When I originally ordered this midi dress, it was shown on the Bloomingdales website as having a crewneck front and a v-back—essentially the reverse of how you see me wearing it today. However, when it arrived, I found that the tag is actually sewn on the inside of the crewneck side, signaling that the v-back is actually a v-neck front. I’m not sure if this was a manufacturing error with misplaced tags, or if the stylists/model at Bloomingdales accidentally photographed it backwards, but regardless, I’ve now tried it on both ways and the knit construction allows it to be worn very comfortably either way. I don’t think it was necessarily intended to be reversible, but the reality is that you’re basically getting two dresses for the price of one! Error or not, that’s a major win in my book.
I wore this last friday to the Baccalaureate Mass for my younger brother’s college graduation. Not only can it be worn backwards or forwards, but the dress’s midi length and classic cut makes it perfect for everything from summer workdays, to rehearsal dinners, or even weddings themselves.
Speaking of wedding season, today is June 1st which means we’re looking at three months of prime wedding time! If you’re attending any weddings this season and not sure what to wear, check out the wedding section of my Spring / Summer 2016 Dress Memo which has loads of inspiration for everything from rehearsal dinners, to beach weddings, to black-tie weddings and more!
