“Smart, Chic & Made in the USA” spotlights American-made clothing for professional women and their families. This “Weekend Edition” features something that you’ll love to wear when you’re not in the office.
Happy Friday! Here’s a perfect little summer dress by Milly that looks so chic and effortless. The Milly Madeline Dress is made from super-comfy navy stretch jersey. The matching self tie at the waist adds shape and creates lovely draping around the waist. The dress also has one front slash pocket – very handy.
But what I really love about this dress is the beautiful gold and brown rings that embellish the neckline. This dress would be perfect for a summer vacation – it would travel well and you wouldn’t need to add any jewelry. The Milly Madeline Dress is Made in the USA from Italian fabric – my only complaint is that the dress is labeled dry clean only.
The Milly Madeline Dress is available from Piperlime.com for $267.99 (reduced from $335). The Milly Madeline Dress is also available from Saks for $335 - Saks has more sizes available and includes a video that shows how lovely the dress looks in motion.
While we’re on the topic of Made in the USA, my bejeweled Oka b Alexandra Sandal in Pearl just arrived on my doorstep. They are fantastically comfortable and gorgeous – the picture looks great, but can’t capture the shoes’ sparkly iridescence. The Oka b Alexandra Sandal is available from Amazon.com in Pearl, Dirty Martini, Copper, and Sable – $40 extremely well spent!
The Dirty Martini version of the sandal would look even better with the Milly Madeline Dress featured in this post. There are two options in Dirty Martini: the Oka b Alexandra Flat Sandal (shown on the far left) and the Oka B Wedge Sandal (shown on the near left). Both are $40 from Amazon.com. You can check out a full selection of Made in the USA sandals in this recent Commandress post.
