Rainbow Store


All About the Outfit: 
How amazing is this dress?  It's from ModCloth's house brand and it debuted a month or two ago (I talked about it, and all other things amazing in the retro reproduction world HERE a short while back).  There's something so classic, timeless, fun, and ladylike all at once with this dress that I knew it had to be mine.  What I extra love about it is that while it's rainbow striped, the colors are slightly off from a typical ROYGBIV color scheme.  The red is really pink, there's both navy and pewter blues in it as opposed to a standard royal blue, and so forth.  Color me in love!  (See what I did there?)

Outfit Details:
Dress- ModCloth
Shoes- Bamboo via ModCloth
Necklace- Punky Pins (Sold Out)

Music Time!
New York Dolls!  New York Dolls!  They're one of my all-time favorite bands and I have yet to use them for a blog post.  Since they're not a mega household name they basically pre-dated all things punk and glam rock/metal and are the grandfathers of those genres of sorts.  (Everyone from the Ramones to Guns n Roses were influenced by them).  To me, they're a band that is genuinely rock and roll and not a cliche, for they sort of became the prototype to what most other rock bands would aspire to be in a cliche way.  Their music is more pure than any modern rock band I see "trying to rock," if that makes sense.  Anyway, I found about about them a little over a decade ago and just kind of perked up and became obsessed haha.  Here's a song from them, appropriate for this blog post, called, "Rainbow Store."

  4. This dress is gorgeous! I like it more on you than on the model. The colors remind me of the Crayola 'Bold' marker set. How tall are you? I can't tell if this would be too long on me or not.

  20. Spectacular dress! Rainbow hued clothing (and food) is a firm favourite of mine (I even have a Pinterest board devoted to the later :)). This dress is so immensely pretty and really, really looks incredible on you.
