What to Wear: Mia Moda

This week's what to wear post features a lovely boutique in Vestavia Hills, AL.  Mia Moda has a friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere.  They offer funky and affordable clothing that appeals to a wide range of ages and styles.  We approached them about working with us a few weeks ago, and they were happy to help inspire Sidewalk looks.  Ben, one of the buyers, has a great eye for detail and created a fabulous mix of styles for us.  He chose to pair the outfits together as "friends", which we loved!  Each outfit complements the style next to it, making it easy for friends to get ready together and look great for Sidewalk.  Check it out:

Casual day looks:  This gray top and patterned pant would be good to wear when hopping from film to film.  It is relaxed and comfortable enough to be in all day.  The off the shoulder look keeps it extra casual.  Next, this denim look is cute and trendy.  Those jeans are definitely a stand out piece!  We fell in love with the jacket.  A denim blazer - who doesn't want that?!  The turquoise and gold necklace is a good way to add a pop of color without taking away from the rest of the outfit. 

Top - Forgotten Grace $39.00
Pants - Ara $39.00
Belt - Golden Stella $18.00
Necklace - Golden Stella $24.00

Blazer - Lucy Paris $69.00
Shirt - White Crow $49.00
Jeans - Kut $89.00
Necklace - Golden Stella $29.00

Dressy casual day looks:  We really like these two outfits next to one another.  The patterns play off each other nicely, and the white helps bring the two together.  Again, we love a great patterned pant!  These are light weight and adorable and can be paired with a lot of different shirts.  The romper is such a great combination of colors, and the pattern is bold but not too busy.  Long layered necklaces complete each look.

 Patterned pant:
Top - Miss Me $49.00
Pants - Ara $39.00
Gold statement necklace - Golden Stella $29.00
Beaded necklace - Julio Dallas $119.00

Romper - C Luce $69.00
Gold tassel necklace - $24.00
Oval necklace - $29.00
Black horn necklace - $29.00

Night looks:  These dresses are so cute!  The silver details on the orange dress help bring structure to the shape while adding some visual interest.  Pairing a belt with the red dress is a cute way to break up the pattern and keep it from being overly dressy.  The necklace is made by Made in the Deep South, which is a local Birmingham company.  They use old chandelier pieces with vintage beads and chains to make each necklace.  It is a good statement piece and could be worn with a variety of dresses and blouses.

Dress - C Luce $49.00

Dress - Ark and Co $69.00
Belt - Golden Stella $18.00
Necklace - Made in the Deep South $248.00

Mia Moda sells the BEST bags by Old Clutch, a cool company based in Alabama.  Local leathers and vintage pendants are used to make each bag beautifully unique.  They are large and durable and can carry anything you might need for the festival.  We are absolutely in love with these bags (and want all of them!)

Old Clutch $189.00

Old Clutch $289.00

Old Clutch $259.00

Stop by Mia Moda and have a look at all the great stuff they have to wear to Sidewalk.  We had a blast working with them and know you will enjoy your shopping experience there.  Check back next week for the next what to wear installment!  Stay chic.
