For those of you who aren't familiar with the online outfitter, ModCloth is an online store that features current on-trend women's apparel as well as vintage finds. They stock everything from dress, pants, scarves, tights and costume jewelry....there's never a time I don't browse their site that I don't have a longing for a particular item...or many! ModCloth is also fairly popular among the style blogging community.
We all know I have little will power when it comes to shopping, so why have I only lost my ModCloth virginity now? I suppose it has to do with my hesitance with online clothing shopping...there's so much you can find out about a garment only by trying it on....and sometimes on the rack it looks fab, but it just might not be right for me. However, I do appreciate that ModCloth posts a size chart on every clothing item they sell (as well as free domestic returns) and sometimes, a risk in online ordering is just like a risk in fashion- following your gut can turn out to be a beautiful thing!

So, yeah, a positive experience has made me a customer that is guaranteed to be a repeat shopper! Although my international shipping order was only $21 in shipping, my friend Katie and I ordered together to split on the cost. Definitely worth it. We placed our order Sunday night and the package was in my hands by Friday afternoon...in time to wear my new lovely pieces to Shauna's birthday party that night!
My love for this mustard yellow colour has been inspired by fellow fashion bloggers sporting this hue: Kendi of Kendi Everday, Liz of 26 and Counting, Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere, and Bee of Atlantic-Pacific.
