What I Wore: Woven Slip Dress

12 January 2017

Hello Parry Checked Dress

Hello hello, I have one more summer look to share before I head off to the UK :)

I have fallen crazy in love with this Ellie Woven Slip Dress from Hello Parry. It’s a slightly different take on the usual slip dress and I think it’s a great summer dress that’s not floral!

Slip dresses are not for everyone, as they can be quite low at the chest, low at the back, the material can be quite flimsy, thin and see through, they can be a bit shapeless and they can look like pyjamas!

This dress is still a bit shapeless… but it’s fitted at the top, so it’s quite flattering.

It has a high neck and high back (I simply wear a strapless bra), and it also has adjustable shoulder straps so you can change the height of the neckline. I’m wearing it quite high in this photo, but worn low also looks great.

The material is lined with an oh-so-soft cottony material (it feels super lovely on my skin), it’s thick and not see-through. The houndstooth print is handwoven, not printed, so it has a kind of rustic and natural look to it.

I love its effortless shape and cute raw-edge details – it’s very summery. It comes in a blue or black too.

I wore this to a birthday BBQ in the park, but I didn’t get to stay long, because I had to rush to the shops and then go home to pack.

I got heaps of compliments on the dress, I think because it looks very unique.

One stranger, a well dress lady in her 50s, asked if she could touch it, to feel the fabric, but she was feeling my thigh (omg!) and she asked if she could buy it off me? For her daughter. Er like right now? What did she think I was going to do? Just buy it yourself from the online store maybe?? Haha it was so strange. I wrote the URL on her phone.

Anyway, if you’re looking for a more standard silky slip dresses, Hello Parry have some nice ones, like this Nellie Hoop Dress and Omalia Silky Dress.

Also wearing Clare V Handbag, K Jacques Sandals, Sportsgirl hat, Ray-Ban Aviators.

Happy shopping!
