Vintage Love: Lana Del Rey and 60s Style

Can we talk about Lana Del Rey for a bit? I know that she's blown up since her album came out and lots of people have taken to making fun of her, but I'm going to put my head on the line here and tell you guys that I totally love her. I mean how brilliantly has she worked the Hollywood shallowness? This is a girl who released an album as herself and under it's somewhat disappointing numbers reinvented herself and released almost the exact same album! It's a completely sad testament to how we view beauty and talent that Lana Del Rey had to become Lana Del Rey, but I think it's very interesting.

Anyway, aside from enjoying her slow and sultry music, I am a huge fan of the Lana Del Rey style. She's just got this fashion sense that's so reminiscent of 60s bombshells and is as sultry as her music. Lana Del Rey's style is obviously inspired by and a call back to some of those iconic sultry women on the 60s (and some of my favorite style icons) like Brigitte Bardot and Catherine Deneuve.

It's no secret that I love vintage - vintage style, vintage decor, vintage graphics, vintage anything - so it can't be surprising that I adore her style. The 60s have quickly become one of my favorite eras in history for style which is convenient because 60s style is all the rage this spring. I want to start wearing capris and wide headbands for the rest of the season. If you want to tap into some of that 60s bombshell style, I suggest tossing in some touches of leopard print. Then again, leopard print is my answer to everything. Oh super secret thrifting tip? You can find some awesome pairs of capris from Banana Republic and J. Crew if you shop around Goodwills and Salvation Armies in more upscale (read: rich) neighborhoods. I've hit gold there before. You don't have to pick up vintage pieces to pull off vintage style. Anyway in homage to Lana Del Rey and the 60s, I've collected some pretty things for you all to look at. Enjoy!

What do you think of Lana Del Rey? Love her or hate her? What about 60s style?


  1. Love her style ! Anything retro is just perfect

  2. I like 60-s (even though 50-s I love even more), and I was searching for good cpris for years; when they started to appear in the normal (not antik ;) ) shops, I was totally happy! And I like Lana Del Reys style and how she made a statement as a HM-model with their "a la 60-s" collection some years ago.
