I even remember when I first saw the dress. It was this past Easter. I was bonding with my boyfriend's sister, who I was meeting for the first time. We were hitting it off pretty well. She was a model and into fashion naturally and seemed happy that I was into fashion too. Unfortunately, I lost her as soon as I showed her the Modcloth homepage. I guess not everyone shares my fashion sense. She thought it was too "hipster-ish" (NOOOOO!) Since I had Modcloth pulled up anyways, I surfed the New Arrivals and there it was. This beauty. I knew I had to make it mine.
I love this dress in person even more. I ordered the size 4 because they were out of 6s and it was a good call. It has plenty of stretch. I just love the shimmery fabric! Also, this was another photo session where I was doing the pictures alone on my tripod. I also forgot to pop the flash up completely. Oopsie. I tried to make it better by sharpening all the pics in PicMonkey but I don't know if that really helped.
Sitting dead pan in front of a camera by yourself is pretty awkward. And so is doing close ups of fabric. You should see the out takes!
Dress - Slant Rhyme Dress - Modcloth - on sale currently for $114.99 (at last check, there was one left in a size 2!!!)
Shoes - Rampage Women's Mariska Pump
Earrings - purchased at the hair shop where my Aunt Susie works
The dress is also available in black, but I'm not sure I dig it as much. The stripes are wider and well... I just like pink better! Plus, this pink is so dreamy. It's kind of cherry coloured and just perfect. The black version looks like it belongs in a Tim Burton film. Not that I have anything against that, just that pink is more my scene.
Overall, I'm so stoked that I went for this dress when I did. I went to Petrunia's website and they only sell to retailers. Plus, they listed their stockists and all they had listed were boutiques! They didn't even list any online retailers. I wouldn't be surprised if Modcloth were the only online store that carries them.
