The Modern Shift Dress!
Last weekend it was, my friend, Rachaels birthday and what better way to celebrate than to head out on a girlie lunch and impromptu shopping trip. I find you score the best buys when hitting stores without any particular goal – there is no pressure to settle, or even make a purchase, which frees the mind to endless possibilities.
We stumbled across this fabulous flocked cobalt dress at Anthropologie in Albuquerque…..when I say “stumbled” I mean we ran into Anthropologies lovely style consultant, kristy, who was wearing this modern shift by Sachin & Babi for Ankasa. Before I could say, “Rach you need to try that on” she was in the fitting room doing exactly that!
A statement in itself, this dress lends itself to a variety of accessorizing options to dictate the flavor of the look. On this occasion we went for updated elegance so paired with LK Bennetts “Olive” suede pumps ( a favorite of Kate Middletons) and a vintage Christian Dior clutch (see next post). For a cute day look this dress can be belted, shirtdress style, and teamed with ballerina’s or taken into Fall with a denim jacket and boots! Dress here and shoes similar here!
