A Nod to Mod

with 2 comments

This week we usher in the month of March in a modly mood, despite the disappointing fact that “modly” is not a word. But as the saying goes, rules are made to be broken. We have a monstrous, wildly bureaucratic justice system built on that very notion.

Back to March. You’re not really winter, you’re not really spring, you weird and wily month. We think you will agree, march is a much better verb than it is a noun. That’s why we’re going on a modly march this March. The first installment in our March nod to mod begins with the classic 1960s dress. This week, we curated for you a collection of the most exquisite vintage dresses on eBay, all still up for bid. Click on each image below to see the individual seller’s listing.

Matching neck and cuff ruffs trim this super mod, long-sleeve, Young Edwardian-like party frock. $350 on eBay.

Chartreuse Set

with one comment

Marilyn Monroe was buried in chartreuse, the color of her favorite Pucci dress. Chartreuse is a tricky color. It’s somewhere between green and yellow and I’m never quite sure if I love it or hate it. But today I am enamored with it because I found this unusual, vintage suede purse with matching gloves, both wrapped in brown leather trim. $50 on eBay. Click on the images below to see the listing.
