I’ve featured select pieces from this brand a number of times, but I have to tell you — I am head over heels for this label! I finally ordered a lovely dress of theirs, this tiered flamingo-print dress I’d been eyeing forever. I had been looking for something to wear for our NINE YEAR anniversary tomorrow and though I tend to wear white for the occasion, this just felt right for this chaotic but fun time in our lives. (Bonus: it comes in a coordinating mini size at Maisonette.)
For those averse to trends: You can rent select pieces of this label from Rent The Runway, like this chic dress! A sharp reader recently asked what to do about trendy pieces that have strong patterns/prints, as she feels she can only get 2-3 wears out of them before retiring them since they’re so noticeable/recognizable. I mentioned that, first, I often wear statement dresses multiple years in a row so I get a few uses out of them and genuinely don’t care if they are last season’s style! If I love something, I love something. I will also invent occasions on which to wear them (i.e., “let’s go out to dinner and get dressed up…just because!”) BUT. Rent the Runway is a good way to get a little dose of a trend for a special occasion without the commitment.
And, also — a couple of other boldly printed pieces I’m loving right now:
THIS SHIRTDRESS (I OWN AND LOVE THIS — CAN’T BELIEVE THE MARK-DOWN PRICE HERE!)
THESE PAPER BAG SHORTS IN THE BLUE PATTERN
THIS ISOLDA DRESS (!!)
