On The Hunt For

The Tie-Front Dress

I have a closetful of simple black dresses that go the distance. A Valentino lace shift and The Row’s Marina have been my go-tos on so many occasions, I’d grab them in a fire. But, I want something different for a bunch of spring events — the hunt is on.

  • “I’d grab them in a fire” is such a good line!

  • They’re both great – but the Petrov really stands out. So very versatile and chic. Would also be gorgeous with Sophie Buhai or Kendall Conrad jewelry and The Row shoes.. Look forward to seeing what works for you.

    Thank you again for your wonderful site – so well done. It’s a daily go-to!

  • I’m also hunting for a dress that’s not black for spring. Vince has some pretty ones that I’m considering.

  • I like the top one. And the model in the top pic.

  • The top is amazing. Please let us know what you end up buying and how you are styling it.

  • I would like to hear what you find…I am looking for the same type of dress to wear to a bunch of spring and early summer events, too. Please keep your readers posted! : )

  • You may want to glance at Tibi’s summer collection – several pieces are right on target. Happy hunting!

  • I’ve had my eye on The Row’s Marina dress. Seems like such a simple, chic, versatile dress. That paired with Manolo Blahnick’s chaos sandal would be fabulous, as well as with a flat sandal.

  • I have a cream silk dress with tiny touches of back which seem to ground it. Wear it ALL THE TIME. Nice way to occasionally stand out from the sea of black.

  • Neither of these looked good on me, the hunt continues.
