A friend of mine is getting married a few weeks before we are in August, and has asked her six bridesmaids to wear a red or orange dress of their choosing. Of course I want to make mine!
For inspiration, I went to ModCloth, thinking--red dress, outdoor wedding... I'm seeing a retro 50's full-skirted number! I found some things...
But instead of just finding inspiration for a solid-colored or simple, bridesmaid-ey dress, I found (of course!) so many cute summer dresses and more!
I don't have much use for cute summery dresses these days, however; so I was excited to see lots of work-appropriate dresses on ModCloth. I love their funky vintage style, but how can you wear it to work?
I remembered I like to look at ModCloth every week or so, when I'm sewing a lot and particularly summery things, since they have so much great stuff and tell you "New today!" and "New yesterday!" so you can keep track of what you've seen and what you haven't. Here are some more of my faves of the wear-to-work persuasion...
They've done it again... an amazing retro-inspired look that's totally wearable in 2011.
Do you have any tips for balancing a vintage-ey look while being professional at the same time? Sometimes I find myself stuck in the black blazer trap... black blazers go with anything and make you look polished. But I can't wear mine every day. Tips?
