Which is why I'm belatedly posting this review of a jersey dress from Mokkafiveoclock, an Etsy seller and a long-time reader of In Pursuit of Pretty Things.
Jersey Dress c/o Mokkafiveoclock (similar here)
When Monika (the talent behind Mokkafiveoclock) contacted me to ask if I'd be willing to try and review one of her dresses, I was more than happy to oblige. I'd actually been stalking her Etsy store for quite a while, just waiting for the right time to pick up something - it's always chock full of pretty, pretty things (currently eyeing this dress - in my shopping cart as I write, this skirt in colors #1 and #17, and this dress despite the fact I am not a bridesmaid - it's just too lovely). Knowing my penchant for comfy, pretty, jersey dresses, Monika sent me this one - and needless to say, I just love it.
It's a summer weight dress, so unlined. At first, being used to the heavier, lined dresses of Bailey 44, I was worried that this one would be "too light." I actually didn't find it to be a problem - in fact, when I layered a slip under it, I realized there wasn't all that much of a difference, and so left it off. In warm weather, it's fantastic - I ran around San Diego in it perfectly comfortable the whole day - and in the evening, when the temperature falls, I layered a cardigan over it, and it was great that way too. Being mindful of my petite stature, Monika made it to my measurements specifically. I don't know if she does this all the time with the dresses in her shop, but I really love the proportions, the drape, and the flow of the dress.
This particular color is great too - in the spring and summer, the pool blue is just perfect, and in the winter, I think it'll be great to brighten up my gray sweaters and black tights and boots. Taking a peek at the store, it doesn't look like this color is available anymore, but Monika may have others available too.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by.
