I’ve admired vintage-inspired designs ever since I was young. I could never say no to a circle skirt, monogrammed sweater, or a dress that made me feel like I stepped out of Hollywood’s golden age. There’s a fun flair that brings back waves of nostalgia, but it could be hard to try out the classic silhouettes if you’re larger than a size 10.
Modcloth’s blend of vintage and contemporary (with a sweet splash of kitsch) has long been a favorite of mine, and so I was over the moon when the company expanded its size range up to 4x a year ago. I was even more excited to find out they partnered with plus size blogger Nicolette Mason for a collection inspired by retro silhouettes with a touch of modern rocker appeal.
While I adored every piece in the collection, my eyes were instantly drawn to the dressed named after Mason herself. The baby pink fit-and-flare comes covered in soft velvet dots as a fun play on textures, and even has a petticoat to help fluff out the skirt. Slipping into this little number instantly had me kicking up my heels and twirling to my heart’s content. I can easily take the dress from desk to drinks and any other occasion on my social calendar. Regardless of where I step out in this fancy frock, I know I look pretty in pink! – Valis Vicenty
