Career to Cocktails Dress from robin b.

Tuesday, June 12, 2018

One of the best things about being a style blogger is learning about fabulous new clothing lines!  I was thrilled when robin b. recently reached out to me to collaborate on a blog featuring this flawless little black dress.
robin b. is based out of Rhode Island (they're a Boston neighbor!), and the brainchild of owner/designer Robin Barrett Wilson.  Robin makes beautiful women's clothing that is versatile, timeless, high-quality and won't break the bank. After all, isn't that what we all want? 
This "Career to Cocktails Dress" is perfect with a little jacket or cardigan or by itself.
It's incredibly comfortable--the fabric is soft and although it hugs your body, it's not skintight.  The shape and fit of this dress is perfection--it's SO comfortable!
Work, work, work.
This past year has been soooo crazy due to moving twice and starting up a non-profit and as a result I've had zero time to workout.  I get many comments like "you're thin and can wear anything". This is SO NOT true!! I'm a skinny flabby person!
I was a bit nervous that without a jacket this dress might cling to my tummy-- but it's surprisingly camouflaging! The fabric has a nice weight to it and actually gives you shape!
The wide straps allow for a REGULAR bra (hallelujah)!

AND this dress is the perfect length, hitting just to the knee (I'm 5'6''). It's not too short (especially for sitting down!) and definitely not frumpy!
And then POOF, this dress instantly changes over for evening with a switch of accessories. Didn't I tell you that it's the perfect little black dress?
I added a sparkly necklace, statement ring and metallic clutch-- and I'm off for a night out!
I also love that this dress is wrinkle-free making it the perfect travel piece!
I give this fabulous dress two thumbs WAY up (it's that good!).
You can find it here along with the rest of the robin b. Essentials Collection
