Oh the joys of a comfortable shirt dress. I’m pretty sure you can conquer the world in a great dress and this Burberry shirt dress is no exception. This was an absolutely lovely gift I received last year. It’s completely timeless and I feel fortunate to have received it. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves today…I particularly enjoyed when our photo shoot took a turn for the steamy when we came across a vent. They are different from the rest of the photos, but I loved them too much not to share! And yes, you can imagine what the outtakes looked like. About five seconds on that vent and I was over it.
Dress: Burberry (gift)
Shoes: Dolce Vita at Bloomingdale’s outlet ($17 marked down from $100)
Necklace: Nordstrom Rack ($15 marked down from approx $35)
Fashion Huntress tips:
1) While this dress was a gift, I do believe that if you’re going to invest in a designer piece, consider investing in something that will stand the test of time. Many stores such as Nordstrom Rack, Bloomingdales Outlet and Saks Off Fifth have a designer section for designer pieces at discount prices. I generally find that Nordstrom Rack has the best prices on these pieces. Often, there are “designer” racks, but I frequently find designer pieces mixed in with other items. The clearance section at Nordstrom Rack generally has designers such as Tory Burch, DVF, Burberry, and Kate Spade (to name a few!).
2) I wear this dress year round, which means it gets a lot of use. When looking at designer pieces, consider pieces that you can transition through the seasons to really get a bang for your buck. In the summer, I generally wear the dress with nude sandals. In winter, I add orange tights, a long cream sweater, and boots.
Anyone else have a dress they love year round? Or pieces that have sentimental value?
Happy Friday, readers! Thank you, as always, for stopping by!
