One minute you’re dreaming about wearing a childhood gingham dress – then next its almost became a reality and soon arriving on your doorstep. Here is me wearing this lovely style wise direct gingham shirt dress.
I have a confession to make and this is going to sound damn right silly – when I was young I would wear a lovely black and white gingham dress all the time. It was my favorite dress and even when I grew out of it, I still refused to throw it away. Sentiment attachment if you will. It drove my mum mad! I would pretend I was Dorothy for The wizard of Oz and a tornado is going to blow me away.
Even now as an adult I still think of me being that kid wearing a gingham dress and pretending I’m Dorothy. I once went to a school costume party and I turned up in my favorite dress, everyone was asking ‘where your costume Anna?’ – I answered ‘I’m Dorothy, duh!’.
I still think of those time when I was young wearing that dress. I never been able to replicates that black and white gingham dress. What I think also make it special for me is that, it also had these lovely embroideries designs on the front. This could be why I love all the embroideries designs trends on clothes – it brings me back to my childhood gingham dress.

However, there was one specific outfit that caught my attention. This Gingham floral embroidered shirt dress.
This look almost like my childhood gingham dress. Oh my god! It was fate – we were destined to meet in some mysterious way.
This style wise direct gingham shirt dress doesn’t exactly look like my childhood dress. But it has the same back and white checked pattern and the embroidery was in the same place – with near enough same design.
How spooky is that?
I couldn’t wait to have this delivered and I was like an excited kid at Christmas. I’m also a sucker for shirt dress as I find normal shirt cling to me too much and often doesn’t have the right cut. I feel shirt dress would solve that problem for me and I can wear it either smart or casual.
This style wise direct gingham shirt dress is a match made in heaven and this is what I look like while wearing it.
Admittedly – as with all clothes – it was a little baggy and long on me. The dilemma of a short person. However, on the sleeve there a second button making it easier for me to roll them up.
The material is super lightweight and airy – making a perfect summer dress to throw on.
As always with a shirt dress you can either wear it buttoned up and worn as a dress; or loose unbuttoned and team it with jeans and a vest. That another reason why I love wearing shirt dress – the flexibility.
The weather hasn’t been that nice enough for me to wear this out. When I was taking these pictures for example, one minutes sunny and I needed my sunglasses. The next dark clouds and the heaven opened up. But hopefully soon the weather will behave itself and I can wear this out and about.
So what started as a far off memory of my childhood dress – soon enough almost became a reality with this style wise direct gingham shirt dress.
You never know, you might just find that childhood dress on the website. So go take a look today.
