Lacy Bluebell [Chi Chi London]

There are certain dresses I think of as goddess gowns. There isn’t a particular characteristic that qualifies it beyond being full length; sometimes they have pleated skirts, sometimes boned busts with intricate pleating or gathers; sometimes they have bishop sleeves; and sometimes they have full flowing circle skirts for ultimate sweep and swish. It’s one of those ‘I know it when I see it’ things, and to me this lacy blue maxi from Chi Chi London is a Goddess Gown contender.

Abstract Wrapping [Chi Chi London]

There are many ways the pandemic has changed my outlook on life and refreshed my sense of gratitude. One of the smaller, more insignificant ways it’s had an impact is the way in which it’s allowed me to reconnect with my natural curls and given me room to appreciate more casual ways of dressing. My love for 1950s silhouettes has not diminished even remotely, but it’s nice to allow oneself room in one’s head to have quiet, easy dress days rather than self-applying pressure that every chance to slay must be seized. Nah–now, and in future, I will cherish more casual days when I crave them, and dresses like this abstract wrap dress from Chi Chi London prove that being a little more casual does not mean being any less stylish.
