Fifteen Wonderful 1960s and 1970s Vintage Fashion Blogs


In May of last year I received an email from a lovely reader and online vintage inspired clothing shop owner named Sally in Australia (who was on the hunt for some 1960s and 1970s blogs to check out). Though these are not the decades that my own blog or tastes in yesteryear fashion typically center around, after many years in the vintage blogging realm, I'm happy to say that my path has crossed with many for whom such is the case and I was able to send her a quite a good sized list of such sites.

Ever since then, I've had the reoccurring thought that such a list might be of help and/or interest to some of my readers here as well, so I'm sharing that (now updated and slightly expanded) list here with all of you today.

I fully realize that the sixties and seventies might not be - to borrow a term that would be quite at home in the era, especially in the UK - your bag, but it's important to keep in mind that many of these folks are incredibly passionate about such time frames and that we share a collective love of past in common. As such (and I hope that goes without saying, but…) their sites are every bit as important and worth following as those that focus on earlier (or newer, as the case may be) decades and time periods.

The resurgence in recent years for 1960s and 70s fashions shows no sign of slowing down and I fully suspect that as time goes on, and a greater number of years have passed since those decades wrapped up, an even larger number of folks will embrace such styles and turn to not only wearing and filling their homes with sixties and seventies offerings, but to blogging about them as well.

You may know, and possibly already be following some of these sites, but I hope that at least a few will be new to you and that you'll pop by and say hello to the fine, hard working, vintage adoring folks there sometimes, too.

The following list is one that I composed myself of blogs - arranged alphabetically - that have a particular focus on the 1960s and/or 1970s (that isn't to say that their respective writers don't enjoy/wear other time periods as well, just that at present they put a lot of emphasis on one or both of those decades).

I'm certain that it is not a complete list of such sites by any means (simply an assortment of some of those in the field that I'm most familiar with) and definitely welcome you to share others that you may be aware in the comment section of this post.



Fifteen Wonderful 1960s
and 1970s Vintage Fashion Blogs




1. Celestial Calling: With a piercing gaze, flowing blonde locks, and an immediately evident flower child fashionista vibe, one instantly picks up on the fact that twenty-something year old Caitlan from Australia has the boho hippie spirit flowing through her veins and wardrobe alike and that she's keen to brighten the world with it wherever she goes. (She has also a fun Etsy shop called Goddess Sea where she sells styles akin to those she sports herself.)



2. Get Some Vintage-A-Peel: Helmed by historical costume specialist and avid collector Liz Eggleston, this engaging blog (that will turn a full decade old this year) is chock-a-block full of fabulous, diverse 1960s and 1970s fashion images from a wide array of sources, each of which is informatively presented and deeply enjoyable to spend time with.



3. Happy as a Lark: Laurie and her sense of diverse style are both just plain cool! She described herself as a huge 60s and 70s fan and many of her fabulous ensembles echo that fact, while also often weaving in elements as diverse as ladylike chic to punk rock to mid-century kitsch. Not only does Laurie adore fashion, but she's an avid crafter, too, who counts crocheting and appliqué work amongst her creative passions. (And, just like Caitlan, Laurie has an Etsy shop that shares the same name as her blog, Happy as a Lark, wherein she sells some of her incredibly cute handmade products.)



4. I Broke My Hip Doing The Twist: Retro looks, great music (often on classic vinyl), zine writing, and thrift shopping are amongst Tessa's loves and each one shines through in her vibrant, delightfully fun ensembles, many of which are a strong nod to the 1960s, 70s and 80s.



5. Manic Pop: A mod loving, retro inspired fashion and fabric designer, blogger, and abstract artist, Nicole from Manic Pop is the sort of super cool, super talented gal you just know you'd be good friends with in person and whose sewing and fabric creations you'll find yourself swooning over like a teenage fan at a 1960s Beatles concert.



6. Sewing In The Sixties: Hailing from Down Under, Sydney, Australia based Catherine is a 1960s lover with a penchant (and immense talent) for sewing and a vibrant, fabulously charming, and very chic wardrobe that would make even the most ardant 1940s fan feel a sudden urge to dip their toes into the sartorial waters of the swinging Mod era years.



