    Anyone else noticed this 60s-rock throwback trend? Bands like Rooney and the Killers have been sporting a very Beatles-like, clean-cut look with distressed jeans, button down collared shirts, and slim-fitting leather jackets. Personally I like the look.

    But it seems to be pretty guys-only. Anyone got any suggestions for a poor girl who wants to feminize the look? Is it possible to pull it off without looking lesbian? :hopeful:

    and to dress like that for a girl...just wear a lot of vintage and look at smashin fashions styling photos...that's pretty much the look...

    i do it sometimes when i'm in the mood... :innocent:

    I'm going to the mall Monday :flower: and I do have a white belt...hm... :possibilities: The thing is I have little money but Urban Outfitters isn't too expensive, is it? And when all else fails American Eagle kind of works. They have cute jeans anyway.

    i was in american eagle the other day and i saw this girl...and her friend...i could barely stop myself from openly gawking at them...they looked exactly like younger versions of myself and my best friend...

    one girl had on a cute little knit dress with mocassins and the other had on a denim jacket with the collar flipped up and a wht tank under with camoflage cargo pants cut off just below the knee...

    it was looking in a mirror...and believe me...it hardly ever happens!!!

    can you guess which one was me....hehehe... B) :innocent:
