I’ve been on the lookout for a particular type of summer dress. One less on the flowy side. I have far too many of those from summers past. Easy to throw on when one has no time for a second more of outfit contemplation. No, this time I’m looking for something different. Something less loud, more sophisticated . . . . mmmm . . . crisper seems like the correct word. Funny, coming from me, a women far from the meaning behind the world crisp. But I wouldn’t be lying if I said I have indeed become more refined. This Derek Lam 10 Crosby sleeveless fishtail dress that I found on Farfetch speaks along those refined lines. Simplistic in nature, but far from conservative or the word I hate most . . . boring. A cotton that feels sturdier and more structured that the usual pretty dresses known to summer, but that is what makes this dress feel special. It makes a far different statement. One physically, it plans to last much longer into the seasons and years to come. A belted waist, utilitarian in feeling, but cinching so well it could never be mistaken as too masculine. There is just the right amount of that you see. Stitch detailing adding a sense of sophisticated curves along the waistline and neckline, the two sexiest parts of a woman’s body. With my body shape being more straight up and down, I long dearly to these fine details that draw emphasize my more feminine parts. Giving shape to what might not originally be there.
Derek Lam, you always do those things the best. And Farfetch, you make things easier my curating the best of the best. Look no more, Farfetch knew before I knew what the perfect summer dress was made for.
