Please Dress Up!
Though every season we vow to invest in quality over quantity, a tightened shopping budget and the desire for instant gratification always lead us back through the doors of H&M.
Luckily we now have another alternative: convertible clothing and accessories. While this idea isn’t new by any means, it’s become a full-on trend as of late and we only see it getting bigger as these tough economic times continue.
Less can be more--we, for one, are looking forward to finally purchasing better quality garments, getting creative with styling and freeing up some much needed closet space. Now we turn it over to you to give some of our favorite innovative pieces a try and bid adieu to fast fashion.
What, may you ask, stopped us in our tracks, derailed us from our afternoon lunch run and drew us into the Shotwell boutique downtown? These convertible silk wrap dresses by Please Dress Up!, the San Francisco label launched by indie designers Grant Doolittle and Judy Berbarian, who relocated to Paris in November. (Clearly our loss and Paris’ gain by the looks of their Spring/Summer ’09 Infinite Possibilities collection).
