So, here we are 50 plus years .later. You may or may not have lived during that time. If you did then no description can surpass the actual experience of being in the sixties.

Who doesn’t like 1960s fashion? What’s to not like? During the sixties decade we had the highest hemlines, the lowest hemlines. We had a kaleidoscopic riot of colors. We had the coolest mod design and we had a choice of unlimited fabrics, to say nothing about the lowest upkeep and maintenance on clothes EVER.
