Mad for ModCloth!

ModCloth was started by two 17 year old sweethearts which totally amazes me because the website is freakin awesome!!! It is the sweetest story and you can read more quick and interesting facts here.

Before I turn this website into a mushy love story I need to tell you the reasons I love shopping here.

1. They have very unique clothes which makes sense because it started out as all vintage but they now incorporate vintage-inspired pieces as well as the real thing.
2. You can "be the buyer" meaning they put an article of clothing up on the website and you get to vote whether or not you would purchase the item and if the piece gets enough votes...VOILA, they will put it up for sale.
3. If you find a dress you love but you think it looks short or the fabric looks funny or WHATEVER, you can look through customer comments of people that have actually bought the items and they will tell you the truth about each piece. (I have actually been saved by customers many times regarding a shirt or skirt that I love but the reviews said it was too tight, short, ect)

Here are some cute finds for spring!!!

Get Spotted!!!

Polka Dots are seen on all types of clothing but more often than not you see them on children's clothes, lingerie and the occasional clown suit. (YIKES)
The most common polka dot pattern is the white on black or black on white as seen on this precious cardigan that I really, really want here!

Polka dots are playful and girly so if you are feeling particulally frisky take after these celebs and get spotted!!!





Copy the styles:

Welcome to Mexico:)

I had a great, great time in Cancun for my 30th birthday!!! Well...except for missing our connecting flight out of Houston back to Knoxville, me getting sun poisoning (we think) and getting back home only to realize I had an Upper Respiratory Infection but other than that it was just peachy, HONEST!!!

There were no girls fights which is a miracle when you get 4 girls sleeping in the same room combined with a alcohol induced haze the entire trip and a mother-daughter pair...HI MOM:) The weather was beautiful, the drinks were flowing and I was in great company!! Here are some pics to prove my point and a little side note-if you are planning to go to Cancun here in the next year you NEED to stay at Park Royal Cancun All Inclusive Resort. The resort was fabulous for the amount of money we spent...I would go back and stay there in a heartbeat and probably will!!


Cancun, Mexico




Okay...it is seriously 3 in the morning in the picture so don't be looking at my puffy eyes!!! Dress was gifted by my friend Lee Marie but from Target and the cardigan is from Ann Taylor Loft and tan is courtesy of Cancun:)



Me in a dress gifted by my friend Erin but from Old Navy, my friends Amanda and Christie and my mommy!



My mom and I (in a dress gifted by Tara but from Old Navy and a fabulous necklace from my girl Allison) and Christie and Amanda doing the butt:)

An Apple A Day....

Ok, I have got some sort of funk from vacation so I'm sorry I am so slow on the postings but I wanted to mention a great website for buying dresses called Shabby Apple. Hopefully I will be back up to speed tomorrow and will be able to resume living again:(

This super cool website lets you shop by body type, ask style advice and if you sign up on the mailing list you get 10% off your first order...WHOOP WHOOP!!!

Here are some of my favorite things....
