On this date in 1960, the following photograph was published in the Long Beach Independent’s fashion section.
There were a number of photos showing off current fashions available at local shops, but this ensemble was available at Seal Beach’s very own Village Bazaar, located at 137 1/2 Main Street.
As the Long Beach Independent caption copy writer so enticingly put it:
PICCOLO STRIPES set of gay capris by Pants Internationale. One hundred per cent wool and fully lined. Sizes 8-16 are perfect with knit wool tops, and come in assorted colors. Serape wrap completing outfit is hand-loomed Mexican Imports discovery.
Is it wrong to want capris and serape wraps to come back into style?
