Review: Modern Vintage Boutique


Today I'm taking a break from my own closet to do a little trying-on session! These are all clothes from one of my favorite online boutiques, Modern Vintage Boutique. Everything is really affordable, and I had so much fun trying it all on. Check out the captions to find out which item I loved the most and tell me - which one is your favorite?

Striped dress, $49    
Turquoise necklace, $32
White straw wedge, $49

I loved this striped dress, especially the cut-out back! I was excited about the length, and you can just barely see a shorter slip showing underneath. I was also "pumped" (bad pun) about these shoes; they went with absolutely everything!


I dig these cute dresses with cut-out shoulder details. Looks great with a blazer and a colorful belt, but I also love the brown belt it comes with (right). The length was a tad short, so I might size up on these!


This dress was my favorite! The fabric is somewhat sheer, but the loose fit keeps you from being able to see anything you shouldn't. It could do double duty for a nice dinner and as a beach coverup.

White dress with belt, $64
Turquoise necklace, $32
White straw wedge, $49

These are my favorite kind of shirts! They look great with shorts, skinny jeans, or skirts alike, and these colors would be great for colorblocking. The fabric quality is comparable to LOFT shirts, and I love the shoulder details. Total win.

Turquoise top, $42
Yellow top, $42
White shorts (my own)
White straw wedge, $49
Turquoise necklace, $32

* Everything I'm wearing from the boutique was borrowed (not my own), and is a size Small. This post is brought to you by Modern Vintage Boutique, however all editorial choices and opinions are my own. ;-)

  15. The pink dress is my favorite. Perfect color and I love the rounded hem!

  16. Great post! The white dress is my absolute favorite! It is so flattering on you and the way you styled it is perfection! The belt and shoes go perfect with the dress.
    The dresses with the cut out shoulders are a little too colorful for my taste. For example, I think the blue dress would look a lot nicer if you skipped the belt and chose a white blazer instead of the yellow one. But that's just me, I think a little pop of color is great when paired with lots of neutrals and not so much color.
    The first dress, although it's a little out there, is great, too. I love the cut out in the back and it looks great on you. The necklace was a good choice as well.
    Anyway, the white dress is the best look. You should so buy it ;-) Or have you already?

  17. White dress is hands down my favorite of the choices.  super effortless look but super chic and flirty!

    I love the orange stripe dress! So fun for the summer.

    I have been on the hunt for a yellow blazer. The website does not describe the fabric. It looks like linen?

  23. Love those shoes as well! Great collection. I have that peek-a-boo shoulder dress in black and the belt it comes with is great, it goes with everything!

    It's 60% Ramie, 40% cotton. Looks and feels almost like a thin linen.

  25. Is there by any chance a discount code their offering if we order any of the items? I noticed there was no phone number to call and inquire about it. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I am swooning over the turquoise and yellow top! Oh my, I may need to purchase these! The white dress looks fantastic on you with your olive skin also... <3

  30. Just a suggestion...  Perhaps you should pull the sheet behind you tighter so that there aren't any wrinkles in it.  It's a little distracting in your photos.

    in LOVE with that necklace, love how you mixed it with so many bright colors. Reminds me of the JCrew bubble necklace but more wearable since it's a bit smaller.

  36. Cute outfits!!  To get a reference for size, how tall are you?  Also, is Modern Vintage Boutique offering a discount to your readers?  I'm not sure if I missed a promo code.  Thanks!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. This is a random question- when you are wearing multiple bracelets with your watch, do they scratch the watch? 

    ReplyDelete
  38. everything here is so cute, a classic set of staples!

  39. I see a shadow on the striped dress - is is lined or are you having to wear a slip?  Very cute stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  40. The photo on the website looks different than yours. How long is the top portion of the 2-fer?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hi J, what kind of fabric are this dresses? and the shirts? i loooove those colors!

  42. You always know what colors to pair together & really make your accessories pop! The striped dress is our favorite! For more fresh, affordable looks, check out our store site: www.ladiesoutfitters.com!

  43. Do you typically wear slips under jersey fabric dresses? I have been looking for a solution to avoid VPL but haven't tried slips (they seem very old fashioned to me). Also, are there any fabrics or brands that I should look for when buying a slip? Thanks.

