a.p.c. shirt dress, sz. 38 (4/6)
i bought this dress 2 years ago at Stels but have only worn it a handful of times because it was a little tight in the shoulders. i just tried it on again, and i need someone to help pull it off me because it gets caught in the shoulders. plus, it's tighter than i'd like around the hips.
this dress epitomizes a.p.c. at its best. super simple design, beautiful fabric and detailing, excellent fit. unlike their more recent designs, which seem to hang shapelessly on many of us, this one is fitted without being at all tight. the fabric is a lovely sturdy cotton-linen blend, and the color is a very soft pale lilac, almost a grey-taupe-lilac depending on the lighting. i would recommend wearing this during year-round, except when it's really hot. it also looks nice over pants.
i paid $240 (trying to learn from my mistakes, sigh), asking $50 including shipping.
