MOD Monday

Remember the moderately popular t.v. show of the late 60's produced by Aaron Spelling called 'The Mod Squad'?  It was a police drama about three young hip crime fighters that portrayed a multicultural society and dealt with issues such as racism and drugs.

From this show, spawned a pop culture mod fashion icon named Peggy Lipton, an American born actress who played Julie Barnes on the series.  Prior to getting the acting gig, Lipton signed with the Ford Modeling Agency & was successful in that career for print modeling but not so much in regards to making it on the cover of any popular fashion mag.

She was coming in at the tail end of the mod era that was flowing towards the style of the hipster chic & she fit in perfectly with her center parted blond hair, peasant blouses, floppy hats, scarves, bell bottoms & flower power.  She was the perfect haute couture hippie who's vintage style continued to reign well on into the 21st century.

Here are some ideas on how you can put together our own modern take on the vintage hip style...

Random Fact:
Actress Rashida Jones is the daughter of Peggy Lipton and music mogul Quincy Jones.
