currently craving: the shirt dress

In the past, shirt dresses haven't really been my thing. The cinched waist, thin belt, visible stitching, awkward length, and tacky buttons didn't vibe with me. At all. In addition they seemed a bit too formal for my personal aesthetic. Untamed hair and untied chucks don't mesh well with office wear (okay, they might if you're a model-- which I am not.)

But lately I've been seeing more and more shirt dresses of different silhouettes and they've sparked my interest. In particular, the loose, almost shapeless mini dress types have been on my shopping radar. Something akin to a men's shirt, but tailored for a woman's body. A dress in black, white, or denim color (because I live in a world of neutrals) falls perfectly into the transitional "wear now and later" category. Or really in the "what the hell, just wear it now" category cause one day it's 80 and the next it's 60.
