40 years after Woodstock

August 12th, 2009

No, I don’t have anything from Woodstock; I wasn’t even there.  I’ve always regretted that I didn’t come back from Europe in time to go, especially since I knew the area so well after spending every summer of my childhood at camp within a few miles of Max Yasgur’s farm.

You didn’t have to attend personally to be part of what Woodstock represented.   Today,  as we celebrate Woodstock’s 40-year anniversary, everyone is talking about it and Woodstock fashion is back in style.   I was reading about this today, a piece with the headline: “Peace, Love and Rockin’ Style”—from  USA Today.   The paper quoted advice from a  fashion editor—on how to incorporate Woodstock style into the modern era: “You want to choose one or two elements, pieces that represent the trend.”  

So this woven bag is suddenly in its element—-Who knew by saving it I’d be fashion forward?

    Hi Darryle,

    This purse is so cute! I’d love it for me and my daughter to share! She’ll be 9 years old in Sept. and she was given some “peace” tie dye t-shirts and a knit cap. This would complete her outfit from that era perfectly even though we’re too young to remember the era, it seems the clothing and style are enjoying a resurgence and as always, what was once old is new again! Peace, man!
