Look Book: Rose to the Occasion

This Renaissance of Headwear by Ryu is a style revival of timeless proportions. A bouquet of orchid and wisteria blooms next to a fruitful bunch of plum and eggplant-colored petals. An onyx ribbon boldly streams from the arrangement for you to gracefully tie as you see fit. Its construction allows for wearable versatility. Secure the ribbon under your hair for a quaint and cute 50's look for the Sadie Hawkins dance or wear to the side of your crown and tie a bow under your chin for a Bohemian Paris look circa 1889. Pair with a fitted black cocktail dress and render your observers spellbound. Any way you don this piquant piece, you'll be adding to an already spicy style.

Qu'est-ce que c'est? It's a fabulous fuschia Romantique Top brimming over with frills and lace! Drawing inspirations from both the Victorian era and the 1940's, this sheer and opulent blouse is adorned with lace cuffs, lacey frills running down the placket, cloth-covered buttons, and a peekaboo lace panel on the back. As much sophisticated lady as it is sexy secretary, this button up would be the perfect addition to any tres chic ensemble. Dress it up with a little black skirt, sheer black tights, and flirty pumps for a classy evening on the town, or dress it down with skinny jeans and cute flats for a romantic afternoon with your sweetheart.

These haute, hot Rojas Fiona Pants are as stunning as any Celtic beauty. The paper bag waist, poshly paneled pleating, tie-able sash, hidden back zip, and lovely loose fit will put you at the height of fashion. You can hold your claddagh keepsake safe inside the concealed hip pockets and adjust the snugness of each leg's tapered hem with the ankle zippers. Just pair these polished pants with a nautical red and white striped top, a charming cardi, a pretty pendant, and walkable wedges for a lovely fair isle look.

If you think there's no good accessory to dress up your black tee, stonewashed jeans, and pyramid-studded flats, then tut-tut! You just need to open your eyes! Just look at this royally regal Cutenkhamun Necklace. Rich in sparkling swirls of gold piping on a background of night, and held intact by an adjustable golden chain, this necklace will be your amulet against awful accessorizing. Just fasten its clasp around your neck, and everyone, from your best bud to your 'mummy,' will agree that this necklace makes you the 'pharohest' of them all!

All around the ModCloth office, one Mod Dog chases another. They take a nap and dream of shoes, while we pop these All Around the Mulberry Heels onto our feet. Though the Mod Dogs may be sleepy, these "berry" beautiful oxfords have got us all riled up! So much so, that we couldn't resist getting a pair for ourselves! Their cut-out upper with dainty laces is perfect for charcoal tights, and their pointed toe and cone heel also make them ideal for dressing up a pair of jeans. Made unique by a slant rhyme of texture that juxtaposes faux leather with velvety material, and livened up by a sweet and tart color, one look at these heels and you too will be in hot pursuit of catching a pair before they disappear!
