So, I designed a dress…. HOW FREAKING COOL?! Ok, let’s be honest I didn’t do this alone. I had a lot of help from Emma of Emma Knudsen but still I feel pretty damn proud!
The Holly Dress is a knit sweater dress that we designed with the holidays in mind, but I also love pieces that can be worn everyday and that’s what was at the forefront of my mind when bringing this dress to life. Like many things, holiday parties are going to change this season. Smaller intimate gatherings at home and dinners with friends will likely replace the large Christmas parties we attended in the past. The Holly Dress was designed with this in mind- whether you’re meeting a small group for an intimate dinner, or hosting people in your home, this dress will have you holly-day day… see what I did there?! LOL ok, I’ll stop now. This beautiful dress comes in four colours: Eggnog, Mountain View, Jet Black, and Holly Berry which is exclusive to the Holly Dress. In true Holly fashion, these dresses can be styled countless ways through the Fall and Winter! If you’re needing a little style inspiration be sure to follow me on IG as I will be wearing these babies all winter long!
Now, let me answer a few question I have been getting since sharing the dress:
How much does it cost?
When does it go on sale?
Saturday, November 7th!!!
What size should I get? Does it fit true to size?
I would definitely stick to your true size. The dress will loosen up with wear, but it will go back to its original shape once it is washed. It is a lighter weave so when it is tighter it will stretch therefore it could become sheer.
Is the Eggnog colour sheer?
I wouldn’t wear black or hot pink underwear under it that’s for sure. If you wear nude undies, you will be just fine to wear nothing else under it. In the photos I am not wearing a slip, just nude underwear.
If I am local to Vancouver can I do local pickup?
When will these dresses ship?
Emma will be working as soon as Saturday, Nov 7th to get the orders out but it may take her up to a week to get all the orders out.
Will you do a pre order if it sells out?
This is something we can’t determine right now. We will definitely discuss this if the dress sells out!
What is the dress made out of? Is it itchy?
Not itchy at all! I have SUPER sensitive skin and so this was super important to me. It is a blend of organic cotton and bamboo rayon- so comfortable!!
What are you measurements so I can use you as a reference?
I am 5’4, 31″ bust, 26 inch waist. I wear a size small. In the photos of the Eggnog (cream) dress, I am wearing a size XS. I like the way the small fits better.
