ModCloth.com. I simply adore their dresses, and somehow I can just sit in front of my computer for days at a time picturing myself in the trendy duds the site has for sale.
A recent fave of mine is this amazingly gorgeous VIP Thicket Dress ($79.99). It combines so many awesome things in such a unique way. What's not to love?!
The cut of the dress itself is quite feminine and flattering to most body types. It's a simple strapless, a-line dress that nips in and ties at the natural waistline (hint: without a doubt, this is most often the smallest part on every lady's bod, so highlighting it is always a good idea). Since the bow belt draws the eye to your tiniest spot, and the skirt of the dress flows out nicely from there, the result is ultra beautiful and super flattering. Even if the dress was a solid color, I'd be in love with it and highly recommend it to everyone in the world.
BUT the pattern is supa-fly.
Since the dress itself is so soft and ladylike, the bad-ass skulls, edgy dark roses, and thorny vines are very unexpected. The pattern is actually brilliant because at first glance, you don't really notice the skulls or how rocker-chic it really is--it just looks like a pretty floral design. But when you take a minute to check it out, you slowly start to notice just how much it rocks!
Everything aside, the absolute best thing about my new favorite dress is how versatile it is. It's dressy enough to wear with a dressy cardigan and strappy sandals for an evening out, but can also be dressed down with a pair of Converse sneakers and a cool studded black moto jacket. I can't really think of an occasion when this dress would be unacceptable to wear. Maybe not the best choice for a funeral...? But hey, even then it might be good for an awkward laugh.
I think that everyone absolutely needs to own this dress. Especially me [hint, hint, anyone out there who wants to spend lots of money on me]! $80 is actually fairly reasonable for a great quality, fabulously unique dress like this. I can't really see it going out of style anytime soon, and it's virtually seasonless. Just be sure to wear it with a jacket and leggings or tights when it gets chilly out.
While you're on the site, take some time to explore some of the other dresses ModCloth has to offer. Trust me--you'll fall in love with nearly everything on there!
Happy shopping, ladies!!