7. Style Sixties: Chic, fashionable, and devoted to all things 1960s, Sarah from the UK channels the spirit of everyone from Jean Shrimpton to Twiggy with her on point ensembles, which she does a great job of highlighting on her always engaging blog that is busting with snaps featuring retro garments that she sews herself. (And like quite a few of the other bloggers in today's list, Sarah also has an eponymously named Etsy shop, Style Sixties, where she sells clothing, fabrics and patterns from the decade she holds most dear.)



8. Sweet Jane: Unlike most of the other blogs on today's list, this author of this marvelous site does not post many (if any, I'm not honestly sure) photos of herself, instead she shines the well deserved spotlight on a treasure trove of 1960s and 1970s fashion magazine and book images from her personal collection. A must follow for anyone with even the slightest interest in either decade!



9. Tenement Funster: The always lovely Freya is another UK native with an unending love of the sixties, including the Fab Four, which she expresses in a myriad of ways, including through her stop-you-in-your tracks, phenomenally talented art (that could easily have graced the cover of any sixties album). Sweet, creative, stylish, and a keen music lover to boot, Freya's blog always delights with its mix of fun and informative posts (plus, for more of Freya's wonderful 1960s filled world, be sure to check out her cool YouTube channel).



10. The Carnabetian Army: Another devoted fan of The Beatles, popular 1960s fashion blogger Lucy captures the sweetly feminine side of decade especially well via pieces such as baby doll dresses, sheer blouses, and Mary Jane shoes, and leaves one with a hankering to go vintage shopping for some girly Mod era pieces of their own.



11. The Flying Clubhouse: It is a little known fact that I secretly have a very, very strong bohemian side to my fashion sense and were I to let it run wild and free, I like to think it would jive with the impeccably lovely looks that Anna shares on her beautiful blog, The Flying Clubhouse. Each is sophisticated, wonderfully coordinated, and teeming with notes of yesteryear style.



12. The Secondhand Years: Mom, thrift store shopper, and passionate sixties fashion fan, avid blogger Curtise is an inspiring dresser who never shies away from colour, pattern mixing, layering and oodles of other components that help elevate a retro look from merely nice to flat out sensational!



13. Velvet Codeine: LA based blogger Larissa's style is all kinds of earthy, boho, Stevie Nicks approved cool of the sort that you just know would have ensured her a front row spot (if not on the stage itself!) at any groovy rock concert back in the day.



14. Vintage Vixen: A legendary figure in the world of sixties attire, blogger and vintage shop owner Vix is a style maven with a flair for hippy looks, punchy hues, ethnic style influences, and bold, beautiful ensembles that will make your jaw drop time and time again.



15. Waiste: Dreamy, absorbing, and very, very lovely, Sara Louise's expertly curated blog (much like her vintage shop) is a feast for the sixties/seventies, earth child loving soul that never tires of checking out stellar sixties/seventies filled and inspired looks.


Plus...I'd also like to mention my lovely friend Daffny's mid-century focused blog, A Vintage Nerd. While her site is not strictly 1960s (or 70s) centered, Daffny has a longstanding interest in this era and often discusses it in such contexts and films and books, as well as making the sixties an integral part of some of her lovely vintage ensembles.

So often as fans of the 1900s - 1950s, we can be quick to dismiss the fashions and cultural importance of the next two decades that followed those that many of hold nearest and dearest, but doing so is a disservice to ourselves and to history itself. Even if we're not wild about the styles from those years, they were still incredibly poignant, eventful decades that forever changed and shaped the course of history and fashion alike.

From politic strife to civil rights, the Vietnam War to the incredible music scene, pop culture icons to styles that, objectively, often have more in common with those of earlier decades than many of today's present offerings, the 1960s and 1970s are years that we owe it ourselves to get to know better, especially if we didn't get a chance to actually live through them firsthand.

Each of these engaging vintage fashion blogs can help on that front, while also being oodles of fun for all kinds of other reasons, too, and I really do encourage you to visit them all and find some that you might be keen to add to your feedreader.

