Remember when I asked you all to help me pick out what to get with my Modcloth giftcard? Well, I ended up purchasing the mod tunic (the blue thing). I was planning to do a big outfit post with it, and reveal it at that time. Well, I’m sending it back, so I can’t really do that.
I already reviewed the product on the Modcloth site, so they’re aware. This is how I described it to Joe, “it would be a great top. It needs to be cut off at the waist.” And I believe that’s true. It’s a poly/rayon blend, so it hugs EVERY curve and fat roll you don’t want to share with the world. And, the truth is, I’m not a big girl. I wear a M-L tops and a size 8 pants. So I’m not saying this because I purchased a vanity size that doesn’t fit. I purchased a large. And it fit like a large. The major problem is the length and the fabric. And that’s not Modcloth’s fault. They purchase the clothes from designers. They have buyers who purchase certain pieces based on samples. The sample might’ve been impeccable, modeled on someone 5’10 and 100 pounds. That’s not real life, or real women.
But, anyway, to show you the truth, I put the dress on and took some photos. I haven’t edited these at all, and yes, I look awful (minus the chest area. That part looks decent).
So that’s my story. I’ve already packaged up the dress and am going to send it back. Modcloth has a great return policy, because for every lady like me that doesn’t look good in a dress like this, there are always a few that it does. I’m now trying to decide between the other items. I’ll let you know what I decide on, or if I pick something else entirely.
