The one on your left is from eBay, the one in the middle was a garage sale find and the one on the right is from my crazy Great Aunt. It was a Christmas gift but I'm pretty sure it was from her closet and she wrapped it up and mailed it to me. Either way it's a win-win.
I think I just love the simplicity of the Mod style. All you need is a basic shift dress in a solid color or fun pattern. Timeless. I mean case in point, please look at this little collage of past and present Mod fashion.
Top Row: Sienna Miller in a super short mini, Twiggy, the Queen of Mod, in an adorable blousy number, Duffy in a simple sweater rocking the 1960 pigtails and smokey eye, and this fashion spread that was in Lucky 2009.
Bottom Row: A Simplicity Pattern from the 1960s, The insanely talented Adele who can do no wrong, and of course our favorite office secretary, Joan Holloway, from Mad Men.
Let's look a little more closely at that fashion spread from the pages of Lucky magazine. I'm not sure what issue it was from but I do know it was back in 2009 because I ripped this page out strictly for the hairstyle.

Hmmm I may have to make a thrift store trip sooner than later. Anyone want to join me?
