Summer Dress Obsessed

Beyond Bombay

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

  • I love wearing dresses like these in the heat. Do they graze the knee? I am 5’5″. Thank you Preston!

  • Agree — love this little dress! I’m curious about length too — looks very short and I’m 5’8″. How long is the small if you don’t mind me asking? Also wondering about wearing with your slip 🙂 — what kind — cotton and let it show at the bottom? Thanks.

  • I am 5’5″ and wear a small, they run large. I cut the elastic on the sleeves, prefer them capped. And, I did a slip story ages ago, will re-run it.
