I love this kicky, colorful tribute to fabulous 60's chicks. The photos are great fun, and the information is so detailed. I learned a lot about ladies I was already familiar with, and was introduced to some amazing stories, such as Chris Noel--a starlet who gave up her career to devote herself to entertaining vets in Viet Nam.

Looking' foward to hearing more from her!...Read more

Does anyone else remember those multi-colored skakeboard necklaces you'd get on fieldtrips to Olvera Street? Those only-last-a-minute "water baloons" made with elementary-school paper towels? Chinese jacks and their cousins Korean jacks? The Pinky Tuscadero dance? Shoe laces with hearts on them? Postermat? Oh I could go on......Read more
