Day 3: The Beat Generation, The 60's Lace Mod Dress

Hello, Beat Generation! I woke up feeling inspired by Mod looks and Beat attitude, and I knew instantly that I was going to channel my inner 60's-gal today. This beret is my newest vintage treasure. It was  given to me a month ago, and I have a strong feeling that it will be making a steady appearance in my wardrobe this winter. I'm nearly certain that the topper was hand-knit; I hope you can see it in the photos, but it was patterned to retain the most perfect, tilted, side-slouch. This lace dress is something that's been hanging in my closet for a couple of years now, but that I have never worn. I've seen a few dresses like it on Etsy lately, which was what reminded me of it in the first place. I had originally thought to pair it with a black slip, but am much happier that I went with a flesh-tone slip beneath, causing an illusion-lace look.
