I find it difficult to play favourites in my wardrobe! As I have honed my style and farewelled many items, new pieces are being carefully considered and only allowed in if they tick all my boxes.
I could easily wear this dress daily!
The dress is the Short Sleeve Plaza Drape Dress by Metalicus. It is a viscose/elastane blend and the fabric is substantial, and has just the right amount of stretch. I shared the dress with you in my Metalicus post but this is the first outfit post featuring it. By the time I had decided I wanted the dress, it had sold out almost everywhere in the black. I finally found it at a boutique in Sydney where the lovely owner took my purchase over the phone and mailed the dress to me.
blazer : katies
dress : metalicus
suede boots : rivers
This is the dress as worn for the office in quite a conservative styling. While it definitely has a dressy vibe with the gorgeous drape, it can be dressed up or down quite easily. As with much of their range, the dress is transeasonal and can be worn alone or layered over.
The suede boots would not be my perfect choice for this outfit, but I hadn't received my new leather boots at the time, which I would now wear instead of these.
Long story short... I am besotted with this dress, so do expect to see more of it.
Do you have an item like this in your wardrobe at the moment? One that you have to stop yourself reaching for too often? And how much trouble do you go to, to find that desired piece?
