Hello, Monday! I have to share the newest offering from Ovate with you, because it’s beautiful and is giving me full on “ready for fall on the seacoast” vibes.

ModCloth has finally introduced its first-ever namesake label, 100% inspired by you and me.

To create this line of versatile separates and dresses, the folks at ModCloth looked at shopper feedback to determine all the must-have details (so many pockets!), pored over popular trends on Style Gallery, and did three times the typical amount of fittings to ensure a fabulous, consistent fit. The pieces in this collection are available in sizes XS through 4X!

I’ve been a fan of ModCloth since college, and it’s been wonderful watching this brand grow. This new line has been a long time coming, and I am thankful that there are so many grown-up pieces and work wear in the mix. Lots of navy and cranberry, too, and some great neutrals! For people that actually like a little color, there’s plenty of it (and some more graphic prints, as well). I know I personally tend to lean toward the darker side of the spectrum!

You can shop the line here. My personal favorites from the collection are below.

ModCloth's New Namesake Label

Lighthearted Lecture dress in Cranberry / Profound Pizzazz skirt

A wrap dress with pockets? How more perfect can you be? As for that skirt, I have always had an affinity for upholstery and wallpaper-inspired florals. I don’t think I’m the only one. Also, more pockets. Yes.

ModCloth's New Namesake Label

Overnight Oats top in Chia / Casual Composure cardigan

The jersey tank is available in three colors. I love the crochet detailing. Always. Of all the pieces I’ve featured here, I am probably most likely to buy the two above! Income pending.

ModCloth's New Namesake Label

Intern of Fate skirt in Navy / Trusty Travel top in Grey

Two great basics. The navy wool skirt was actually the first piece that caught my eye in this collection. I think maybe my “professional museum attire” brain has replaced my “summer dark bohemian wear” brain now that it’s August. I don’t know. I do know that my New England heart likes wool. PS do not listen to anyone who tells you that you can’t wear black and navy together.

Check out the full ModCloth label line! Which pieces are your favorites?

This spread from Palm maison is actually from way back in February, but I’ve only just recently stumbled across the link while looking for other Japanese fashion-related things, as seems to be the way with the internet. I am happy that I remembered to bookmark it.

I love the light layered looks featured in this shoot. Everything looks so comfortable, and I always like to see black in a spring or summer collection. The original post can be found here.

Why Fair Trade?

Fair Trade:

  • provides a living wage for marginalized producers
  • empowers women and minorities
  • supports conservation
  • promotes sustainability
  • does not support forced labor or child labor

By spending a few dollars more on Fair Trade, you are ensuring that the producer of your product receives about 20% more compensation than they would under standard trade practice. You are investing in communities that will invest in themselves.

Support local businesses and craftspeople, too. Shop handmade. Shop products made in the USA. People matter.
