Look of the Week: Tailored with lace

I have some fantastic news I've been sitting on for a little bit; I wanted to wait until I had these photos ready before making the announcement here. I'm very honoured to be one of this year's new Modcloth Style Ambassadors! If you haven't come across it already, Modcloth is a fantastic site for adorable vintage and retro clothing, accessories, decor and other little surprises. They have really created their own community surrounding the site, and you can get involved in so many ways! My most recent purchase on their site was a surprise bag, worth anywhere between $19.99 and $249.99! And it only costs $15! I'm very excited to recieve mine in the mail :) the anticipation is part of the fun.

So in recognition of joining the Modcloth Street Team, I thought I would do a post with a dress I bought from them last year. It was part of their Cabin Fever sale, and I got an amazing deal on two dresses, including this one. I thought I would style this one along with the cute little old-fashioned booties I got while thrifting during our school Reading Break. I got them for $12, and they've never been worn! I like how I feel a bit tailored and business-y in this outfit, but the volumous lacey skirt gives it that oomph of girly that is OH so necessary :) Finishing the look off with a cameo neckalace is the perfect accessory.

I'd like to think of this as a bit of an ode to three-piece suits...because I think every guy should own one. I've always been a fan of the 1920's, and the tailored suits they wore (and we still see sometimes) are just so dapper and handsome.

And keep your eyes peeled this week, as I will also be posting that makeup tutorial I mentioned a little while ago. You can also keep looking back here for more Modcloth updates, where I'll let you know about upcoming specials. It's great to be working with a company that thrives so much on vintage and retro inspiration. If you haven't already, check out their website. I'll guarantee you'll be hooked like I am :) If you love them too, what's your current wish list?

  1. What a pretty and feminine outfit! LOOVE the shoes!

  2. Brilla, I have just discovered your blog and I’m so happy I did, because I absolutely love it! Your style is awesome :) . I also like Modcloth a lot, but shipping to Spain is quite expensive, so that doesn't really encourage me to buy there :( . Anyway, you’ve got a new follower!
