The Perfect Denim Dress

Topshop denim dress MOTO

Twice, this dress has been in Topshop in the last few weeks, and twice it has sold out in-store and online.  By chance, I saw that it was back in stock online today, so I added it to my virtual basket and checked out faster than my whippet can catch a squirrel.

I’ve looked into other (pricier) versions of this denim dress and to me, this one is still the best one.  It isn’t SO dark (like this Alexa Chung for AG one) that it leaves indigo dye on everything and looks overly somber with black tights.  It isn’t too light with streaks and patches of obvious-faux-distressing (a pet peeve of mine) either.  It isn’t too long and frumpy, nor too short and tarty. It isn’t too fitted, nor too much of a sack. Goldilocks style, this one is just right.  I plan on wearing it with bare legs and a low heeled sandal or silver glitter cowboy boots as soon as it arrives, and I’ll wear it with black tights, black boots, and a whole mess of sparkling necklaces once cold weather rolls around.  It works beautifully for 1970’s styling too; just add fringed bag and  feather earrings, and who’s more 70’s than you? Nobody!

You’ll definitely be seeing this on the blog once I receive it, but I wanted to dash out a quick PSA in case anyone else needs this too.  I think it is a workhorse of a dress that can be styled in so many ways.  I’ve seen it in person (but not in my size) at the store, so I know the denim is lovely (not too thick like a denim jacket, and not thin like chambray either).  There is a similar one on ASOS with copper buttons, but I’ve not seen the quality of the denim.  The silver buttons on the Topshop version are easier to style for me, especially since I intend to wear these boots with it a lot!

      They’re still in stock at Seven Boot Lane, Suzy! xx PS: if you want to see a fancier gold version of glitter boots, have a look at the Roger Vivier ones I posted today on The Stylopedia Facebook page. They are AMAZING!

    Hi Lisa,
    While I’m not that much into denim dresses I must admit that this one has got quite a sexy cut. I love shirt dresses because they’re comfy and sexy at the same time. Looking forward to tomorrow:)

    I definitely want to see it with the sparkle boots – I think you could carry it off amazingly!

    I need this today! I just started a job where we dress super casual but I’m still in sales so I need to be presentable when clients come in and this is perfect for that.

    Fingers crossed it isn’t sold out when I do my birthday shopping this week.

    I fell in love and ordered this today! I hope the sizing is true — they were sold out of the size smaller and the size larger than the one I ordered.

    Now that I’m not working, I love being able to buy clothes I really want to wear. Thanks for sharing!

      Oh, I’m SO pleased Gina! That makes you the 5th friend of mine to buy this dress. We’ll have to have a convention somewhere; we’re all in different countries, lol! I love mine and wear it a lot.

      I don’t know how Topshop alters their sizing for the US, but in general, a US size is two sizes larger in the UK… so if I wear an 8 in the US, I wear a 12 in the UK. I would imagine they either adjust the sizing charts or re-label clothes, like Gap does. Keep me posted!

        The site says the sizes are US, and they provide a size chart, so hopefully it fits. If so, I’d love to attend the International Convention of the Perfect Denim Dress!
