I have to say I’m absolutely smitten with today’s outfit! Kim and Proper, a San Fransisco-based, women-owned business, designs beautiful dresses for the chic, active, modern woman. I think I fell in love with every dress on their site! Each dress is a new twist on classic silhouettes. After much debate, I chose the Gigi dress to showcase in today’s post.

Kim and Proper’s focus is designing classic, timeless dresses for the active, modern woman. I chose the beautiful and stately Gigi dress from their collection because it looks like a something one of my fashion idols, Duchess Kate, would wear. The Gigi is the perfect, quintessentially classic dress silhouette. The simple v-neck, the midi hem, the cinched waist, and the long sleeves work together to create a dress that will stand the test of time. The sleeves also feature a delicately tied black bow, adding a hint of adorable whimsy.
I can easily see the Gigi being one of my go-to holiday party dresses. The material is luxuriously thick so it will keep me warm during the cooler fall and winter months.
I don’t normally wear dresses with hemlines that hit below my knees. I’m petite (coming in at 5’2) so longer hemlines tend to make me look shorter. To combat this, I paired the dress with a simple pair of nude sandals to elongate my legs. (For a winter/holiday party look, I’m going to try to pair the Gigi dress with a pair of black Alexander McQueen heels. So stay tuned!)
