Monday Must Have - Fredrick dress from Ingrid Starnes

Monday, May 6, 2013

It's been absolutely ages since I did a Monday Must Have post, but I've decided to bring them back as I see so many beautiful pieces all the time that I want to share and it's nice to have a format to do so that's more consistent.  Ladylike fashion is still very much around and I'm a big fan of designers that can create feminine pieces with a timeless feel but put their own twist on them.

Local label Ingrid Starnes is one of my go-to labels for well-cut garments that are winsome and have a carefully tailored look.  Every garment is immaculately finished and fits wonderfully, you can tell that attention to detail is incredibly important to this label. I love that the garments are a perfect mix of prim and playful that suit a range of ages, my mother's also a big Ingrid Starnes fan too.  The Fredrick dress caught my eye on the runway at last year's NZFW for it's delicately pretty print and pussybow neckline, I've always thought a pussybow makes a top or shirt more feminine.  I also love that the skirt length is a demure knee-length (it's gently pleated too) and that it's 3/4 length sleeves make it perfect to wear in this slightly cooler but not yet chilly weather. 

Blue is my all-time favourite hue and I love the softness of this chambray shade, (the dress is also available in a tobacco shade in this signature print too) and in lovely 100% silk, it's impossible not to feel amazing wearing it.  The Fredrick dress is available at Ingrid Starnes boutiques and stockists now or you can buy it on Ingrid Starnes online store here.
