The Society of Cool!
Don't use the word Modettes ;). Welcome btw.
Are you worried that people might mistake you for a man ;), sorry couldn't resist, I'm only messing, each to there own I say but I've personally never thought the word mod to be male specific.
If you stick around here long enough you'll soon develop you own vision of mod, everyones experience is different, and there's some great posters on here that, like me, you'll learn a lot from.
I was just about say that Ben! LOL! Good call! I've often said that word is a dirty word.
And to The Mo-dettes, Mod was a dirty word. ;-)
Its strange how THAT word has been used so often, When we were running around all the Mod girls took grave exception to being called a Modette. I also don't think it was ever used in the 60s. It seems like it just took off after a band were called The Modettes and people not in the know assumed that all Mod girls were called Modettes.
Yeah Alex. Most girls or women that I know who are or were into the scene would not have been chuffed at being called a modette. They would possibly have assumed that the person saying it did not have a scooby ha ha.
It might be regional. The status of any word, especially slang, is largely regional.
Welcome to the clan Alex!
I do not think anyone should be telling another what to do to much...but as a preference, although this life has a sense of style from some more glamorous days from the past also remember that great cothes are being made ,.. and great music being created now...so I live in today.
There are loads of pointers on here in past forums about where to get clothes, what new music is happening and where mod events and nights are taking place...and even more budding experts! laughs
