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!
