When I think of mod, I think of Pucci scarves, a-line minidresses, graphic prints, lots of black and white, and of course Twiggy, the iconic model of the era. Grace Coddington, the famous fashion editor, was also a model during the London "youth-quake", which she wrote about in her memoir, Grace. I'd have to double-check, but I remember her saying in the book that she came up with the spiky spider eyelash look seen here on Twiggy.

Most of these elements translate seamlessly to today's fashion, and in fact, mod seems to be a "trend" every other year. This year is one of those years, and you can find lots of shift dresses and low chunky heels in stores. 

What do you think? Is mod your style?
