Destiny was calling last week while vacationing and “window shopping” (yeah, right) at surf shops. Upon touching Patagoina’s Morning Glory Dress, it was fit to be tried. Previously, I’d been aware the quality and style of Patagonia but with my northeastern knowledge of the line being ski jackets and fitness, never did I expect to fall for a sexy little dress, made in yoga-quality threads. This formfitting number clings to all the right spots, while allowing for movement and absolute comfort. (Think yoga weight, yoga movement, in flirtatious couture.) The figure is slim fitting. To sum it up, I walked out of the dressing room nd without hesitation, the hus said “buy 2” and the guy working the kayak rental desk commented “wow, you have to buy that dress”.)
Even more shocking than the look, the feel and the quality: the price! I truly expected to lay down a Benjamin or two for this number. Nope. Came in under $60 at North Beach Outfitters in OBX. Call them to place your order and add a Women’s Bandha Top and/or Morning Glory Skirt for free shipping. Check out their other lines before ordering. I loved the Gramicci sundresses, beach sandals, and fantastic line-up of bikinis and surf shorts. Last week, all bikinis were 20% off, so be sure to see if that special is still available. Shipping is free when you spend $100.
Vacationing in the Outer Banks? Stop by North Beach Outfitters in the Duck Waterfront Shops and tell Dave that Julie from MWS sent you. Otherwise, call 252 . 261 . 6262 to place your order.
(By the way, if you’re lucky enough to be in the OBX and can stop by, get ready for fab customer service. We were floored. Really.)
