    One day, I will own a yacht. And when that day comes, I will throw a party on the yacht so that I can rub my success in all my friends' faces. And to that party, I will wear this dotingly adorable dress, now in a ModCloth exclusive colorway! It will be the greatest party of everyone's lives. T-Pain will make a guest appearance, and we'll dine on a lavishly prepared buffet piled high with lobster rolls (caught fresh that morning, of course) and blueberry pie (homemade, obviously). Under the warm summer sun, we'll drift leisurely along the Maine coastline, and my A-line skirt will dance ever so slightly in the breeze. I love the details of this sweet peach cotton frock, which include a full lining, flattering front pleats, a hidden back zipper, folded straps, and a willow waistband to give definition to my midsection. Until my yachting days arrive, however, I'll wear this dress on the rare occasions I make it back home to New England, or more often when I try out new brunch places on the weekends. Paired with woven wedges and a nautical-inspired pendant, I'll have a high fashion style that's inching me closer to the high seas (at least, I like to think so). -Sarah, Fashion Writer
