We’re going to start another little section where we show our love for other bloggers we adore.
Lets start by introducing the lovely Michelle from Mod Fox, a 1960s inspired and vintage fashion blog.
There is no denying her blog has the vintage inspiration she claims, this was definitely the drawing point for me when I started reading her blog. Also she has a goat named Brownie which is AWESOME, end of story! 😀
I sent Michelle an email which had some general questions about her and her style, this is what she had to say…
I would describe my personal style as …My style is edgy, romantic 1960s mod girl.
Style Icon/s? My biggest style icons are Edie Sedgwick, the 60s Warhol factory girl, and Annie Monroe, the gorgeous and talented modern mod.
Just going to jump in here for a moment and tell you a little about Edie Sedgwick. I’ll be honest I had not heard of her before Michelle mentioned her and went off to do some research! (Wiki helped me out with this one!)
Edith Minturn “Edie” Sedgwick was born on April 20, 1943 but sadly passed away on November 16, 1971 due to a combination of alcohol and drugs. The coroner ruled Sedgwick’s death as “undetermined/accident/suicide.”
She was an American actress, socialite, fashion model and heiress. She is best known for being one of Andy Warhol’s superstars. Sedgwick became known as “The Girl of the Year” in 1965 after starring in several of Warhol’s short films in the 1960s. She was dubbed an “It Girl”, while Vogue magazine also named her a “Youthquaker“. Edie was also often featured on fashion magazine covers such as Vogue, as well as the gorgeous Twiggy.
See, Michelle definitely gets her inspiration from the 60s 😉
Items I can’t live without? Some items I cannot live without would be my black over the knee socks and my liquid eyeliner to create my 60s winged eye makeup!
Favourite places to shop? I shop at a lot of typical places such as H&M and forever 21, but I also love local thrift and vintage shops. Occasionally there is a vintage expo at a nearby city, which has some amazing quality 60s pieces.
Fashion do’s/ don’ts? Do mix vintage with modern pieces to create a look of your own and whatever you wear DO make sure you have enough confidence in yourself to know that you look amazing!
Don’t go anywhere without putting your best face forward. You never know what kind of surprise opportunities are out there that you will need to look and feel your best for!
So there you have it, a little look into the vintage world of Michelle over at Mod Fox.
Michelle has also given me permission to use any of her photos but I’m only going to post a handful because I want you to head over to her blog and discover her beauty for yourself.
I believe some or a lot of Michelle’s photographs are captured by the talented Peter Picchi, so this is just me giving Peter his credit where extremely deserved!
I hope you have enjoyed today’s Blog Feature, as much as I have enjoyed writing up this post.
And a HUGE thank you to Michelle for allowing us to do a post on her. Thank you for answering our questions, you were very helpful and extremely wonderful!
