Ahoy!

This post was written by Lindy Shopper.

My interest in all things sailor suit was piqued by this adorable nautical dress that popped up on Mod Cloth today. Another Stop Staring creation, this Luxury Craft Dress is fit for a swing dance or a cruise in one of those wooden motor boats from the 40’s or 50’s…yes!

Is it summer yet?

Mod Cloth: Ilsa Dress

This post was written by Lindy Shopper.

There is so much about this red Stop Staring! dress to love. It’s fire engine red and form fitting, definitely a head-turner; but it’s also ladylike and tailored, with ruched sleeves, bodice detail, a modest hemline and a little flower “corsage” to decorate the shoulder. This dress would be an asset to any dancer’s wardrobe – click on over to Mod Cloth’s website to pick one up. I’m debating this one myself…

Spring cleaning

This post was written by Lindy Shopper.

It’s that time of year where some of us (myself included) feel compelled to rid ourselves of the trappings of winter, of items that don’t fit anymore, or items that are simply not being worn. In that vein, my pal and swing dance Wonder Woman Kristy Milliken (seller ID rhythm.is.my.business – indeed!) is selling some stylish castoffs from her closet on eBay, all with free shipping so you don’t have to do that extra calculation in your head. Here’s what she’s listed:

Stop Staring! black and pink dress

Aris Allen satin t-strap shoes, size 8.5

Keds champion slip-ons, size 8 - new in box!

Mod Cloth: the democratic republic of vintage-inspired fashion

This post was written by Lindy Shopper.

When Mod Cloth was discovered online by one of my friends, news of the web site spread like wildfire in my circle of friends because we were starved for a place to get modern retro-inspired clothing at a reasonable price. Variety is the spice of life and Mod Cloth takes this to heart by offering clothing from many different sources, including Trashy Diva, Stop Staring!, and Tulle, thus, giving you maximum exposure to brands offering what you want to wear. The really great clothing items sell out quickly, but I find that if they include the brand or maker in the item description, that the item that is out of stock on Mod Cloth may be in stock at the source web site.

Perhaps the reason Mod Cloth is so great is in large part due to the philosophies of its founders:

“Founded by high school sweethearts, Eric Koger and Susan Gregg Koger, and built on a foundation of love for vintage and retro clothing, ModCloth.com is an online clothing, accessories, and decor retailer that aims to provide a fun and engaging shopping atmosphere for you, our customer.

A fashion democracy? Hear, hear!

The web site is so full of goodness that I’ll limit my favorites to the most recent arrivals:
