Fashion tends to be quite frivolous. Here today, gone tomorrow. Those 'moody blooms' Vogue are harping on about? They'll be over before you can save enough for that 'must have item'. However one thing fashion does have going for its redemption is its love of recycling. Oh how very green of them. Trends may be over in a heartbeat, but they do eventually come back.
One trend that keeps coming back time and time again is The Sixties. I never really thought I got it to be quite honest. Go Go Boots and velvet were never really my cuppa tea, but when I put on this dress whilst visiting my parents for Christmas my mum exclaimed 'Oh how very sixties!'. And so the modern sixties shift was born. Feeling full of inspiration, I paired it with a pair of pale tights, a crucifix and yellow pumps for a look that said 'It is the Sixties... the 20th time round'.

As fashion is so fast paced, I rarely want to invest in such niche trend pieces, however one of the best investments I think you can make if you want to get on board the trend train is a dress. Dresses are incredibly versatile- take this dress, I didn't even think of 60s at first. I actually intended to pair it with some studded boots and toughen it up. There's already 2 trends in one right there with hardly any thought.
I got my dress from Warehouse, and I'll let you know right now, I've been very impressed with how well made their dresses are, which is incredibly important if you are going to rework something for another trend in the future. Also a little secret- my dress is now in the sale- snap it up quick lovelies, it's a winner.
