McCormick Hall 50th Anniversary
To really make this event a ton of fun, we’d love to have the whole dorm dressed to impress in 1960s attire!
So–if you have vintage dresses at home that fit into the 1963 vibe, by all means, bring them back to McCormick! If you don’t, checkhere for some inspiration, and visit thrift stores, Etsy, or other online markets to find your perfect 60s outfit. (and if you’re in Boston, check out Oona’s in Harvard Square, Garment District in Kendall, and 40 South Street in Jamaica Plain, they all have vintage clothing from this period).
The GRTs and House Government are also throwing around ideas for a 60s fashion show, 60s movie nights, and all sorts of other fun things—if you’re interested in helping out or have an amazing study break idea, feel free to email me!
