I have a few go to dress brands that I always reach for in my closet and always shop for. Lilly Pulitzer, Persifor and Draper James always make me feel polished and put together, and I love the ascetics. Plus, they are very flattering and easy to travel with. Since I know that a lot of you are always wondering about these brands, and whether they live up to the hype, I want to share why I love them so much.
Lilly Pulitzer dresses are so fun and flattering. They are cut to fit a woman's body, so they don't hang or gape, and a lot of the looks include build in bras. I always love the patterns, and the navy dresses are great too. They have a wide range, from fancy to beach coverups, so I know whatever the event I can find something at Lilly. Some of my favorite are the classic shift, the bread embroidered dresses, and the zip-up Callista. Finally, the quality is excellent - the dresses wash and dry clean to look like new.
Gal Meets Glam
Gal Meets Glam is a newer brand, and everything I have seen so far has knocked my socks off. The fabrics are luxurious and the silhouettes are all just lovely. In person you can tell how well made the dresses are, and how stunning the prints and colors are. I also love that they come in a wide variety of price points and fabrics, so they work for casual and fancy events. I love how romantic the cuts are as well, very Old Hollywood.
Draper James dresses are very well made, and the prices have lowered recently. I love that the dresses are all very bright and classic. The dresses are also quite flattering, and they all have pockets! I also love that they make collections for different, like football season and the beach.
I love Persifor dresses! The founder worked at both Lilly Pulitzer and J.Crew, and you can tell from the timeless silhouettes and the bright prints. The Carter dress is one of my favorites. It has pockets in the front and the cut is very flattering. My favorite part of Persifor dresses, however, is the fabric. They don't wrinkle! I've traveled with them to Europe, worn them throughout Disney, etc. and never a crease. Isn't that amazing?
I also love dresses from J.Crew and J.Crew Factory. There are so many options at all price points. I really love the faux wrap dresses they have right now. The prices are always great, and the clothes go on sale all the time!
