It appears I am having a rhetorical conversation in my studio.

It appears I am having a rhetorical conversation in my studio.

It appears I am having a rhetorical conversation in my studio.

Concerning more often than not.

An array of STUNNING long silk dresses.  That enhance the incredible STUNNINGNESS of the wearer.

The question that is posed over and over from my customers … (generally after a long series of I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT) … 

is.

"Now where and when will I ever wear it?"

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………...

Am I confused?

Um, everywhere I say.  {cue strange look}

I get it.

A long silk dress would normally be reserved for a special occasion.

A wedding perhaps.  A special dinner.  A presentation night.  A launch.

And yes, these pieces of amazingness are perfectly suited for these events.

Just add heels.  Special earrings.  A smashing vintage clutch.

And we're good to go.  Compliments are guaranteed.

But ladies, I'm taking a stand.

For the silk dress.

AND for you.

It's time for the dress to accompany you in your life more often.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………...

First from a functional level ...

Silk is an incredibly strong fabrication that (if laundered well) will serve you season after season and beyond.

There's no reason a silk dress can't (and every reason it can) be worn ;

* With a great vintage belt and some sandals

* With your favourite denim jacket and beaten up boots

* Layered under a vintage tee shirt with bare feet and REALLY adorable sunglasses

Secondly from a societal standards perspective ...

{pardon me while I climb up on my judgement box}

Enough gym wear already!

Enough 'casual' already.

It's gone too far.

Grandma would not be happy.

It's time to turn it around.

When did it become more appropriate to be rocking your gym gear before a silk dress.

Why shouldn't stunningness become the new everyday?

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………...

Look.

The point I'd like to make is why not?

My vote is that.

If you love it.

You should don it.

Every day that you can.

Dress in a way that will INSPIRE someone!  

And most importantly  … inspire yourself.
