While watching the classic Sidney Portier film To Sir With Love last week I was reminded of how much I loved the Mod dresses of the 1960’s. This popular London trend swept America by storm during the decade and models like Twiggy helped increase it’s popularity. Today I’ve decided to take this classic trend and make it my own.
A few years ago I stumbled upon today’s dress in one of my favorite stores, Buffalo Exchange. The beaded peter pan collar and lace detail caught my eye immediately. Mod dresses tend to have very short hemlines, so I absolutely love that this mini is balanced with long sleeves. It stays true to the trend while still looking demure.
By adding a pair of chic low heels and a vintage purse, my retro look is complete. My entire outfit, accessories included, cost about $90 ( with my heels being $50 alone ). Whenever I see baby boomer fashion trends reemerge, I take a trip to the thrift store instead of buying off the rack. You’ll stand out without breaking the bank to do so. Cheers to baing a bargain beauty!
