Review "The True Thirties Dress" in Blue Stripe by Emmy Designs Sweden

Hello Lovelies!

Abby here to talk to you about my new favorite dress in the (very large & needs to be cleaned out) wardrobe -

The True Thirties Dress by Emmy Designs of Sweden

Y'all. Seriously - Emmy created everything a girl could want in a dress with this lovely number. I mean, look at it!

Those lines though....
I love a good summer dress in a nice lightweight material, and The True Thirties dress is just that. It's made from a nice lightweight striped cotton (100%) that is cool and comfortable for the high summer heat (and humidity depending on where you're living...). I wore this dress for the first time when Lauren and I went to Louisville, Kentucky for Jane Austen Festival, and it was beyond comfortable when we were running around town and spending time outside. The lightness of the fabric and the swing of the skirt allowed for a lot of air circulation, and kept my body cool and comfortable in the high heat & humidity.

Look at that twirly skirt! wee!
My favorite pieces of clothing are those that have a healthy blend of classic, sophisticated design lines with a thoughtful & creative edge to the detailing. Emmy's True Thirties Dress does both of those things. The careful layout and design of the striped pattern on the bodice of the dress helps draw the eye to the narrowness of my waist, and packs such a visual punch that you will receive compliments where ever you go! (I kid you not - I keep a tally when I wear this dress because it amuses me so much!)

Please forgive my modern hair and 1780s earrings - I was doing a hell of a mish-mash that weekend!
The skirt also has just a little extra fullness at the sides and *drumroll* pockets! I mean, really, what girl doesn't love every dress she owns with pockets?! It's just not possible! Seriously - this dress is just the best, and it takes a lot of effort for me to not wear it every day of the week! (Lauren would probably start to worry about me...ha!)

Emmy Design's True Thirties Dress retails for 209 Euro (approx. $226) and is worth every penny. It's well made, well designed, and will get you compliments and looks everywhere you go. If simple blue & white isn't your favorite - The True Thirties Dress also comes in a Poly/Cotton Mint Green, Blue, and White Striped Seersucker version, too!

Shameless Self-Promotion: I wore this dress with our new Claire Oxfords in White (Pre-Order until Aug 10th!), but I also love wearing this dress with Evelyn Oxfords in Tan/Brown and Marilyn Pumps in Red for a punch of sassy color!
