ah, the wrap dress! it’s a total classic, yet i don’t think i’ve ever worn one before! it’s a wardrobe basic that i’d just never considered, but now that i have one, i’m beginning to see the light. this particular spaghetti wrap dress is by rachel pally. it comes in a longer length with a raw hem that you can cut to your preferred length. i don’t tend to wear maxi dresses, so my first inclination was to trim it to midi length. but then i thought it might be nice to dress this up for a fancier occasion, so i left it at a maxi length and just tied the ends in a knot for more of a casual look. i was going for a weekend brunch with the in-laws type of look. but it’s also totally something you can wear alone to an outdoor wedding or even as a bridesmaids dress. you see what i mean about versatility?
speaking of rachel pally, i had heard of the brand before because i think she dresses a lot of celebrities, but what i didn’t know is that her clothes are actually made in los angeles! she mostly does casual chic modal jersey (which is incredibly soft and luxurious), but this season, she also released a small linen collection! and you know that’s right down my alley. there is a perfect reversible linen wrap dress, linen overalls, and a swingy mini dress, all of which i could see fitting right into my own wardrobe.
