Dress Up A/W ’13

2012 was the year I finally started reading Joan Didion, which makes me late to the party, I know. I’d put off reading her stuff for ages, but once I read Slouching Towards Bethlehem I couldn’t stop. I read a couple of her novels, and then I read The White Album and came across that old packing list of hers that’s been blogged and pinned and tumbled so many times that I could practically recite it by heart.

The Australian label Dress Up’s new collection is inspired by that same list and also by Didion’s minimalist ’70s style. Oversized sweaters, dresses you can slip on in a hurry, silk blouses that go with just about anything. It’s one of my favorite collections of the season.

    I love the colors! it is very minimalist 70s and kind of reminds me of the blouse I found while we were shopping at madewell – which makes me happy.

    I love Dress up so much. There is always a piece that I desperately want.

    Love all these simple, neutral pieces – especially that first dress. There’s not much I like better than a good white dress.

    This is lovely, so understated and elegant without being fussy. I have a young baby and have found myself drawn to simple, comfortable 70’s inspired pieces and simple 70’s inspired hair and makeup. A lot of the fuss from my wardrobe has recently been sold or given away in favor of clothes like these. Thanks for the inspiration.
