Day 4 - Mod and Miserable
















Ok, I am not really miserable but I have to say this Mod thing is killer. As in, killing me because it's such a hard look to put together! I don't really have anything "MOD" in my closet, which I found suprising considering how much I love retro looks and vintage clothes. The closest thing I had was a pop-art dress which didn't really cross my mind until I was already at work.

Anyway, I did the best I could with:

A Zara shift dress

Black noname knit mock turtleneck (HATE real turtlenecks on me)

Black opaque tights (a Mod must - especially since the dress is way too short me - or work - and which are also super cheap, as you can tell from the ill-fitting baggyness. I need new black cheap tights)

White double-breasted knit blazer from F21 (optical white too, also a Mod requirement)

And finally, my Marc Jacobs patent leather boots. I love these damn things but because I store them in a box, I always forget I have them. What a joy to put them on again!

(do note my makeup is also "Mod" though I just did the exact same thing I did for "Gamine")


You may also notice that my hair is different...

Yeah, I got my hair did yesterday and I am not sure how I feel about it.

Stressed from work, I brought a bottle of wine to the hairdressers - don't worry, she works out of her home. And whilst gossiping and drinking on an empty stomach, I somehow consented to her putting a toner on my hair and making it a shade darker and ashy. I admit I didn't like how brassy my hair was getting lately but I am a GOLDEN CHILD! I miss my goldy hair. Poo. Also, I'm not sure if it's because I haven't washed my hair yet, but do I detect strands of purple and pink in my hair? What is up with that?

Also, the cut was a bit shorter than I asked for - it always is, isn't.

Lesson is...don't get drunk and go to the hairdressers because you never know what you'll look like when you leave!

PS please help support BC Children's Hospital by reading the previous post (see below). Much Thanks!

I love this idea of creating your looks based on themes. I find I always gravitate towards the same kinds of clothes, so I don't know if I would even be able to dress outside my comfort zone! I'm going to try now though.