After all, a vintage lover is a vintage lover, so to speak, regardless of the decades that they hold nearest and dearest and sometimes, you know, it can be downright refreshing to look at the past through the eyes of someone whose key focus is on a time period other than those that we fill our own days with.

If it ever stops raining, perhaps I'll do a shot with some of them (haven't done a strongly 60s inspired outfit here since those gorgeous snaps Tony took of me last year in front of the water fountain down by the lake here).

  6. Fantasic! I used to collect more 60's centered items when I was younger and first starting off thrifting. I love knitwear from any era and would love to add a few more 60's/70's pieces to my wardrobe. You found some really great ones here:)

  7. This takes me back to my early 20s, during college we had a wonderful 70s vintage shop that I spent a lot of time in. I had a thing for wide lapel shirts! I also have an ongoing love affair with the 60s, mainly due to my parents, and I explored that era during my mid-20s. I was very much on the mod side of things and Sarah at Style Sixties reminds me so much of myself back then, a sharp red bob and cute mini dresses. xx

    1. That is thoroughly cool! I bet you looked terrific in your swinging 60s and chic 70s styles.

      Sixties looks were actually something of a gateway for me in terms of actually wearing vintage fashions, too, in part because they were often easier to emulate with items from my own closet (and the occasional actual 60s hand-me-down piece) than 40s/50s ones when I was in the middle school age bracket. I wonder if such rings true for a lot of us (much, in a way, as many vintage gals were into goth looks for at least a little while in their youth).

Goodness, did it feel great to flex my blogging muscles again, put (digital) pen to paper and whip up this enjoyable post - which now totally has me in the mood to rock some 60s/70s styles, too. I might just have to put together another 60s ensemble (the last one was this past summer) and do a shoot come springtime.

  12. The styles of the 60s and 70s are not ones I particularly like, nor do they like me back. I look dreadful in them. These ladies however, look utterly gorgeous. I hope they give much inspiration to ones who are looking for these styles. I was born right at the tail end of the 70s so I don't remember them the first time around, my mum embraced them wholeheartedly and our house remained very much in the brown and orange style for quite some time though. Happy days. Thank you for sparking some memories for me. Wishing you well my dear xx

    1. I know just the colour palette you mean. When I was little, my paternal grandparents' house still had many strong 60s and 70s influences (including thick, wonderfully soft shag carpeting that I adored laying on) and anytime I see such in other people's house, books, movies, magazines, etc, it sends me on a trip straight down memory lane.

      Many thanks, dear Emily. I'm happy to know that I could do the same for you with this fun post.

      Have a splendid week!

    1. That's really cool, sweet Janey. I got my feet wet, so to speak, in a lot of respects when it comes to actually wearing vintage with the more boho/flower power looks of the 60s/early 70s, so I feel like I have strong roots there, too. If I can ever find a pair of flared jeans that looks good on me again, I will definitely rock them and some of my current boho-y tops. The styles from the 70s that you've shared with us online always look breathtaking on you and I look forward to seeing any and all others that you post.

  15. As much as I love 60s and 70s style, I've spent very little time checking out bloggers who delve into that era. Thank you for such a fantastic introduction!

  22. There are a couple of my favourites in that list, Vix and Curtise especially, but you've given me some more to read.

    Miss Peelpants (Liz) was the person who first made me reconsider my dislike of the 1960s and 1970s, and look at the decades afresh. The 1960s was, in Britain at any rate, the one that saw a massive explosion in diversity of style and more equality for different groups of people. I love things from that time now.

    1. The older I get, the more my appreciation for, and of, the 1960s and 70s deepens, too. Even if I don't feel pulled to wear many styles from that era, they're still a vital part of fashion, and human, history and I really enjoy learning more about them (as well as seeing how some of today's fashion bloggers interpret the styles of those decades).

Down the road a ways, I'm thinking that I might just have to do one for 20s and 30s fashion blogs as well, to fully sandwich my own nearest and dearest decades (the 40s and 50s).

  30. I love lists like this as it is always fun to discover blogs that I haven't come across before and I only follow two of the ones on this list so there is lots for me to look at! I'm not so keen on 1970's fashions but I do enjoy all the 1960's stuff and could see myself wearing some of the looks some day.

