The Model and Me: Frankie and Dash spring-summer 2019

Nikki ParkinsonFashion, The Model and Me 8 Comments

Brisbane-based label Frankie and Dash has done it again with its spring-summer 2019 collection offering fabulous prints, colourways and shapes to see you through this summer and beyond.

You’ll find block colours, stripes, dots, and florals in dresses of all lengths, playsuits and jumpsuits. The vibe is very much one that fits the relaxed party and holiday season ahead.

I fell in love immediately with the custom-painted print I’m featuring in this post. I’m wearing the off-the-shoulder maxi but it’s also available in other styles … be quick, it’s selling fast online. If you can’t see what size you need, also check out the stockists’ page. This label is a favourite of independent boutiques around Australia.

You didn’t think I’d go a spring-summer season without showing my shoulders, did you? HAH. Never. The shape of this OTS is everything for me. I love the way the overlay sits across the bust, creating a line that hints at shape. And I love that you can opt to wear this dress one-shouldered, or strapless – just by changing the way you pop your arms into the dress.

The skirt drapes beautifully and generously to a frilled hem, guaranteeing extra twirl-ability every time you wear this dress. The fabric – a viscose/silk mix – is divine on the skin.

Wear with wedges as I’ve done or swap out for a flat sandal or slide. Then insist someone pass you a cocktail. STAT!

  1. Oh wow! That looks really beautiful! I love it when you do these Model and Me posts! I have been reading your blog for over 10 years and what attracted me to your site is that your body shape is just like mine! ( So, normal size) You gave me the confidence to try so many new outfits! That dress looks so cool and pretty, I’m going to have to try it too! I really love that you’re doing more of these. I want to try your clothes range too, but don’t find that silky technical fabric that comfy. Too much like PJs. Scary! Thank you!

      Hi Sue, thanks so much for reading for such a long time! I totally get that fabric is such a personal thing. We also have gorgeous rayon fabrics as well. I personally don’t pass anything that doesn’t feel good on the skin!

  2. Hi
    I am not a fan of off shoulder dresses and tops, but I love the boho style of the skirt. I love the Nina Proudman style so much.. Thank heaven the culotte and wide leg pant are coming back…they remind me of those great 1940s movies with the gorgeous cut of the trousers worn by Gene Tierney and Katherine Hepburn
