I remember when I first saw a slip dress in the wild. It was sort of a shock to the system, to be honest. I tried it on and thought, where am I ever going to wear this? (Yes, I actually said those words.)
The thing about slip dresses is - they’re SUPER versatile - they can easily be dressed up or down. I’ve worn mine with everything from sneakers to heels. I’ve worn them to work with a blazer and to brunch with sandals and a tee underneath.
I had typically been drawn to simple slips, but when I spotted this one, I HAD to have it. It still feels classic, but with a bit of an edge. The tiny floral pattern on the dress feels so fresh for Spring. I paired it with my floral embroidered faux leather jacket I got from Wylie Grey earlier this year. I can’t get enough of it!
If you hadn’t noticed, & Other Stories just opened in Georgetown last month! It’s such a treat to visit the store in person - and it’s an Instagram Haven for all you photo fanatics like me out there. It’s right on the main strip on M Street - you can’t miss it! But in case you’re directionally challenged, like me, the address is 3241 M Street, NW, Washington, D.C.
Also, in case you were wondering, I wore this dress out for a little pizza date with my bestie Erin (who shot these photos!) for our Friendiversary. I can't believe we've been friends for a year - it feels like we've been besties forever. And in honor of that, here are a few fun photos taken by the also-super-talented-and-darling Emma Weiss of us two!
