Tried a red, long-sleeved version of this dress on at Anthropologie that’s been out for a while. It was awesome. Saw this on Modcloth (it’s new to the site today) and contemplating getting one or the other. Same dress? Half the price. What up with that? I’m guessing the Modcloth version is a lighter weight fabric (you can see the light through the dress at the bottom of the Modcloth dress and the fabric is not clinging to the form as the Anthro one does).
Anthropologie – $178 – 48 inches long
Modcloth – $79.99 – 41.5-43 inches long depending on size
I’m still not over floral prints, vests and boots.

The thing about bloggers is that every once in a while they should blog. I’m not really a blogger. I’m a personal stylist with one client (myself) who occasionally blogs. I also have a short attention span. Those are my excuses anyways. I’ve been playing a bit with other hobbies including Pinterest and sewing.
Gals pinboard on Pinterest
Pinterest is a virtual pinboard for images. Most of the users on Pinterest are women. It can provide particularly good inspiration if you are planning any sort of event or decorating your home. It’s also a good place to browse if you like fashion or are just plain crafty. The only drawback that I have determined is that I realize the love of turqoise/teal is TOTALLY MAINSTREAM and that I’ll have to find a new favorite color of the moment. I’m thinking yellow or maybe green. Anyways my Pinterest board for women’s fashion is located here: http://pinterest.com/wadeandassoc/gals/

I’ve been taking sewing classes at Meissner’s since April and have finished a couple of projects. I am ALMOST done with my first dress. It’s a Vogue pattern – a simple jersey dress. My teacher thinks it is too tight (note that my boyfriend thinks it is not tight enough)
and I can tell that we are going to have some disagreements on fit . She doesn’t even know I’m cutting 4-5 inches off the bottom. Kids these days!

Yes most of them are summer-y and light-weight dresses but short enough to be worn over leggings (or jeggings) and with a belted sweater for fall. If you are fans of Free People, Roxy, or J.Crew you should especially take a look at their sales right now.
