The Modcloth Chain Letter Dress

So remember the days when a friend would send you some chain e-mail saying something along the lines of send this email to one hundred of your friends in fifteen minutes or else you will DIE! Well, when Starr from A Thought is the Blossom contacted me to be the second participant in Modcloth's Chain Letter dress swap, I was ecstatic and more than willing to live up to the stipulations of mailing it to another gal once I was finished wearing it.

A lot of you may have the concern that it may not fit all sizes, which is understandable, there is no way that one dress can fit multiple sizes, a la The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, but the dress is a size large and has an elastic back to provide ample space for different bust sizes and the hips are completely free. Normally, I wear a size small, and although the dress was a tad large on me, it fit rather well.

Enough about the size, the dress itself is a cute chambray fabric with an embroidered collar and pockets. I felt so Hansel and Gretel in it outside in the woods. Starr had such a good idea with passing around this Modcloth Dress to girls outside of the normal and regular (and oh so awesome) Modcloth crew and am so excited to have been able to participate in it. This is my first Modcloth item!

  9. Oh, I'm so happy to see it worked out for you! I think the fit looks fine, and I love the way you styled it with the socks and cute barrette. I have the same F21 necklace! Seems like we've got a lot of the same cheap accessories/shoes! I can't wait to see how Beatrice styles the dress. :)

  10. This looks perfect on you! It's probably good that I can't buy from modcloth in the uk, as I'm sure I'd spend all my money there!

  11. This is such a fantastic idea! I kind of like the over sized fit, since it lends itself to my interpretation of these photos which is of a girl borrowing her big sister's clothing and frolicking in the woods. And I mean that all in the best way. I can't see what Beatrice does with it she is so adorable!

  19. I love how you styled it Rosie and I agree with Rhiannon, I like it's a bit loose. Makes you look like a little girl.

    I can't wait to style it after Beatrice.
