Oh, this lovely, lovely dress. So ages ago I interviewed Zahra Aljabri about her website, Mode-sty. Recently, I ran into her at a conference and she said she still gets bales of traffic from that post, which just makes me unspeakably happy. In the post, Zahra mentioned Canadian clothing designer Jessica Rose and said that her layering dresses were a big hit with Mode-sty customers. And what with the circular nature of the world, Jessica reached out to me a few weeks ago to ask if I’d like to give one of her signature layering dresses a spin. And yes. Yes, I would.
So these dresses are two-parters – a sleeveless jersey sheath, and a draped top. You can, of course, wear them separately, but they’re fantastic for cold weather wear because the pieces look amazing together and allow you to layer up and add warmth to your look. They’re all made in Toronto from 95% bamboo jersey, and I am head over heels for mine. Husband Mike has declared it his favorite dress of mine. Ever. And considering that it is a comfy, washable, flattering, artisan-made dress with sleeves, I think it might be in my top five, too.
You lucky Toronto folks can visit the Jessica Rose boutique in the Distillery District! Tell her I say hello!
