I happened to meet a writer from Modcloth at a party recently, and she told me about a feature they run on the Modlife blog called "My Favorite Find." The deal is, you send in a vintage or thrifted item that you feel lucky to have found. I sent in mine, a vintage dress scored in St. Paul, MN. Today it was posted: http://blog.modcloth.com/2009-08-26-mondrian-meets-maura#comments
I love Modcloth, and since it's Pittsburgh-based, to me it feels like a local boutique. I'm happy to be on their blog!
