I have a slight obsession with whimsical clothes. Seriously, if there an article of clothing that looks slightly retro, like from 1940’s or 1950’s, or something a like nerdy/hip librarian would wear, I’m in! So when I found out ModCloth was having a 25% off sale through August 16, I was totally stoked.
To be honest, I’m pretty simple when it comes to fashion. My closet is trending towards minimalism as I have made a habit of decluttering anything that doesn’t fit me or that I haven’t worn in 6 months or more. And don’t worry, I live in Florida, so weather doesn’t really affect whether I wear something only a few months out of a year. Typically, we are pretty warm, so no need to hoard the heavy sweaters and ski boots.
Nevertheless, I do like to update my wardrobe a few times a year. I mean, even if I tend to stick to the same style, doesn’t mean that every now and then I don’t add something new and since this is my birthday month, I decided to “treat yo self!”. Besides, “fall” and “winter” is coming and the temperature might actually drop into the 80’s here in Miami in the next few months. BRRRR!!!!
Typically I am a jeans kind of girl, but I still like to keep things nice and neat and pair them up with a cute top, like a collared button up, lace patterned blouse or a printed tee. As I was perusing the ModCloth website, the first thing that caught my eye was this cute Cat Knit Sweater. I probably won’t get much wear out of this till December or January, but CATS!!!! For $29.99, I am adding it to the cart and hitting buy. I’m thinking that with a pair of skinny jeans and some ballerina flats, it will look adorable. It got a 3 out of 5 stars on the site, but with only 2 reviews, not too worried. It runs up to a size 4x.
Also, with a cute pair of light blue skinnies or even, white ones, is this adorable pink collared knit top. The color is definitely wearable now in the summer and since I don’t subscribe to any fashion rules that prevent me from wearing anything light after Labor Day, I’m thinking it will still be worn way into the fall/winter/spring. I make the rules up in this house! No reviews on it yet, but for $24.99, I’m thinking I am willing to give it a go, so in the cart it goes.
Although I work from home, I do occasionally have to go into the office and to meetings, so I am thinking about this Navy A-line dress with bow details. I have it in my cart, but I am still hedging and haven’t purchased it yet. At $79.99, it’s a little steep for me, but does this not scream nerdy librarian from the 1950’s? I am thinking that this dress with my black patent leather heels with the cute ruffle and bow on the front were meant for each other.
I don’t just love ModCloth for the clothes. I actually get a kick out of surfing their website and finding some off the walls items. Life is short, so why not enjoy it, right? For that reason, I give you some random shit that I found funny and cute. I hope they make your day and if you do happen to buy one, please send me a pic. I’ll make sure to update you guys on any wacky purchases as well.
Also, don’t be surprised if a lot of these revolve around cats. I have an unhealthy obsession with the feline sort.
