I love silk, have I ever mentioned that it's one of my favorite textiles to play with? Not only does it feel amazing on the skin, but it's so effortlessly feminine. I know that this dress doesn't exactly screem girly, but I definitely felt that way today. A simple collar can take any dress and both elevate and casulize (is that even a word?) it. Today I went for more of an effortless look by throwing on a knit cardigan and my favorite booties - which I'm sure you're all sick of seeing by now. But they literally go with everything and I don't have another pair that's as perfect as these!
The versatility of this dress was what originally attracted me to it. I could easily throw on top a crew-neck sweater and have the collar pop out for a preppier vibe, or layer on a full-bodied midi-skirt to feminize the look. Whatever the outfit, I know that this dress will take me far and is most likely going to make it's mark as one of the staple pieces in my closet.
