Vida in Pants, 1959

Vida59I don’t know who Vida is or where she comes from, but she looks like a free spirit to me. Rejecting fifties circle skirts and the emerging shift dress style of the next decade, she appears here in peg legged, high-waisted pants, a bucket hat, a floaty scarf, and what looks to me like a Pendleton 49er jacket.  (I collected those jackets with big buttons and patch pockets at thrift stores when I was in college.)  And take a close look at her bag, which looks like something she picked up on vacation in India.  Don’t you think she is might be a hippie in the making?
