Style File 01.27.10

I have loved this dress from modcloth since the summer time!! I love the lace collar and the polka dot pattern- it’s very girly and cute. It was named after the beautiful Keiko Lynn when she was Modcloth’s Blogger of the Moment. When I got it in the mail I was so so excited and couldn’t wait to style it up. I have seen lots of girls out there rock the socks and shoes thing lately and it is always so adorable. I have been waiting for the right outfit to try it out with and I thought this dress was perfect for it. I really liked how it all came out. Since it is winter (although its been like 50) I wore it with a long navy boyfriend cardigan, which I had forgotten I had and is now totally brought back into my rotations. The dress is so comfy its like you are wearing your pajamas. I added a little maroon belt at the waist to tie in the color of my shoes and also wore a little anchor necklace that my lovely friend gave me for Christmas.

I think my goal is to own as many beautiful dresses as possible. haha! I love wearing dresses more than anything else. I have a wishlist of like 20 dresses right now over at Modcloth!

  8. That dress is beautiful, and I love how you styled it with those cute socks!

  9. I like the photo they are great. One thing I would change would happen to be the style of hair. I feel it doses not fit the piece. This piece to me is something that is just an update on a old idea, but the hair detracts from it.

    Love ya.

  10. I love love love the dress! It’s so cute, especially the way you wore it. I’m with you on the endless wishlists just for dresses. I’ve become a bit obsessed. haha

  16. Your post came right after this one on my blog reader:

    How appropriate, eh? Love your dress!

  17. I actually really like the way your hair contrasts with the sweetness of the outfit! I love the way you styled it.

    LOVE the color of the shoes. I’ve been aching to rock the shoes and wedges too…

  19. This is adorable! I love the lace and polka dots – those are some of my favorite things!

  20. I love the sock+heel trend too. I’ve tried it with fishnet trouser socks. Definitely a little sexy. The maroon & blue is so pretty together!

  21. Super cute dress!

  22. wow i LOVE every aspect of this outfit! the dress is adorable with it’s lace collar, and i love that you paired it with ankle socks and those cute bow shoes. ~joelle

  23. You look like a porcelain doll in this outfit – I just love it SO much! The socks are brilliant. I’ve been wanting to try socks with heels for a while… it’s nowhere near warm enough for bare legs here yet, so another few months and I’ll rock this look!

    Or maybe I could do socks over tights? ideas, ideas – you’re so inspiring!

  24. Love how you styled this with the socks and shoes.
    It’s my goal in life to own as many dresses as possible too! 🙂

  25. you look picture-perfect. :o) I love your shoes.

  26. Adorable! I absolutely love that dress on you!!

  27. This outfit is so cute! Seriously, I love it.
    I was playing around on polyvore last night and every outfit was about as girly as possible (maybe why I especially love this outfit)

  28. Love the dress- I had a doll with a similar dress and socks (only with black mary janes)- her hair was also a lot like yours ( worn down, not in a pony tail). Funny-weird I guess, but brought a smile to my face nonetheless!!!

  29. LOVE the socks and shoes combo. So fresh and so much fun. This outfit makes me excited for Spring and dresses every single day. Thanks!

  30. very cute.

    Love it!

  31. Ooo love this! I think you styled it perfectly, now I want to wear socks with shoes!

  32. I have always admired the girls who do the cute socks with heels … haven’t been brave enough, myself. Yet. :o) I’m a relatively new reader and tore through many of your posts over the past couple of days. Beautiful looks! Keep them coming!

  33. That dress is adorable and I love the anchor necklace. This look is perfect on you! I wish it was warm enough here to not wear tights. I feel like as soon as it’s warm out I’m just going to be like some three year old girl running around with short dresses and no pants, twirling and jumping and not caring if anyone sees my underwear. My legs will just be too excited about freedom and sun!

  34. this is so cute!

  35. just found your blog and I can’t get enough. your style is awesome and wonderfully detailed. love the socks here! can’t wait to see more. would you like to trade links?

  36. Lovely. 🙂 You look adorable!

  37. This does seem like a very Keiko-inspired outfit, and I love it! So sweet.

  38. I love your necklace from Figs and Ginger! I just emailed the link of their store to my husband for Valentine’s Day gift ideas.

  39. I love this look, the dress is soo pretty! Great blog!!

  40. ADORABLE!! You look so pretty! the dress has such beautiful details, and the shoes are super cute!
