fullhaton2_FotorreduxCheck out the title of this post–I don’t think there’s a better way to describe this skirt. It’s the same one from Day 1 of the challenge. Sometimes it’s a petticoat, others it’s the star of the show. The skirt isn’t the only garment I’m wearing today that can do double duty. See my top? It’s really a dress. The bottom half is a no-fuss, a-line silhouette, perfect for layering without adding too much extra bulk. Who wants that under a skirt that already super full? You just might see this rest of this dress in all of its streamlined glory in a future outfit post.

Holy alarm clock, Batman! I recently figured out the best time to take outfit pics is early in the morning. That’s when the light is best, and the heat and, ahem, sweat is not as much of an issue. I’m not an early bird by any stretch of the imagination, having to bounce between early and late shifts at my last job, but it felt great yesterday to wake up and get so much accomplished even before lunch time, I think I may just make this a lasting habit.

I bought this dress back in the spring, and I never did a proper outfit post wearing it, although I’ve worn it out and about several times. It’s so stretchy! I picked my necklace and shoes based on the color of the contrast stitching in the dress. I love the way the coral tones match.

July Modcloth Haul

July 23, 2014 — 4 Comments

When I began this little blogging adventure, I thought I’d be sharing my own static ideas about style and fashion. I had no idea through blogging, shopping new places, and following other bloggers that my style would change, and I couldn’t be happier! While my jeans and leggings aren’t quite a thing of the past, I’m now more often choosing dresses, dresses, and more dresses! Blame it on seeing all of the fabulous dress-wearing ladies on blogs and on Instagram, having a better idea of where cute, retro dresses are available in my size, or trying to deal in the hot Louisiana weather. Needless to say, when Modcloth announced their 50% off sale, I was all about it. I was also notified that many of my wishlist items were part of the sale. It was so nice, I had to order twice! Check out the following video showing all the great clothes I scored for half-price:

The good news is the sale is still going on. The bad news is that certain items are going out of stock or are now only available in certain sizes. Do you recognize a couple of the dresses? It’s because I featured them in my Poppy Picks post. Well, they’re mine now! Hooray!

Here are links to the items I featured on the video:

L-R ONE TWO THREE FOUR

Order #1: L-R: ONE// TWO// THREE// FOUR

Order #2: L-R: ONE//TWO//THREE

Order #2: L-R: ONE//TWO//THREE

I’ve already starting taking outfit pics in some of these garments, and I can’t wait to show them off. I’m also excited about how some of these pieces will transition from summer to fall. I have a million ideas for that romper!

What was the last time you scored big on a great sale? I’d love to hear about it in the comments! Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my video. P.S. There are new and exciting things coming soon to the blog, so stay tuned! See ya next time!
