Dressing for the Occassion

If you're like me, the first thing you think after receiving an invitation to a cocktail party or wedding (other than "oh how nice of them to invite us," of course) is "what shall I wear?"

While J.Crew and Nordstrom are always my first stops when shopping for a great dress, I've been longing to find a few new and interesting frocks that take a small step out of my neatly pressed and preppy box.

One day as I was browsing through Facebook, I noticed an advertisement for Modcloth, a vintage inspired retailer offering a unique collection of clothing and accessories. The closest thing in my closet to vintage would be my Audrey Hepburn little black dress and my Jackie O pearls, but I must say that I found several of Modcloth's dresses to be simply stunning.

Here are a few of my favorite finds. If you're looking for
unique and fun attire for your next event, I encourage you to add Modcloth to your shopping list.
