She's a Mod yeah yeah!

The minute I saw City Chic's latest collection 'Mod' The Mint Chicks cover of  'She's a Mod' blasted in my head. Mod inspired fashion is one of my favorite styles of Fashion. I adore the plain black and white palettes, the neck lines and the gorgeous dresses. When I think about Mod icons Debbie Harry (Blondie) and Twiggy always come straight to my head, Twiggy was a front runner in the Mod scene and is now a Fashion icon. City Chic have modernized the Mod look and adapted it to suit our curvier figures. When the collection was released I noticed there were a few fans who were concerned about the lack of colour, I personally love it, I LOVE black and to me I use my all black outfits as a blank canvas and accessorize with coloured accessories or make up. These are a few of my must have Mod items so far;

Ice Skater Dress - My jaw hit the floor when I saw this dress, to say that I am in love is a major understatement. I  love the sleeves, the length, the little belt, to me it's the perfect Black Dress. It can be worn with low heeled peep toe shoes as an office dress or accessorized for the perfect night out, I would wear it with my red peep toe wedges, red nails and red lipstick and I would wear my hair out and back comb the back to give me a real Mod vibe. If you wanted to brighten up the dress you could always change the belt for a coloured one, even a thicker waist belt, add a long coloured necklace and paint your nails to match a bold lipstick. I need to make this dress mine!

Miss Graduate Jacket - This Blazer is stunning! The cut is gorgeous and I adore the white detail. I know it's hard to think about Jackets in the current heat but come Winter this would become a wardrobe staple! Extremely versatile, again it could be worn as office wear or with your favourite party dress, even as a warm cover up for your Summer Maxi dress.

Rouched Front Basic Top - Another wardrobe staple, for me this top is a must have! Currently available in three colours it's the perfect top. The 3/4 Sleeves are a great length and it can be worn with jeans, shorts, under a sleeve less dress, or with high waisted skirts, they are also thin enough to wear under layers in Winter.

I love City Chic's latest collection, there are many more items on my 'wish list' but these are my top three favourites so far.

Don't forget there are plenty of Sale items left online and in store for a limited time. My favourite item I picked up was the Fringed Kimono (a bargain for $20). Make sure you share your sale bargains as well as your own Mod looks on the facebook page.

Until next time,
