Dresses galore!

Okay, so now that I'm back to my pre-preggy body (except for my jiggly belly and skin discolorations, yuck), I now have the online shopping itch... and I seriously need to scratch the credit card it. Regular readers know I love online shopping, the anticipation and--finally!--the delivery. I love ripping apart the plastic or stabbing at packages with a box cutter and then finally loving my new shoes/dresses/books/gadgets! It's much better than hours walking in the mall really. For lazy me, at least.

Now, thanks to an ad on Perez Hilton, I discovered ModCloth. The dresses there are to die for! Very Mad Men (anyone watching the current season? This show just gets better and better!). And since I know my readers are super stylish women, please help me choose from the following adorable dresses:
Soda Fountain (Ginger)

Soda Fountain (Grape)

Deuce Coupe Darling





Hepcat (Lemon Cream)

Hepcat (Black Licorice)
Well Red

Temporary Secretary (Summer)

Avocado Orchard

Periwinkle Prance
Red-y or Not

Black by Popular Demand
I only have budget for 4 dresses. Well, for maybe 2 or 3 really since I also still want a bag and a ring as a breezing-through-labor reward. So help me choose my new dresses please!

  11. I always have a big heart for modcloth... itching to visit their site as often as I can. I have a lot of bookmarks of their dresses for the past year and the ginger dress was one of my faves(IT'LL BE A KILLER ON YOU). Thank God PA is quite near and the shipping keeps me sane.

  12. I also love ModCloth! But I've never ordered from them. I just like looking at the dresses. :)

    I like the black one and the lemon polka dots!

  13. Hi Frances,

    thought I'd check on my favourite blogs while I'm lying in bed.

    I recognize these from ModCloth :)
    Love the Hepcat dress in black polka dots. Very classic 50's.
    I bought a dress there a while ago called 'Formally Attired'. The style and fit is great, but the fabric is a bit flimsy - as I'm afraid most dresses from that company are. So choose wisely...

    Also, I paid one helluva customs fee!!!
    Just thought I'd warn you about import duties.

  14. Hepcat--at first I was thinking Black Licorice, but then that's what I want pala. Haha. Lemon Cream would suit you.:) And Temporary Secretary! And Periwinkle Prance!

  15. they're all lovely, but since you're only going to get FOUR, here are my picks:

    1 Deuce Coupe Darling
    2 Black by Popular Demand
    3 Temporary Secretary (Summer)
    4 Well Red

    temporary secretary is my personal fave!!! in fact, i want it for myself! wahahahahahahaha!

  16. Hiya, Frances! Here are my choices/suggestions:

    Hepcat (Black Licorice) - It's black and polka -- what could go wrong?

    Temporary Secretary (Summer) - gray with a touch of pink? gorgeous!

    Avocado Orchard - because it reminds me of happy Christmas. just look at the snowflake-like prints!

    Periwinkle Prance - because the sabrina neck and pleats are so dainty!

    Have fun! and do post your pictures when you got them na. :-)

  17. I would say: soda fountain (grape), hepcat (lemon cream), well red and temporary secretary (summer)

    Enjoy your shopping! :)

  18. Get Well Red and either the Black or Red Hepcat. I think those colors would go with your skin tone and their style is classic, so you'll get your money's worth :)

  19. The temporary secretary is so chica! :)

  20. Hi Frances, Thanks for the comment on my Haagen Dazs post. I hope I win too! Haha!

    I commented on this post because I like seeing girls and ladies in dresses. You never see enough of those. I told my gf that and she wears dresses more often now. :)

  21. Frances,

    Have you figured out what to do with the belly and the discoloration? Please shaaaaaare when you have. Those are my problems, too! It doesn't matter how thin I get; the belly and the discoloration stay the same. Ack!

    P.S That was quick, though. Wow! You ARE superwoman!

  22. I have an entire folder in my Favorites section full of Modcloth dresses. Been wanting to buy from them but I'm nanghihinayang with the shipping fee and scared of the customs charges!
