The first thing I thought when I put this dress on was “OMG where has this dress been all my life?” That was yesterday. And today, when I wore it out to go meet Sydney and Diya for lunch, I was still thinking that…this dress is amazing! It’s impossible to capture all the details properly with my camera and in my kitchen, but you can get a little better idea of how the dress looks on Vogel10’s site.
The dress is washed silk, with picot edges and an asymmetrical hem. It’s not a wrap dress really, more of a loose shift, with a self-tie at the waist, and since it’s loose, I took a size 2 (I’m usually a size 12). You can wear it with either the v-neck or the scoop neck in the front – I don’t have a preference, I just wore it today with the scoop-neck in the front because that’s the way it went over my head! When you wear it with the scoop-neck towards the front you get a pretty straight hem on the front, and an asymmetric hem in the back (you can see this in the picture), but when you wear the v-neck towards the front, you end up with more of a handkerchief-hem in the front (which is fabulous). So you can totally change the look of the dress depending on which way you wear it…
I wish I’d had this dress all Summer, I wouldn’t have taken it off, but I really love the idea of wearing it this Fall/Winter with cashmere cardigans and/or my leather jacket and tights. I have yet to wash it (hand wash in cold water, hang to dry) or travel with it, but I will be taking this dress with me on my trip to Atlanta next week, so I’ll let you know how it wears while I’m there, and I’ll definitely report back on my washing experience (cleaning silk kind of makes me nervous, but I’m sure it will be okay).
