Twirl Dress

Hands down, the fashion statement of the summer around here was this dress, worn ceaselessly by Trixie:

The picture above is a stock photo, but here are a few shots of Trixie wearing it – variously – as a museum dress, a hiking dress, a princess-meeting dress, and a dinner dress. There seems to be no occasion that would be inappropriate for wearing it.

The primary attraction seems to be the major twirl factor, owing to its chiffon skirt overlay.

I’ve been wrestling it away from her once or twice a week to wash it, and overall, it’s held up well.

I originially ordered the dress from CWD Kids, but then I discovered that the brand – Bonnie Jean – is available in many styles from several other retailers.

In a major shopping score, I discovered that Dillard’s has many other Bonnie Jean dresses on final clearance, with some equally twirly ones as low as $10. 

I scooped up several other styles, including a back-up of this beloved 2014 staple.

Twirl on, Trixie. Twirl on.
