You may not be familiar with Gerard Darel, dear readers. But, I can assure today’s My Goodwill Find is a true designer gem. I didn’t know the brand when I snagged this piece for you from the Columbia Pike Goodwill, but I could tell by the feel of fabric that I found you something luxurious.
Upon a little perusal online, I found out that this dress originally sold for upwards of $250! Gerard Darel is a British designer that creates both clothes and bags. In the States, you can find his lines in upscale department stores like Bloomingdales. Lucky for you, this perfect spring dress can be yours today for way less than retail!
If your wardrobe is aching for more prints this spring, look no further. This Gerard Darel dress is a UK size 4o, so a US women’s size 10. It’s a dusty navy blue and ivory print that can best be described as an arrowhead pattern. The dress features a modest v-neck with short standing collar. The sleeves are three-quarter style with subtle cuff on each. The waist is accented by a wide, slightly shirred fabric “belt.” The top features a faux-wrap style for comfort and style, too. A lovely piece for a spring, I’d say!
This piece is unique in that it really is a statement in and of itself. In terms of what to wear with this, I would like the dress be the staring role in your look here. Think about nude accents like a patent shoe, nude bag and minimal jewels. If you are taking this beauty out in cooler temperatures, a khaki or ivory blazer would be a nice pair to the colors of this print. Here are few ideas!
I hope you get to snag this beautiful dress, dear readers!
