The girl who wore only dresses

Should I reveal, you will be surprised with the endless number of dresses overcrowd my wish lists. Do I plan of restricting myself to wearing only dresses? I honestly do not know but I find the idea very entertaining. I am amazed to hear some women find dresses uncomfortable, they can’t sit or walk freely they say. Why would she walk with the lack of grace or take a sit without elegance is beyond my comprehension?! I’ve always loved dresses, perhaps one day my jeans with wear down and my trousers won’t fit. That day and each day thereafter, my hands will reach for that whimsy flirty number, the something happy dress, and sexy, ultra feminine.

I couldn’t have asked for a better design from Whistles, the Miriam striped dress is a dream come true. Is made of linen, thick for German spring (and summer), with a little heart shape cutout backside, for the sake of showing bits of skin. Here comes the best part, the dress has pockets and a shape accentuates the waistline. Can you tell how much I’m loving it?

    Oh, Tatiana! That is a gorgeous dress. I love tea length dresses. They are so so ultra feminine. Some say that horizontal stripes are not flattering to the figure, but take it from me, I don’t know how they get that idea, because this dress on you is the stuff of dreams. The flare; the pockets; the material. Oooooh! And that little bag is so cute, and its design just perfect with that dress.
    Friday love, Jo x

      Could it be the stripes on this one are quite wide?! I bought this dress awhile back Jo, was counting days to wear it:) Have a nice Friday as well! Our girl Stella has a special day today:)

        You once said that long dresses do not suit your petite figure. Well this look proves that statement wrong. I hope this will be your look for summer. Oh, I do hope your next home will have a walk-in wardrobe, or a spare room to house your outfits.
        I was wondering what has happened to our Stella. So today’s the big day then.
        Have a lovely weekend.

    Yes!! I absolutely agree with you! I also love love dresses and would choose a dress over jeans anytime, any day! I have so many sundresses but have been looking for a cute tea length dress and still can’t find one that fits. Maybe because I’m pretty petite (5’1″) so the right length is what is hardest. Do you have any tips on how to wear a tea length dress for girls who are petite?
    Xoxo,

      I am 5’1” as well sweetie and the particular dress fits me just fine:) I know what you mean, I had a hard time finding the perfect length as well. I have an old post regarding brands for us petites, you can read here: https://tbymallano.com/2016/12/27/best-brands-for-petite/
      Bottom line, it’s better if you choose European brands:) Hope I helped

    I absolutely love dresses and skirts too! I also don’t understand why some ladies are so opposed to wearing one unless it’s for a special occasion they say.

    And this dress looks sooo elegant on you!

    I’m following you now! Please check out my blog and if you find it interesting, follow back too! It would mean so much to me πŸ™‚ <3

    This is such a sweet dress and it so flattering. I find dresses to be so comfortable, but it would have to fit in the right spot. I prefer cinching at the natural waist. πŸ™‚
    I love the little details including the keyhole cutout in the back. I love that bag. I got the size large last June and have worn it a lot. It’s a great piece to carry around when the weather is nice. It always feels like you’re going to a resort with that bag. πŸ™‚
