7 Reasons why we love the 1960's so much!

Running a vintage boutique and a vintage-based blog often brings up the questions:
What got you interested in vintage? or Why do you love vintage stuff so much?

So this Sunday we thought we would do a little ode to our favorite era and give you 7 reasons
why we love the 1960's oh-so very much:

1. The absolutely incredible clothing and the influence that it has had today's modern fashion.

2. The beautiful, dramatic winged black eyeliner. Classic beauty.

3. The attention to detail that was paid when designing lighting fixtures. (Our guilty pleasure!)

4. How bright and fun the kitchens looked!

5. The extravagant clocks that looked more like wall art than a time-telling device.

6. The incredible furniture. Everything from the color to the design is absolutely amazing.

7. What other era would produce such an out-of-this-world uniquely designed entertainment unit?!

What about you, what is your favorite thing about the 1960's?

  1. There's nothing like 1960s kitchenware. Cathrineholm, Dansk Kobenstyle, Le Creuset....they are all amazing! The colorful enamels are my favorites.

  2. yay! I love the 1960's too :-)

  3. My favourite thing about the 60s has to be the hair and the colour palette!


  4. Yay! Aside from all of these lovely things, I'd have to say the music as well! The '60s are awesome!

  5. I have to say my favorite 3 things about the 60s is the music, the films, and the history. Oh no-a 4th-the last world's fair which my dad performed in! I am having a shoot where the worlds fair was held in the fall-cannot wait! xox

  6. Love this post! Interior design, fashion, glamourous women, kitchenware ... everything was better in the 60s!

  7. I just love that eyeliner. If my hands weren't so shaky, I'd trust myself to do that more often on nights out! :)
