ModCloth began as a vintage clothing site, but has now evolved into a mix of new retro indie clothing and vintage. It’s possible I was sold on this site when looking at the “about us” section, which shows a picture of the owners holding their pug. Also, on their blog there is A LOT of pug talk. If you follow me on Twitter you know I love my PUG. Beyond all the pug talk ModCloth has some really beautiful designs which would be lovely for a rehearsal dinner or shower. I love finding companies that show their fun side!

I have black velvet pads all over the studio with messily arranged sparkly things, most are finished, a few are unfinished, and some just have pieced together ideas- thus, they are my notebooks. I began organizing all the new designs today for a photo shoot I’m planning next week and I am a bit overwhelmed! Recently we got a new computer that doesn’t support the Canon digital software I use to take photos with, so…a lot of new designs have accumulated. Trust, it was an ugly mess which involved a few tears, and a determined and super smart hubby. We’re back on track now and I can’t wait to have all the new pieces up online soon. The pieces shown above are remnants of the “notebooks”. They are new and not available online yet, but as usual if you see something you like just let me know.
In other news I am super excited about our new campaign which will go up on Style Me Pretty in February. Speaking of…did anyone happen to see the guest post by erin ever after on Style Me Pretty today? I was floored by the emerald Gucci dress the bride wore in her Mexican wedding. Just so gorgeous, really…I love when fashion collides so well with weddings!
Have a great weekend!
Fill in the blank cards are just about the sweetest idea ever! I love the simple design of the cards which could be used for Valentine’s Day of course, but wouldn’t it be lovely to give one to your fiance, say once a month, in the months leading up to your wedding?! I want to get the mini Valentines at the bottom for my son…I love the one that say “You are my Sunshine”. Cards by Little Aviary. So sweet…
I’m a fan of simplicity when it comes to award show fashion. Much of the fashion is so overdone that any underlying beauty gets lost. Not so with the presence of Sandra Bullock and Jennifer Aniston at last nights 2010 Golden Globes. Sandra Bullock’s Bottega Venetta rich purple gown was perfect against her skin tone and accented simply with jewels by Lorraine Schwartz. You can see a hint of her Casadei signature 3504 Triple Platform pumps peeking through at the bottom. So lovely! Jennifer Aniston was absolutely stunning in Valentino couture, Versace shoes (I love the black toe polish), and Fred Leighton jewels. An important thing about these two women is that they both seem comfortable with themselves and that in itself is beautiful. Well done, ladies!
