The Aleks Abroad, Island Dreaming Cotton
Are you known for instigating fun adventures overseas...and maybe causing shenanigans? Then you probably need the Aleks Abroad in your life. We designed this sleeveless halter-dress to be something you pull on and GO when you have no time for nonsense on your shenanigans. It goes great with kicks (or flip flops!) during the day or with heels at night. Modest v-neck, single button closure, above-the-knee length, sleeveless and an elastic waist. And obviously, giant pockets to hold your phone, wallet and keys. You'll turn heads in every room without even trying. We know this for a fact :)
The Island Dreaming cotton fabric was found in our local obsession, the Abed's fabric store. It's the silkiest, softest, lightest cotton fabric you've ever felt and will leave you dreaming of your adventure long after it's over. You'll want to wear this dress every single day.
Since each dress is hand-tailored WHEN you order it, you can check out our size chart for what works for you OR can choose our made-to-measure option.
The namesake and role model of this dress is Aleks Watkins, animal lover, athlete and an engineering student at Carnegie Mellon University. Her best advice to high-school students, "Relax a bit. Think about what you're actually passionate about rather than trying to check a bunch of boxes. It's fine if you don't know yet too--that's what adulting is about."
