DON A LABOUR OF LOVE, MY FRIEND


Left to right: Khaki Wool Belted Dress, $164; Striped Dress, $217; Bubble Hem Sweetheart Dress, $162; Leather and Suede Gloves, $133

Beware: You are going to fall, and fall hard, for these pieces from Labour of Love’s beautiful collection of dresses, skirts, tops, and accessories… and especially at these bargain prices. This playful Bubble Hem Sweetheart Dress, a personal favorite of mine, can be tucked away in your closet ’til spring or pulled out much sooner for that fabulous—read: oh-so-warm–escape you’re planning for this winter. And in this surely practical, beautifully-cut wool shift (accented with an adorable button-tabbed belt!) you’ll be echoing the prim and proper aesthetic of our mid-century foremothers who were holding down the factory workforce with a fierceness–minus the sooty bandana and heavy work gloves. In fact, we’d suggest a quick trade of the aforementioned work gloves for this ladylike and sharp khaki green pair.

And last but certainly not least, this darling Striped Grey and White Shirt Dress with peter pan collar, cap sleeves, and waistcoat pockets–for me, brings to mind the late 1930’s day dresses which I so adore: modestly feminine and form-fitting in all of the right places. My advice to you is to scoop up one or all of these amazing Labour of Love finds—because at these prices everything but time is your friend.
