Last week, I got an email from the lovely Amy Hirt, a stylist over at Modcloth
– she asked if I would be interested in participating in their Uniquely You campaign by styling an ensemble around a particular ModCloth item. I was absolutely
thrilled to be invited, and immediately said yes. In case you haven’t heard of Modcloth, they are a retro-inspired, online clothing company that has adorable clothes, accessories and even home goods. If you’ve read my Fashion Friday posts in the past, then you’ll be familiar with some of their products- I love their stuff! In fact, we bought my mom a pair of leather sandals
(only available in cream now) from Modcloth for Mother’s Day that she loves. They are a bit unusual and are great because they have a little bit of a heel and a strap in the back- two things that aren’t normally on cute sandals. Those details make them adorable and
All of the their clothes are so fun and totally my style. My personal style tends to be mostly classic cuts with unusual and fun details, and that fits in with Modcloth’s clothes completely.
I particularly love their dresses- as someone who wears a lot
of dresses, I really appreciate their amazing selection. Here are just a few of the Modcloth dresses that I’m currently crushing on:
Aren’t those adorable? Because I love Modcloth’s dresses so much, I was super excited to find out that Modcloth wanted me to design an ensemble around the Abiding Beauty Dress
– a classic, simple dress that would make for a great closet staple. The leather belt that comes with the dress is nearly identical to a belt that I own, and the dress itself is something that I would’ve picked out on my own also. I had so much fun picking out different Modcloth accessories and shoes to go with the dress.
The knit fabric that the dress is made out of looks so comfortable- it got me thinking of all the places I would want to wear it. My first thought was that it would be a perfect travel dress- versatile, easily pack-able, and above all, comfortable. That was my jumping off point for creating my outfit- the finished product is something that I could absolutely see myself wearing.
So, here’s my Modcloth Uniquely You ensemble!
I can easily imagine wearing this outfit for exploring during a trip- all of the items are versatile and could work with so many different outfits.
Visiting Italy (and all of Europe actually!) is an absolute dream of mine, and this outfit would be exactly what I’d want to wear for a trip like that! It’s my Italy Dreamin’ outfit I suppose 😉
I used Polyvore
to create both of these style sets- it was my first time using Polyvore and I had a lot of fun with it. If you want to check out my profile, or follow me, here’s the link
I hope you enjoyed my outfit for Modcloth! I had a great time putting it together!
