  1. Love the fashion. I still have two of those cute short coats from that era, but of course they don’t fit anymore.

  2. In 1968 teenagers were following the fashion of London, the glamour of Motown and many of us had mothers or aunties who could look at a magazine and sew that outfit. How fun to see a photo of the past a see how stylish you were as a kid.
