Monday Obsession: Mara Hoffman Dashiki

The spring dress topping my spring shopping list.

Shop long enough in this city and store owners will get a sense of what floats your style boat. To wit: an email I received from January, owner of Third Street Habit in Old City, which said, “This outfit reminded me of you.” I clicked and saw what has become my standby spring/summer look: a dress or tunic over a pair of flared jeans. (In my book, pretty much every dress looks cooler over pants.) I’ll wear it like this, or with a pair of wild platforms for true ’70s style. Who knows? Maybe shopping for spring can will the season to hurry on up and get here.
