It’s no secret that even with care, white garments can get a little stained in the sweatier regions after a while. And there is nothing more exasperating than to lose a much-loved item in your wardrobe simply because its appearances are beyond repair; those sweat stains can really age an item!
So when it comes to buying white garments, I only choose pieces that are in natural, breathable materials such as cotton, silk, and linen. They must also have plenty of breathing space (such as dolman sleeves) or be as far from the underarm region as much as possible (sleeveless, and not right up in the armpits).
Sure, bleach may fix the problem –though it may not add to a garment’s longevity, but why not try and avoid it entirely?
This cute little number which I fondly call my LWD fits my criteria perfectly. I also appreciate the fact that it isn’t one’s typical strapless summer dress. Those are cute in their own way, but for less sunburns and to be able to wear this in more settings that may require a bit more covering, this Juicy Couture dress is just what is called for.
Dress: Juicy Couture eyelet dress (2013)
Shoes: GAP classic ballet flats, Cognac (2015)
This picture was taken during a jaunt by the Rideau Canal with a friend. With her help, and Nature blowing gently through the trees, the shot turned out to be a bucolic portrait. I felt like Anne of Green Gables skipping down Lovers Lane, and my dress was dancing with the wind.
