#ThriftStyleThursday: Updated Mod







frock // Forever 21, thrifted, Salvation Army
blazer // Cleo, thrifted, Value Village
pumps // Liz Claiborne, thrifted, Economy Shop
necklace // vintage, borrowed

This might have been the most difficult TST for me in since we revamped the themes for the new year. I don't like dressing in specific decades. I never have. So when Beth over at Life with Bethie made this week's theme "Time Machine", I actually groaned. I have never done that for a Thrift Style Thursday post.

So I decided that I wanted to have another hack at the late 60s/early 70s. A while back, we did a "Mod Squad" theme, and I thought I was really clever showcasing some thrifted Mod Cloth shoes. This time around, I wanted to pull out this thrifted frock and update it to suit my own style needs. That basically means it needed to work for winter.

And here we are, a thrifted blazer, thrifted frock, and thrifted shoes later, and I have decided to pass this off as mid-decade and Mod-Frock inspired. Sure, we'll go with that. 

If this is the first time you've come across Thrift Style Thursday, be sure to click on the images below - these will take you to the blogs of all the other lovely TST ladies. The middle graphic will take you to our FB page. So follow along, and participate by hash tagging your Time Machine inspired outfit with #thriftstylethursday or #tst.






Thanks so much for stopping by! And as always, stay thrifty. :)

  1. Aww, I'm sorry this week's theme made you groan a bit! I know decades can be challenging at times. I think you did a great job in spite of it! I think this makes a great "mod" inspired look! The blue is a great color on you too!

  2. For someone who wasn't thrilled about this week's theme, you did a fantastic job! I would totally buy this as an updated mod look, I love it! I already mentioned the Tardis similarities on instagram, bit I will just say that adds major points in my book!! ;)
    Seriously though, super cute look! You're rocking it! :)

    1. I think the Tardis similarities should have been in the forefront of my brain (or maybe I'm subconsciously telling myself I can't wait to see Capaldi and Coleman on screen again...). Thanks for making this much cooler than I thought it was. :P

  3. That's one of the best things about TST in my opinion - the ability to interpret the theme however you like! And I think you did a great job molding the theme and the dress to fit your taste. Super cute shoes too, by the way!

    1. Haha, thanks, Justine. I think I've learned from TST this year that electric blue is my colour, which is good to know, because I LOVE it!

  5. I love that electric blue! I think the shape of the dress is a nod to the Sixties with the shorter skirt and longer top.

    1. The dress reminds me of the costumes from the new Hairspray movie (with John Travolta). There was no way to make my hair look like that, though. Thanks for stopping in, Tami!
