Loving Right Now: ModCloth

A year or so ago, I discovered ModCloth, an online store. I've spent hours browsing their site- they always have plenty of cute, unique, vintage-inspired dresses (and blouses, skirts, and home accessories) that look to be great quality, at very reasonable prices-most of the things on the site are under $100. The best part about ModCloth? They don't stock thousands of the same items- I've been on the site, gone back the next day to order things, and they are out of stock. Now, this is always a bummer, but the great thing about a small inventory is when I order something, I know I will be the only person at a party with that outfit! Here are three of my favorite pieces on the site right now to wear now, and into fall, too.

First, the Light Speed Style dress. I love the button detailing, and the tiny little polka dots, too. In the dog days of summer, I would wear this with wooden wedges, and a belt. In the fall, I'd wear it with my favorite Frye riding boots, an army jacket, and tights. Either way, it would make a great addition to my wardrobe, and for $48, it is a steal, to boot.

Next, the Metamorphosis dress, which is $55. I'm digging the draping on this pick- it makes a simple jersey dress so much more interesting, while still keeping it lightweight for summer. I would wear flat black gladiator sandals and an interesting cuff bracelet in summertime. When the weather cools down, I'd pair this dress with black opaque tights, and black over-the-knee leather boots.

Finally, the Zag You're It dress, coming in right at $50. I like how this dress looks like it is a separate skirt and top, but since it is actually one piece, I wouldn't have to worry about keeping my shirt tucked in! During sweltering summer, I would pair this with simple gold flat sandals and possibly red lipstick. This winter, I'd slip on tights underneath, black ballet flats on my feet, and my favorite leather jacket over to keep me plenty warm in the mild Arizona winter.


  1. Love ModCloth! I stumbled across their site last year. They always have drool-worthy stuff. I haven't been on there in a few months (tsk, tsk) so I'll have to check them out.

  2. A former student clued me in to ModCloth this summer, and I think I might try to get my 40th birthday dress there. It's coming up soon! Help!

  3. Patricia- I'd be happy to help! I really don't think you can go wrong with Mod Cloth though!
