When spring rolls around the first thing that comes to mind is the infamous quote by the imitable Miranda Priestly, based on Editor-in-Chief of American Vogue, Anna Wintour. “Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.” Although the editrix may not agree with my traditional choice on florals for this spring shoot, I tried to give the look some more edge by pairing the dress with my new favourite ankle boots and a faux leather jacket. By itself, the dress is ultra feminine which I love, but with a few key accessories it goes from day to night. The best thing about this dress though is that it has pockets! As Simone Rocha told W Magazine in her Up-and-Coming designer profile:
“I don’t carry a handbag, so everything I design has pockets.”
Hearing that a female designer is creating more functional, albeit beautiful designs, is refreshing. Although I brought two of my trusty black handbags for the shoot, I could have left them both at home since this dress has deep pockets on the sides. I put my cell phone and bus pass in them and they didn’t fall out so this dress gets extra brownie points based on that alone.
