You know that whole “What X would you want if you were stuck on a desert island” question? What book (Cold Comfort Farm), movie (Singing In the Rain), food (Greg Malouf’s salmon tarator)? Well, I think I can pretty confidently say that if I was limited to just the one single dress for the whole rest of my life, I would almost certainly choose the One Dress from Ever By X.
I’ve had a bunch of questions about it since I first posted about it in 2020 – which i definitely understand: at $360 it’s an investment piece.
An investment is what it is though. In the year since I’ve owned it I reckon I’ve worn it at least once a week, through hot weather and cold. It’s been covered in toddler grub, mud, cake batter, sun cream, sand, seawater, pool water, cat fur, and it always bounces back looking just like new. It washes in the machine, dries in five minutes on the hanger, can be stuffed into the smallest crevices of a suitcase and still come out un-creased.
So yes. If I had to pick one dress that I had to wear to every picnic, farmer’s market, pool party, wedding, funeral, job interview, fancy dinner, or movie date for the whole rest of my life it would be this one.
So there you have it: Nine different looks from one dress! And if you need some help understanding how to tie it I made an extremely awkward video, which you can watch here:
Hello from Ireland! My daughter (almost 7) and I love your style! I’m returning to work on Monday after being home with my kids for 10 ish years. Needed some inspiration for what to wear and you have given me so many idea. We are amazed at your talent for making clothes and your eye for putting outfits together. Many thanks, Ciara (Kira) and Ailbhe (Alva), Tramore, Waterford, Ireland
I love the way you have styled this dress! It’s on my wish list but is a bit spendy for me. Seeing how you are wearing it makes me want to take the plunge. Thanks for all the ideas!
This looks amazing on you! Is this the “regular” length or petite length? I’m thinking of pulling the trigger but usually prefer slightly shorter. Thanks!
I have the regular length, and I’m 164cms tall 🙂
Hope this helps you make your choice!
Hello from Brussels,
Long time stalker here, I normally never post. This time, though, I would like to thank you so much for reposting about this dress. I saw your post last year (I think) about it, but didn’t manage to buy one then, as it was out of stock by the time I read your post! This time I didn’t hesitate, and was lucky, so now I am the happy owner of a black dress. It is faboulous! The only annoying thing was the customs fees, so I shall not get another colour, even though I am tempted!
