weekend distraction: the Mabel dress

On March 29, 2014 by theseventhsphinx

Came across this dress on pinterest recently, the Mabel dress from Curator,  and it is everything I want it to be; loose, soft, luxe, simple, light. It shows what is to me just the right amount of skin in the cut around the arms and throat. And pockets! Love the jade color in the second image particularly.

Basics are notoriously hard to get right. Like a T-shirt or jeans, it’s difficult to find a dress that fits well and drapes well and genuinely suits one. This one is very near the top of my wishlist at the moment. This was my introduction to Curator, a small brand out of San Francisco created by two friends in 2001, and I’m going to investigate further on the strength of this piece.
