This week, the retro fashion shopping site ModCloth made a public commitment to transparency in the media by signing a pledge let customers know if they Photoshop their models.
The Heroes Pledge for Advertisers, which is a campaign of the Brave Girls Alliance, asks companies to commit to informing users if they tangibly alter a model’s appearance in any way, reading: Keep reading »
ModCloth is now selling The Cheryl Dress, a garment named after the current recipient of my fangirl writer worship, Cheryl Strayed. “This sleek frock is perfect for a confident, successful woman like you, who has found wisdom in the journey and not the destination,” says the item description.
Or as Sugar, Cheryl Strayed’s advice-giving alter ego would put it, this dress is for the woman who wants to dress like a motherfucker.
I don’t know if you could wear this one for Pacific Crest Trail hike, but it’s certainly a tiny beautiful thing you could add to your wardrobe for the super affordable price of $49.99.
Non-Sequitur: I think having a dress named after you means you’ve made it in life. Or maybe a sandwich. New goal. [ModCloth]
These crazy colorful pants caught my eye on Pinterest, because really, how could they not? The multicolored kaleidoscopic print makes neon pink jeggings seem totally bland. They’re definitely visually interesting, but not exactly easy to wear. Tell us: would you dare to rock these fancy pants? [$90, Modcloth]
I can barely handle this ring. I mean, look at it. It’s a giant cocktail ring featuring a stoic bunny in front of an endless starry sky. Its official title is “Celestial Bunny Ring,” which sounds like the name of a really exotic sex toy or one of Frank Zappa’s children. If I owned this ring I would never need to read another book, because I would spend all day staring at it and daydreaming about bunnies in space. If some guy kneeled down in front of me on the street and presented me with this ring, I would marry him, no questions asked. This ring is just … awesome. [$24.99, Modcloth]
The product description for this ModCloth maxi dress begins as follows: “‘Every block of stone has a statue inside it, and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it,’ the great Michelangelo once said. Certainly, he wasn’t talking about this dress…” Luckily for us, our Man Panel certainly is talking about this dress — read on for their always candid, often hilarious, and sometimes poetic opinions… Keep reading »
It’s not so much that we’re opposed to this shirt–which reminds of us one of the most beloved television characters of all time, Dorothy Zbornak–it’s just that no one should ever pay full price for a shirt like this when so many languish in the thrift stores and vintage shops of America. If you can’t find a grandma-style sequined shirt at your Salvation Army, well fine, spend a hundred bucks on this Modcloth number. But really, with a little digging, we imagine you could rustle up a whole collection of these beaded beauties. [$97.99, Modcloth] Keep reading »
