My collection of little summer dresses has grown thanks to Ashley Kadakia, founder of Beyond Bombay.
While cruising the Brick Church spring boutique in April I stopped in my tracks when I spied Ashley’s trio of dresses top. I bought two in white and asked if she’d consider making it in black. Ashely sources all of her items and beautiful textiles from India so it took a few weeks to fulfill my request. When the black version arrived, I threw it on over a black slip and have pretty much worn it non-stop—it’s the perfect go-anywhere summer dress.
I left a comment re. fit and posted a pic of myself in the black dress on Instagram @keepitchic
