So, each time I get paid I treat myself to a thing or two. Sometimes furniture, sometimes a dress, sometimes a bouquet of flowers. This time around I decided to purchase a few clothing items I had been eyeing for a bit. I am very excited to have them arrive in the mail.
The first dress and cloche hat are from ModCloth, a by now, well known store for vintage styled pieces and quirky items. The dress was on sale, cutting the price in half, which is always great. I adore the unique neckline which does give it a bit of interest and a old time feel. Its actually longer than it appears as well, which I prefer.
Now the hat. This hat might be my favorite of this bunch. Its a cloche hat, very Peaky Blinders. I’m not one for hats but I couldn’t resist the style, the split and bow in the back, and the form of this hat offers good shade. Something with function as well as flare is always better. It was sold out when I decided to purchase it but ModCloth, lovely site that it is, gives you a chance to tell them you are interested and if enough people do, an out of stock item comes back ! Apparently I’m not the only one smitten with this accessory because it didn’t take long to be able to click the “add to cart” button again.
The second dress and last item is from a site I just recently discovered. This clothing site goes by the name & Other Stories. The lineup accommodates my personal taste almost perfectly. To get an idea its like a mix of Reformation + Cos. Also, the prices aren’t as high. Given that said, this dress was actually the most expensive at just shy of $100. However, a dress is an investment piece and something as classic as this will be staying with me as long as I fit into it, haha ! I absolutely cant get enough of dresses with bow ties on the straps. Very, Audrey Hepburn circa Sabrina. Again, a longer dress that helps elongate my 5’2 frame. I was actually quite early with this piece, dealing with a “coming soon” wait, but by the time I got mine there were only a few in black and my size so, good thing I kept y eye out I suppose !
Anyway, the anticipation for the arrival of these three is tough but I cant wait to wear these throughout the summer and just add them to my newly refined and growing wardrobe ! Check out the sites i mentioned for yourself. Also, you can expect posts of the like every so often as I love fashion just like the next fellow.
