Welcome to Outfit of the Week!

Hello ModLovers, Lindsay here. I am bringing you the first installment of my “Outfit of the Week” piece. Each week, I’ll venture into new and (hopefully) exciting style ideas plucked from the pages of ModCloth.com! As an expert/owner of a good portion of the wonderful items we bring to your life, I hope to shed some extra insight into the versatile world of our clothing.

8/20 outfit

In my inaugural week, I bring you my take on the essential back to school garb. The standards are covered – plaid a plenty, outstanding oxfords – but with a figure flattering update that moves from the classroom to the cafe with couture to spare, you can turn heads while you turn the pages of your required reading.

I started with the Brazen Beauty Mini Dress. An easy to match blue is subtle and wearable, but don’t be deceived – this is not your average jumper. Weathered gold buttons add a unique touch to this look, while a loose cut and matching belt assure a perfect fit for almost any shape. Next, the shoes! The Literary Love Heels by shoe guru Jefferey Campbell are studious style incarnate. These leather bound lovelies feature classic stitching and a 4.5 inch heel that will take your studies to new heights. And finally, lets accessorize. Any good fashion student knows well chosen accessories can mean the difference between fashion forward and fashion roadkill. The Deciduous Scarf is soft and fall friendly while adding a unique touch of color, and The Poets Golden Cuff, while unhelpful with your literature homework, crosses the “t”s and dots the “i”s (if you catch my drift).

I would add some joke about this outfit “making the grade”, but I’ll let you fill in that blank for yourself. Enjoy the weather, enjoy your wardrobe, and as always, happy shopping!

    Oh, oh!
    This fall excites me!
    Peacock is all over the place! (An umbrella!? Impressed!)
    Flannel, plaid, 60s silhouttes, zaps of color, animal, and the feathers, the feathers, the feathers…
    And it’s driving me nutter-butter!
    It’s a good feeling!

    Can’t wait for your outfits! :cute:
