The Modern Bobbi Dress seems strangely apropos after a longer than it should have been conversation about bobby pins last night. My friend theorized that bobby pins were named for their relation to bobbed hair cuts. Bobby Pins are so called because of their inventor Robert Pinney, I love that. This dress however, I've decided is most probably named after Bobby Soxers, you know the girls--love Old Blue Eyes (Frank Sinatra), poodle skirts and rolling socks to their ankles; hate when the sock hop is over. And since its modern it has replaced a y with an i. Either way, whatever the dress was named for, it is certainly adorable. To quote the ModCloth website: "...enjoy its scoop neck, princess seams, discreet cummerbund, and exquisite cap sleeves." It's a perfect Thanksgiving dress, not only will you be giving thanks for finding this dress, but there are pockets for hiding turkey legs, or handfuls of stuffing, or you know, more normal things like your cell phone. But whatever, to each her own [pocketful of sweet potatoes].
