double trouble

Disclaimer: Double outfit post! Picture heavy.

Just got this delightful dress from ModCloth, it's such a fun print and a versatile cut. Had a little bit of fun today styling it up in a more retro, vintage way and then again, in a more modernized, casual way.

I bought this one tube of red lipstick last summer to be Snow White for a costume party, and I never would have foreseen how many times it's come in handy! See two posts below, wore it for the 20s themed party also.

Lovely! The first outfit was like the sophisticated mother and the second was her fun-loving daughter... haha.

Love that dress (I can't even keep up with the amount of dresses I want from ModCloth)!

The yellow coat is so stylish and chic in the first look and the keds give a cool, relaxed vibe in the second look. Overall, you're right, that dress is really a fun and versatile look.

I love the vintage look of the first outfit! I've been lusting after that dress for a while, and now I've got some ideas of how to style it! :) I also really like the second outfit, a little more casual but still darling. :)

Love this :D I actually just did something similar. Though both of my versions of a dress are pretty girly and not super casual. That dress is so amazing. I love it paired with the cute yellow jacket :D
