So Darling


I saw this yesterday at and the slightly bemused clerk let me take pictures to show you. Isn't it, well, darling?

Check out the very vintage-y fabric:

And the belt, backed with a coordinating green:

I'm not sure if Darling takes phone orders but if you MUST have this, it might be worth calling. I saw a size 10 and a size 4 on the rack. I think this one on the mannequin is an 8. It looked well-made, and the label is London Times. It was $145, which is not outrageous for a dress in a boutique in the West Village!

There were a lot of darling dresses there, unsurprisingly, but what I ended up buying (surprisingly) was a stretchy wide multi-buckle slightly bondage-y belt. I'm feeling the very, very cinched waist for fall …

  1. Iam not a shirtdress kinda gal. I like this dress tho. It is super cute. I would wear it. $145 is not to terribly outrageous especially for N.Y.C. A little high for me right now tho. I just paid off $20,$$$ in credit card debt. That was just mine, not Mr. Floridaprincess’s he had his own.

  2. Several years ago I bought a dress and a matching hat for my niece which reminds me of this, but the material had a black background. I have a picture of her wearing it too.

  3. Darling dress!My teens have been desiring shirtdresses for awhile now. I finally found one (for $1 at Value Village) and when dd wore it to church her friends didn’t know what to think. It was hilarious! “WHAT are you wearing?””Is that your mom’s?” (As if … )”It’s ugly!” (Which it wasn’t)LOLBTW, congratulations on being a “blog of note” on blogger! 🙂

  4. I love the way they put an unobtrusive little necklace on the manniken. Just so’s you’d be able to picture it as a real dress, on a real person.

  5. (In other words, I actually went to Darling, saw this dress, tried it on and bought it – all before I ever read your blog post. What a coincidence.)
