Fan Fare: Imaginary Fashion Blogger Cecily Wears Eva Franco

Cecily wears our Here in My Carnival Dress by Eva Franco!

What if the capacity of your closet was endless? What if after viewing an item you love, for only a moment, you’d be free to style it away as you please, disregarding the fact that you don’t actually own it?

Illustrator and ModCloth fan Alice Rutherford has conjured up characters that can indeed have their sartorial cakes and wear ’em, too, via her ongoing illustration project Imaginary Fashion Bloggers, which is, well, a group of imaginary fashion bloggers that get to wear whatever they want whenever they want.

Meet Ellie, Violet, Cecily, and Ada, the fashionable band of fictitious friends created to fulfill Alice’s wildest wardrobe dreams. What more could a girl (virtually) ask for?
