Mad for Mod, Past and Present

Mod, which began in England in the 1950's, that had it's peak only 10 years later is still seen in today's fashion. It was all about rebelling; girls were androgynous with their short hairstyles.  They wore men's clothing or pushed the limits in short mini skirts and huge fake eyelashes. Two women of the past mod subculture that captured the true essence of it were Twiggy and Edie Sedgwick.
They rocked short, blonde hair, black eyeliner, big lashes, over-the-top fashions, & free spirits. 
"I think something very weird's going on now, 'cause the power that is permitted to youth is quite extraordinary. And they are sort of run by that kind of power." -Edie

Today's Mod, though somewhat toned down, is still present in fashion. Two of my favorite looks are from Agyness Deyn and Zooey Deschanel.  Agyness has the Mod hair and makeup down to a science and Zooey has the flirty vibe in her print mini skirts and with her big lashes enhancing her blue eyes.

So to get you all in Mod Mode hears an awesome playlist for you to boogie to:
