Touch of Quirk

I've never gravitated towards overly girly fashion. This means I scarcely wear pink, or excess amounts of frills and ruffles. Yes, this Dahlia dress is pink (albeit a lovely shade), and a very 'sweet' silhouette. But the unexpected quirky details such as the topstitching on the peter pan collar and the addition of militaryesque buttons on Georgette fabric has me coveting this dress! Just the kind of design I love.

Dahlia - Topstitch Collar Tea Dress

Dahlia is a British label that has grown in prominence over the years, memorable for its playful dresses often with a touch of vintage inspired quirk. I first came across the brand as a concession at Topshop's flagship store while at Uni in London.
