Have you ever been to the Biltmore in downtown LA? We popped into the Gallery Bar and Cognac Room for the first time recently to hear Luca Ellis sing Sinatra tunes and it was divine. The 1920s architecture is astounding and it’s a good spot to grab a generous martini. The Biltmore hosted the Oscars back in Hollywood’s heyday (proof: see the blown-up black-and-white photos of Old Hollywood lining the halls).

I wore a long printed silk dress by Sunner (that Bollare nicely lent me) and I had fun wearing it both long…

And short! I simply tucked part of the dress into a short slip I was wearing underneath for an assymmetrical knee-length version.

It took me a long time to hop on the long-dress bandwagon (I refuse to say “maxi dress” – worst name ever), but now that I have, there’s no stopping me. They’re so comfy and easy to wear, but you feel dressed up. I say ditch those yoga pants for a long dress instead (well, unless you’re actually doing yoga)! Sunner’s printed silk dresses feel even better and the vintage-inspired prints make you feel like you’re in a different era.

Do you wear long dresses or would you try out the trend?
