maker's mark

One of the big events we got to go to while in St. Louis for fashion week was the Industry Night presentation.  I was pretty excited to attend, because there were a couple designers showing whose work I really enjoy.  One of those designers was Eva Franco, which was exciting because I have a couple Eva Franco dresses, including the one I'm wearing in this post (and this awesome one too)!  One of my favorite memories from the weekend was taking photos in the runway at the Industry Night presentation before the show started and having Eva herself run up and join me!  It's not often you get photobombed by the person who designed your dress!!  Before the runway show I was hanging out sipping on wine and Eva's mom came up to me and we chatted for a bit.  She was adorable and clearly so proud of her daughter.  She showed me photos on her iPhone of this dress hanging at multiple Anthropologie locations where she'd seen it in the store.  

If I remember correctly, this dress is the #1 best seller at Anthro right now!  I paired it with black tights and some black heels to go out for a lady date the other night, so it's going to be a great winter date night option too!  The fabric is super substantial and structure is architectural in a feminine way.  Fun and funky!  I bet you could even style a collared long sleeve shirt underneath with the collar poking out the top for an eclectic outfit!  Maybe even with some colored tights.  Black and white clothes are so fun to play around with because color-wise they're a blank slate.
