the shirtdress


I've spent every night of the last week watching season one of Homeland and I am thoroughly hooked. I know, I know, I am egregiously late to the party, but fortunately I still have no idea what's going to happen to Brody, Carrie, and friends, (so no spoilers, please!). All I know is that I have many more nights of gripping plot twists ahead of me, and my viewing pleasure will be just as good as it was for those who've watched before me. Sometimes, I think, it doesn't hurt to be a little behind and to let other people do the quality control testing for you. For me, this is also the case with the shirtdress: a spring trend that's already all the rage, but one that I am late to sample. However, from what I see, I like! Clearly, a shirtdress is a breeze to wear, and I like the idea of enhancing it with feminine, elegant accessories (see Olivia Palermo in a past season BCBG dress in the last pic, below). Of course, I delved into a little market research and discovered a bevy of stellar options from Equipment, 10 Crosby Derek Lam, Splendid, Vince, Joseph, Theory and Emerson Fry (directly below).

You're going to LOVE the rest of Homeland. Have you watched House of Cards yet? I'm also addicted to that.

Shirt dresses - gorgeous. I love the bagginess of the first one.

LOVE a good shirtdress and the versatility they offer. We also were late to the Homeland bandwagon and have spent far too many nights up until 1am because we can't stop watching it...so good!

House of Cards is next. Then perhaps Game of Thrones. Clearly, I am really lagging in the good-tv-watching dept.

Do you know where the denim/blue dress is from in the 2nd to last photo?

I'm guessing Giovanna's dress is by Band of Outsiders. Not sure though...

Any idea who made Leandra Medine's shirtdress? It is quite chic while simple.

Thank you.
