ModCloth + Morning Blush | Uniquely You Campaign

February 6, 2014

Hello Everyone! As I was checking my emails last week just like any other day, I was ecstatic to receive an email titled "ModCloth & Morning Blush" from the lovely Amy Hirt. I was asked if I had any interest to participate in the Uniquely You Campaign this week. I love all of ModCloth's vintage inspired clothing and unique items for the home since the very beginning, so of course in a heartbeat I said "Yes!" Also, another great thing about them is that they carry plus sizes! I was required to build an ensemble around this piece-Evening of Extravagance Dress on Polyvore.com. I was required to use up to seven other pieces currently being sold on ModCloth in addition to the main piece. I thought the "Evening of Extravagance Dress" was a wonderful piece to style because I think its absolutely elegant and grand. It reminded me a lot of my prom dress actually.

For this look, I was really inspired by the 1950's silhouette of this dress. I wanted to keep the retro feel of this dress while adding a few pieces to make this look a little more modern and updated. I often find myself styling black and gold together because I feel like it makes the look more elegant and chic. I decided to add a unique piece to the look with a intricate chain hairpiece. Since I already have the beautiful hairpiece, I decided to keep the earrings slightly subtle with the gold stud earrings. I wanted to add some lace gloves to keep the 1950's feel. I added a few delicate gold rings for a personal touch and also to keep the elegance flowing. I always feel that the shoes can make the outfit and make the whole outfit more complete so I always like to opt for a statement shoe. In this case, I chose a glitter heel to add some shine and dimension to the ensemble. Keeping the 1950's look in mind, I decided to go for a bold red lip. Lastly, I wanted to tie this whole look together with a little modern edge by adding a leather jacket. Voila! There you have my ensemble and it is ready to be worn at a ball! :) Thank you for reading! Talk to you all real soon!
