Dressed Up

Psynopsis Missoni Knit Dress

Psynopsis Missoni Knit Dress
Let's assume it's your heart’s desire is to ask me: 'What is your 'go-to' outfit?'. Then I would answer you: 'My go-to outfit is a dress'. A dress = 1 item, no hassle. And when it comes to dresses one of my favourites is my old Missoni knitdress. I love it and have worn it to death, which resulted in it getting longer, and loonger, and loooonger… (perhaps I shouldn't have washed it, but could you be bothered to take an often worn dress to the dry-cleaner every time it needs freshening up? You could? Oh, okay...) In the end I decided to sew same elastic bands into the dress (just like the curtain skirt.) Now I’m hoping to get a bit more wearage out of my fav dress.

Hugs & kisses, my dears, and: What is your go-to outfit?

dress: missoni, shoes: dr. scholl

That dress is just glorious, Sabine! Chic yet understated, I can understand why you love it so. Gorgeous setting.
Mine's a maxi skirt printed with the Bayeaux tapestry, a ribbed vest and a denim waistcoat. It jumps out of the wardrobe at me when I'm dithering about what to wear. xxx

Thank you, Vix! Somehow I had a hunch that your clothes of choice wouldn't be a beige skirt and a white shirt ;-)

OMG! Just beautiful! I love Missoni!

Fashionistable said...

Missoni - I love Missoni too.. You have found a good solution to the ever lengthing length. I may have been tempted to put it in the tumble dryer to see if that would shrink it. I feel however your solution was the safer option. Ahh the winds of change. When they stop blowing so hard and settle down I may tell you what they brought. :-) Xxxx

Tanvi said...

i do think I have a go to outfit. You made me think and I didnt come up with anything!!! Your dress looks easy breezy wear! Love the colors on it!

OneCraftyFox said...

Hey gorgeous! This is a great look. My go to outfit is a dress too. Who can argue with one simple outfit you can just slip on and slip out the door? lol. I luv that you altered it to get more use out of it :)

Have a a beautiful day!

Maddy said...

What a gorgeous dress!! Love that you take matters into your own hands to make it wearable. I have a bad habit of tossing things that no longer fit to my liking :o/

I saw that dress on sale in Germany earlier this afternoon.
It suits you well and the colour composition combines beautifully with your hair and skin.

I wear mostly dresses and skirts, of course there is the odd pair of trousers and shorts, but I adore skirts!

My "To-go-outfi" is Red silk knee length dress with golden heels and scarf. Trust the lady is in good form today;-)

Leia said...

That is a GREAT dress! I couldn't even tell it was stretched out till I read your remarks. My go-to outfit is a dress as well - so easy and comfy!

ca'n't agree more - a dress really is just so easy. and that missoni looks killer on you!

Sherin said...

I love the dress. Its so unique. Hmm, my go to outfit is probably a pair of baggy jeans and sneakers.

naomemandeflores said...

The easy and lovely option, right? This dress is so cute, I love it!

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

That dress is utter perfection! It would seriously be my go to outfit if it were mine. I love everything about it. Always have had a weakness for Missoni :)

My go to outfit is most definitely a dress. It changes on the season but it's always a dress.

Hope u have a fabulous day sweetie & thanks so much for the bday wishes & sweet words :) xoxoxo

Dancing Branflake said...

Audrey Allure said...

I love the print on that dress!

Dusk said...

Ahhh gorgeous! Love this dress on you... it is you. Unfettered yet complex and interesting, clear, clean silhouette but vibrant and colourful, practical yet girlie, multi-tasking too!

Hmmm... I'm not sure what my go-to outfit/item is... I don't think I have one!!

Silver Strands said...

Wonderful! Beautiful! Love this post. My go-to: plaid skirt and white T. SO comfortable.

Kazuko said...

no - what an amazing idea, the thing with the elastic straps! and i agree: when i don't have time and/or the nerve to dress-up i also love to throw on a dress (in my case it's a really old, simple, black cotton shift dress) - and i'm good to go. but your dress is a stunner!

The Simply Luxurious Life said...

A dress makes so much sense for a go-to outfit. I recently have been trying to purchase more of them whenever I discover them, which is usually when I'm not looking. Something I always have to remind myself is that men don't have the luxury of wearing such lovely garments, so why not revel in it and look fabulous doing it? By the way - I love that dress. Enjoy your day. =)

Indie.Tea said...

Right now, my go to outfit is also a dress...a striped long-sleeved dress, and ankle boots.

Clare said...

Lovely dress! My go to outfit is tights, a big shirt and a mini skirt. Always comfy :)

drollgirl said...

my go-to item is a dress, too! easy! i have been obsessed with buying summer dresses lately. i just can't get enough of them. it has been hotter than fire, and one light-weight piece of clothing (plus skivvies) is about all i can handle most days (particularly when i am not in a freezing office at work)!

Clare said...

Dresses ARE such an easy yet chic option. This dress in particular is aweeesome

shari @ little blue deer said...

Missoni, I knew it from the minute I saw it! One of my favorite designers, weren't you clever to do the elastic! I'm with you, dresses all the way! XO!

Poppies and Sunshine said...

Great dress! It looks fab on you! My go to outfit lately (because of the heat) has been a simple tank top and shorts (preferably sailor shorts)! It is just too hot to wear anything else.

Martwa Marta said...

the hotter it is, the more maxi stuff i wear. so at the moment my go-to outfit is the stripped maxi dress combined with flat sandals.

and your dress is gorgeous! love the print on it!

notjustmedical said...

The dress is fantastic on you - I love old favourites. My go to item is my H&M Garden Collection brown shorts...I can't stop wearing them!!

Style Odyssey said...

a perfect go-to piece...at first glance before reading, i just knew it was a missoni. the label is unmistakable! i miss my missoni skirt. i washed it by hand and it...shrank. it did "grow" a bit, but was never the same. *sigh*
