MY NEW SKY PRINTED MAXI DRESS BY REISS

Hello lovelies, how are you all?

MY NEW SKY PRINTED MAXI DRESS BY REISS

I cannot speak for the rest of the world but here in Australia maxi dresses are having their moment and I am loving it.  The great thing about the maxi dress is that there are no rules on how long, how fitted or floaty it has to be as long as you find your perfect fit and are looking gorgeous in it.  Same applies to the colour choice: it could be a solid colour or a lovely print, in soft or bold colours – everything is left to your personal sense of style, colour and shape.

I have a couple of maxi dresses in my closet but they were purchased a few years back and I was on the lookout for a fresh new one.  Since the demise of the economy due to the latest pandemic, the shops have been having perpetual sales and while it is a disturbing sign of the havoc that this virus has wrecked our economy, there is nothing wrong in taking advantage to re-fresh our wardrobes and save some money in the process.

Case in point, the wrap-around dress I am wearing today.  Soon after the department stores re-opened their doors, I summoned up my courage and ventured into the shopping centre to have a look around.  Every store advertised sales and promised massive discounts and attracted by that, I stepped inside the Reiss store.  Under normal circumstances, as much as I admire their clothes, I don't shop there simply because I find that the prices are rather high for my liking but now with the prices drastically slashed down, it was worth a look.

Everything in the store was heavily discounted including this dress which I liked the minute I saw it.  I have always loved wrap-around dresses and this one in a fresh neutral colour with an unusual geometric print that vaguely reminded me of the birch trees (berezka) of my old country, caught my attention.  Since the dresses that I currently wear are very colourful, I figured that a dress in softer calmer tones would bring a breath of fresh air.  After all, there comes a time when you want to wear a dress that does not look like your flower bed 😉.

I must admit that the creators of Reiss clothing have every reason to ask a high price for their garments:  every dress, blouse or skirt looks extremely elegant yet modern, the fabric is of the best quality and most of all, on closer inspection you cannot help but admire the level of the dressmaker's craftsmanship.

The dress fitted me perfectly, it was very well constructed down to a small, invisible button on the front panel that prevents the dress from gaping around the chest.  The applied discount made it very affordable so I couldn't find any reason why I shouldn't buy it and so I did👍.

When I checked it on Reiss official web-site, the model was wearing black high heel tall boots which is quite unusual styling choice for Australians.  Anyway, I liked the way it looked so I decided to replicate it.

I am carrying my old Bvlgari bag and wearing earrings that were custom made for me by a very talented friend of mine.

  3. It's beautiful: lovely print and I like that it is a neutral color! Going to work well for all of the season. I am hoping to do more with skirts and dresses this winter. This has been a year for wearing them more.
