A Dress for All Occasions

Alright, so we all know that fashion is going mad over minimalist wardrobes comprised of mainly grey marle and denim, but sometimes a girl just needs a bloomin' pretty dress.  (literally blooming or not)
It's fab that people are all about "buying classics" and "investing in staples", but do you really think they are consuming any less?  I think what they're really doing is just... buying more grey marle!  And more denim!  It's female justification 101.

Rant aside though, this post is an ode to the humble feminine dress, long forgotten at the back of our closets behind all that black, grey and breton.  A dress can make you feel gorgeous when you don't, or solve an outfit crisis on the day of an event (oh hey, that sounds familiar) , or give your boyfriend eyes like that loveheart-eyed-emoji.  Never underestimate its powers.

And anyway, it's Spring.  In Spring, we wear dresses.

Work dresses are a notable absence from this post, as they're honestly the most boring type of dress to shop for, and who wants to talk about work anyway.  (Helloooo Monday, you stink.)

I'd love to hear your opinion on the role of dresses in your wardrobe.  Do you wear them?  Do you own many?

  1. Vive la robe!

    I'm making the dress effort this month as part of Frocktober (but, er, a little tardy in updating to the blog - unlike you speedy blogging superstars!)

    Beautiful choices. Now to stop myself buying the lot.

  2. More grey marle! That is SO true. I have been living in black skinnies and breton for months now, so sick of it. Time for dresses xo
