Chances are, you've seen this Modcloth dress floating around the Internet before now. I've seen it on Modcloth's website over the years whenever it comes back into stock, and I've seen it some of my favorite bloggers. Usually, this would lead me to not want a piece in an effort to be unique. However, for the first time possibly ever, I wanted that item that everyone else had.
I think most people have a mental list of items they want to get their hands on. Over the years, mine has gone from very specific (those Dolce Vita booties that I never got my hands on) to more classic pieces (a striped shirt, a denim jacket, cream oxfords, etc.). This past summer, there was something about a red dress that just sounded appealing. I hunted for the perfect one, but none of them seemed quite was I looking for. Then, after receiving that Modcloth gift card for my birthday (along with some store credit I had been saving), I remembered that this gem existed. Not only did it have the vibrant shade of red and A-line skirt I had been hoping for, but the collar was unbeatable.
This is one of those dresses that I know I'll wear to death and be able to style countless ways, so I wanted to keep it simple for this set of pictures. I already wore it differently when I went to lunch with two of my close friends last week and I'm convinced that the possibilities are endless.
By the way, I should add that I'm pretending to talk to my 3-year-old nephew, Jackson, on the phone in that first picture. So in case anyone thought I was alone in the fake telephone holding, rest assured, there was a child with me. (I say that like I wouldn't do that if he wasn't there. I'm so awkward when taking pictures so I need to entertain myself with silly poses sometimes.)
What pieces are on your list of must-haves at the moment?
