Teenage Dream

I first saw this dress almost a year ago at Rachel Antonoff's presentation. The scene was a teenage dream; the models were placed around the house playing in sheet forts, making s'mores, and generally looking like they were having a blast. Even then in the crowded setting filled with lovely clothes and interesting people, this dress stood out to me. I wanted it bad. Months and months later it reached Modcloth's site and shortly after that it was in my grubby little paws. It's pretty much as fantastic on as I had imagined. I decided to play up the school girl style with loafer heels and a bow in my ponytail. This is definitely the sort of styling that makes me look much younger than I am, but occasionally I can't resist it.

  5. That outfit is very Sailor Moon. Shades of your high school uniform, too... intentional?

  9. @Cecelia, haha! it does remind me of a school uniform, but not my own b/c that one was blue & white & it was a sailor blouse & skirt...and I never would have been allowed to style it with tights or brown shoes. :)

  11. It feels very, very Madeleine (the French cartoon); it just needs a jaunty little straw hat, and you will be 100% lunching along the River Seine.

  21. I LOVE that dress. It looks so perfect on you! Love the styling with the beige tights and bag, too - it's a nice unexpected contrast from the bright red. So cute!

  22. OMG you look adorable in that outfit Rebecca!!! What do you think of white tights and flat black mary Janes or red tights with either silver or black ballet flats to go with the outfit?

  23. love the sailor collar. so cute.

  24. @Anonymous, I think there's a lot of styling options and I think what I personally would wear isn't the only way to dress. So, red tights to me seem slightly extreme, but it could work. White tights and black mary janes would be a very cute, very young look.

  25. I love this on you. I've always loved red on redheads (I am a red head as well). The blue, and red look so nautical. Great dress.

  26. Hi again Rebecca! I guess red tights would be too extreme. What about red shoes or tennis sneakers (without tights)would that look okay?

  30. I love it... It's funny, though it totally suit your style, I get a different feel from you with that dress. Almost like it changes you a bit. Must be enthusiasm! I also fell in love with that dress the minute I saw it, can't wait to wear it.
