And Be Sure to Wear Some Flowers in Your Hair...

Fabulous fringe, long, flowing dresses, and feather earrings: in case you haven't noticed when you visit your local mall, the year 1969 seems to be back in fashion, mostly influenced, I'm sure, by the Broadway revival of Hair and the upcoming 40th anniversary of Woodstock. Good Morning America is highlighting the late 60s all this week with segments about the Woodstock music festival. Yesterday they caught up with the iconic couple from the cover of the Woodstock record album (who are still happy together, as the Turtles would say); this morning, they staged a fashion show with the female cast members from Hair to show off the summer season's hippie fashions.



I have to be honest - I really wasn't crazy about any of the clothing, except for the Janis Joplin look of floppy hat and huge sunglasses as seen here. I'm more of a mod gal myself. But the price is right for many of these free flowing fashions, especially if you want that Bohemian look on a budget.

Check out this link to see the story behind the story of the couple on the Woodstock album, and click here to see a video clip of the hippie fashion show.
