I have a soft spot for old things.
(not the ripped up, green moldy kind)
I love the design, detailing and character of vintage clothing but of course shopping vintage is a tricky business. It’s hard to find them in good condition and sometimes they are even more expensive than new clothes.
During my web browsing I’ve come across this website many times and when I finally curiously clicked on the ad, I was hooked! Now, I have yet to take plunge on any of the items and make an order but I wanted share my browsings from this kitschy, stylish, vintage inspired site!
Mod Cloth mainly retails vintage inspired clothing, jewelery, accessories, housewares and even shoes. What drew me there were the gorgeous dresses and the quirky home decor.
Here are some of my favourite finds!
Can’t say no to a coral dress. Ok, well this might be borderline orange but I’d like to think it’s coral anyways. I love the lines in this dress, normally I veer towards simplistic styling but I think the crepe fabric and vibrant hue makes this dress an absolute winner.
This is something that I’d choose for a fancy dinner out on the town. Again, there’s that bright pop of red/coral in the bodice but that vintage lace gives this an old school appeal. The shape is a classic sheath but who can resist that little peek-a-boo bit at the back?
This top just screams fun in the sun! I love the tangerine leopard design framed by the little black collar. The trapeze shape is rather modern and would go well with some jean shorts and a bright shoe.
Cute romper? Check.
Floral print? Check.
Pockets for mints? Check.
Absolutely darling for the spring? CHECK CHECK CHECK!
A few other titbits that caught my eye…
Mod Cloth also carries some of the cutest home decor items. Everything is such a fun surprise. I think it’ll make any home that much more interesting.
A few things I have noticed when looking through their website is the lack of descriptions for materials of the clothing, which (unless you are very good a differentiating via photographs) might be a problem for some. However they do have a “review” section where customers can rate and talk about the item so that is helpful for shopping online. In addition, I really wish they had a petites section as I am rather…small… to say the least.
Mod Cloth is certainly a treasure house of catchy clothing and accessory pieces. I often see myself as the little black sheep in the crowd, I like something a little different than what is generally offered at the mall. If I’m not sewing it myself, I think Mod Cloth is the place I’d be. It’d also be a great place to look for unique gifts for family and friends…okay, I’ll stop rambling now…I really think I just need to get something from there…
