I've had this Dear Creatures dress for about a year. It was my first dress from Dear Creatures and is still one of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe, definitely one of those special dresses. It works great as a summer dress (for days that aren't too hot, as the fabric is quite heavy), but it also works great in the fall and autumn with a sweater over it, or a top layered underneath. I absolutely adore all the details in this dress: the pleating, the peter pan collar with contrasting trim, the buttons, and the cut is just so lovely. I like that it's both structured and whimsical at the same time. I have a few more pieces from DC now, but I think this is still my favorite piece of theirs!
