It is because the 1960's are "my decade"!
Although my look is generally modern, I have always had an affinity for the sixties and it has influenced my dress sense ever since I can remember. My mini skirt days are over, but I still regularly wear skinny ribs, shift dresses, tights, boots, A-lines, skinny pants, pinafores, geometric prints and architectural details...sometimes all together!
That's not to say I don't like any other decade - I do! I love 50's full skirts and cardigans, adore 20's flapper dresses, and much more. But over the years, whatever tangent I take off on, I keep coming back to sixties style for some reason.
Is there a particular era that you frequently reference in your wardrobe - one that really suits your style aesthetic? Are you a fifties fan, or do you have a seventies sensibility, or are you mad for anything modern? What's your decade?

It is a beautiful book - lay your hands on it if you can!
