In keeping with my recent "non-sewing related posts", ModCloth asked me if I wanted to join in on their Uniquely You campaign, in which they send a picture of an item to me, and I digitally style it using other items from ModCloth using Polyvore.
Now. I know what you're thinking. No, I don't have a primarily style-centric blog. And no I get no monetary or clothing-etary gain from this.
What do I get? I get to virtually play dress up and possibly get more followers. Possibly. And that inflates my ego - and we all know I'm here for the online celebrity status! (Not really. But kinda really)
WALL OF TEXT ASIDE.
ModCloth sent me the Vivacious and Vibrant dress in Noir (available up to 4X!) to put into an outfit!
I'm not going to lie, this dress didn't grab me. The neckline is gorgeous and has the slight 40s flair I enjoy, but it's just not quite my style, and I'm not a fan of the contrast waist. To hide that, I paired it with the 'The Dream of the crop' cardigan and black 'Leaf for the Day' belt - a cropped cardi/belt combo I'd say is very me, with the 'Preserves Purveyor' necklace to exhibit my fondness of cherries. (It's a kitsch problem)
The length of the Vivacious and Vibrant dress is shorter than I would really wear it - although it would be a perfect length for showing off the details on the 'Bowed Over' tights, and with a good pair of (slightly sensible/ comfy shoes because I'm a shoe wuss) shoes and a cute handbag, the job is done, you have a cute little retro-style outfit and which is quite uniquely me!
Make sure to check out all of the adorable dresses ModCloth has to offer here.
Thank you ModCloth for getting in touch and giving me something out of my comfort zone - and for giving me a kick to get a Polyvore (seriously guys it's great fun).
Enjoy the rest of your week, guys!
