dressed up like a lady: Pretty dress -- spotted!

Pretty dress -- spotted!

I don't know about you, but I get a lot of my daily style inspiration from Modlife -- the official blog of Modcloth, my go-to store for indie/vintage inspired clothing. So you can imagine how I blew an effing gasket when I woke up this morning to find that I was featured as a Style Inspiration on the Modlife Blog! If this is my 15 minutes, I can die happy.

Let's celebrate with a crinoline!
Dress: Vintage via Planetclairevintage
Shoes: Adrienne Vittadini
Bag: vintage via local antique store
Gloves: Vintage via the Getup
Faux pearls: vintage via the Getup


This isn't a vintage crinoline -- in fact, it's brand new. I bought it from a store owned by a friend of mine. She sells dance paraphernalia, which includes a lot of square dancing costumes. I don't know how to do the Texas Two-Step, but this big, white fluffer-nutter makes me want to learn.

 
It's not to late to enter to win an adorable BB Dakota dress! Just visit this post and leave a comment with your name and email before Thursday, June 11th. Sorry, the contest is only available for US residents. Good luck!

  10. Is there a link to your crinoline source online? I am desperate for one (or three) and, while I would prefer vintage, I am desperate enough to go for new!

    thanks!
