Preppy in the City

Have you noticed all of the sixties influences in fashion right now?  I was over on Camille Styles yesterday talking all things sixties fashion.  You can see it in the round-toe ballet flats with the short stacked heel, the straight swing coats à la Jackie Kennedy and the short shift dresses that are oh-so-mod!
