The Mods Vs. The Rockers

In the early British 1960s, the younger culture was basically separated into two hip groups; The Mods- The suit wearing, Italian Vespa riding, proper modernists, and The Rockers- The grungy, hog riding, leather wearing rock and rollers.
These groups didn't exactly get along and caused a few big newsworthy riots.
What are you; A Mod or a Rocker?

 The Rockers




In the end
I'm a Mod for sure.
But both groups looked pretty cool.

  9. It seems like every fashion blogger these days must be a rocker judging by their motorcycle boots and studded everything...but I think I might be a mod. Don't tell!

  10. I'm most def. a rocker, but I will say I love some of the mod stylings. Leather jackets just about sum up why I love that style - and done right, just the way you've worn it - it can be feminine yet badass!

  19. Good day! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it hard to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I'm thinking
    about making my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Appreciate it
