Once upon a time.... featuring ModCloth

mod cloth fairy tale style board

Bonjour hunz,
At the beginning of the week I was contacted by Amy from ModCloth who invited me to take part in their "Uniquely You" campaign which involved putting together a wee style board through Polyvore! On Friday I was sent an image of a dress with which I was to style an outfit around... The dress is called When the Night Comes, is priced at $100 and is also available in a gorgeous emerald shade. When I seen the dress I thought it was really girly and for some reason I went with a sort of fairy tale styling (I was originally going to do the complete opposite and dress it down). 
I fell in love with this Steve Madden jacket and it reminded me of something from a fairy tale (...Little Red Riding Hood maybe). The jacket costs $135, but you would definitely get good use out of it. 
So what shoes would I pair with it... Wedges obviously... Now anyone that know me, knows I love sky scrapper heels, I just can't walk in them, so I usually opt for wedges (which I still can't walk in). These wedges are $45 which is a bargain to be honest... I have to stop myself from clicking the buy button. How fab would these look paired with some skinny jeans, a cute blazer and an over sized tote?!
OK on from the shoes and on to the bag... THE BAG!! Talk about fairy tale... I'm in love (this must be how Cinderella and Prince Charming felt!). It looks so delicate and girly and pink and pretty. It's $60, so a little bit more expensive than my usual Penneys handbag, but I will be ordering this soon and it will be mine!
Can we keep talking about the bag?! No?! You've heard enough?! Are you sure?! Ok, so jewellery. Honestly I wouldn't be going crazy with jewellery with this outfit. The necklace I chose is not only super cheap but I think it fits my fairy tale style perfectly and it can be another addition to my growing collection of statement necklaces. This is definitely going to be another purchase of mine after Christmas. 
The dress is something you could dress up or down, perfect for your Christmas party, a date night with himself or just chilling with the girls! ModCloth has some great dresses and loads of quirky accessories (from Shark shoes to school bus tote bags) head over and check them out (just don't order the bag, it's mine).  The total cost of this outfit (including shipping) is $408.17. The shipping is a bit steep to be honest but coming from the states I suppose what can you expect. Converted over to euros it costs just over €300, not bad if you take into account the amount you are buying.
Have any of you heard about ModCloth before? What do you think of their products?
