On The Hunt For

The Long And Short Of It.

All of my summer dresses are short save a printed one from La Double J. I get a ton of compliments every time I wear it so now I’m on the hunt for a simple black one—tbc.

  • Love this! By any chance do you know who designed the sandals with criss cross bands on the right? I like the shape of the sole. Thanks in advance for your response.

  • Preston and fellow blog readers, would love some good ideas/inspiration for Fall fashion purchases. Not looking for anything trendy per se and the trend that Neiman’s calls ‘Peacock’ scares me altogether :), but has anything caught your eyes as classic with a modern twist and staying power? At this point, the goal is to buy (mostly) forever pieces, to not clog up the closet. Thanks in advance for your insights!

  • That short black dress is exactly what I’ve been for!

  • Hello Preston I love the simplicity of black sundresses and flat black sandles for a languid look in the height of scary humid days (whether NY or Sydney where I live). It would be helpful if you could identify the brand of the dresses in your image. Thank you Cate

  • Vince has the exact dress your looking for! Happy hunting!

  • At 5 ‘ 2 “ and a short waist I have not been able to pull off a long casual summer dress. If you find one in you’re hunt that works let us short women know.

  • This Vince dress looks perfect.

  • I purchased that black long Frame dress that was in your shop and wear it all the time with flat, black, Saint Laurent sandals, also from your shop. Hope you find yours.

  • Black Crane makes a similar dress, and I’ve seen the sandals, but cannot recall where…

  • Love the short black dress. Where can I buy!

    EvaJuly 30th, 2018  10:20 AM

     
  • Vince has a linen dress like the long one on the left. Have been wearing it and loving it.

    AlisonJuly 30th, 2018  1:50 PM

     
  • I also want to know where to buy the dress on the right. Thank you

  • Emerson Fry’s India Sundress is similar but at lower price point than Frame. I’m not sure about the quality.

  • I’ve been living in my below-the-knee black shirtdress this summer.

  • I bought the Madewell black sundress with the square neck that you posted last year (I think, maybe year before), and I wear it all the time!

  • Also, would love to see your Double J dress. I’m not familiar with them and so hard to tell on-line, but would love to have another long dress!
