An "A" for Effortless

By ModCloth Writing Team Intern, Amy Cockcroft:

When I first saw this adorable young lady, I think I fell in love a little. Not only because she fearlessly combines loads of items I’ve hesitated about being able to ‘pull off’ over the years, but she does it in an effortless and charming way. Her skinnies, layers, glasses, hat, blazer, and vintage bag all boast an innocence and modesty that together create her cute and exuberant style. For a look that’s equally funky, fresh, and fabulous, try piecing together the Pretty Poppy Knit Hat, Gelato Glasses, Creme Caramel Coat, New Black Skinnies, and the More Tassle Less Hassle Brogues, then finish it with the Rose Hips and Licorice Bag.

    Funky! But makes me sweat just looking at it. 😉

    Her top (what you can see of it anyway!) reminds me of the Denver Darling Top, too.

    Thanks for your comments everyone! She’s super cute isn’t she? I’m so jealous! Jen, like Anna H said, it’s a little like our ‘Denver Darling’ top, and I’m doing a bit of research to see if I can find any others like it! 🙂
