Shoe Design

What a adorable leather flat boot from the Channel Spring 2015 collection - has a stretchy sock feek to it and very narrow with a crinkled patent toe tip. They would look great with a long skirt. Cute I love it!

A Touch of Fringe

The fringe tend has come a long way since the hippie movement and has twirled its way into today's fashion to everything from long strands fringe dresses, skirts and coats right in line with that 1960's vibe. I'm looking forward to adding a touch of fringe to my wardrobe and on the Miss Sixties Vintage Fashion website in the near future. Fringe is such an incredible added fashion detail; it not only adds lots of movement but a much added glamorous feature.

Established by Augustus Juilliard in 1874,  A.D. Juilliard & Co. of New York City was one of the most prominent in the dry goods commission trade, handling the output of some of the largest mills in the country manufacturing woolen, cotton and silk fabrics.

Fashion Label: ESCADA

As one of the world’s leading luxury women's wear brands, ESCADA stands for modern elegance, cool glamour, and sensual femininity. Founded in 1978 by Margaretha and Wolfgang Ley in Germany, ESCADA designs throughout the 1980's and 1990's provided distinctive creations featuring unusual combinations of colors and patterns, exclusive embroidery, and elaborately designed knitted fashions.The women’s brand was introduced to the European market in 1978, but they didn’t hit the US market until a few years later in 1982. Margaretha was an overachiever, as she was not only the co-founder, but the chief designer as well. She was known for designing bold, colorful luxury sportswear.
