Somehow or another, the circle of style keeps coming back my way, which makes me very happy. I recently received word from a very fashionable college friend that the very chic & spirited retailer Mod Cloth features a dress that’s called none other than “Style Darling.” So here we are on a very snowy blog day that requires a venture into some familiar territory, The $100 Challenge.
While we’re in the middle of a week of gray skies, I wanted to show this dress, staying true to its sweetness, but also add some surprises. Given the price of this dress, at a cool $61.99, wouldn’t it be something to make an entire stylish outfit with the remaining $38? I love how the simplicity of this dress reminds me of something vintage with a touch of Charlotte York, but the bright tights have a little essence of Carrie Bradshaw. A touch of polka dots makes for a playful collar, the cinched waist allows for a belt with a little gold- just enough metallic so as not to clash with classic silver bangles. A simple foldover coin purse turns into a chic daytime clutch & you can’t forget about those cut-out shooties that are perfect for any time of year. They’re just enough modern for this mod look! This look can be switched up with knee boots & bright leather belt, or a sweet cardigan & cute ballet flats. Thanks Michelle & Happy Styling!
