Last night I was invited by Lady Carolyn to dress in one of my favorite decades of fashion, the 1960s, to appear with a couple other gals as a visual aid in one of Lady C's presentations on vintage fashion. I teased my hair, drew on my giant winged eyeliner, and donned the dress of a Modern.
I have never dressed in Mod fashion before. My flavor of '60s leans towards Dior and Jackie O, but I have an appreciation for the broad array of styles and subcultures of this decade. Each of them had their best looks, and their worst.
Despite it not really being my bag, baby, I *loved* wearing this vintage go-go dress, made of stretchy polyester, and cut surprisingly modestly. The boots are reproductions and were a trip to wear, being all plastic and tight and non-breathable, but they really made the outfit iconic.
|Thank you, England, for Twiggy and the 60s mod look. <3|
