I am smitten with everything the high-end label Brock Collection puts out. I just cannot get enough of its old-world, romantic, couture sensibility, and — you know me and florals, and they do a lovely floral. The line was founded by a married couple who met while studying at Parsons School of Design (my sister’s alma mater!), and they artfully describe their brand as “a rarefied space of lived-in romance and thoughtful whimsy; it connects the dazzling (and not always easy to traverse) threads between uptown polish and boardwalk ease.”
But I quickly began to aspire to its lovely read to wear pieces, available at Moda Operandi, Net A Porter, and Neiman Marcus. I would die to wear this peplum-waist floral dress or this lace-trimmed floral midi (on sale!) or this taffeta maxi.
And I love the idea of pairing this statement blouse with a trim white pencil skirt for an elegant look.
If The Brock Collection is a little out of reach right now, I have been swooning over the pretty and far more affordable styles from the label Valencia & Vine. This yellow top reminds me an awful lot of the style shown just above — but is $125. I also love this maxi, this asymmetrical midi, and this bow-shouldered top.
These heels would go perfectly with any of these styles — and they’re on sale!
P.S. I love that these dresses would work for a town mouse or a country mouse 🙂
