Special Occasion Dresses

Nothing says elegant like this long skirt with seafoam top in textured silk

California’s URU has hand-dyed gorgeous textured silk for many years, incorporating bias cut designs that therefore are one-size fits most. In truth, these designs look great on all kinds of body shapes in the 6 – 16 size range. I know that is hard to believe, but you’ll just have to stop by and try a few pieces on to see what I’ve been seeing for years now. While not technically a “dress”, it is an excellent choice in the category of special occasion dresses.

In this image, we have a long, bias-cut skirt in the Pacific Blue color textured silk paired with a seafoam Cruise Top. The top features 3/4 sleeves and a clever woven/layered pattern at the neck. The top falls to the hips. Especially relevant is that all URU clothing is one-size-fits-most, working great on bodies from size 6 to 16.

The skirt has sold, but I can easily order it again for anyone who wants it. Just email me or call 425-776-3778.

Here’s the same skirt with a different top

Notice the beautiful movement in these two bias-cut pieces from URU. Even on the mannequin, you can see the lovely drape and flow captured in their signature textured silk fabric. Since each piece is hand-dyed, as a result you get unique, saturated colors you won’t find elsewhere. Most noteworthy, all URU pieces are cut and draped in such a way as to look great on a wide variety of body shapes from size 6 – 16, giving a whole new meaning to “one size fits most.”

The buttoned “Venice” top is a classic in their line for many years now, shown here in “Greek Blue”. Wear it simply as a top, or leave it unbuttoned as a jacket over a tank. Thus we have another example of a great choice in the category of special occasion dresses.

A Bit More Casual

Wear the Venice Top as a jacket

Check out this fun variation of ways to wear the Venice Top, shown simply as a top in the photo above this one. I paired it with the URU textured silk bias-cut tank top in Pacific Blue on the left, and with the Color Me Cotton bamboo tank in white on the right.

In addition, when the weather is warmer, you can drop the “jacket” and simply pair the bias-cut silk skirt by URU with a tank top for a more casual approach to the occasion.  I’m showing the two tanks here without the Venice Top as seen in the photo above this one. On the left is the same Pacific Blue dye, dyed in the same lot for an exact match. The bias-cut tank drapes beautifully on the body. On the right is the much more casual white bamboo tank by Color Me Cotton. This gives us an excellent choice for a more casual event requiring special occasion dresses.

Go For The Gusto

The unique top shown here is a collage of paintings by ancient masters, and even one by Georgia O’Keefe. Next, they dye it in Pacific Blue to match the skirt perfectly. I paired it on the left with the bias-cut tank top in the same color. On the right, close all buttons are to reveal a simple, long top over the bias-cut skirt. One size fits most sizes 6 – 16. This is perfect for many events that require special occasion dresses.
