I bought this wrap dress back in late January/early February from Shop Ruche (or is it just Ruche?). Unfortunately it’s not available anymore because Ruche is actually closing their shop, so once they slashed their prices, pretty much everything sold out. I found the news quite sad because although this was my first purchase from the shop, I wasn’t expecting that it’d be my only purchase.
Back in the late 90s/early 00s, wrap dresses were all the rage. Well, anything wrap was in — tops, skirts, sweaters, etc. From my various trips into my mother’s closet, I can assure you all that I am definitely not lacking in the “wrap” style clothing department, apart of course, from dresses, hence this purchase. I love the idea of a wrap dress. It’s so simple, yet you can dress it up or down, wear it over a variety of seasons, and best of all, it’s comfortable. Also, if you’re lucky, you can buy them so you simply untie one knot and your dress is off — perfect for those early mornings (mine unfortunately is more of a makeshift wrap dress).
Although there are many trends from the 90s trickling into present day (many of which really need to stay strictly in the 90s), I’m really happy that there is a push for simple items that can be remixed in a myriad of ways. I still remember styles from a years back when everything was over the top neon prints. Not to say that I don’t love neon, which I do, but when that’s all you see in shops, it gets a little bit overwhelming and leaves little room for personal creativity.
