Her fragances seem to be very popular too. Can anyone recommend one of them? Also, where can to get samples?

They're from Stop Staring http://www.stopstaringclothing.com/sunshop/

I have three of their dresses already and they're great. They're not cheap but made in the USA and good quality. I'm trying not to go shopping and just buy a few nice things every couple of months, taking advantage of the strong Aussie dollar!

I'm late to the H&M FWP, but seriously. When I go into one of their stores I pretty much want to kill myself after five minutes because of the music, the craziness of my fellow shoppers, and the overwhelmingness of wanting to try 100 things on (deals!), that I usually just sigh, put the stuff back, and leave. Online shopping would be appreciated.

The only thing I ever get there anymore are purses, tights and underoos. The clothes are ill fitting.

Yeah, I usually find things that are cute in theory, but then I try them on and don't end up buying them. I got some socks there pretty recently.

I have the coach tour dress in olive and I LOVE IT. And while I wear a bunch of dresses, many of which are flashier, this has probably gotten me the most compliments of any of them.
I so desparately want this modcoth dress, but I am waiting for 1.) more reviews on the site and 2.) the money for it (it will be a long wait...).

I warn you that if you go through the whole of Ruche's website, as I have recently done, your closet will seem as if there is a big Ruche-shaped hole in it.

Sorry I can't save the images to post, but here are a few dresses I'm swooning for:

I have been eying this dress too! Interesting coincidence.

How do you think the coach tour dress would fit on someone who's a bit taller than average? I've been eying it in a few colors for months, but I'm afraid to buy it because so many skirts and dresses are too short on me. :(

I'm 5'8 with long legs and I'm sort of a prude when it comes to skirt length, and it fits me fine. It hits a few inches above my knee, below mid-thigh. It is totally fine to wear it to work and dinners with my mother-in-law, etc.

Ooh Anek that's hot!
I've never ordered from ModCloth but see so many things on there that I like, but am too afraid to order the wrong size. And I have the opposite problem as you, Kilgore_trout: I am short, so I look for dresses that look short on the model so they will be at least above the knee on me, but not too short or too long. I suppose I could get them hemmed or something.
I want to get a few dresses so it feels like summer is closer.

Hooray! I'm built pretty much the same. Now I just need to pick a color. D:

I just realized I had the Streetcar dress, not the Coach Tour dress--they have almost the exact same cut. But looking at the measurements, the Coach Tour dress looks like it's 1-1.5 inches longer, so you should still be okay?

You can email them through the 'customer care' tab at the top to ask for measurements, I did that for a pair of boots last year and they got back to me within a couple of days with the measurements for two or three different sizes.

I'm five foot nothing and I've actually ordered dresses from ModCloth that have been too short. I don't even know how that happens! I got one for work that I couldn't even sit down in.

Love the dress Anek! I was thinking of buying some stuff from Collectif Clothing once, but on their webshop they don't state the materials so that put me off (I'd like to know if there is wool or silk thankyouverymuch).

Fisticuffs, the one I got is 75% polyestere and 25% cotton, and I tried on another one that was also a syntetic blend. It's funny because I remember looking at a couple of dresses online the other day and some did have a description of the materials, but not all. Maybe email them? From the dresses I saw, they were mostly syntetic, but of course mostly is not all.

Ugh, it's so fun. I usually have an it's-too-cute problems w/ polka dots, but I think the size gradient here makes em work ok with the rest of my style.

Q: I'm never sure how much white is too much to wear to a wedding. I think I could justify a $130 dress if I could wear it to this wedding.

I had my eye on this one too, it's so pretty! I almost ordered the streetcar dress before the bleu coach tour, it was a tough choice. I'm also waiting for this little beauty to come into stock:
