Modcloth and Baby T’s Fashion Diaries
So I am completely flattered to be asked to participate in Modcloth’s uniquely you campaign.
The first article of clothing they have asked me to style in my individual taste is their: “The Garden Home Tour Dress in Pink”
This dress is absolutely stunning!
The cut is absolutely perfect for my body type: a high-waisted dress with a sweet-heart neckline!
And florals are very trendy this spring,
Although I can appreciate the beauty of this dress…
I am not particularly a flowery-pink-girly girl… I am up for the challenge to make this dress my own.
I am going to darken it up a bit!
This Crochet Cardigan keeps the spring look but definitely darkens the look for me. But I do not want to lose my waist so I added a belt.
The feather ties in nicely with the crochet cardigan, and the teal ties in nicely with the colours of the floral dress. The colour isn’t matchy-matchy with the dress, but they do “go together.”
I was beyond happy when I found these rings that have the deep teal colour of the belt and the white and red from the dress… helping me bring everything together.
I also like the edgy contemporary style of the rings that contrasts with the old-style of the dress.
Lastly I choose a dark red heel that compliments both the dress and the dark accessories I added.
I picked this style of heel to give the dress a more contemporary feel.
I did a lot of mixing with this styling:
Mixing: flowerly-pink-girly with dark-crochet-feathers.
Mixing: the old vintage style dress with the contemporary heel and rings.
But I used the colour pallet to help tie everything together.
I know some of my readers would love to wear this dress.
You can get this dress and accessories that would go perfectly while representing what this dress stands for at:
My styling has really changed the look of this dress…almost making the flowers ironic.
But the Modcloth campaign is called Uniquely You.
And this is how i would wear and style this dress!
I hope you can appreciate the changes I’ve made to the over all character of the look.
Let me know what you think! 🙂
