I frocked up last Tuesday night to celebrate the new collection from one of my favourite designers, Deanne Mayocchi, the talented woman behind the Australian-made label, Maiocchi.
The in-store event featured some of the fabulous women who blog and share their outfits on #everydaystyle, showing how they will wear their favourite pieces from the new “Head in the Clouds” collection.
There is so much to love about this new collection – amazing feminine and flattering designs; mind-blowing exclusive fabrics and a whimsical, retro theming that is signature Maiocchi.
In this Model and Me post, I’m featuring my favourite dress (and fabrication) from the new collection, as well as a clever cardi you’ll want to add to your trans-seasonal wardrobe.
Yes, this is a two-for-one frock scenario, thanks to its reversibility. The concealed press-stud buttons make it all possible.
I just love this shade of blue. Oh, who am I kidding? I love ALL shades of blue. This is extra stunning though.
The shape also works for me, with the waist sitting high, almost under the bust and the skirt a slight a-line style that skims my hips.
I’m wearing this with the v-neck to the front but you could wear it with the higher round neck front and centre as an alternative.
I just love the addition of the bamboo spandex cardi for a trans-seasonal cover-up but also as a way to offer a sun-safe alternative in summer.
A note on availability, sizing is showing as limited online. Do contact Maiocchi to see if any other sizes are available in store.
Do you love a feminine dress that doubles its wearability? A fan of the short sleeve cardi for spring?
