In a Frenzy Over Fifties Style Full Skirts

So, by now I think most of us have been drooling over the GORGEOUS ladylike silhouettes in Louis Vuitton’s outta this world fall ad campaign. If you haven’t scoped it out yet, you can see a sneak peek over at lovely Rosebuds’ blogs Spry on the Wall and The Girl Who Stole the Eiffel Tower! I’m going to go out on a limb and say that most of us can only dream about owning one of the gorgeous dresses that are featured in the campaign.Β  No worries…Even if we can’t go that high end with our everyday wardrobe, we can still rock a perfectly pretty full skirted silhouette!

Modcloth just so happens to have a beautiful selection of fifties reminiscent frocks…and you won’t have to forgo your kiddo’s college fund in order to purchase one of them. And even if you do have a bank account that can take a Louis Vuitton kinda hit…I daresay you will be tempted by these Modcloth pretties too!

On a side note…You may have noticed my mention of the incredible designer Stacy Lomman in a couple of my past posts. What you may not have noticed yet is the amazing opportunity that you all have to be part of the fashion world. Stacy is raising funds to show at New York Fashion Week. I donated what I could. I only wish I could do more. But if we all come together and donate a little bit, think how much that would add up to. In these trying economic times, it does a soul good to see someone achieve their dreams! Stop by Ms. Lomman’s blog, Taffeta Darlings, and find out how YOU can help a dream come true! In case you need a little push, take a look at one of her designs. It’s crazy fabulous right? I told you!

    I love this style, though it is not flattering on me at all. I love helping someone make their dreams come true even more. How sweet!

  2. Jessica says

    I love the madeline or judy dress! Pretty sure I can pull that off- leave it to Louis to to be so classic and feminine! Guess that is why I love my Vuittons so much!

  3. Gracie says

    I’m loving the full skirts. I’m especially enamoured with the sweet temptations dress. Oh such loveliness.

    And I will check out the blog!

    That first dress is perfect! I just wish it wasn’t so expensive for modcloth to ship to the uk… i might have to go for a vuitton dress instead :p

  6. Maddy says

    *sigh* …I,too, love those LV ads!! But I adore the thrifty alternatives you found on Modcloth! The Hepcat dress is my favorite πŸ™‚

  7. Michelle says

    I’ve always rocked the full skirts, but sort of stopped in the last year or two since I felt like they were getting out of style, compared to sleek pencil skirts and other less flouncy styles. But now they are BACK and I am so excited!

  8. Diana says

    These dresses are all so gorgeous I honestly can’t choose a favorite one!! That illustration is fabulous! I’m headed over to the Taffeta Darlings blogspot now.

    Have a fabulous and beautiful day, darling!!

    I rented “she’s out of my league” last night and the leading lady wore dresses similar to these and I thought the entire time I watched it how cute she looked. I think these are adorable and so refreshing!

    SO darling. When I wear dresses like this, I feel a little bit like they aren’t entirely my style, but I love them on other people. I wish I could pull off the look.

  13. Katy Mary says

    I have always loved the 50s style! Sometimes I wish women still wore dresses like that everyday haha. I am dying over that perwinkle dress, it’s gorgeous!!

  17. Victoria says

    Love the LV style for a/w 2010/11. I’m so loving the 50s/60s style with a big nod to my fav series Mad Men. Love those last two sandy colour dresses.

  18. Nadette @ Eat, Read, Rant! says

    i really do like the 50s style dress. I have a black dress with a full skirt with a wrap around tie waste. it is so flattering, I just love that dress. I’ll stop by stacy’s blog. My college roomie was a fashion major, so I know her pain, and i hope I can help her out!

  19. Carrie says

    Modcloth is such a dream come true. They have the cutest things for such reasonable prices. Love.

    I have to zip over to Stacy’s and examine what this is all about…her sketch is amazing.


  20. Casee Marie says

    Oh, thank you so much for the mention, dear! That made my day.
    Gorgeous post. Modcloth is such a dream for their selection of retro dresses. I think they even have one called the Joan Party Dress (or something similar) that’s inspired by Christina Hendricks’s character on Mad Men. My wishlist over there is astounding!

    So excited for Miss Lomman! I hope it all works out for her. Absolutely going to check out her blog now. (:
