All Kinds of Mod

novemberblog125 novemberblog148 novemberblog147 novemberblog139 novemberblog127
Hi all, Marlen from Messages on a Napkin here! There's something about white tights that's got me hooked. It could be the 60's-mod flair that they add to each outfit, or it could be that I get flashbacks of 1st-grade-me running around in mary janes every time I put on a pair. For what ever reason it is, I can't get enough of them!  And when I got this fun top from Marisa at The Shades of Monet Chronicles, I knew I wanted to pair it with these.  A small beehive and corduroys skirt later, and I have the perfect old-timer look.

See how Marisa and Dus styled the same dress below:

Currier and Ives
Marisa's post can be found here and.....

Floral dress (9).5
Dus's post can be found here!  I love how radically different all our looks are- just shows how far one dress can go!

Dress- borrowed from Marisa at The Shades of Monet Chronicles
Skirt- thrifted
Sweater- F21
Belt- thrifted
Tights- TJ Maxx
Shoes- TJ Maxx
Necklace- Illusy from Etsy. I customized it to have m+m engraved in it- my boyfriend's and I's initials :)

  2. My goodness Marlen! I want to scour the thrift for a similar skirt and cardi to yours so I can wear the dress this way now! I REALLY LOVE how you wore this piece :)

  10. Oh, wow I LOVE it! I actually didn't know what this piece was until I scrolled down a bit, I would have NEVER known it was Marisa's dress! I love everything from your incredibly gorgeous hair to your amazing boots. I also love how you threw in another pattern with the cardi-so enamored by this look.

  11. Excellent print mixing, and excellent hair! I've been seriously considering getting bangs again. They look so cute and add a touch of personality when your hair is pulled back. But I have curly hair so I keep thinking about whether I really want to have to straighten my hair constantly. To bang or not to bang? That is the question. Perhaps that'll be the title of my next post, haha.

  15. YOUR BOOTS! ALL THE TIME! SO JEALOUS! ALWAYS. And that deserved all caps.

    I love how you styled this. When I saw it in the preview image on Facebook, it looked like a shot from on a mannequin in a store or something (it didn't show your face at all)
