Fun Random Mod Pics Found on the Internet

I love these two pictures from the era. Both feature bright colors that really typify the mod era. In the "Tangee" ad, the models have what is called "the Total Look." I didn't realize that was the name for it, but according to the book I'm reading, that's what they called it when someone was wearing mod fashion that really goes to the next level-- i.e. incorporates full on accessories, shoes, jewelry, belts, etc. When you didn't have the Total Look, you simply had "the Look."

I recently tried to incorporate colored tights into my mini-skirt look, but it didn't quite work. I looked 80's which is something I don't go for. I'm still going to try if I can figure it out, but for now, just sticking to boots or knee high socks.

Of course, the picture of the gals in colorblock dresses is almost too much for me to handle! I've expressed how much I love colorblock and that has not changed. Of the three colorblock dresses, I like the one on the bottom left the most. It has the most space-age vibe.


  1. Oh I do love colourblock dresses as well. I really like bright tights. Have you seen the Godard movie called "Une femme est une femme" (A Woman is a woman). Anna Karina rocks the red tights look without looking ridiculous. I usually don't like Godard movies but this one is just really fresh and entertaining.

  2. I love the tights too. One way or another, I'm going to try and make them work for me : - ) I haven't seen that movie, but I love old movies and classic fashion, so I'll add it to my Netflix queue.
