A Year in Review – Day 11
Today, I thought I’d show you the many ways in which I embarrassed myself wearing Mod clothes. Some of the outfits are just strange, some of the outfits are just bland and the rest of the outfits are just “I’m headed to a costume party.”
Now, for your viewing pleasure, here is Mod gone wrong —
I know I posted this picture the other day, but since this is the “worst of” Mod post, I just had to put it in again. To me, this dress is even older than Mod — it’s like a dress someone would wear in a silent movie. I could be tied to some train tracks in a dress like this.
Black boots, white tights, a blue skirt, a turquoise necklace and a lavender blouse? I just don’t know what to say about this one… except I’m sorry.
Here’s an outfit that’s in Mod-no-man’s-land. A shirt with a huge bow on it and yellow pants. Maybe I could get a job as ‘Games Director” on a cruise ship — I think a whistle and some hula hoops would actually improve this outfit.
The sad part is, I remember thinking I had it going on in this outfit and was curious as to why no one during the day complimented me on my fabulous ensemble. Maybe because I was wearing SAILOR PANTS AND REALLY POINTY WHITE BALLET FLATS.
Here is some “Mrs. Roper” jewelry I bought for my Mod month. I particularly didn’t like the big, chunky Mod jewelry.
Here is a bizarre, almost 1970s outfit. Clearly, I’m on the verge of a Mod breakdown.
And finally, here I am looking like I’m off to a costume party. But there was no party to go to. The only thing I did have to do in this outfit was check on our neighbor’s dog…
… which meant climbing the fence and revealing the fact that bright green tights do not make your thighs look smaller.
I could show you more Mod gone wrong outfits, but really, I think these outfits kind of say it all. If there was a way to modernize Mod, I couldn’t figure it out. If there was a way to were white tights on our farm without getting them dirty, well, someone’s going to have to share that miracle with me.
I’m really glad I did it though. Wearing clothes that are so outside your comfort zone is good for the soul. It automatically removes so many fashion fears and leaves you with a feeling of freedom. You can now experiment with any style you want without the worry of looking stupid. After all, you’ve already looked stupid and nothing bad really happened…
So go for it.
