twisty little girls


As a teenager I was a huge Beatles enthusiast (remember me from LiveJournal, anyone?) and their music is still very dear to my heart. Famously hysterical female fans circa the early sixties are my current style inspiration, with their Peter Pan collars, floral patterns, ruffles, ribbons, and cat eye glasses. Screaming and sobbing optional.

Those gals were awesome and I seriously want all of their outfits and haircuts! I never looked as stylish when I was screaming my lungs out at a backstreet boys concert. You've got great taste as always dear! x

this is such a great post! i love the photos of the girl hysterically crying (though i wouldn't love it so much if i had to stand next to one of them in real life) but their style is wonderful and definitely something to take inspiration from!

This is like a time capsule to that era - it makes me wish I could have been a swingin' teenager and been a part of one of their concerts back in the day! xx

Ah yes, the fan girls! I love these girl's outfits. Too bad I didn't know you during LiveJournal days, I would have enjoyed Beatles tid bits from you!
