The midi dress you need in your life
Spoiler alert, it’s the Park & Fifth Fairfax dress
I always keep an eye out for hassle-free long sleeve midi dresses. I’ve found a few good ones at Zara over the years, but I also try to shop for slower fashion brands (a work in progress and an article for another time). When I saw in Vancouver Park and fifth to go out with the Fairfax dress, I immediately added it to my wishlist. I love that these dresses were made right here in Vancouver and that their pieces are produced with a low amount of textile waste in mind. You can read everything on their sustainability efforts here.
I recently modeled for Park & Fifth’s Spring / Summer 2021 collection, which was such an amazing experience, especially after being locked up for a year. Everyone on the set was so supportive and excited for me, despite the fact that I’m not a professional model at all and have felt what I can only call “ blah ” ever since I started. had a baby and was in quarantine. All their new dresses are on fire, you can check them out at their Instagram and of course, their website.
It’s a very roundabout way of saying that since we started collaborating they gave me a few pieces and I knew it would be my pretty Fairfax dress. It is so beautiful that I ended up with the same dress in two fabrics. I love how I can wear this midi in so many ways (even backwards for a v-neck) it fits my lifestyle perfectly! The only piece that is not technically suitable for moms is that the python fabric is dry clean only and the delicate black polka dot fabric is hand washed, BUT I hadn’t planned on wearing them every day , so, it’s all right.
the The Park & Fifth Fairfax dress is currently on sale right now and I strongly encourage you to go! If you have any sizing questions let me know or book a virtual fitting with their awesome team to make sure you get the style and size that’s right for you!
