Yeah! Welcome to Anna Scholz Week!!!
The Black Label Utility Button Dressby Anna Scholz is like a floaty dream. The fabric feels parachutey - it is light, airy and completely soft. It has a high waisted tie, which nips the dress in, emphasising a high-waist and the yellow piping is a really elegant touch. Under the waist, the dress falls in an A-line and with very subtle side pleating compliments the curve of your hip.
I put this dress on and could feel the quality in both the cut and the fabric. Another thing I love are the big buttons down the front of the dress... to be honest, I can't remember the last time I bought/owned a button-down garment and I love this one, there are no air-pockets created around the buttons - which sit straight.
Of all the garments I tried for this Anna Scholz week, this was my photographer/boyfriend's favorite outfit I tried. You can see it looks natural and really summery... despite my wearing a double layer, it is also VERY light.
I paired this dress with the Black Label Lime Coloured Silk Cotton Fitted Shruginspired by how good this looks like on the Anna Scholz site. This shrug fit me like a dream. When I was ordering these clothes to sample, I requested a Large, but my size 20 body fit the Medium size sent to me - perfectly. I was actually fascinated by both the perfect cut AND the fabric. Silk Cotton feels GORGEOUS on the skin and is VERY light. This shrug, with its long sleeves will be no problem in Summer, it affords excellent coverage but is breathable and feels more like you're wearing air, than fabric!
I love this as a dress for the season and think it pairs perfectly with the shrug.

Remember to check back to my blog EVERY SINGLE DAY this week as I present a different look from the gorgeous Anna Scholz Black and White Label collections for Spring Summer 2011.
All items borrowed & returned to Anna Scholz fashions... despite me wanting to squirrel them away and keep them forever! xx
A huge thanks to Anna Scholz, Cliff and Winnie for allowing me to highlight the Anna Scholz designs this week.
**Please note that because these were loaned samples, ironing was not really an option... the creases in any garment this week represents folding lines only.
