I don’t wear a dress on a daily basis. Especially since I moved to San Francisco where the weather seems to be in a constant menopausal state. You just never know what the weather is going to be like from one minute to the next, ever! So, wearing a dress is tricky, not to mention the type of public transportation you may get on that makes it a nuisance to wear anything too fancy.
Since 1996 I must have worn 5 dresses for special occasions. I like dresses that feel like a second skin. Because dresses are a special purchase for me I usually splurge on them. And I make sure they are timeless and versatile. A LBD (little black dress) is a great investment.
Whenever I wear a dress and post it on a social media platform it not only gets many likes but friends actually say: “See … Hell didn’t freeze over! You look great in a dress!” So I just may wear them more often. I’m thankful for the opportunity to share with you a brand that carries timeless basic dresses that are simple, stylish and comfortable.
One little black, white or grey dress is the best bet, because you can transform the look by adding scarves, belts, jewelry, a jacket, shoes and purses. The transformation turns these simple dresses into a complete different outfit every time.
This is what I’ve found in Marie Hell dresses. They are versatile, stylish, and simple. They travel well since they don’t wrinkle, especially if you roll them when you pack. They are also very comfortable and feel like a second skin. Not too tight or loose. I took mine to Spain!
It was hard to choose which style to sample. I chose the Reveal Tunic in black and with all the extra accessories I have, I could transform the look, taking it from night to day. From school to party. And it felt just right.
Now that I’m a month shy of turning 50, life and time is of essence, I have chosen to simplify my wardrobe. And make room for dresses. What I most love about the Reveal tunic is that I can wear it as a dress, or with skinny jeans or leggings as a tunic.
