1967 – an Iconic year! If you didn’t know, the 60’s are kinda my spirit animal. I love the fashion, the looks, the music, the spirit, just dig it all. Maybe it has a little to do with my parents who were newlyweds and new parents at the age of 20. I just loved looking at those vintage family pictures, spurred my infatuation.
