Lord knows I've blogged and tweeted about my beloved Rachel Pally, but let me now tell you about my favorite dress.
This is my Rachel Pally White Label Maxi Dress. I'm sure the style has a name but I cannot recall what it is.
I love this dress. This is the most comfortable thing I own.
I believe this dress retailed for $298. But I got it for much, much less at one of Rachel Pally's amazing Sample Sales. I mean, they're epic. She opens up her warehouse and you just cannot believe the goodies on sale at a discount. I even got this dress in another color. A BRIGHT color. I loved it so much I wore SALMON, you guys.
To this day, I do not know what happened to the other dress, though. I went to put it on one day and it was gone. I haven't a clue where I left it, who took it or what fairy flew off with it. The thing is gone. Leaving me with the one dress in black.
The poor thing, it is worn out. It is a bit stretched out in the shoulder straps and the elastic is kind of fraying out of the fabric across the top of the dress. But I don't care. I love my Rachel Pally White Label Maxi Dress. I wear it. I wear it to the office. I don't care.
One of the reasons I love Rachel Pally is that not only does she, a fashion designer, make a line for plus sized women. She makes items that are not grandma attire and her clothes are SO comfortable, you could die. I also own two pairs of RP WL pants. I sleep in them. They were probably $600 (I'm exaggerating) but I got them cheap at the sample sale and much like my dress, the most comfortable things to ever touch my skin. So I sleep in them. I lounge around in them a lot, too, but I love to sleep in them.
It's like having a crush on a boy but a dress and pants.
Anyway, I felt obligated, as I put my dress back on the hanger tonight, to write a loving tribute to it and also thank Rachel Pally. It is not often someone like me gets to wear designer clothes. In fact it's next-to-never. Not just because of price but because of size. And she makes it happpen. It's magical.
I love my Rachel Pally White Label Maxi Dress.
