OUTFIT: Minimalist mod

Activity: Meeting for worship

Top: thrifted (tailored top, tailored top - nothing in purple currently, sorry)
Skirt: Athleta, old (similar)
Sandals: Charles David via Nordstrom Rack (similar)
Bag: vintage Versace, thrifted (similar)
Earrings: vintage, refashioned (similar)
Bracelet: JC Penney, old (similar)

I finally hit one of my fashion goals on the head (this post)!  And, I only had to get one new item, the black sandals (which I actually did need to replace), to inspire the look.  I had found this fun top at a resale shop a while ago.  It looks vintage to me, but it's a great, structural, washable modern cotton fabric with some stretch, so it's comfortable, too!  I added my grandmother's refashioned earrings (I think they used to hang from a clip-on earring) for a special touch.  And I even made an attempt at "mod" makeup, with the stronger cat-eye and nude lip (Gavin said I needed lipstick, so I guess he wasn't a fan).  While I may or may not have hit the mod look exactly, it was fun to see how adding one new element to closet items I already owned, along with adjusting my makeup for the night, made for a whole new look.  That's why fashion is fun!
