FEELING MOD

I'm all about the mod dresses today. Sometimes a girl wants something flowy and romantic, and other times she wants something structured with a high collar. This particular beauty is from New Old Fashion Vintage, and it happens to come from the owner's, Amelia's, grandmother's closet. Which makes it all the more special! I can just imagine this number hanging next to other well tailored, full skirt pieces, being worn with pillow box hats and white gloves. I may or may not be imagining her grandmother as Doris Day sitting next to a vanity, but hey, same thing. When styling this I wanted the dress to do all the talking, so I just paired it with some platform sandals and mod white sunnies. And let me tell you, I felt every inch of a classy lady that day. New Old Fashion Vintage has a ton of other classic dresses in stock, as well as quirky summer pieces, tailored high waist pants, and patterned, swingy skirts. If you're in the mood to shop, be sure to pop over and check out her pieces here!

And to give you an idea of the items she carries, here are some of my favorite picks. That first skirt is quilted- how amazing is that?

  14. That outfit is so simplistic but so well put together for a mod look. I think its the dress/sunglasses combo. Mod is a look I never really explore myself but I should, I always think of being a kid and wanting the go go dancer costume (which now that I think of it kind of sounds risqué for a 10 year old)

  20. You look amazingly chic in this dress :) You should be walking down Carnaby Street circa 1964. I'm definitely jealous haha.

    Also, I'm so glad you liked my Yann Tiersen song. I was going to share one of his songs off the Amelie soundtrack but I figured everyone knows those already.

  22. I've been away so long because of the new job I have so I was like "Whoa, new blog layout!" I love it! The sidebar looks very sleek. I'm also digging the mod look, it suits you perfectly. My hair is growing out pretty well, I can't wait to have it at the same length as you. :D I hope you're doing well.
