Mother always said “take the best from those around you.” So embracing only discrimination of style, this look dips back to the Jackie Kennedy era of timeless and modest fashion, with a Pashmina Collection dress.
This dress states “I am purveying a chapter of adventure in my life.” And it is characteristic of anything from closing on a home to sitting side saddle on a safari. The endless turquoise beads on a contrasting white canvas define this ensemble as resort wear. It is the ease of a perfect sunny afternoon embodied.
The high collared neckline is a direct borrow from an era when the only way to keep unwanted advances away was by boarding up like a house under hurricane. The hemline itself is more alluring than inviting, and commands more self-respect than it gives away. Like any good remake, this shirt dress carries the charm of a bygone era and matches it with today’s style. The only way I’ll ever wear a trend is by making it timeless, and by making it my own.
