A jewelry store in the Lower East Side that also sells adorable clothing – 'twas a medium and definitely could just baaarely pull it off, but not "I'm-willing-to-spend-over-$100-on-a-dress-that's-too-small-for-me" pull it off. Trust me, if it was going to work, I would have purchased it by now.

I love this so very much. It's from Victorian Maiden in Japan so is unlikely to fit my fluffy Western European frame and would also be super expensive to ship, so I'm going to make my own.


I love this! I'd be curious to know how making your own goes. Do you have a pattern in mind that you are going to modify?


Yep - it's going to be the Burdastyle Princess Seam Pencil Skirt 04/2012 #118. The Princess seam panels look about spot on and I can adjust the waist and hemline, add in ruffles etc.

My modcloth dress was too small, so I exchanged it and now it's too big and I need a dress to wear Sunday. So I'm kind of having a meltdown.

I've been obsessed with dresses recently (I'm normally a jeans person). I got these 3 dresses in the past couple months:

It's cute but looks super short. I don't think I'd be comfortable in it.

I have kind of scrawny legs so I like to pretend that I can pull off short dresses. If it is really short, I'll wear opaque tights and hope that that still keeps me decent. I'm weird...I couldn't possibly ever be comfortable showing cleavage (if I had any), but I don't give a damn about my legs flying all over the place.

Not a dress, but perfect for my dresses! We had Christmas yesterday and my amazing mum bought me this coat from Ruche. It is so perfect!

I had been coveting it for ages.

8Ball, did you make the skirt? I would love to see it. It's a great design.

These would also be agreeable:

I love Dear Creatures stuff, although I'm not sure it would work that well with my body type. I like the grey stripey dress.

I bought this on sale.

I don't really neeeeeeeeed it but it's so pretty.

also adorable!

the first one might work on me just because i'm super short so it wouldn't be too short for me, probably :D

That's cute! I'm so jealous of everyone's ModCloth finds. I never like anything I order, and they make returns outside the US ridiculously expensive (you have to pay for shipping it back and you don't receive a refund on the original shipment).

I don't generally covet dresses, but I have to have this:

http://www.loft.com/loft/product/produc ... Color=2171

The birds in the print even looks like Molly! Squee! Want! Hopefully it doesn't sell out before I'm in the mood to look at spring clothes. My birthday is in April--this would be an excellent use of birthday funds.

(I was looking for a cheap cream cardigan or something to match the scrf my aunt sent me for Christmas.)

I bought this at the weekend. From Topshop.

Image

I also spotted this on their website & I love it.

Image

I mainly love it because of the colour & the back but spending the same as the cost of the dress on a bra with clear straps just so that I can wear the it seems too ridiculous so I probably won't buy it!

Image

I also bought an amazing lime green dress from Topshop at the weekend but it doesn't seem to be on the website. If I wear it this weekend I'll try to post a pic in the what you're wearing thread.

I returned the dress I posted above because it clashed with my new bright red hair and didn't look as pretty...but then I went back to Stop Staring and bought two I'd been eyeing for months, maybe even a year. No more clothes for a little while!
