Mod & Soul

August 2016

Hello! I think I've discovered my new favorite shop in Richmond: Mod & Soul. Mod & Soul is located on Broad Street, practically across the street from Blue Bones Vintage. Mod & Soul, a fashion boutique, focuses on a blend of modern trendy and classic pieces for the sophisticated, put-together woman. If you're ever in the Richmond area, I'd highly recommend a trip to Mod & Soul!

I popped by the shop on my birthday a couple weeks ago to check it out after hearing so much positive buzz about the shop on Instagram. I was instantly impressed by the store's visually appealing interior and sophisticated atmosphere upon entering the store. Almost all of the clothing, shoes and accessories felt like they were calling out my name but there were two pieces that grabbed my heart more than any others: a classy black top and the chic dress that I'm wearing above.

The versatile print, neutral colors and fashionable silhouette all drew me to the dress above. And I can effortlessly transition the dress from work to play. For about $60, the dress is a little pricier than most of the items in my wardrobe but it was certainly worth it.

For this look, I played around with modern simplicity by styling several pieces of golden jewelry with the look. I emphasized the neckline of the dress with a short golden "Tori" necklace and a longer golden tassel necklace. Golden rings, earrings and a masculine watch all contributed to the style of this look. A simple gray purse and matching nails perfected the look.

Boho Beauty

August 2016

Hello! Recently, I scored this pretty, free-spirited dress at Ashby in Carytown for less than $20. I was immediately attracted to the breezy, bohemian silhouette, unique abstract print and muted colors. For this look, I styled a brown pair of lace-up wedges and vintage brown Coach bag with the boho dress. I kept accessories simple, sticking with only a chic golden necklace and fab Givenchy sunglasses. A swipe of purple lipstick completed the look. 

Printed dress: H&M via Ashby
Lace-up wedges: c/o Musse and Cloud
Leather bag: Vintage Coach
Sunglasses: Givenchy c/o SmartBuyGlasses
Purple lipstick: ColourPop
Necklace: Studio Soho
