Week of July 22nd

Can you dig it?In the1960’s, the fashion world exploded into a kaleidoscope of color, pattern and texture.  This fashion revolution was born from the youth rebellion of this decade and forever changed how we dressed. Clothing became an expression of who we are.  Now you can see history up close and personal in a groovy display of vintage fashion. Hippie Chic is the new exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts and features a curated collection of some of the most “far out” clothing from the 1960’s and 1970s.  ??The exhibit can be seen until November 11th.  For more information visit: http://www.mfa.org/exhibitions/hippie-chic  Right on!
