Coat Check w/ Modcloth
It’s no secret that i’m a big, giant, colossal, crazy-in-love fan when it comes to the bubbly brand Modcloth
(need proof? and have an hour to kill? take a peek at all my featured posts
)! To say I’m addicted, would be an vast understatement! They are the perfect blend of classic and quirk, whimsy and wonder, trendy with a twist and I am just beyond obsessed. So when I was received an invitation to participate in their current blogger contest, I jumped for joy … and today I’m sharing my entry!
is as cute as a button, althought it doesn’t have any, but it does feature rich toggles, the perfect sized pockets and darling trim that pops! Toss it over flannel for an afternoon picking pinecones or pair it with a LRD (little red dress) for sunday brunch with the girls… the coat is so versatile it can work for any gal or any occasion.
assigned me this amazingly adorable piece
from their site, and asked me to create a look featuring that item. But being the over-acheieving mod-enthusit I am … I created three over-the-top outfits to go under this Call of the Style coat :]
The Voracious Reader
This girl may always have her nose in a good book, but is still well read when it comes to style! She cares about comfort but does so with a quirky flair by layering a printed plaid shirt under a graphic tee before slipping into colored skinnies, a low oxford heel and finishing the look with fun gloves and earth tone accessories!
This stylish jet-setter is always on the go … and always to the most fabulous places (even if they are around the corner) She’ll spontaneously skip town for the weekend, play hooky to spend the afternoon at her favorite museum and hike with her pug on sunday mornings, even though she usually ends up carrying the little guy (he get’s tired). When this weekend explorer finds herself stuck in the same zip code, she doesn’t fret by simply escapes with perpetual day dreams of carefree days in colorful Capri and Autumn or evenings on the east coast.
The Chic Geek
Guys make passes at girls who wear glasses! Under this girl’s darling coat you’ll find an adorkable sense of style. She pairs high socks, lace up shoes and animal prints (no, not the always trendy leopard print, but actual animal prints) in the chicest way! She mixes her matches and pairs patterns like a pro, but also plays with proportion without scarfing her silhouette by slimming her waist with a big brown belt. Her finishing piece? a fox scarf to prove nerds are hot and well, because why not?
