Last Saturday, my friends and I spent a fun morning in Downtown LA to see ModCloth in real life! You have no idea how much I have wanted to see all those website goodies. One can only cyber-window shop for so long, you know? At the event, they had stylists taking measurements, giving out candy and flavored waters, and just getting to know us as Modcloth fans. Fitting rooms too! I have always wanted to know how those dresses fit before buying them.
As much as I would have wanted to buy everything, this gal is still on a budget. I did manage to snag these cute shades and a gift for my mom (shh! It's for Mother's Day). Luckily, Modcloth has a bunch of my favorite items from the event available on the website.
This Fruit Dress was featured at the entrance of the event and we couldn't help but go back and admire it all morning. It is just perfect for summer, especially for all those summer BBQs.
Cat Lover's Paradise
If you were to remember anything from the items displayed, it is that Modcloth is a cat lover's paradise. I never realized how perfect the shape of a cat can be for so many accessories. If I baked, I would have been all over those measuring cups!
And this is why I adore Modcloth! I love the quirky things you find here that are usually only offered in vintage-type shops. That fabric stag head is offered as a craft kit - how freakin' cute is that? I also fell in love with that octopus ring and am totally regretting not buying it this weekend. That and the sewing pattern makeup bag are officially on the top of my wish list.
You can check out the rest of my finds on Polyvore. You can also click here for more photos of the Modcloth IRL. If you were unable to go to this awesome event, you can still shop online. What is even better is that you get free shipping with a purchase of $50 or more. Sweet!
Here's another shot of the glasses because raising my eyebrow is one of those talents I have always been proud of. :)
