Bathrobe Designed by JLo

Recently I was in Austin, and I took a detour - a Style Dtour you could say, haha - to stop at the "Best Kept Secret in Fashion". It was really quite impressive. UAL is a clothing liquidator, so the clothing is new, but heavily discounted. They have a range of clothing from contemporary brands (Rag & Bone, Clover Canyon, Alexander Wang, etc.) but I think the real standout merchandise that they carry looks like it walked off a fashion week runway. There were a few swoon-worthy pieces by Johanna Ortiz, Delpozo, and Rosie Assoulin, and while they weren't suddenly cheap, they were like 80% off. This location also had men's clothing, just FYI.

I ended up buying a few pieces, including this dress that was delightful described by a friend as a bathrobe designed by JLo. I couldn't agree more.
Dress | Thakoon
 This particular piece is Thakoon, and I couldn't wait to wear it... so I did, not even waiting to iron/steam it. I was trying to find it online to get a sense of what the retail was, but could only find this photo:

The dress is made in USA, and designed from a pretty thick cotton. It has what can should only be described as a flying buttress skirt. You can either pull up the wings, and they will stay up and exaggerated, or you can smooth them down, making it a little less out-there. I also added a small belt to provide a pop of color, and better define my waist.

 If you find yourself in one of their four locations, I would definitely suggest checking them out.  
Thanks for stopping by!
