Back to School Fashion

In the good ol’ days, summer vacation ended on Labor Day. And school started on the day after the holiday. Do you remember going back-to-school shopping? A very important decision was what to wear on the first day of the new term.
Here is what was “in” in the 1960s:

One of the famous models of the 1960s was a girl named Lesley Hornby. We knew her as Twiggy. She had this to say after a visit to our city, “I’m just mad for San Francisco. It is like London and Paris stacked on top of each other.”

Twiggy never stopped working. She is an actress and a singer, releasing her latest album in 2011. This September, she will be 66 years old. Here she is promoting her favorite city, London.
