Dress: c/o Go Modest // Glasses: Celine // Purse: Coach
Florals for spring. Groundbreaking, right? Now don’t get me wrong, I love bright, colorful florals as much as the next fashionista. But it’s refreshing to break away from the norm sometimes and wear an expected floral dress for the first week of spring. This muted floral dress from was an ideal choice for my slightly rebellious yet on-trend and work-appropriate LWD (little white dress). Read on to find out what I love (and don’t love) about this modest LWD.
What I Love
- The sepia floral print – My closet is currently filled with more traditional floral print skirts and dresses, so this dress — with its digital floral print in sepia — is a welcomed and different addition. I LOVE that it maintains all of the femininity of a colorful floral dress but feels more mature.
- The midi length – I almost NEVER say I prefer a midi-length to a knee-length hem, but for this dress it just works. It also enhances the overall sophistication of the dress; perhaps that’s why it feels best suited for more formal environments. The midi length of this dress requires me to wear pointy heels with it every time, but that’s NBD since I’m typically in heels anyway (particularly those heels I scored from ThredUP for 80% off).
- The fabric – Oh, the fabric. This dress is made of a rich jacquard. If you’re unfamiliar with jacquard, meet your new favorite fabric. Jacquard isn’t actually a fabric itself — it’s a weaving technique that produces some of the most intricately designed and elegant dresses
- The company – As you can tell from the name of the company, Go Modest is filled with modest and high-quality dresses. Moral, the genius behind the brand, has created a diverse and unique collection of wearable dresses that range from casual to formal.
What I Don’t Love
- The price – While I love the quality of this dress, it is admittedly pricey at $116 a pop. Now, is this dress worth saving up for? Absolutely.
- The sleeves – I was so sad when I realized how tight the sleeves of this dress were on me. Fortunately, that was the only fit issue I noticed with this dress. And this is also very personal because I’ve got jiggly arms.
Wondering if this dress will work for you? It depends on your lifestyle. If you frequently seek dresses that can be worn to work and after-work functions in the same day or, if you have a any kind formal event coming up in the spring, this dress would work well for you. And in a sea of basic florals, you will be a notable outlier in this unqiue piece.