  44. Those shoes! Love them so much. My fave is the striped dress but all look great!

    Carly, I don't own any slips at the moment but I was actually just thinking about buying one the other day. I tend to just stay away from any dress tight enough that there would be a VPL situation. I also found some lace tanga underwear at Victoria's Secret that lay really flat on your bum, so I use those if I wear something that is borderline VPL. I'll be sure to share the info if I wind up doing some slip research though!

    Nicki, no I've never had my bracelets scrape my watch! The bottom/inside of my wrist is a little scratched from me resting my hands on tables, my desk, etc. though.

  55. I love the turquoise and pink dresses!  The turquoise dress with the yellow blazer would be super cute to wear to class or a chapter meeting!

    ReplyDelete
  56. The white one is also my favorite - it can be worn many different ways and for different occasions (except weddings...which is sad since I always try to buy dresses I can wear to go all the weddings this summer!)

    ReplyDelete
  57. I have to agree with you J about the white dress.  That whole ensemble is just perfect.  I think the orange dress with the stripes wins it for me though.  The angled stripes are fun and flattering, and the orange with the turquoise is just perfectly fun!

    ReplyDelete
  58. J what is the brand of that orange striped dress? So cute!

    ReplyDelete
  59. The white dress is to die for. You have a lot of varieties here that helps me be inspired, I love your posts!

    Romina, the shirts are polyester. Most of the dresses are a poly/cotton blend.

  62. jseverydayfashionJune 14, 2012 at 12:39 AM

    Andi, no that is part of the dress. That's what I was trying to explain in my review - you can see the shorter piece inside ever so slightly.

    ReplyDelete
  63. jseverydayfashionJune 14, 2012 at 12:40 AM

    I tried to measure it (I'm sending the box back tomorrow) and the orange part appears to be about 15 inches.

  64.  Nice short skirts over there, here got apparel has some nice kinds of ladies shorts skirts are in wholesale rate to shop http://www.gotapparel.com/

  65. Although I really like the tangerine-and-white-with-turquoise color combination of the striped dress............ (and also, by the way, your orange-red dress and bright blue cardigan of 5/28/12;  plus your orange-red skirt and Caribbean blue shirt of 6/12/12, too!!)............ the white dress with the cognac belt is simply  *s.t.u.n.n.i.n.g.*  on you!!   

    I just love how you've styled the white dress here;  and............ with it actually being kind of a "BLANK white canvas"............ if you ever buy a solid white (or Winter white) dress with sleeves............ YOU'D probably............ with your  a.m.a.z.i.n.g.  creativity/ingenuity, J. ............ be able to style it in 100+ (or so) ways, for sure!!

    ReplyDelete
  66. I totally missed you discussing it when I skimmed through.

    ReplyDelete
  67. While you obviously look STUNNING in the white dress, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the first photo with the striped dress. I would love to own that!! It's great for summer and has unique accents (such as the twisted back) to really stand out.

    ReplyDelete
  68. jseverydayfashionJune 14, 2012 at 10:56 AM

    No worries! That part was hard to explain! I don't think I've ever seen a dress with a shorter lining inside like that.

    ReplyDelete
  69. What are your bracelets made out of? I just got a really nice Marc Jacobs watch, and I really want to wear bracelets on the same wrist. The first day I wore my watch the bracelet I had on scratched the knob used to change the time. I am very sad and confused. Is there suggestions or tricks to what types of bracelets to wear to not scratch the watch? Or I do I just have really bad luck?

  72. jseverydayfashionJune 14, 2012 at 12:06 PM

    Nicki, I'm not sure if it is what the bracelets are made of, or what the watch is made of? I wear pretty much all of the same Stella & Dot bracelets everyday. Not sure the exact kind of metal, but you can see them in my daily posts (I link to them in the caption). Nothing crazy heavy, not sure if the weight of the bracelets has something to do with it, too?

    ReplyDelete
  73. I love them all!! How tall are you? I am 6'1" and feel like most of those dresses would be way too short on me :(

  78. I am surprised you would provide a review to a company with such a dubious reputation. Their products are made in China with the least amount of quality. I recently ordered 3 sweaters online and couldn't be more dissatisfied with the products. All 3 sweaters had discolored threads, dust and hair on the clothing and holes in the sweaters. One sweater was so thinly made; you could take a picture through the clothing. Buyer be aware of this company.
