Sixty Seconds Of Happiness

I'm feeling quite sixties inspired in this look. It's always striking to me how I think my skirts are short sometimes, but when I look at photographs from the sixties extreme minis make my hem lengths seem modest. Perhaps what really sells the look though is my thick hairband ala Bardot--I should've really sold the look with a teased ponytail, but since ponytails are usually lazy hairstyles for me it would've been counter-intuitive. I've got Bardot aspirations but can't compete with the level of effort it requires...Anyway the headband is pretty sweet, it's got a special velvety-like lining on the inside that means it doesn't slip or move around at all and the makers, Banded, will donate to charity with every purchase. Their slogan is "one headband=three meals." It's a really great cause and a pretty sweet headband too.
