Milage from a Dress


Another amazing cotton dress by Velvet. I buy at least one a season from Anthropologie. I’m kinda on this cotton dress kick because they are so easy to care for are super versatile and have simplified my wardrobe. There’s an ease to dresses that I love-no hunting for the perfect bottom or something that matches. The shape and cut are amazing for my long torso/hourglass shape. The neckline adds volume to the bust which is good for me, perfect cocktail length hits at the knee, color brings my eyes alive, and skips over the thigh area. The day to night possibilities are endless. Season less, timeless.

Here’s one for sale right now that’s similar

How I have been wearing the dress to the max
*Sightseeing with flat bronze sandals, hat, and sunglasses
*Over a bathing suit hat and sunglasses
*Daytime for work consultation with teal velvet Marc Jacobs blazer, labradorite necklace by V’TA jewelry, brown retro pumps by Kenneth Cole (shown above)
*Nighttime for a date-good jewelry, vintage clutch, gold Elie Tahari shoes, cotton wrap lacy cardigan by Deletta from Anthropologie in teal. (shown above)
Fall nighttime with Red DKNY statement coat, hounds tooth hat, tights
Thrown on to run errands-good for feeling cute at Duane Reade

I tell you what works for me. I encourage you to find dress styles and colors that make your body sing. There is no one shape for everybody. Working with a stylist can help you identify your best styles and colors.
