Berlin: First Impressions

I’ve lived in Berlin for six days now, and I’m pleased to say that the uncomfortable flight was absolutely worth it. Wow Airlines is truly something else. The price point in unbeatable, and now I know why With a total of six checked bags at $70 each, we spent an additional $420 on luggage. Although, shipping boxes to Germany is twenty times that, so while I complain, Wow still was the most affordable option. Advertisements

Groovy Fashion Trends of 1969 (ARCHIVE 2013)

In 1969, Arthur Schatz, a photographer for Life Magazine, perfectly captured the hippie sub-culture fashion of the emerging youth. Schatz photographed a California high school and its many fads including shift dresses, fringe vests, crop tops, bell bottoms, floral maxis and kaleidoscope prints imitating those of Emilio Pucci. I’m not promoting bell bottoms and I’ve never supported the re-emergence of fringe, but many of the styles from the late sixties have come back around in a very good way.
