Mad For Mod

How retro-fabulous is the mod styling in this ad campaign for French label Paule Ka!  And, how brilliant of Paule Ka to use Acapulco as the back drop here!  These images remind me so much of photos I’ve seen of my parents on their honeymoon, a time in history that is literally just before my own memory.  Note to my mother: really wishing you would’ve saved some of your adorable ensembles from back in the day.  Fortunately, Paul Ka’s clothes are as cute as their ads.  Seriously crushing on the entire Spring collection…

    Wow, I love this line! I especially love the sweaters with the stripes at the sleeves and waist and the bow at the neck. It's too bad they don't seem to be sold in the states.

  4. Such fun! I love how the photographer created this slightly overexposed feel, just like those old cameras did, it's as if you can feel the sunshine radiating out…

  9. Okay, I wish I had styled this myself – it's beyond. So funny because I was JUST saying to my mom and grandmother yesterday while we were looking at old pics that I wish they had saved some of their swingy mod dresses etc. Just a reminder to save everything – it always comes back!

  15. Always been drawn to this look..so chic and timeless. Has a "Milly vibe" going which is a line I love. How great is that first dress, the sweaters with bow and the color blocking. Fabulous! Plus anything looks better when its shot in beautiful sunny Acapulco!

  16. I remember wearing one of my mom's suede mini-skirts for Halloween one year….I wonder where it is these days (although it probably wouldn't fit over my toe at this point!) I think the fashion of that era was so fun….
