Dotty and I are in the process of packing up our life here in Amsterdam, getting ready to move to Vancouver. We are pretty good at this moving around thing though so we haven’t accumulated as much as I would have liked (ahem) but still have limitations on weight and room so are more in the phase of “getting rid of” rather than “packing up”.
While leaving clothes behind can be a little traumatising when my wardrobe is so small already (this reason actually being the motivation for starting The Worlds Wardrobe – if I couldn’t physically have it, I was going to have a great time imagining it…), it is also a great chance to restock and restyle.
I have decided that this is going to be a Spring/Summer for dresses: with sandals, ankle boots, blazers, hats and sneakers, dresses are just so versatile and so easily styled to suit any occasion and what better time to start a collection than at the beginning of a season in a new town.
With this thought in mind, I took to Polyvore to bring together some of my favourite dresses of the moment. I was initially choosing a dress for each day of the week, however I don’t think there should ever be limitations on choices (especially when imagining a dream wardrobe) so added in a “plus one”, ensuring all “I don’t know what to wear” bases were covered.
From long to short, stripes to colour blocking, sheer to silk; these are just some of the dresses that I would love to choose from at the beginning of each day.
