I like to have a go-to when I need a special outfit for an occasion. It makes life easy when you have one place you can go and know you will find what you need without running all over. For a long time it was Loft, then J. Crew and after I stopped working, Francesca's because it's cheap and trendy. Now though, I want better fabrics with a longer life. They drape better and hold up through more washings.
I've found a new place, though, I'm a little sad it's online and not a shop I can visit to try things on. That being said, I'm at an age where I know pretty well what works for my figure so I'm a little more comfortable. All that is to say that Shabby Apple is rocking my world.
With The Blathering coming up, I am totally in the market for a going-out dress.
Do you have a go-to shop for special occasion dressing?
