The beauty of Pinterest is discovering things you didn’t know existed.  I love that I find things in the home design world beyond the ubiquitous Pottery Barn, Crate and Barrel, West Elm, CB2 and Target.  And if you are at all distressed at the ‘Gap-ification’ of American clothing, then I highly encourage you to check out the fashion boards on Pinterest.  While Mid-Century MODERN LOVE doesn’t have a fashion board, after seeing the cool vintage-inspired offerings, I am thinking we need one.  (Dresses are currently pinned on the ‘Just really lovely things…’board.)

Specifically, I am enamoured at the moment with an online shop called ‘ModCloth‘.  From the site itself…

At ModCloth, the fashionable fun of vintage clothing and modern designs is always in season!  We welcome you to our wonderful world of retro clothing, accessories, handbags, and shoes, where fresh floral patterns and flirty designs flourish, and cute dresses, fun frocks, and vintage swimwear spring into style. ModCloth provides an exciting and engaging online shopping experience for everyone in search of cute clothing  designed with vintage fashion flair. Dozens of darling designs are added daily, so check back often for our perfect pieces of statement jewelry, our ravishingly retro dresses, and even more hot hits in indie clothing. We’re your sweetest source for women’s clothing and vintage-inspired fashion!

In the summer, I live in dresses.  I call it lazy dressing because I really don’t have to think much about it.  And most of these are SUPER affordable!  I also love the reviews from different body types, so I can see how it worked for other women like me, i.e. 40 years old having had two kids with a very less than perfect body!  The ones below are my favorites and are probably less ‘vintage-y’ than much of what they have available.  (Let’s just say these hips don’t need a flared skirt, if you know what I mean.)

Nonetheless, there is something here for everyone.  So whether you are a Joan, Megan, Betty or Peggy, you will find your style and size here.  And you can be fairly confident that no one will be wearing the same dress at your next party.

(I love the names of these dresses too.  It’s like the nailpolish naming convention applied to clothing!)
