Vintage Icons: Episode 2

Vintage Icons: Nancy Sinatra

These boots are made for walkin’, and that’s just what they’ll do!

Can we say iconic? Girl power for days, and considering Nancy Sinatra’s signature hit was released in 1965, it was definitely before its time! But it wasn’t intended as a feminist anthem. Nancy had to convince songwriter Lee Hazlewood that it worked well as a song about a fed-up lady giving her lying, cheating lover the old heave-ho.

And it catapulted Nancy, who recently celebrated her 83rd birthday, into icon status herself. She wasn’t just Frank’s daughter anymore. Her miniskirts, knee-high go-go boots, and tease-it-to-Jesus hairdo helped set mid- to late-1960s fashion trends.

Can you even imagine 60s fashion without the mod mini and boot combo trendsetters like Nancy made famous?

Can we just take a moment to appreciate these boots, which were most definitely made for walking? They bring to mind these gorgeous babes from Franco Sarto, available in the shop.

And let’s talk about those mini dresses! They defined the 60s, baby.

I personally think Nancy would have rocked this aluminum and paper dress in her white go-go-boots!

Or this baby blue hottie!

So, let’s here it for that mod look! And when I think of boots, I will forever think of Nancy Sinatra. And I can’t be the only one. Pull on those knee-high boots and start walkin’.
