Three ways to wear a long and elegant dress in an outfit that doesn’t look like you really, really, really want to be at the beach but are not.

These are their stories.

Dun. Dun.

The following may or may not be inspired by real events. 


1. THE "I WENT TO A  GALA LAST NIGHT AND NEVER MADE IT HOME - HAD TO IMPROVISE AN OFFICE OUTFIT" OUTFIT
enough said. 
will my colleagues buy it? 
should probably tie my hair so the mess is less obvious. 


2. THE "IT'S TOO HOT TO WEAR SHOES BUT NOT HOT ENOUGH NOT TO LAYER" OUTFIT
heading to the beach, the farmer’s market, the office? you'll never know. xoxo Gossip Girl

3. THE "I’M GOING TO AN EVENT BUT I WANT TO LOOK LIKE A FRENCH GIRL THAT JUST CAME FROM HER LOVERS APARTMENT, OR LOFT - YEAH I FEEL LIKE HE SHOULD HAVE A LOFT - AND WORE HIS JACKET (UN)INTENTIONALLY, BED HAIR INCLUDED" OUTFIT
truth be told there is no lover and the jacket used to be my dads. but that can be our secret, right? you just witnessed the moment all the mystery I tried to build up dieD right there and then.

The dress is made out of Cupro, which is a cellulosic material made form reclaimed cotton linter, which is a part of the plant normally wasted in cotton production. 
This is a dress that I feel like one would be quite scared to buy for fear of only being able to wear it once to an event, but in truth with the right styling you can wear it just about to any occasion formal or informal, office or party and really capitalise on its versatility.