    1. The older I get, the more (early and boho, in general) 60s styles grow on me and I've always really loved both the 70s does 30s styles and what I call the "secretary" looks of the seventies. I adore following these blogs in no small part because of the terrific ladies behind them and also because I find that inspiration is not solely decade specific. I've often seen someone wear a 30s or 60s look, for example, and been able to interpret it in a way that worked well for my 40s - 50s looks - or simply to take a styling cue from one element of that person's outfit. It's a lot of fun to see other takes on old school styles and I'm thinking now that down the road I should pen a similar post that focuses on earlier 20th century fashion bloggers, too, so as to really round out the equation. :)

      Tons of hugs & happy mid-March wishes,

    1. Thank you very much, sweet dear. Of the two, if we take early 60s looks out of the picture, I'd say I'm often drawn more to the 70s as well - especially the chic secretary styles (pussy bow blouses, a-line skirts, etc), but there's definitely lots to enjoy and appreciate from each decade.

      Have a fantastic week!
      xoxo ♥ Jessica

  33. Hello lovely lady! What a fabulous surprise to wake up to! I had no idea there were so many of us psychedelic loving ladies out there...I only know 9 of them. I shall rectify that pronto.
    I've had the pleasure of meeting Freya (Tenement Funster) and Sarah (Style Sixties) in real life and Curtise (the Secondhand Years) and I have been friends for years. The marvels of Blogland. xxxx

  34. I've noticed the 60's and 70's resurgence lately too! Just a few years ago main stream stores were carrying styles inspired by the 50's and 60's... I was loving it and stocking up on as many peter pan collared shirts I could get my hands on... main stream shops can be so fickle though and I knew it wasn't going to last... just last weekend I noticed there was a lot of 70's style out. I love 60's though never really got into the 70's though I do love 70's house style! It's fun seeing these bloggers and their unique styles though! Thank you for posting this Jessica.

    1. My pleasure, sweet lady. It was awesome when peter pan collars were all over the place, I completely agree. They haven't vanished entirely, but I'm seeing a lot less these days, too. I really like the boho aesthetic of both decades and find that I'm drawn to such big time (ditto for the primmer, more ladylike looks of the 70s). I'll have to depart from my usual 40s/50s looks and model one inspired by such here sometime. :)

      Many hugs & happy Thursday wishes,
      ♥ Jessica

  36. I think this was a very refreshing and lovely post Jessica ~ as you well know, I adore my 40s and 50s, and anything beyond that really isn't my cup of tea ~ but all that being said; your intelligent discussion about the merits of the history and also, the simple common bond that vintage lovers of all decades share.... Yes, this was a very enjoyable read. :) ❤

  40. Thank you so much for the mention, it's an honour to be featured amongst all these fabulous bloggers! Vix I know in real life, we often meet up when she's trading at vintage fairs in London, and I've been following Catherine (sewing the 60s), Nicole (Manic Pop) and Lucy (The Carnabetian army) for years. I'm off to check out the other bloggers now! xx

  41. I'm not a lover of the 60's and 70's, as you already know. I think it is partly because I was there (I'm old, you know, born in 1963 I do remember the late sixties and all of the seventies), and also partly because this fashion does not become me. My body is built for fifties fashion. The sewing ladies do appeal to me though, because of their sewing skills. I have often wondered where my fashion taste will evolve over time, I have been a lover of fifties style like forever, and I think I will wear more forties as I become older, but only time will tell. Thank you for making this list, they all seem like lovely ladies that deserve a shout-out. Wishing you a fabulous Easter, and I DEMAND you to take the holidays off (as much as possible). XOXO :)

    1. Your demands shall be met and I have every intention of taking Easter Sunday off - I'm really looking forward to it!

      I get that for sure. I've always madly adored the 1940s and 50s and dress from those decades more often than not. I really appreciate and enjoy learning about other eras too though, even if I don't dabble in fashions from such very often. There's always inspiration to be had and translated into 40s/50s looks from other time periods, so that makes me appreciate them all the more.

      I also, wholeheartedly, appreciate you and your caring, beautiful friendship, dear Sanne.

      Tons of hugs & happy start of spring wishes,
      ♥ Jessica
