If you follow me on Twitter, you know I recently went through a major hair color change--my dark brown pixie is now a gray/silver-white (speeding along a process that was already naturally occurring). For some reason, this has made me want to change my wardrobe. Well, "some reason" is probably the photo below.

Now I want a wardrobe of mod A-line dresses in dark, austere colors. And Ray-Bans. Unfortunately, I seem to have a closet full of 1940s and 1950s floral frocks...and not a lot of money to shop with. Luckily, in my line of work, I can (sort of) patiently shop and hope to find just what I want in my size. And I *do* have a couple 1960s dresses in my closet that I've held on to that fit the bill.
But maybe this inclination toward mod, austerity, and A-line was already in my brain! Pre-haircut, I found myself really drawn to these looks from Irish designer J.W. Anderson.

And along with that gorgeous Marimekko dress at the top of this post, I found these on Etsy:

The new hair.
