Mod Blue

Posted on



Dress: BCBG Max Azria.  Bag: JCrew (similar on sale).  Shoes: Valentino (sandal version here) or these similar shaped skimmers (saw them in real life here).  Shades: Toms wayfarers (reminds me of my folded ones).
Here’s a shift dress found at a consignment shop (for a steal).  I’ve got a massive weakness for mod 60s style: shift dresses, pointy or square toe flats – the lot.   There’s loads of shift dress versions though online: here (a personal favourite),  here or here.  Add pointy flats and you’re done.  I like the cut on these black skimmers.
The cobalt bag was a cave in the making.  Flipping JCrew:  too many damn colours.    You lot already know about my cobalt crush… remember this recently….
Tip: Get a size up on shift dresses so it skims off the body and keeps the straight cut.
