It was THE BEST DRESS SEASON EVER in Spring and Summer 2018. I added many dresses to my wardrobe, and so did my clients and friends. Sleeved, sufficient length, ample colours, flattering shapes, substantial fabric and great quality. I had to actually stop looking at dresses because I could have added even more.....

I had high hopes that the Fall & Winter 2018 colllections would offer a similarly brilliant frock assortment in heavier weight fabrics. I've been very disappointed.

  • I got ONE Fall & Winter dress at the NAS that's a workhorse, and that's been it (#1). Everything else is back to my usual rants: too short, skimpy, sleeveless, body con, Summery, flimsy, bad fabric and the wrong colours.
  • Or I find a fabulous Winter dress but it's north of $600 - which I personally don't want to spend (like #2). Or doesn't come in my size. (#3). Or comes in the wrong-for-me colours (#4, 5, 6).

I am fussy and picky, and I want it that way. Maybe I'm being greedy, and an entire year of the best dresses was too much to hope for. Or I'm looking in the wrong places?

Soooooo, I've been wearing my older Fall & Winter dresses till the cows come home, which is good too (#7, 8, 9 and 10).

Have you found the same thing?
