the sixties: british invasion

I'm watching the Sixties: The British Invasion on CNN right now and I can't take my eyes and ears off it for too long. In honor of my favorite period in music and fashion that I would share some of my favorite images from the 60's. If you follow me on Spotify you know that a lot of 60's music pops up on my playlists too.


I could watch these documentaries for days. Any recommendations? This one just ended as I pieced this post together during the commercials.

  1. Have you seen this? It borders on more 70s fashion but still one of my favorite things ever. I recommend viewing in full screen mode :) http://life.time.com/fashion/life-looks-at-high-school-fashion-circa-1969

  2. ahh I love all of these photos so much, I need to find this documentary! I lived and breathed this topic when I was doing my honours work on London in the sixties. wish I had some more docos to recommend but I mostly read books. although if you pick a band you can usually get great documentaries on them! Amazing Journey is a good one for The Who.

  3. Is that film or book? Either way I'm looking into it! Can you recommend any good books? I studies the Beatles in school for my major and it was easily one of my favorite courses.

  5. I love this post as mod style will forever have my heart. If you've never seen A Hard Day's Night you must check it out. George and Pattie met on set and you can spot her in a couple of scenes. :) xoxo

  7. Wow it looks great, I've never heard of it before. I suggest you a book, instead of a movie.
