I don’t know too many women who get excited over making a fashion statement on a rainy day, unless perhaps she just bought a new Burberry rain coat or Wellingtons and are excited to test them out! With that being said, I was determined to wear my new Persifor dress, courtesy of the brand, on a day when the weather was less than stellar. Paired with an aqua Land’s End cardigan that perfectly picked up on one of the colors in the print, contrasted with a pair of coral and crystal Sorrelli stud earrings, patent leather taupe pumps, my favorite khaki trench, and a smile, the rain wasn’t going to ruin my Sunday!
As dresses are one of Persifor’s signature items, I knew I was getting impeccable fit and quality from the Smitty Dress with Swizzle Sticks in Nantucket Blue. This whimsical, limited edition print is a collab between artist Happy Menocal and Persifor, inspired by the drink stirrers or “swizzle sticks,” from the renowned Swizzle Inn located in Bermuda (and the originator of the first Dark and Stormy). How cute! This dress will be a permanently-packed item when going on vacation to warmer locales, or for when I’m stuck in the city, dreaming of my next vacation.
Made of quality grade nylon (polyamide) and a highly stretchy spandex (elasthane), this dress ensures ease, comfort, and great shape — all elements necessary for multiple wears, as well as to beat the rainy-day fashion blues!
