Finding the Perfect Dress

September 18

First, you’ll want a dress you can move in, not one that is too constricting. There’s a time and place for that fitted sexy number — but that’s not going to get much play time. For the dress you can wear throughout the seasons, this is your go-to… you can pack it and know you can wear it three times on one trip — with sandals, boots, AND heels. This is the dress. It makes you feel oh-so-thin and oh-so-curvy all at once. You want something made out of a blend of luxe fabrics that are not too high-maintenance, like a silk-blend or the perfect jersey. You can roll it up, pull it out of your bag and onto your body and it effortlessly glides over all the right places. You want it to be short sleeve, or three-quarter sleeve and lightweight (you can always layer in the colder months!) and a color that will look great with black tights and white sandals… think a heavenly gray, olive green, navy, or of course, black. Not too short — you want to be able to move! The details should be thoughtful and simple. Nothing that stands out, you’ll want to be able to select your own accessories so that the dress is like a chameleon, it changes with you and the moment of your choosing.
