My favorite accessory boutique in Seattle called FINI has been ahead of this trend for some time. When I was in Seattle for Easter this last Spring (geez - I've been everywhere this year....), they had PanAm bags prominently displayed in the front window. I love the two gals that run this boutique. If you're ever in the Pike Street area stop by and check out their quickly rotating inventory.

Airline travel was so much different in the 60's and 70's. Smoking was promoted, and the job of a stewardess (ahem, I mean 'flight attendants') was glamorous and in-demand. Here are some fashion inspiring photos of an era long gone, along with some interesting observations of what is happening with our current Fall trends:
|Notice the hats tipped to the side? I wonder if this was the inspiration for Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs Fall hat collection?|
|Green and navy color blocking was the focus of Marc Jacobs Spring Line. See the hat banding on the right? I'm convinced Louis Vuitton is recycling the look.|
|Is anyone else thinking 'Victoria Beckham' with these outfits??|
|I can't help but think of Krista from Peetee's Palace when I see the hot pink outfit. The tights are reminding me of something Helga would wear, but also paired with an orange lace top, leopard shoes and a red bag - respectfully. There is that tied-down hat again.|
|This style doesn't fit anywhere, but its still funny to see the girls had to wear hot-pants for their 'job'. Could you imagine having to wear this? I bet they were grabbed at constantly. Ladies - we've come a long way in the work place.|

Bored? Do your makeup 60's style and send me a pic. I'll feature it on my blog. Rather pull on a 60's outfit?? GREAT - send me that too. Let's have some fun with this.
