This is a tough call, but I think the Imogen dress may be my favorite M.E. Shirley piece. Ever. It may not be the piece I wear the most often (that honor goes to my Marcus tank, Sanders jacket, and soon the Esme jacket), and it's not what I'd reach for on a casual day, the way the aforementioned items are (as well as, say, the Joan sweater from a couple of years ago and the Bennett sweater from way back), but it's definitely my go-to "nice" dress. If I need to dress up for something, especially at night, I'm always going to want to wear Imogen (for daytime nice activities, I'd go for the Edith dress. which is not to say that I wouldn't wear it at night--I would and have). The dress is crazy comfortable (I wanted to sleep in it), so flattering, and so sophisticated but also super easy to wear. It's also really subtly sexy and can be dressed up or down with shoes, jewelry, etc. (like, I typically wear it with ankle boots, but I'd wear it with black heels or flats to something REALLY fancy).
I can't emphasize the subtly sexy thing enough. I feel so sexy in this dress, and I'm hardly showing any skin. It's just so beautiful, and it hugs my body perfectly. I'm constantly looking for things that require dressing up just so I can wear this dress. It's that good. Some of Creel's finest work!
