I've written about Modcloth.com before, as I just ADORE this online store. I've ordered several cute, Anthropologie-esque items from them, and have been pleased with every purchase. Great prices and decent quality, for the most part. Some people complain about the fit of the garments, but I've honestly never had any issues.
I came across this amazing little number while browsing their site this evening. Of course, like most of their cutest items, this one is currently sold out, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they restock it. I've seen the dress before in another color/pattern, so I think I have a decent shot of bringing this one home someday.
Isn't it just adorable? The product name is called the About the Author Dress and at just under $53, it's a very affordable alternative to the higher priced dresses sold at Anthropologie.
I love the ruffled bodice and fit-and-flare shape of this dress. Looks like it would be super flattering on a wide variety of body types, nipping gently at the waist while gracefully flaring out at the hips to camouflage any trouble areas.
Please, ModCloth, bring this one back in stock so more of us can enjoy it!
