ModCloth Collar ID Dress

All About the Outfit:  I am genuinely shocked about how much I love this dress (Collar ID dress by ModCloth)!  I was offered it back in August to wear at the ModCloth IRL: Denver event for my hosting duties.  Knowing it would be approximately 80 million degrees out and being that it had long sleeves, even breathable ones like these, I declined.  Most of the late summer and early fall items from ModCloth have been super reduced lately and I had a ton of store credit to play around with so I took a chance on this dress (I never got a chance to try it on at the pop-up store because it was so busy and remained unsure how well it would work with my figure, which was another concern I had about wearing the dress to host the ModCloth IRL event).  

When I tried this dress on I didn't even want to take it off!  It fits better than I could have hoped!  I wanted to wear it the night I got it but it was unusually balmy so I wanted to wear an outfit without sleeves, as I know I'll still have a few more weeks of wearing a long sleeved dress like this out and about.  Sizing wise, I'm wearing an XS.  I was tempted to try the XXS because there isn't a waist line seam and I didn't want it to look like a potato sack, but the XS is loose with the perfect amount of shape defining for my current 24/25 inch waist.

Style Details:  Apologies, friends.  Winter is usually when my accessorizing A game comes out to play as it's easier to wear brooches with cardigans than with spaghetti strap dresses, but I've been lazy in the jewelry etc department lately!  I blame a crazy exhaustive 2016 and a mostly busy 2017/partially more relaxing start to the year!  I'm in decompression mode and am craving simplicity, even in my outfits!  Hell, I took off ALL of my rings that I wear daily over the summer to avoid tan lines and I still haven't put them back on!  Oh well, there's a few more months before the easy and breezy days of summer come back so I'll have time to make it up to y'all.  And for now I stand by this outfit: you don't need much to make an outfit pop!  A statement dress with a simple but bold shoe can stand alone, be a show stopper, and be deceptively low maintenance!  


This week has gone by a little too quick for my liking!  I feel like I haven't had enough time to get everything done that I wanted/needed to!  It's going to be a busy couple of days, but it looks like my weekend is more open than I was anticipating and I welcome that as I've had a very sleep deprived week!!  What do you all have cooking for you weekends??

  6. That is such a stunning dress and yellow looks amazing on you! I am not crazy about yellow as it looks weird on my very warm, yellow skin tone but on you it's really fab!
