Next Stop? Winning the Wear in the World Contest!

Did you jump on the train and submit an entry to our Wear in the World Contest? From a trip to the Taj Mahal, to a wedding in Vegas, over the past few weeks, ModCloth items have been shown lots of love around the world! While choosing a winner was difficult, we went with one that shook us the moment we saw it. Congrats to Katrina, whose “Railroad Thunder” photo from Grand Rapids, Michigan, embodies the spirit of the ModCloth girl!

In addition to her photo entry, Katrina described why she chose the city’s railways to represent her travel style:

“As a train pushes forward to the bridge, you can hear the rumbling of the wheels on the tracks, like a storm in the distance. The zig zag patterns of the beams race down the structure like lightning, and a gust of air from the passing engine flies through your hair like a stormy summer night. Even the water below echoes the sounds of moving water throughout the banks of the river. Who would have thought that an old wooden train bridge could mimic a summer thunderstorm so well?

Unlike many who visit the Gerald R. Ford Museum, the Giant Button, the Tire Swing, or the Fluoride Memorial in downtown Grand Rapids, this old train bridge keeps me coming back every time I’m visiting in GR!”

From contrasting zig zag patterns down to the name of the Thunderstruck Top, Katrina’s scene and style are a perfect match. What ModCloth pieces would be the perfect companion to your own past, or future vacation?
