More Collars, Please


Another day, another Peter Pan collar. This was part of my Modcloth Cabin Fever sale purchase last month and it's my favorite item of the bunch. It's the only item I paid more than $10 for (though not by much) and it was absolutely worth it. Sure, the shape is slightly unflattering if you catch it at the wrong angle, but I'm willing to see past that. Fun fact: the reviews for this dress all made a point to say it had a small head hole. I have no problem with it, so I've come to the conclusion that there are multiple Modcloth customers with giant heads. It's the only explanation.

In exciting news of the week, I'll be going to Chicago for another journalism conference this Thursday-Saturday. I won't leave you hanging though, I have a couple of great guest posts lined up for you. I swear these things only happen two times a year, but I get so excited every time they do. I get to attend cool sessions with talented journalists, get the chance to win some awards this time (fingers crossed!), and I get a good amount of free time in the city. Did I mention that the entire trip is paid for by the school, including an envelope full of cash for food? I'll definitely be hitting up the Urban Outfitters outlet I visited with Marlen and Katie last time I was there, you can bet I won't let anymore $3 dresses pass me by. I'm not sure if I'll have time for any meetups this trip, but if there any other Chicago bloggers around, let me know!







And speaking of giveaways, Leah of We Live Upstairs is giving away $25 to Anthropologie! I'm conflicted because I want to tell you all to visit her fantastic blog, but I also really want to win it myself. So if you could all just visit and follow her, but let me win, I'd appreciate it. (All jokes aside, folks, enter it! It's Anthro; why wouldn't you?)

  2. Multiple Modcloth customers with giant heads...oh Elana, you know how to make me laugh! xD Hahaha, that MUST be the obvious conclusion here, isn't it?
    Anyway, I always love seeing how you wear your peter pan collars - they just suit your style so perfectly. This dress is seriously adorable too. I've got to keep a better eye out for these Modcloth sales!

  3. Bahaha - giant heads! It reminds me of this Seinfeld episode with Elaine and how she was described as the lady with the big head.

    I could possibly never have enough peter pan collars. Naturally I ADORE this dress! Have fun in Chicago Elana!

  7. the dress is really really cute. I feel sad now that I didn't buy anything during the cabin fever sale because I got scared away by reading the reviews on all the itmes I sort of liked. Next time around I will be more courageous and just get the stuff and see for myself.

  11. Girl you just make me smile every time I come to your blog lately! This dress is darling on you and what a fantastic color for you. Did I tell you that Modcloth messed up my order and so I didn't end up getting my dress from the cabin fever sale? Siiiigh, so I am still Modcloth-less in my closet. Oh well. ALSO I got your blue frock in the mail yesterday and I pretty much died over how cute it is. Can't wait to wear it.
    Have fun at your conference darling!

  19. There is NOTHING better than the Modcloth cabin fever sales. I got 3 things for under $30! I love this dress! Wish I'd seen this one.

  20. Man, you found some awesome items through that modcloth sale! Any dress with a peter pan collar is automatically adorable, those collars are just too much fun. I really, really like this mixture of colors, the soft beige with the teal is such a pretty color combination and I love how you wore those boots with this pretty dress!

  21. It's a beautiful dress, and I see what you mean about the shape; a fuller skirt would be better, but it's still very pretty. I particularly like the colours :)
