Modern Millie

Modern Millie Mod Floral Dress Ruffle Sleeve Tie Neck Top in Burgundy

Who doesn't love a fun outfit to combat those soon-to-be winter blues?  I've teamed up with Modern Millie, a woman-owned small brick and mortar shop in Salem, Massachusetts with an online store as well.  They offer all kinds of vintage inspired clothing, including plus sized and kids clothing, and showcase their flair for fashion with their one-of-a-kind styling and accessorizing.  Read more about this amazing business and my outfit below!

Get to know more about Modern Millie here:


"Christine opened Modern Millie about 13 years ago when we sold only True Vintage and Modern Consignment, and Laura came on board just a few months later! Over the years we have grown, changed, and have evolved into a mainly vintage-inspired clothing store with a carefully curated true vintage selection. We choose pieces for our store that we love to wear, that still have that vintage feel, designed by people we love to support. As a small independent business, we love carrying brands who are either small themselves or who started small and we love to share their stories with our customers!

Though we carry many of the same brands as other vintage-inspired stores, we consider ourselves to be unique in the way we style our pieces to make them our own! We love print-mixing, layering, winterizing our sleeveless dresses with tie neck blouses and we use lots of color! Winter in New England is long, cold and void of color, so we do what we can with fashion to keep things cute cozy and lively! We love to inspire our customers, and encourage them to express themselves through fashion, take risks and most importantly feel beautiful in what they are wearing!"

I literally do not let anyone pick my outfits, but when Laura offered to style me personally I couldn't say no!  She picked this amazing fall floral dress and paired it with this flutter sleeved bow tie top that matches perfectly.  I love this outfit so much!  I'm wearing a small in both pieces and I find that they fit quite well.  I did have to belt the dress for my waist, but only because I'm a small in the bust and an extra small in the waist (I have to do it all the time).  The dress is made from a soft but sturdy stretch cotton and features a gorgeous full skirt complete with pockets.  The top has a chiffon-like weight and looks wonderful on its own or layered under this beautiful dress.  I added some extra flair with my beret and brooch and I'm pretty sure this is one of my new favorite outfits.  Thank you Modern Millie!

Even if you're not local to Salem (like myself), you can still shop with them online and find all of their amazing styling tips and tricks on their Instagram.  Make sure to give them a follow HERE and shop their online store HERE!
