My new favourite everything dress

Yesterday I bought my new favourite piece. A dress from Moire in Bondi. I love it, I don't know how I'm going to stop wearing it. I'd been searching for a quality basic dress that I can easily pop on for a little while. Something that can be dressed up for night time or comfy and easy for a trip to the shops or the beach. I wanted one quality piece that worked for everything rather than lots of different pieces. Moire don't claim to have and eco consious philosophy, but their concept of 'stretch comfortable cotton clothing that is ageless and timeless it adapts to all body shapes, all seasons and all shoes' works for me and the less is more concept. Also, they are made in Australia - it is not very often I get to buy clothes made locally.
