Modcloth Matinee

It's happened to the best of us - if you shop at cheap chic retailers like H&M or Zara, then you've probably been out somewhere and noticed someone else wearing an item that you own. Or maybe you attented a small party and realized with horror that you wore the same frock as another attendee. So how do you overcome this inevitable result of mass retailing? Well, I contend that the best way to make an outfit your own is to personalize it in some way. Unique accessories, funky shoes, vintage gems, or a bold handbag, for example. Browsing for such merchandise, I recently uncovered an impressive selection of stylish vintage and indie items at Modcloth that will ensure you won't look like anybody else. Their vintage clothing, girly gifts, and indie designs are the perfect solution to creating your unique style. In the spirit of all things summer, I've created a breezy, feminine look from Modcloth's online store. This is something I'd wear for a lunch date or for catching a matinee.
