"Marcia, Marcia, Marcia! That’s all I ever hear is Marcia!"

There’s a reason that famous line was uttered by Marcia’s tv sister, Jan Brady. Marcia was kind of fabulous in her own wholesome 60s SoCal way. Fabulous enough that we were inspired to pull together a sale full of Marcia-era staples - funky, double knit dresses, flower power prints, and citrusy colors.  

1. Twiggy-Era Striped Dress, $65; 2. 70s Floral Cardigan, $35; 3. Yves Saint Laurent Red and Turquoise belt, $75

Nifty Pursuits: Vintage Cocktails

image

Sure you could have a beer, or even swill champagne all night. But when it comes to New Year’s Eve, wouldn’t it be that much more fun to mix up a few  drinks from the days when cocktail, not keg, parties were the way to socialize?

Just add some air kisses and start calling everyone “dahhhhling!”, and trust us, you’ve got yourself one memorable night ahead. 

Get the Look: Sharon Tate

image

Though 60s actress Sharon Tate’s life ended with an unspeakably heinous tragedy, we’d like to take a few moments right now to remember her as the beauty she was. 

Her signature look was breathy and blonde, sex appeal that came from her pouty innoncence.  The slightly teased hair, done up eyes and baby-pink lips looks just as great in 2013 as it did in 1963. How to get the look?

INSPIRED: LOVE STORY

image

Sure, a movie about two (really) good looking people overcoming class barriers in the name of their love is always going to be a good story. But what’s kept Love Story  a perennial favorite may not just be a super-dramantic plot line, its probably also the clothes. Scene after scene of New England cold-weather collegiate hallmarks, like wool kilts, camel coats, and furry hats, these tried and true pieces can certainly withstand another year of replay, just like the movie. 

1. Camel Wool Trench Coat, $125; 2. Brown Chunky Knit Sweater, $55; 3.Faux Fur Hunter Hat, $29; 4. 60s Plaid Pleated skirt, $55, 5.Leather Briefcase with Gold Buckles, $115

Merry Christmas!
