Hep...Kat (a Modcloth Purchase)

Hi there!

Just a borin' little ol' OOTD post here.

So I have a confession: I'm a Modcloth n00b.

I've looked at their dresses many times in the past, but I've always been a bit leery when it comes to ordering due to sizing issues and whatnot. Their stuff just seems so teeny tiny!

However, the Hepcat Dress is a particular dress I'd been eying from afar (haha, it's a shirtdress - of course I like it!), but they always seemed to be out of my size. So when the size Medium popped back in stock awhile back, I decided to take the plunge.

I've already worn it twice so far, and I like it...

worn with last year's Diamond Stitch Skimmers

worn with:
Anthro Precious Materials Cardigan
(totally different but totally cute cardigan here)
Target Merona "Myka" Suede Wedges in Black
(similar here, here and here)
Target Headband (similar here)

(apologies for the weird lighting in the photos...didn't have a chance to tinker with white balance before I uploaded, and then I got lazy and...yeah.)

(...and don't even talk to me about the soft focus. GAH.)


Anyway, I found the ordering process from Modcloth quite nice. When my package arrived, they included a cute little headband with my order as "thanks." That was a fun surprise!

While I miss having the pockets on this dress (I'm so spoiled by other shirtdresses, aren't I?), I find I've been such a sucker for polka dots lately. In fact, if I wanted to make an outfit challenge for myself, I should see how many consecutive days I could force myself to wear polka dots.


I bet I could go for awhile.

Okee doke, y'all. Happy Thursday, and thanks so much for reading!


  1. The dress looks great on you, and fits well.  Speaking of polka dress, I found this Old Navy dress too cute to pass (especially the price).  I got additional 30% off on the top banner of Old Navy site from my computer.  Am waiting for it to arrive.  Hopefully, it won't disappoint.

  2. I love it with the Anthro cardigan!  I've only ordered from Modcloth once and it was a very good experience.

    Ugh...why do you have to look so darn cute in everything?!? Now I want this dress! :)

  4. cute dress!! I agree with the sizing for Mod Cloth though....kind of unpredictable. But I think you scored on this one!!

  5. You should totally do the polka dot challenge! Lovely dress

  6. Very cute purchase! I like the little bow belt and the full skirt. I ordered from ModCloth once, and the dress was cute but a little too short (and I'm just a little over 5 feet tall). But they do carry a lot of pretty things. :)

  7. I love that dress with the precious metals cardi! You look great, Kathryn!

    Thank you! I find a lot of their dresses too short for me, but I was very happy to have this one work out!

    Haha I should try and map out some outfits and see how I do! Thanks! =)

    Back at ya, babe! It'd just be a lot easier if we just lived closer together and could share a closet! =)
