only cost $1! The fact that I got this stunning dress from the sixties for just $1 is still hard to wrap my head around. Even better, the dress fits me perfectly. I mean, could it get much better than that?

Transparent heart sunglasses and chunky flatform wedges accompanied my psychedelic dress

Dress: Vintage 1960's
Flatforms: Steve Madden
Heart sunglasses: c/o Giant Vintage
