Community Member Leslie <3s The Soda Fountain Dress


This month we are bringing you 4 love stories from our community. Not just any stories, though — these are tales of affection between our community and … their best dresses! We know what you must be thinking, but the feeling a good dress can provide someone with can be hard to find.

Your Dress: Soda Fountain Dress

Tell us what you love most about this dress. I love the full skirt. As my daughter tells me, “it spins really well.” Not that I spin in it at work. At least not when anyone is watching. 😉

How did the dress make you feel? Classic but fun too. I love the retro feel and silhouette of this dress.

Did you buy the Soda Fountain Dress for a specific occasion/event? I bought it to wear to work — I wear a lot of dresses and loved the look of the Soda Fountain dress.

How did you style this dress?  On this particular day, I was headed to work. I work in PR and never know what the day will bring, so a dress, heels and a blazer is my go-to combination for feeling put together.

Your look is super classic, what inspired you? I always say I was born in the wrong decade! I love ’50s/early ’60s fit and flare silhouettes. I try to keep it modern with the shoes and accessories, but often build looks around very retro-feeling dresses.

Anything else you want to tell our community about the Soda Fountain Dress? It’s a great dress — flattering shape/silhouette, and can be worn casually with a pair of flats, or dressed up with a blazer and heels. I get a lot of wear out of this dress…kind of wish I had it in every colour. 😉
