Molly Moorkamp in Manhattan
Last week we had our spring reception for work–this event has gone through several iterations, but we worked hard to make this the best one yet! Our venue truly has the best food, staff, and setting, and I am always so grateful for the village it takes to make an event like this a success.
As the unofficial host of the event, I inevitably end up running around–from greeting guests at the door, to setting up flowers, to mingling. My attire has to work in all these situations and still look good. I had been stumped on what to wear, as this was my first cocktail attire event since the pandemic, and cocktail attire is always tricky to navigate. The Molly Moorkamp dress I chose fit the bill perfectly! (This dress is older, but is very similar to the Brynn dress currently in stock.) I wrote a little about this dress on Instagram, but felt it deserved its own blog post!
This blog is, at its essence, about editing. I’ve been trying to edit out the clutter in my wardrobe and fill it with fewer and better things. This dress is certainly #fewerandbetterapproved–I can think of at least two other events I’ll wear it to this spring along, and I’m certain it will be a stable in every season for years to come.
Besides the dress’s timeless and elegant silhouette, the craftsmanship is impeccable. The dress is fully lined, certainly rare in these days, whatever the price point. Something else I deeply appreciate about this dress is the way it was designed for an actual human, instead of an unrealistic mannequin. The size chart on the website is very accurate and the dress fit perfectly without having to take it to my tailor. The price might be a bit on the steeper side, but this is truly a “buy it for life” item that will take me everywhere for years to come!
