Sretsis is one of those brands that I covet but can only afford in moderation. I am glad that they’ve become more popular in the U.S. recently with the likes of SHE and Revolve stocking them…more chances for them to go on sale! Sretsis is started by three sisters from Thailand…the name is the word “sisters” spelled backwards.

I only own a few pieces by them and this wool dress (80% wool) is one of my favorite. The dress is designed with a black bow in the middle of the strap in the front but I like to replace it with some colorful bows to spice it up. This is part of their Autumn/Winter 2007 collection and I always thought it would look terrific with some black gloves for a more refined look.

I typically wear a size 2 US/6 UK/36 FR with some room to spare but I have seen some styles running smaller than others. I wouldn’t recommend buying Sretsis online for your first time unless there is promise of free return shipping in the event that you need to exchange it for a different size. But they don’t skimp on material and everything is beautifully made…it’s pretty pricey but worth it to me if I can get it on some kind of sale.

Current coveting this dress, available through ASOS…was originally $1,044.70, now $313.41

And today’s outfit. I love my EMU Australia short boots but they sure get dirty quickly (this is a new pair that I started wearing last week and they already look dirty).

Also, just read an article from Jezebel on alterations. They make it sound like things can be taken down a size or two so easily…
