Evelyn Is A Dress Too

Thursday, August 12, 2010


I just had to post this adorable silk dress from London based label TBA that bears my namesake.  Yes, it is called the Evelyn dress and I love that fact as Evelyn isn't a particularly common name these days, much less a name for a really pretty dress.  TBA stands for To Be Adored and this fresh young label make elegant, ladylike clothes with a timeless feel.  The collection is inspired by an Edwardian children's tea party and reminds me a little of Karen Walker's Angels collection from 2008 which was also inspired by the same time period.  I love the pintuck details, full skirt and cute little black Peter Pan collar.


I found the dress on fantastic Australian online store Maximillia who stock a great range of New Zealand, Australia and international labels including Karen Walker, Ruby, Ellery and Romance Was Born.  The Evelyn dress is $343 (aud) and available for pre-order now, it's also available in a pretty mushroom print, but I personally prefer the ivory version.  One of the cute features of Maximillia is the sketches of different garments on sweet doll faced models.  I love the sketch of the Evelyn dress (below), it's just such a shame she's not blonde like me or I would adopt her as my profile image, perhaps time for some makeover photoshop?
