Dress Week: A Dress for Holiday Parties

Dec 3, 2019

For a couple of years now, Reformation has been the biggest thing in dresses.  With high slits, flirty silhouettes, and feminine prints, their wares are certainly lovely (especially this Wildflower dress), but a little pricey.  So when you find a dress that has that Reformation look at a less-than-Reformation-price, you snap it up.

This & Other Stories Satin Midi Dress is fabulous.  The square neckline, the high slit, the puff sleeve — yes, yes, and yes.

As for how to wear it, you can go several directions, but all of them depend on the shoes you choose.  Here are four:

One. High-heeled sandals require dangly earrings and a simple clutch.

Two. A sock boot with tights goes with black hoops and chain crossbody.

Three. Over-the-knee suede boots should have a cool cocktail ring and a killer leather jacket.

And four, a glam mesh sandal with a dramatic earring and a red lipstick.

A word of caution, however, this dress is satin.  So if you’re going to wear tights, you’ll need Static Guard to prevent static cling.

I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.

Three Outfits I’ll Wear All Spring

When I started this blog, influencers still re-wore clothes. There were no haul videos filled with the latest from Shein before it winds up in a beach in Ghana poisoning the planet. There were no sponsored campaigns delivering fresh wardrobes each month. The content machine doesn’t like reruns.

The Find: Like a McCall’s Pattern

When I was young, my Mother used to bring me along when she would go shopping for fabric. As a result, I spent a lot of time, killing time, flipping through pattern books. So when I spotted this dress, I was instantly transported to the pattern table at a Jo-Ann Fabrics.
