- Cream and Black Pin Dot Crepe - Do you remember the craze over the Zara dress back in 2019? I know, I know, it feels like decades ago, but there was a time that everyone wanted this amazing pin dot print to make a dress. Well, we got our hands on some, in our staff fave Moda Crepe, and it will work so well for this wrap dress. The fabric is thin yet mostly opaque, a feat for a light colored crepe, and the fluid drape is silky and divine. The cream color is the perfect winter neutral gives you an ideal palette to play with jewelry or colorful layers. A gorgeous fabric for the holidays and beyond!
- Burgundy Rayon Challis - As you scroll, you'll notice a theme this month with deep, rich reds. To me, as the temperature gets cold, I just want to curl up on the couch with a glass of wine or better yet a cup of mulled wine and stay cozy. This fabric, a floaty, silky soft challis, is that feeling in a fabric. The semi fluid drape will give great movement and swing to this dress, and the color will add instant luxury. Go glam with some dramatic make-up and a matching lip color, or soften it up with a cream cardigan and some flats. This dress can do it all!
- Night Sky Navy Rayon Challis - I must admit, I've been trying to use this fabric for several boxes, and I'm so glad to finally find the perfect application! The constellation print has a hint of novelty to it, without veering into costuming, and I love the contrast of the deep blue with the bright red stars. The long length of this dress allows the print to really shine, and the semi-fluid drape creates flow to the dramatic wrap skirt. If you want to make a statement dress, look no further!
