Floral Bomb Starring Bailey44
These days no one has money to spend on a dress that can only be worn once or twice. I will let you know now that I am the queen of the transition dress. About 6 years ago I discovered a long sleeve V-neck draped wrap dress by a brand called Bailey44. I wasn't familiar with the brand but really thought the brand name was cute. I tried it on and remember being instantly in love with the fit and comfort of the dress. It was the perfect dress for work, cocktail hour and everything in between. It could even be worn to church. "How's that for a transitional dress?" It was fitted but not tight, just the way I like it.
Soon after my purchase I started working with another contemporary brand that gave me clothing allowance for selling their clothes. So, I slowly forgot other contemporary brands including Bailey44 because now I had really no reason to shop. Everything that had been missing from my wardrobe was now taken care of through the clothing allowance.
Fast forward to present day, I spotted the Bailey44 collection at a department store recently. I have been looking for a floral dress for two months now in preparation for spring/summer. The minute I saw the Object of Desire dress I fell in love with Bailey44 all over again. The soft colors in the floral print worked well with my skin tone. The dress is black which is of course my favorite everyday color. This A-line sun dress is attractive, comfortable and lightweight. It can take me right into summer with ease.
I decided to look more in depth into what Bailey44 represents to get an understanding of why I am so drawn to this brand. I found that Bailey44 is a brand based out in Los Angeles California created by two fashion industry veterans with expertise in design and sales. The brand celebrates the modern woman's real life; they focus on the feminine form and use soft luxurious fabrics that move with a woman's body. Bailey44 purposefully designs clothing that can take you from day to night. Effortlessly classic and cool is how Bailey44 describes their pieces and I have to agree.
It's great when I find a brand that really gels with my style personality. As a wife and mom I still want to be chic, sexy and move about life with confidence. All I can say is keep doing your thing L.A. girls because here in NYC Bailey44 is much needed and won't ever be forgotten AGAIN!
