In the Mood for ModCloth

One of our very favorite (and SF local) online shopping sites is ModCloth! If you haven’t heard of it, you should check out their fun pieces now. What we love about ModCloth is the fact that they have stylish pieces at a price point that isn’t going to break the bank. Britt and I thought it would be fun to pick out one dress that would look good on both of our body types and build two different looks based on our personal style.

ModCloth-BoardI chose the finishing touches to a perfect “day” look. When I saw this dress, I instantly pictured myself sailing or near the beach somewhere enjoying the sun! This tote is the perfect pop of color that this striped dress needs, plus it is reversible! I don’t go anywhere without a watch on my wrist, and I fell in love with this classic piece.  Lastly, I always bring sandals to the beach, these “Take Aim” sandals are so unique and tie the tote back in perfectly with that beautiful coral tone.

Brittany pictured a fabulous “night” look and came up with such a fun combo! Starting with these bold and gold geometric earrings, they really help give the dress a fancier feel. Carrying a chained clutch for night makes the most sense, you just need enough room for your lip gloss, credit card, and cell phone- this neutral clutch is the perfect size for all of that! Spicing things up with a bright yellow heel keeps the look cute and perfect for a night out with friends or a special someone!

We had so much fun shopping on ModCloth that we stumbled upon a few other dresses that would look just as fabulous with our picks in different shapes and colors!

Coachella Wants and Wishes

Coachella 2012With the massive music lovers festival right around the corner (literally), I’ve began to pack.  Packing is so much fun for Coachella because despite my experience with the extremely cold weather last year (we deemed it Snowchella), it’s typically the first taste of real summer.  Our whole group of friends rallies together to camp out away from the festival on an amazing piece of property where there are horses, a pool, and endless good times.  During my packing process, I’ve come across many items that are totally justifiable to buy and bring and also many that are a more of a want (the things you want to buy but can’t justify when you know Coachella may be the only place you get to rock the piece).

BP Sunglasses(WANT: BP sunglasses are my jam!  They are always under $15 and adorable.  Not to mention you don’t feel bad if they get lost or broken)

white scalloped swim suit(WISH:  These amazing scalloped swimsuits designed by Stone Cold Fox are definitely on my wish list)

cheetah print vans(WANT: These cheetah print vans are wild and cute)

Spell Byron Bay Skirt(WISH: Beautiful maxi skirts/dresses to wear to stay cool and enjoy the festival.  This one is by Spell Designs)

Anyone else going to Coachella this year?!  What musicians are you looking forward to seeing?
