Top 5 Vacation Dresses

One thing in common with all 5 of these choices – can be rolled up in  a ball then shaken out, add havianas or a stellar pair of Loubies, wear with children and still manage to be all put together!

1. Rick Owens

reversecommuter found this dress and immediately bought it in 2 different colors.  Draped, bias cut and absolutely rollable.

2. DVF

the queen of romp herself would approve of this choice – repeat after me, I can never go wrong packing a wrap dress.

3.  James Perse

Californian king of t-shirts just grab one of his long tank dresses or rushed mid-length dresses and go!

4.  Alexander Wang

this classic sheer paneled dress comes in light and dark colors and even in a shirt silhouette, clearly recognizing a good thing can come in different shapes & sizes.

5.  ETRO

the Italian design house that creates tapestry like no other can dream without hallucinogenic assistance once again proves that a combo cover-up / fabulous evening dress makes for a lighter suitcase…all the better to fill up at the duty free!

Reality vs Fantasy

Or in my case, COLD vs HOT, as in the weather.

It is June 5th and I am wearing a sweater, A SWEATER!!   It is grey (the weather – the sweater is pale blue) and wet and cold and awful (again, the weather, the sweater is dry and soft and warm).  And sometimes it reminds me of Flashdance (the sweater, the weather doesn’t really remind me of anything).

Instead of harping on the weather (too late perhaps?), let’s take a look at some beach appropriate options!
