"Over the years I have learned that what is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it."
— Yves Saint-Laurent
I love this quote from Yves Saint-Laurent. It's funny, when I was younger I thought of a dress as something for a special occasion. But now I think of a dress as something that's perfect for almost any occasion. Just one item to launder and wear, usually no belt or buttons to fuss with -- what could be easier than a dress? Donna and Proshat, our designers, create dresses that flatter your shape and feel fantastic on the body. My personal favourite is our Moira. Here's a pic, and then I'll tell you exactly why I love this dress.
Okay, full disclosure, I am not the model featured in this photo (I wish!) although we look very similar (I'm lying!). But in this dress I really do feel fantastic (maybe not as fantastic as this model does, but she is a model after all!). I love the Moira for a whole bunch of reasons. First of all, like all of Miik's stuff, it's made from super soft rayon from bamboo, so it feels great on the skin. Secondly, that ruching is the best invention ever. It hides a multitude of sins (let's not forget, I have had three kids, including twins!). Somehow that faux-wrap ruching detail manages to hide what I don't want to showcase and highlight whatever I'm proud of. And don't forget that V neckline -- I wear a tank underneath during the day for a more casual, modest look and in the evening I go completely crazy and show a little skin. I love to wear my Moira with capri leggings for a more casual tunic-style look during the day, and I love it with heels or strappy sandals for a night out.
Donna designed the Moira and named it after Moira Merrithew, who owns Stott Pilates and looks fabulous in our clothes!
Our Moira dress is available in french navy and black and though it's selling fast in our online store, there are a few sizes left and many of our retailers have it in stock.
