Rave September 1969

So better late than never as they say here is the September issue of swinging 60's mod mag Rave, this one is from 1969, and of course you all know that is Mr Jagger gracing the cover. By this year the format of the magazine had changed slightly, for one it is larger in size and also a lot less teeny boppy. The issues covered seem more serious and grown up, covering such themes as religion and conform schools. Unfortunately for me there is a lot less fashion featured, but it does focus on some more obscure bands & musicians.

So here are the Zip Girls, don't even try and ask me what a Zip Girl is, it seems like they were really trying to make the phrase "happen"! This feature showcases four up & coming models & actresses, including the late wife of Ian MacLagan who was married to Keith Moon at this time.

And finally.... here is a Baby Doll Make up Ad, I know that Miss Peelpants & Sweet Jane have both featured these before on their blogs - but I'm sure this one hasn't been outed yet?!?

I got some Vintage-a-Peel on Frock Friday

Hello my lovely blogger friends, I am back after a little break away. I have been bunnysitting with a pal of mine. We were looking after a giant house rabbit. Freaky isn't even the word for it! Apart from bunny fun I got my first paycheck from my new job last week and immediately ordered a new dress from the divine Miss Liz @ Vintage-a-Peel. This Vivien Smith 70's number has been top of my wishlist for a while and I was worried that it would be too small, but thankfully it fits like a glove and is soooo gorgeous. Luckily it turned up friday afternoon along with a very cool & sweet card, just in time for me to wear out friday night!

It may take me a while to get round to visiting everyone and I still have to post my September Rave issue, so bear with me chickens!!!!
