Dressed to Travel | The History:
I’ve worn the dress twice now as Rent Frock Repeat borrows. The first time was on The Social. A last minute microphone decision meant that we needed to wear it buttoned to the top. The look, when paired with a dark lipstick gave off a goth look I hadn’t counted on.
This second wear was at the gala event at Mom 2.0. in Pasadena, California. I spoke at the conference and the evening events always require some extra pizazz. This dress didn’t disappoint.
Dressed to Travel | Travel Rating:
The dress makes my best travel clothes list. It is actually quite light and packed well. I rolled it for the trip and steamed it lightly before wearing. The top half is lace so no issue with crushing. 5/5
Dressed to Travel | What I loved:
The pockets. I am decidedly anti-handbag when I can avoid it. It’s just one more thing to forget somewhere. The best travel clothes always leave your hands free. Pockets mean I can slip in lipsticks and cards and a credit card and still have my hands free. The shape of this dress also meant that even with overstuffed pockets, I didn’t look like I was carrying the world on my hips.
Dressed to Travel | The accessories:
I opted for a bright earring, simple necklace and black pumps. The hair up-do was a last minute decision and its very simply pinned in the back (thanks to a roommate with skills!)
