This is going to sound very silly but for a long time I didn’t really think about where clothes came from.
I mean, they came from a store and I knew that someone sewed them using fabric but as for the PERSON who designed them? Never gave it another thought.
Until the movie ‘Clueless’ came out in 1995.
I’ve always noticed tags on clothes and sometimes they had a name on it but I assumed it was the brand and for the most part I was probably right. Occasionally I would see the name and it was the name of a person but again, I never considered who the person was or why on earth there was someone’s name on the dress I was quickly trying on before my mom returned home.
In the movie the main character has a quick conversation with her dad when he sees her wearing a dress.
Mel: What the hell is that?
Cher: A dress.
Mel: Says who?
Cher: Calvin Klein.
Again, this sounds very silly but it was a lightbulb moment. Of course someone had to design the dress.
I am not much of a brand girl. There’s not many designers that I really care about or seek out, but it’s still something I notice (and avoid if I think the designer is a horrible person).
This little scene from the movie popped into my head when I saw this dress at a thrift boutique. I took it off the rack because it was kind of cute and it wasn’t a color I had a lot of in my closet. It was a Calvin Klein dress and it fit like a dream. I’ve had this dress in my wardrobe for years and I thought it was time to wear it for a photo shoot. So I did!
When I add something new to my constantly overcrowding closet I think about what occasion I could wear it to. This dress would be perfect for a wedding or another formal event that Hannah will likely never ever be invited to, but reality usually doesn’t stop me from buying an outfit.
At any rate, that’s the story behind this dress. I hope you like it!

What a wonderful dress! I’m a sucker for the fit and flare style mostly because I think it’s the most flattering shape for me and I love that shade of blue. My dress collection has always featured a few specific brands, namely Lane Bryant, Boden and Talbots, because they embody the style I like and they have things in sizes that work for a boy-sized girl like me. I love Old Navy’s easy summer dresses and I have one dress each from Gal Meets Glam and Ivy City Co, designers of exceptionally feminine dresses.

Very pretty dress for sure, defiantly could be worn just about anywhere
That’s the nice thing about certain types of dresses
Me I love my sun dresses that I can wear this time of year.
So very comfortable and cool
I love this dress, The color is great. The neckline and cut flatter your figure. The skirt is a good length to show off your attractive legs. If this were my dress I would wear it as frequently as possible. Thank you for sharing this classy look. LOL!
That dress is perfect on you! Great purchase, Ms. McKnight!
