The Handkerchief Dress
Going against the contemporary offerings of most department stores is the goal of the New York based brand, Shoshanna. After graduating from UCLA with a degree in Art history, founder Shoshanna Gruss took it upon herself to get as much exposure in the fashion industry as possible. Throughout the last 19 years she has been able to create a line of beautiful, whimsical pieces that translate into flattering, feminine ensembles like this one for my fun shoot on Rodeo Dr. As the weather is getting warmer and event season is around the corner (weddings, graduations, etc.) a good hankerchief-hem dress is your saving grace. Ever wonder why all your favorite bloggers seem to pull out this piece during this time of year in unison? Well, it comes down to one important quality, versatility. This piece can take you from a beachside BBQ in LA to a night out in NYC in no time. Here are a just few of my favorite hankerchief dresses :
1. This Angela silk open-shoulder dress is the one pictured below and let's just say I'm obsessed. The silky material makes it perfect for warmer weather and it can easily be dressed up.
5. This cross strap handkerchief dress by Jealous Tomato dress makes me think of a Moroccan getaway and is under $30. Who could resist that??
6. Have a Spring wedding coming up? This baby blue Moon River is the perfect piece to pull out for such occasion.
