Dickies: Slacks for Campus Tigers

Dickies: Slacks for Campus Tigers

This is a bit like an adult version of Frosties’ Tony the Tiger for this ad for Dickie’s trousers from the 1960s. Don’t they look greeeeeaaaaat? (see what I did there…?) Actually it reminds me a bit more of Alan Partridge ‘You’re a tiger….’ I was so excited to hear that there’s an actual Alan(…)

David McCallum as Illya Kuryakin from the TV program The Man From U.N.C.L.E.. This episode is “The Bow Wow Affair” and the girl is Susan Oliver. What an amazing pooch! Anyone know what breed it is? I’m not a dog person but this one’s fabulous!

The episode is “The Alexander the Greater Affair” and Opatoshu plays a mad scientist who intends to turn the drugged Illya into a mummy while still living. I haven’t seen this episode, but David McCallum doesn’t look unhappy at being(…)

Roger Moore with Clint Eastwood Hair (IMHO). The photo was taken in 1960 announcing his role as Beau Maverick on the television program Maverick. Good looking boy wasn’t he?

My vintage: 1960s shift in cherry blossom season

I love it when the cherry blossom is out, it seems to be really late this year but it always marks the time when spring has truly arrived! Isn’t it glorious?  I’ve also been waiting for some warmer weather to get some of my new vintage shift dresses out. I love the white collar and(…)

My top 12 sixties shift dresses: designer vs high-street

My top 12 sixties shift dresses: designer vs high-street

I’m enjoying the idea of the sixties revival which seems to be happening everywhere, I’m not one for wearing bold monochrome prints the whole time, but I love a cute sixties shift dress. I wish I could buy all of these, so I thought I’d share my favourites with you, both the affordable high-street ones(…)

The tiny silver man represents the figure of a fallen astronaut.(…)

Barbara Streisand showing her claws, 1962

I really like this photo of Barbra Streisand showing us her claws – she’s so beautiful!  I found this pic on Wikimedia filed under ‘hairy armpits’ which seemed a bit harsh…

Watching the Apollo launches

Watching the Apollo launches

These are photos of the crowds and spectators of the Apollo launches in 1969, which include Apollo 10, 11 and 12. Apart from loving the wonderful array of 1960s sunglasses on display I genuinely envy the people in these pictures. I’ve always been fascinated by space, and vividly remember how excited  I used to watching(…)

Retro trends: 1960s monochrome

Retro trends: 1960s monochrome

There’s a real sixties revival going on at the moment, but I’m getting so tired of the same ol’ Louis Vuitton designs being wheeled out on every red carpet and in every fashion magazine. Lets embrace the sixties monochrome trend, but with a bit of imagination! There are some fabulous retro styles out there and(…)

1960s NASA: Apollo 1 crew in training

The crew of NASA’s Apollo 1 training in Florida. The 3-man crew comprised of Virgil I (Gus) Grissom, Edward H. White, II, and Roger B. Chaffee.
