Vintage Queen no 64: Laura from the UK Our fabulous Vintage Queen number 64 has a huge collection of fantastic Sixties mini dresses. With her cute heels, Sixties hair style and vintage coats she could easily star in a Hard Day’s Night – and wouldn’t we all loved to have met a Beatle or two in ca 1964. I’m Laura and I currently live in Edinburgh although I’m from Leeds. I’m absolutely obsessed with the Sixties and I’ve got a massive collection of mini dresses, shoes, coats, bags, the lot.Recently I’ve been on the look out for suits to go out in, I love having matching jackets and dresses. It looks so smart and I’m really into the mod culture. I’ve also started a Sixties themed blog, Hip Teens, where I post pictures and videos of my favourite Sixties girls (and a few dapper looking boys). I love the whole Sixties scene. It’s more than just fashion for me, it really is a huge part of my life. 9 Responses isabelle March 22nd, 2010 She’s so great ! I like specially the green dress with the Gucci loafers! Reply Rocketblast March 22nd, 2010 A great look – I like the fact that it can be dressy and casual at the same time and is very distinctive. Reply Sheila Brady March 22nd, 2010 Great, at last somebody who understands the 60’s look and wears it as it should be worn. Love the hair (would have ironed mine in those far off days) no need now with Straightners! Love the flat shoes and the white tights (the quality of the legs help, of course)! Great look well done! Reply Mayara March 22nd, 2010 Loved it all.The 60’s was a great time for fashion.She’s beautiful and has a great taste for dresses. Reply Laura March 23rd, 2010 Thank you so much for lovely comments! Those black loafers are actually from Marks & Spencers via a charity shop though! Reply Laura March 23rd, 2010 I’ve just updated my blog with more info on the outfits i’m wearing in this feature 🙂 x Reply Lena March 23rd, 2010 Laura, where do you shop normally? Any good online shops you’d recommend?x Reply Laura March 23rd, 2010 I tend to buy most of my clothes from vintage shops. I’d recommend Armstrongs and Barnardos Vintage in Edinburgh. Also a lot of charity shops in city centres have vintage sections so they’re always worth a look. I find a lot of stuff on ebay too. It can be difficult because things don’t always fit but a good dressmaker can let out seams or take stuff in. My tip when shopping for 60s stuff is to look out for the potential in a garment. I bought a black dress from Leeds market, took it up and customised it – the dress is now on it’s 4th incarnation. Maxi dresses can easily be made into minis and a bit of gold braiding or beading here and there can really make a difference! Reply Helga April 5th, 2010 A great period to be inspired by! I think she’s awesome! Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.CommentName* Email* Website Notify me of follow-up comments by email. Notify me of new posts by email.
