“Dress”


By the River

This place by the Saint-Lawrence river on l’Île-des-Soeurs is a well-kept secret! I love to go there at sunset to clear my mind and center myself.

It was also the perfect place to take a few pictures of this splendid dress. The fabric is definitely surprising as the weave seems rough, but as soon as you touch it, you realize how soft and breathable it is.

By belting at the waistline, it enhances the curves of the silhouette. But I prefer to wear it in its simplest form. I’m more comfortable that way and I love to wear casual looks in the summer! The straight cut is currently en vogue in New York and I think we’ll be seeing it more here soon!

You will find this dress and belt at Les Étoffes.

Versatility

I love clothes that you can wear many ways! This dress is a perfect example. It remains pretty with both heels and sneakers. Cendrine, from the Des vertes et des pas mûres boutique, even suggested that I wear it as a tunic with white pants. Sounds good!

I also had so much fun playing with the belt! Because it’s lined with white cotton, which is really easy to place in many ways and create different black and white compositions, the dress’s neckline, back, sleeves and hem are enhanced. I could even wear the belt as a headband or around my neck like a delicate scarf.

Which look do you prefer? The boxy version with sneakers or the more feminine one with heels?
