I have done previous posts about the 1960's Mod era because I love it so much. This style of clothing can be seen on AMC's Mad Men T.V show. A great website for this type of style is ModCloth. Actually, when I was in New York and visited a couple of vintage shops I was surprised at how expensive vintage clothing was. For a dress from the 1960's era in NYC, you would pay from $100 to $150 and up, so I restrained from buying one. When I came back to Ohio I went to the local thrift store to my surprise they had a few dresses on a rack from the 60's, but the rack stated priced as marked. Well, there was no price and when I went up I was pretty sure they had to be expensive because they were in excellent condition- not a stain or a rip. When, she rang my dressed up, the clerk charged me $5.00 for each dress.
One of the dresses is the one in these photos. It fit me perfectly except under the arms had to be taken in a little, so my mother to the rescue. I paired this dress with a pearl and gold necklace also thrifted. This jewelry helped accent my sandals gold accent from Target. I did not wear earrings because when I wore a large necklace. I tend not to wear large earrings with a large necklace, usually if I do they are studs. Personally, I feel that wearing large earrings and large necklace is too much and would have taken away from the dress.
Do you wear large earrings with a large necklace or do you tone down one or the other? Do you have a favorite era you like to wear?
I was a lucky girl and received these 3 awards from Chris Ed. Her blog is great, so definitely check it out. She is so sweet to give me these awards. I think we all need a little pick me up every now and then and this was just what I needed. I will be giving a few blogs these awards later this week.
