A Vacation Worthy Dress

In just over a month, the BonBon Rose Girls will be embarking on a tropical getaway with our darling husbands! Naturally, I’ve been planning out my vacation wardrobe since the moment we booked the trip. Dresses of various types will surely make up two thirds of my suitcase and one particular Free People frock is begging to join the others!

FP one sunburst maxi dress

Enter the mullet dress. Blogger and jewelry designer extraordinaire, Wendy Brandes, recognized the fabulosity of dresses with high/low hemlines, a.k.a. mullet dresses. Her use of the term cracked me up the first time I read it. Is she a hilarious or what? Update: It should be noted that although Ms. Brandes introduced me to the term mullet dresses, she didn’t coin it. She definitely, however, showcased just how popular the look has been!

She even featured a gorgeous group of bloggers rockin’ mullet dresses over at Huffington Post! Inspired by Ms. Brandes and my fellow bloggers, I feel a mullet moment coming on.

Can’t you see me sporting that Free People number while enjoying a morning cup of java on the balcony, watching the ocean waves lap at the shore? Le sigh.

    The term “mullet dress” has actually been around for a very long time…

    That being said, it think this is a gorgeous and absolutely perfect vacation dress!

    I think there are a lot of terms that have been around, but are brought to popularity by someone!

    @The BonBon Rose Girls, hehe- it is!!! I just mean it is a term most bloggers and magazines use- and have for awhile. Actually The Man Repeller used it on her blog today as well!

    @Alexis of NorthOnHarper, I meant that I started using it because of her, but that clearly didn’t come forth in my cold med induced gibberish. Le sigh. It’s like arm party, we all use it, but we all first heard it somewhere right?: )

    I definitely don’t claim credit for “mullet” but I will give myself a pat on the back for recognizing that it was going to have a big moment!

    That’s a great example of one. I’m still holding out for my Zang Toi gown!

    Snaps to you indeed! I was attempting to say that you inspired me to use the term. Clearly me writing through the haze of cold medicine induces confusion. HA!

    I haven’t seen a dress in quite awhile that I’ll actually need to make a comment on. But this dress is absolutely exquisite, if you are talking romance and other worldliness! I looked at the other examples of mullet dresses and this one is by far the best!
