City Scape

Once in a blue moon Modcloth does their Stylish Surprise. Stylish Surprise is a mystery box that used to be just apparel, but has now been extended to shoes and home goods. The last time I ordered a Stylish Surprise was in April 2014. Although I was pleased with what I received, I ended up re-gifting my dress because it suited my friend Liz much better than me.

When I unboxed this dress I instantly was surprised by the unusual print. I was intrigued, it reminded me of something Carrie Bradshaw would wear in the Carrie Diaries --- the CW show based on Candace Bushnall's book series starring Anna-Sophia Robb. Dreadful show, but it had the most amazing, and original styling, RIP!
This dress is certainly something I wouldn't instantly order but I do love it. I was also surprised to see that this dress retailed originally for $140 from the brand Emily and Fin. It's the Painted City Circus Dress, on Modcloth it's known as "Walk Down the Isle in Cosmopolitan." The only problem I have with this dress is that its a tad long, and I need to have it taken in just the slightest. However, for $15 this dress is certainly worth it!

Other than frolicking in Modcloth dresses summer has been a busy one for me. I've been interning at Anthropologie as a Visual Display Intern and it's been so much fun. Other than interning I've been going to concerts, spending time with friends and family, reading, and shopping (of course). My last read was Revolting Youth: the Further Journals of Nick Twisp and my last purchase was a pair of side-zipped denim shorts from J.Crew.

So, happy summer, friends. Let’s make this a beautiful one, the most beautiful yet. I challenge you to put on your favorite dress, and dance around to the Wombats. You can thank me later!
