Mod is the look and it's here to stay. Every season, like it or not, designers are in awe of *mod*; it can be inclined in summer wear to fall fashions, from shift dresses to peacoats. You can't avoid it's ever-trendiness, and who could blame you? The *mod* was a look created and defined in the mid-'60s. It covered a wide variety of styles, but it commonly included mini dresses, geometric patterns, black and whites, mary janes, pattern stockings, bright flashy colors, go-go boots and contrast. I am very intrigued by fashion in general, so when I dipped into my usual studies of what the new trends are for this season, I was delighted to see MOD back on the runways. But if you are on a budget like me, you know it's difficult to find designer looking clothes for affordable prices. That's why I have made it my mission to bring unto you the INNEST of the In, stylest of the styles, and cheapest of designer names available. I guarentee that all products you will find on this page will ALWAYS be under $200 - which seems like a lot, but when you lay eyes upon these gorgeous pieces and their label, you'll dig it. I've searched long and hard to bring you only the cutest of this season's selection - and when it comes to fashion, I'm always up to date on what the buzz is. Trust me, I've done my homework! Through watching runway shows, visiting designer web-sites such as StellaMcCartney.com and Chanel.com, and studying the fashion bibles like Elle and Vogue, I can tell you what *to* wear and what *not* to wear. So let's see what this season has to offer...

*Striped Short Sleeved Top* ~ This candy cane classic has a sailor girl twist - picture cute triangular head scarves, with big white framed glasses on a boat dock, waving away your sailor sweetheart. With a cute built-in belt, who could resist?
Price: $26


*White Tie-Up Bustier* ~ This Marilyn Monroe inspired bustier is sexy, while at the same time, endearingly classy. It's feminine neckline and detailed embroidery give it a soft, sultry touch of glam. I think I'm in love.
Price: $62


*Wide-Brim Camel Hat* ~ Block out the sun, and bring on the fun, wearing this Pattie Boydesque top hat. Enough to jazz up the simplest of out-fits (or could even match sweetly with the bustier above!).
Price: $19


*Scarf Jeans* ~ Hippie hippie chic! Here's as close to authentic hippie wear as you're going to find, not coming from a second-hand store. The pale hues make it fresh and seasonal, plus, easy to pair up with a trendy peasant blouse. For the fashion queen in you.

*Pinstriped Jeans* ~ A personal favorite of mine, pinstriped jeans are slimming *and* uber trendy. These pair have a little bit of fading to them, with a tie waste and bootleg cut. If you're looking for an easy mix-and-match pair of jeans, this versatile style is just for you!
Price: $39


*Paisley Blouse* ~ This one reminds me of something straight out of Apple Boutique. It has a colorful pattern and flowy fabric. A total attention grabber!
