When I was planning my cruise last summer I knew I needed a LBD that could do double duty.
I needed to be able to dress it up and down. It needed to comfortable, versatile, travel well and be easy care. A tall order. I found it all at Marie Hell.
When I found this line of dresses, I fell in love, immediately. Their company values are in line with my own. Made in America with luxurious fabric that is also milled here. I like that!
These are a permanent collection of modern-day classics that are elegant, effortless and timeless.
I chose this long-sleeved Zipped Dress because I knew it would be chilly in the Baltic Sea region. The zippers are just the right amount of edgy for me.
The entire collection comes in a neutral palette. The black and grey are available in a specially woven, classic jersey. The off-white and white versions are available in Ponte Jersey, which is thick enough to be totally opaque.
Machine wash, hang dry, which I love! I hate dry cleaning anything!
These dresses all have the same body silhouette. They fall away from your body and are canvases for your personal style. They skim your body and don’t cling. I don’t know about you, but cling is out for me.
This dress is a perfect blank canvas. A quick change of accessories takes it from casual to formal. I wore this on the long flight to Copenhagen and got off the plane looking perfectly polished. Not a wrinkle in sight.
Since I cracked my hip last summer I have packed on a 10 solid pounds. This dress still fits me, while most other things do not. I have my eye on the Quiver Dress in off-white. It will play nicely with all my jackets and cardigans this fall.
