I have always been a fan of Modcloth! Who's with me?? I love Modcloth for a number of reasons. One being, look at that dress!! It's so beautiful and it's the epitome of "lady-like." They always have unique, trendy, classic, and adorable options and a wide variety of styles to chose from, not to mention, they post new styles almost every day!
I love this dress (above) because it's extremely feminine and the style is super flattering on just about everybody! My opinion, is that a V-neck compliments every body type and the floral pattern is just perfect enough to add interest to this simple, girly ensemble. Even better, this particular dress comes in sizes 0-24! This is also another reason why I love Modcloth. There's options for everyone and all of the sizes are in together, as one; they execute their plus size pieces so well!
As the dress as my centerpiece, I stuck with the "lady-like" theme because I felt like it was fitting. I'm inspired by women of the past and always have been! Some of my favorites include Audrey Hepburn, Amelia Earhart, Lucille Ball, Jackie O, Princess Diana, and many others. There's something to be said about how these women carried themselves, including what they wore. It's SO intriguing to me to gather inspiration and ideas from history!
I included all of my favorite elements that scream "I'm a lady!" I kept the jewelry minimum and not too flashy, and the pearls on this necklace were just the right amount! Aren't these heels to die for!? Every woman deserves a good pair of adorable heels; I chose these because I fell in love with the blush pink color and ankle strap. I wanted to mix prints a little to add interest, so I chose the polka dot version of this bag and now I want it for myself! It's the cutest and a good size to hold all your papers, folders, laptop, snacks and whatever else a little lady might need for the day! I added simple accessories like the hat, sunglasses, and watch to keep the focus on the dress, all of which are beautiful and can be worn many other ways as well. The round sunglasses are so "retro!" Lastly, what would a lady-like outfit be without lace? This lace cardigan adds depth, layers and finishes off the whole look.
Don't you want to go buy all of these pieces right now?! I know online shopping can sometimes be scary, but that's another awesome thing about Modcloth; they make returns and exchanges super easy and stress free! Trust me, I've done it more times then I can count and their always so fast and their customer service is outstanding. Some of my other favorite Modcloth dresses for the summer are the It's Meant to Bead Dress, Air of Adorable Dress in Balloons, White Haute Cocoa Dress, Playwright Date Dress in Chambray, High Socie-tea Dress in Floral, and the Breakfast and Bliss Dress. So many options to find one that's unique to your style!
