The Reiss Stuff

Walking down Newbury Street in Boston this weekend I did a double take. I was minding my own business when into my peripheral vision popped this dress (in salmon pink!).

It was on a (headless) mannequin at the Reiss boutique and exuded a winning mix of toughness (heavy hand, textured fabric) and femininity (almost-Christopher-Kane-esque undulating waves on the skirt).

I’m thinking about how I can pair it with a cardigan for day when I’m not attending an evening event.

Here’s the pink color, in a different (but also appealing) style:

I'd lengthen it just a tad, but would then be good to go!

Both of those frocks are just mouth-watering.

Wow--what a pretty dress! I'd wear it with a leather jacket to toughen it up.
