Everyone touts the wonder of the little black dress. It’s the always-appropriate, perfectly classic with a touch of sass, incredibly flattering option that you can wear just about anywhere. Put all of those attributes in a dress, and sign even me, who y’all know loves color more than anything, up. But what if instead of black… that magical dress, complete with every magical detail, came in pink!
Enter the Orla by Julie Brown Designs. Simple in nature and classic in cut, this little beauty has won my heart! Apart from being incredibly comfortable (so soft) and absolutely flattering, I can’t get enough of how versatile it is. I decided to style it for y’all two different ways – a casual yet put together run-around-town look, and a fun night out ensemble! It really provides the perfect, classic backdrop to whatever style you’re wanting to lend it to. I’m too excited to have it in my closet for formal meetings, Saturday brunches with friends, church and more. (And who’s excited for riding boots and a cardigan when fall rolls around? Me!)
I’m wearing the Petite size, and hemmed the dress up a couple inches to make it proportional to my 5’2″ self. Luckily, the lovely A-line shape makes the dress fit like a dream on short and tall alike. Is it clear I can’t get enough of this staple?
And I am so excited, because I’m giving one reader a $300 gift card to Julie Brown Designs!
