The Joy of Summer Dresses

A recent outing to Ponsonby Rd for a coffee found me browsing Tatty's for the first time. I came home from my coffee date with several dresses, having spent... let's just say, a lot more than $4! When I recovered from the shock that comes with spontaneous purchases (and reckless disregard for finances!) I was utterly convinced that dresses are the way to go. No more searching around for a matching top to go with that skirt; dresses are light and comfortable, easy to wash, quick to dry, and you can choose a pattern to suit your mood.

Pink Chicken Spring Summer 2011 Collection

My excitement about dresses coincides with the release of Pink Chicken's Spring Summer 2011 Collection, so it's a perfect opportunity to show some of their fabulous designs for girls:

 Betsey Dress, Orange Floral; by Pink Chicken New York

I've not been a fan of yellow, but Pink Chicken's Zoe dress (below) has changed my mind! Wow, I love the way they have used this fabric. The front seam bringing the stripes together on an angle is a great effect. The pockets and the stripe across the chest add a nice contrast. A little flutter cap sleeve gives it a pretty touch, and isn't it just the perfect dress for hot weather!

Purple or lilac makes a lovely, feminine choice for girls if you are feeling a bit over pink!

Pink Chicken has a women's range of clothing too, and a philosophy of easy, breezy dressing that is no fuss and always stylish. Sounds very much like my new-found philosophy! Visit the Pink Chicken website to view the complete Spring/Summer 2011 collection - released on Sunday.
