The Ultimate Knitted Winter Dress

Having made the commitment many moons ago to reduce my wardrobe to a predominantly black and white aesthetic with a strong focus on minimalism a silent hunt has been ongoing in pursuit of the perfect, yet elusive winter dress.

For anyone that knows me personally, one character trait that often gets applied quite rightly is stubbornness and when it comes to ideas I get in my head particularly when it comes to clothes I rarely budge. With that said the pursuit of a winter dress has been made more difficult as there were specifications I had in mind from the get go: knitted, fitted and midi length as being only 5’3 it is important for me to try and elongate my frame. So though the hunt has been long it was completely self inflicted and now fortunately fulfilled… finally.

I recently uncovered Sydney based label, Friend of Audrey and given this a brand that pays homage to style icon Audrey Hepburn by producing designs founded in minimalism can I get a #matchmadeinheaven followed by an almighty #hallelujah. When I first laid eyes on their Midnight Open Back Knit Dress I knew this was the one as no box on my list was left unchecked. If only said fortune could be applied to my non existent love life that would be swell but until than I will step out of the house in confidence in my favourite new wardrobe staple.
