Blooming :: Tulip Dress

Hi everyone! Hope you are having a great week so far!
One of the trend that is currently blooming with sensuality and zest is the tulip dress. The tulip dress got its name because it takes on the shape of an inverted tulip - fitted at the waist and balloons at the hip. As such it creates a shape that is forgiving to people with a heavier midsection and create curves for those with a less shapely figure.
Most tulip dresses have wrapped drapings at the bottom but this one just has a blooming pocket on the side giving it a more modern flair. I love how captivating this dress is with its simple structure and bright turquoise hue.
Tulip dresses makes for a great investment piece as they can be worn for a night out in town or incorporated into your work wardrobe simply by pairing it with a tailored blazer. Talk about an effortlessly chic piece!

  84. Thu, I feel so horrible about the AI giveaway :( I tried calling my contact but her mailbox is full. I'm guessing she's been out of office for quite some time now and that's probably why we haven't heard back. I just emailed her general company to see if I can get an alternate contact in her place. Hoping to hear back!

    Beautiful dress here! I'm a sucker for pleated details :)

  85. I'm sad...was just at H&M the other day and definitely missed this beauty somehow. That closed-front tulip shape is SO PRETTY, and I love the asymmetrical pocket. Really classy!
