Dress The Population Spring 2013

Dress The Population spring 13 looks

Dress The Population Mini DressIn New York City I was introduced to the wonderful Dress The Population, whose sparkling mini dress went on a zillion outings with me over the festive period as I got my shimmer on in Manhattan at Christmas. This spring, the delightful team at Dress The Pop asked me if I’d like to try some of their new collection and of course I jumped at the chance to collaborate with them again.

Launched in July 2011, this LA-based brand have a heavy focus on the movement of fabrics, evidenced nicely this spring with lots of layering and flowing, asymmetrical cuts.  The dresses in this collection are perfect for parties and weddings – pastel and monochrome colours mix and mingle with bold jewel tones and shimmering metallics so you have plenty of choice.  I chose two of my favourite pieces from spring 2013 for the outfit post here. I chose them because they are perhaps also the most versatile, the Lylah chiffon and lace cream skirt with side splits and Cara black chiffon tank.  The tank is also great worn with denim shorts or jeans or a maxi skirt.

I love how Dress The Population help you make an impact on a budget.  Click HERE to view their facebook page.  Click HERE for their website.  Many thanks to Dress The Population for the items featured in this post!

Metallic Mini Dress: Dress The Population

I’m sorry, what was that, Blog Reader? Too soon to be thinking about Christmas and New Year’s Eve parties? Oh I don’t think so. At least, not where this sparkling number from Dress The Population is concerned.  It had me at ‘hello’ and makes me feel like Cleopatra. ‘Nuff said and where is my bath of milk?

Let’s get one thing clear, Blog Reader – it’s not that often that you see me go mini-short. Not with a dress that is.  I can do short shorts, granted, but that’s mostly when I’m in casual-weekend-mode or keeping cool in the heat.  I’m willing to make an exception for this amazing Kim Copper Zipper Dress which I think is perfect for holiday parties – a super sexy number to get those legs out and dance the night away in.

Dress the Population are a brand I only discovered recently.  Designer Franklin Morales launched the first collection in the summer of 2011.  Developed and produced in Los Angeles, the styles are heavy on movement, asymmetry and edgy cuts.  Lots of dresses and skirts.  I like this outfit below – their snakeskin print maxi skirt with split and fitted bra/cropped top.

Jewel tones are also a signature.  I give you Exhibit A, below:

The label can be found in a number of stores and boutiques – check their Facebook page for further information.  You can buy this dress from Revolve – The Dress The Population online shop opens soon.

Anyone else with me on metallics for autumn / winter?  Anyone else shopping for their party dresses already (anyone?!)

Wearing: Kim Copper Zipper Dress from Dress The Population available at Revolve.  Heels, Mango.
