Bloggers Rock Retro Frocks by Eva Franco

We were so smitten by these four Eva Franco dresses–which were voted into production via our Be the Buyer program–that we sent samples to bloggers to see how they’d accessorize these sassy styles.

Tieka of Selective Potential looks wonderful in the What a Debut Dress, which she offset with a vibrant orange cardi, while Elizabeth of Delightfully Tacky wears the Frames and Fortune Dress, complete with a pretty scarf and haute hat.

Elsie of A Beautiful Mess is fetching in the avian-adorned Swan in a Million Years Dress, which she styled with a fuchsia sweater. And, last but not least, we were mesmerized by the Movie Moment Dress, which Katie of Skunkboy Creatures donned with an adorbs heart headband and neutral heels.

Which style are you falling for? How would you wear it?


About Turi

When Turi isn’t blogging, you can find her nose behind a book. But reading isn’t her only pastime. She loves running (cue jogging stroller), taste-testing pizza and burgers, and working on the next great American novel. Her latest homage to all things literary? Her son is named after writer Dashiell Hammett. How apropos.

      You’re right! I thought I’d seen the What a Debut dress on Glee recently! And Lea Michele wore the Movie Moment dress in the recent Valentine’s Day episode! And I was like,”I love that dress!” They should post more Glee fashions on here cause I love some of the styles on there. I’d prolly be too poor to afford them though. :o( Usually I just come on Modcloth to drool or get ideas.

      But also,yay! A fellow gleek! :o)

    I love the last dress – movie moment! Possibly change the belt to a wide black patent with – high heels, possibly t-strap.

    Does ModCloth only give dresses to the same rotation of bloggers? While these ladies are all super pretty, stylish and have flourished blogs, it would be nice to see some other ladies that have just as entertaining blogs receive courtesy dresses that they otherwise couldn’t afford. Just a thought..

    I adore these dresses – can’t figure out which one I want more! And I love how they’ve been styled – particularly how Elizabeth accessorized the Frames and Fortune Dress!

    My jaw dropped when I saw Elizabeth in that dress. What a sharp look! I love all the dresses, but I think that one’s my favorite 🙂

    Not to be a total jerk here, but when is Modcloth going to expand and give other bloggers a chance? I am sick of seeing the same few people in constant rotation.

    I love the Frames and Fortune Dress! These ladies are lovely! Don’t get me wrong, but hey Modcloth, can we get some OTHER bloggers on here for a change? These girls are practically celebrities; let’s try promoting some other talented blogging ladies for a change…

    All the girls look so, so pretty. I love the red and white dress in the last picture. So feminine and sweet.

    I absolutely LOVE all four of these dresses with the first two being my favorites. I would likely style the Frames and Fortune dress with a wide black belt and a bright pump and the what a debut dress with my signature pearls and neutral mary jane heels. I’m going to have to save up though, I wish they weren’t so expensive 🙁

    What LOVELY dresses…. Too bad they aren’t reasonably priced. The average person cannot afford these… which is a shame. 🙁

    So thrilled to have scored the swan in a million dress last week through ebay! It’s in wonderful condition too and I look forward to wearing it.

    Would love to see Leandra of Bleu-Avenue do a special thing for Modcloth someday! She’s been blogging for a long time now, still a relatively small blogger, but so wonderful and also relatable. I get all of the feels from her pics and writing.
