My Favorite Dress


White Dress2Emerson Fry Dress // YSL Heels // Celine Bag

This dress is (right now) my absolute favorite piece of clothing.  It’s gotten mixed reviews.  The boyfriend?  Surprisingly, a big fan.  Friends?  They seem to like it.  One friend likened it to a nurse’s uniform… (oh boy)  But I love it, and that’s what matters.  Emerson Fry makes such wonderful pieces and this one is lovely and thick (almost like a lightweight denim). It’s the sort of thing you just throw on without having to worry about much else, and lately, that is just what I need.  Easy, effortless style without having to try very hard.

Side note:  I ordered this dress and it was surprisingly, just way too long (I’m just under 5’8 so this isn’t a problem I usually have.)  I took it to the tailor and chopped about 4″ off the hem.  It’s a little short now, but I (personally) don’t think boxy dresses are flattering unless they’re on the shorter side.

I added a few more favorite EF items to my “shop” section.  Check ’em out!

    Love this type of dress, I have several in my closet and they are great because you can really dress it up or down. But…mostly I’m dying over your gorgeous hair. It’s fab.
