Get the Mod look!
Hello everyone :). Over the last week, I've been searching high and low all over the internet for a prom dress for my end of year ball, meaning I've probably seen almost every dress on the internet by now (almost sounds like I'm complaining... but I'm really not - couldn't imagine a better way to procrastinate!). Anyway, whilst looking through billions of dresses, I amassed a little pile of mod-style ones that I couldn't help but put in my 'favourites' folder. So I thought I might as well show you all, because they're rather beautiful (if a little expensive).
Of course, the peter-pan collar was an inevitable addition to the list of 60s mod style! So to kick off... two beautiful examples of the classic collared dress. I couldn't resist adding this TBA one, with its beautiful hand-made collar and luxurious silky fabric - although the price tag makes me want to cry! This YUKI one is a cheaper alternative, and just as charming :).
And some more beautiful dresses! The one on the left is probably one I could just about get away with for the prom itself (obviously hem-lines are rising from the traditional below the knee protocol)... or maybe even the Dorothy Perkins one? Hmm! But my favourite is without a doubt the middle one - just so 'Biba'!
