Claudie Pierlot Robe Crêpe Marine Dress and Miu Miu Shoes
The sun finally came out (intermittently between rain showers) after a damp and rainy week. The nice weather was a lovely excuse to pull out one of my favorite Hong Kong purchases. I first wrote about this dress here.
My little navy dress has been an essential this spring. I hesitated before purchasing this dress because of the bold gold zipper. I was concerned that the gold hardware would be limiting since I don't like mixing metals when it comes to my jewelry and handbag. So far this dress has proven to be anything but limiting. The rounded neckline, puffed short sleeves and flat pleating at the skirt exemplify the attention to detail that make this more than a simply little dress. Not to mention the deep navy color.
Dresses are the foundation of my wardrobe. This dress is versatile enough to wear to work (with a jacket), board meetings and evening cocktail parties. A dresses like this simplifies my morning routine. This is essential when I'm due at work even earlier in the morning during the summer.
I have been slow to embrace posting personal style photos on the blog, but this dress is a fine example of the elegant and polished style that defines my wardrobe.
