A Nod to Mod

Hey, so this hardly ever happens, two outfit posts, two days in a row! But I just couldn't help it. The weather has been so dreadful lately, and today it was really nice. The sun was just beating down, and I nearly broke a sweat in tights and a coat!

I have never worn this dress before, but I thought the weather was asking for it, so I broke it out today. It's a vintage dress that I saved from my sister who was thinking about cutting it up and re-using the fabric. For me, the length is a bit weird, so I was considering hemming up about 3"-5" inches for more of a mini dress look. Any thoughts? It's pure silk, and it looks like it was either custom designed, or custom tailored. There is a slit in the back, but there is a modesty panel-thing behind it, I have never seen that design feature before! It not a normal kick pleat or slit, but I like it.

I just adore the pink geometrical print. So 60's!

The sun was so bright, so the pictures are a bit over-exposed.

I don't know if you can really see the "modesty panel" for the slit, but it's there! It's made with self fabric, so it's not really noticeable.

The coat is an awesome thrifting find, that I found on the same day as my other black coat.

 It's also a bit snug in the chest, but I don't really care. This dress is a definite no for busty girls because  of the neckline, and maybe even the print and color, but I just think it's darling!

 I did 60's inspired make-up too, but for some reason, my face doesn't show make-up very well in photos. I used quite a generous amount of mascara on my bottom lashes, wore a very light lavender colored eye shadow, and did a pink lip. Oh, and a small cat-eye.

 It's perfect weather right now to listen to Simon & Garfunkel, and that is exactly what I am doing. Even more specifically, the song that's on right now is Scarborough Fair (one of my all time favorites!) Some other good music for this sunny, warmish weather is She and Him, Nancy Sinatra, The Black Keys, Of Monsters and Men, and The Beatles.

Enjoy your day everyone!
