Yet another lovely colleague of mine was in search of a dress to wear to a friend’s wedding, and in helping her scour the net for the perfect fit I stumbled up on two wonderful websites:
Sunday Brunch offers a beautiful–and quite diverse–choice of (strictly) dresses hailing from a variety of designers. To name a few: Mimi Turner, Heidi Merrick, Mel en Stel, and Quail. The price tags can be a *bit* hefty, but if you’re looking to invest (or looking to splurge!) it’s certainly worth checking out. I have my eye on…all of them? Judging from the contact information page, it appears as if SB is based in NYC (surprise). Extra bonus: SB offers FREE shipping to customers within the 48 contiguous US states who sign up for Sunday Brunch, The List. So sign up!
Frances May, unlike SB, offers a nice selection of menswear choices (and one section entitled “unisex”…which mostly includes accessories and tees) and boasts a brick-and-mortar store in Portland, Oregon. So it’s not all that surprising the store has a “sustainable” section (and sale!) and specializes in “innovative independent designers” such as A.P.C., Alexander Wang, and Church & State among many, many others.
Take a peek and compile your wish list. I know mine’s ready to go.
