From Hem To Heels: FASHION 1968
My previous two posts have mentioned shoes and handbags from the 1960s, so it seems appropriate to end my blogging week with a few more!
I’m not a huge fan of modern day skyscraper heels; mainly because I would look ridiculous tottering along our high street in a pair (or any high street for that matter!) You know the shoes I mean. The ones that have to be at least 10 inches tall otherwise you are sooooooooooooooooo last year! The chunky platform types aren’t so bad; I could probably get away with those for the evening, providing no alcohol was involved of course . . . . . . but that would be highly unlikely!
So in my quest, nay fervent hope, that someone out there will have a re-think about wearing such ridiculous high heels, and look at the possibility of how cool it would be not look like every other female in the land, here is some fun and funky shoe inspiration care of the 1960s.

And by the way, if some of you reading this are thinking ‘I have no wish to look like a fashion throw-back from 1968‘ (or words of a similar nature!), I should add that you can happily mix modern day high street with authentic vintage attire, in order to achieve a look that is head-and-shoulders above the rest. Have you not been listening to Gok?
For example, find a quality vintage jacket and team with your favourite jeans and boots. Going to a wedding? Look for an amazing vintage suit and go for a short, edgy haircut. You don’t have to be a fashion victim from any decade, just try something different and start your very own fashion revolution!
