"Ice Queen Dress"
"Temporary Secretary Dress"
"St. Mark's Square Dress"
Do you ever find that no matter what store you go to, whether it's high end or a second hand, you tend to go for the same style? For example, yesterday my sister sent me some jeans to look at for her on the computer and I am certain that she already has at least FIVE pair of the exact same jeans. Granted these jeans had a touch of red stitching, yet apart from that minor detail they look identical to all of her others.
And yet, I am wondering if I do the same thing. I was delighted to stumble upon this website, http://www.modcloth.com/store. The 50s and 60s styles are back. I keep seeing it pop up on TV (like Mad Men, I know, I know, I need to get over this show) and stores (there is even a "50s-Inspired Dresses" section at anthropologie).
And after a LONG morning, the idea of looking at vintage clothes seemed very appealing. This website originally started off selling real vintage items and now mainly designs vintage-looking items. They also name the clothes. These are some of my favorites but I'm wondering what it means that the only two dresses I put in my cart (which really means nothing) are called "The Cable Car Tour Dress" (boring) and "The Ice Queen Dress" (surely that doesn't mean anything). And I am also starting to think I already have something like both of these in my closet? Hmmm...
