27 on the 27th

Belt, Bracelet & Necklace: Vintage
I'm so excited to announce today that I'm ModCloth's Facebook ModStylist for this week! Since it's my birthday month and I'm determined to celebrate it in style for once (rather than just going ice skating and calling it a night), I styled an outfit that would be perfect for a wintery birthday fete. I loved the deep hues of the Everyday Extraordinary dress, paired with dark tights, and gold heels and accessories, it's perfectly 60's inspired and structured, but is something that I feel comfortable going out in and celebrating! My birthday isn't officially until the 27th, but I plan to celebrate all month!

If you have a question about how to wear any of your ModCloth pieces, I'll be answering questions through Wednesday on the ModStylist facebook page! Stop by and say hi, and ask me a question! And while you're there you can be a fan of Orchid Grey too!

Did you have a great weekend?

The strong shoulders catch my eye the most--or perhaps I'm just longing for a little baring of flesh in the middle of winter. Happy Birthday!

Birthday month, or at least week, is the only way to do it! Mind you, my dad said to me when I was six years old, "You'll never be 6 on the 6th again." Gave me a bit of a complex, for a while... ; )

joelle van dyne said...

woo congrats on the modcloth gig! i'm obsessing over their polka dot blouse posted below, so i may just be asking you how to style it soon :) this dress is just gorgeous on you! i love the pairing of the heavier shoes and tights with the bare arms. it is such a glamorous look. ~joelle

That dress is gorg! Your birthday is 3 days after mine :) I'm also determined to have a more memorable birthday this year...in years past it's almost as if it wasn't acknowledged, that's how lame they've been. You've inspired me to put on a pretty dress and make the most of my day!

holly said...

Congratulations! Also, did you change you hair color or is it just the lighting? It has a very two-toned look here that I am loving!

Caroline said...

I LOVE the cut of the dress! So flattering and it looks vintage-y yet new (if that makes sense?). The pattern is gorgeous. I am officially in love with that ring too. Happy almost birthday!
