Mod Cloth

Last night I met up with some girlfriends who I haven't seen in months. Originally, we all met at 'playgroup' when our children were babies. Most of us now have school age children and there's only a few left with babies who still meet regularly. It was so good to see them.
Claire was wearing the cutest frock. She got it from a US based website called Mod Cloth. Do yourself  a favour and click here to have a look.
It has some ridiculously adorable bits and pieces, and as if you needed another one, it's a great time-waster.
Why I just lost 30 minutes of my own life - just then!
They sell real vintage clothes like this jacket. It's called the Oh Snow Cozy Jacket, and had I been faster I could have bought it for $55. Thrift shopping in Australia can be less than exciting. A little known fact is that just because something is old-ish, it does not mean that it is desirable, nor valuable. I could have left a few notes around the place saying similar when I visited Woolloongabba Antiques on the weekend.
Back to Mod Cloth. Most of their things are new, but in a vintage style, if you're with me. You can also go into the samples section and vote for what items you want to go into production - very novel.
Here's a tiny sample of their wares. This is the Cartography Dress and it can be had for $140, although at the moment it's sold out. You can leave your name though and they'll let you know when it's back in stock.
The Made in the Shade dress will set you back a mere $109, and this is US$, so it will actually be a bit less.
Blogging Molly Dress below, $92.
Koi to the World Dress, $158.

And if you've just about had it up to here with the kitsch fabrics, The Evening Unfolds Dress is a little more classic, $130.
So there you have it. Very Anthropologie-like I think. I intend to pick myself up a little something.
Frugal February is not really working for us here. We have two birthdays in February for one thing, and now our television is on the blink and we've had to buy a new one. I'm hoping for a Meagre March or something along those lines.
