Melodrama aside, wow. I haven't ordered much from Modcloth since I got pregnant with Alec, but their dresses have changed big time in the past three years. When I ordered from them regularly they had tons of 50s' or pin-up style dresses: short sleeves, low necklines, fitted bodice, A-line skirts that went over the knee. The skirts were probably supposed to be tea-length on the average female, but still covered knees on my taller self.

Yeah, they've entered the 60s while I wasn't looking. Lots of shift dresses, high necklines, sleeveless, and way too short for me to sit and bend over in. I'm trying to find something for Christmas events with very little luck. Boo.

Though I am the proud owner of a Peggy Carter shirt and a pair of Alexander Hamilton socks...

Have you checked out eshakti before? I like their style of dresses :)

They're one of those sort of custom sites, right?

The one woman I know who has bought from them said things run very short, but that was at least two years ago. I'll have to check them out. Thanks for the recommendation!

I second eshakti-- you can even pick your skirt length and input your height!

Yeah, it's a custom site. The things I've ordered from them weren't short. You put in your height and then choose how long you want it (knee length, etc.) I found the dress to be the perfect length on me!

It really is something when styles of dresses change over the years.

A Peggy Carter shirt sounds so cool!

Isn't it beautiful?! The aesthetic is just right.

And everything is 30% off right now...

Aw...I'd never ordered from Modcloth, but they were on my list. Now I guess I can skip it for a few decades.

It's still well worth checking out! They have plenty of casual dresses with the fifties silhouette, but I am in search of a formal. And I'm limited because of my size right now. If one is a 14 or under there are more options.

I also like supporting a Pittsburgh based business. It's like buying local for me.

Plus Peggy Carter shirt!
