Nobody does a shirt dress like Gap. Seriously. The shapes, the cuts, the prints… They get me. Every. Single. Time. This one is currently in the mail to me as well.
I actually spotted this dress in a street style snap from NYFW and once I tracked it down to Gap I immediately ran to the store to try it on! Now, I will say at first glance you kind of feel a tad more dentist than expected, but once you get the waist cinched just right it starts to feel a little more do-able. Throw some heels on and accessorize with some gold jewelry and you feel much more NYFW chic and a little less Hannibal Lector in a straight jacket. #letsbehonesthere
This dress absolutely falls under the “White After Labor Day” topic I discussed last week and this was actually what I wore for my news segment. Regardless of its color I have big plans to wear this shirt dress well into fall. With booties and a brown floppy hat, with black pumps and lots of gold jewelry, the combinations are endless! Cheers to all you fellow rule breakers out there. Keep on wearing that white!
