well, the theme changed (becuase it's for abercrombie and influences should be american...).
sticking with the 60s, and looking at what was happening with the youth then, i found this film from '61 - Where The Boys Are, a tale of 4 college girls from the chilly midwest heading to Ft Lauderdale for spring break. i promptly downloaded it, kinda expecting to be bored but hopefully inspired.
and inspired, i was. and not bored at all. i kinda loved it, infact. and i took 57 screencaps (a couple purely for blog purposes, not for sketchbooking), of which there are a bunch below....
it's just so kitsch! and 60s! and the colours! and that black and white gingham bikini which i couldn't for the life of me get a decent cap of but it was stunning! there was a lot of gingham. and stripes. and all four of the girls sported a peachy lip throughout (see Merrit, in the last cap) - which means i am now searching for a peachy lipstick, of course.
