Ah ShoeMint. They make shoes I truly cannot resist. Meet Lorena, one of this month’s selections. Including shipping, my bill came to just shy of $100 CA ($79.98 in the US with free US shipping). Also available in Blush with black trim, Lorena is made from suede and has a 5″ heel with 1″ platform (ruh roh). There is a zipper up the back and lace-up front. I see this well-styled with some of my vintage flavoured dresses.

Chloe Blouse Black | Bettie Page Clothing.

Here’s a breezy chiffon blouse for those hazy days. A front button-down style with gathered sleeves is a wardrobe staple I love. Available in black with white dots or pink with black dots in sizes extra-small to 4X. $53 US on Bettie Page Clothing.

A Pretty Dress with an Unpretty News Update Link

Ric Rac Dress in Clay | Pinup Girl Clothing.

While the photo is underwhelming for me, the dress luckily stands out for me. Summer hasn’t started here yet and I’m desperate for some heat on my skin. This one reminded me of hot muggy days in the office, it seems so far away I keep reaching for fashion and shoes that are heat-friendly. The Ric Rac Dress in Clay is on Pinup Girl for $92 US in sizes Extra-Small to Extra-Large. Shipping is a whopping and unreasonable $39.92 US to Canada. I hope it’s cheaper for American shoppers.

Yesterday day I posted a news story in its early stages. The emerging story is disturbing and graphic. For those who are curious about the developing gong show and have a strong stomach, here’s a MSN news story reposted from The Canadian Press. I’m not going there blog-wise and I’m dropping this story at this point.

Winsome Style Dress

Winsome Style Dress | Mod Retro Vintage Dresses |

I love this dress even though it’s a completely inappropriate colour for both my life and work. The red is a great contrast, but the white is a disaster waiting to happen for this worker in a mineral exploration and camp services business. I would’ve jumped on this had it been in black or navy and red. $99.99 on ModCloth.

Elegance at Its Best Full Slip in Peach | Mod Retro Vintage Underwear |

I really need one of these. Everyone’s been there, but a light source shining behind me resulting in a see-through dress sucks. Not as bad as the time I walked four blocks down Main Street with my skirt tucked into my pantyhose, but still a malfunction. The four blocks down a busy summer street with my ass hanging out finally ended when a kind passerby clued me in.

Available on Modcloth in ivory, peach, and black for $47 US. The sizes range from an extra-small to 3X.

An Upcoming Covet

Posted on

This pretty frock is upcoming on Dress911. I think the back detail is what caught my attention, it’s open and pretty. My scary acne scars on my back from my teen years are finally fading and I’m beginning to feel comfortable with a partially open back. Any thoughts from anyone on whether or not a large busted woman can get away with draping around the chest area? I’m tempted to try. The belted waist and pleating will help me avoid the boxy look I hate with my current body type. If I’m not careful, I can look like a rectangle.

No price or sizes are listed until it becomes available in June.

(Snow again today, boo!)

River Rocks Dress

River Rocks Dress | Mod Retro Vintage Dresses |

Here’s a dress that’s excellent to wear to work on a hot day. Our office is unair-conditioned and the brief summer season can be torturous. At $47.99 US and an unbelievably cheap shipping charge of $4.05 US to Canada, I’m actively debating whether to order another dress. Can be found on ModCloth.
