Waiting for Spring...

Hamming it up in my DarylK Spring 2012 Dress

I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to spring this year.   It's been a long long winter, and I'm really missing the sunshine, and along with it, light breezy dressing.  Last summer I purchased this great dress from Daryl K.   I wore it a few times at the end of the season, but just knew it would still look fabulous this spring.   Let's hope I still fit into it after all the pommes and wurst I've been eating to chase away these chilly days.

and last summer when I first tried it on in Daryl's studio.


In collaboration with artist Spencer Sweeney, this abstract printed silk JumpDress is a cross between a dress and a jumpsuit.  It looks like a dress but feels like a jumpsuit.  It is a subtly asymmetrical shape that has a step-in opening creating a pant leg; it then wraps around the body to close with a zipper in the front.  It is comfortable, functional, simultaneously elegant and simple.
