It was another case of “love at first sight” for me, dear readers!!
Right next to the heavenly Free People boutique that finally opened here in Vancouver last month, we also have an equally divine Anthropologie store. And that’s where I found this super-cool, drapey shirtdress!!
Honestly, I couldn’t tell you why I simply had to try it on the moment I saw it there on the rack…granted, it’s a very subtle plaid (my pattern obsession of the moment!) but it’s also the kind of dress that really has no “hanger appeal.” There’s no defined waist; no sleeve detail; no fancy buttons or embellishment of any kind. In fact, if it was a shirt – rather than a shirtdress – I know I likely wouldn’t have given it a second glance.
But, as a dress, it has a whole other level of appeal…a sort of minimalistic edginess that looks as great with my Nine West sandals today, as I know it will look with tights and boots (and maybe my moto jacket!) when our weather eventually becomes less friendly.
Do you ever find yourself inexplicably falling in love with a piece that normally wouldn’t turn your head?? I’m looking forward to hearing your story!!
