Shop the look:

Now, this a dress I don’t own anything else quite like! While there are plenty of high-collared, floral dresses in my closet. This is certainly a new style for me.

While this dress is demure and modest, it also has just a hint of sexy thanks to the sheerness of it. (There is a lining underneath, but it stops way above my knee.) And how can you not love the embroidered details of this dress? Embroidery is all the rage at the moment! (I think…I’m not terribly trendy, but I believe I did read that somewhere. Haha.)

I really enjoyed the neckline of this dress as well. Again, very detailed…and I have a bit of an impulse to buy anything and everything I see with a unique and/or high collar! It can be my favorite part of a dress or top.

This dress was another recent Stylwe find. This one isn’t 100% silk, it’s a silk blend. But I still really like it and found it to be very comfortable.

I had worn it for our last big night out in Sydney. We had dinner and drinks at The O Bar and Restaurant and went to see one last play at the Sydney Opera House. It was a really lovely way to say goodbye to Sydney. I’ll be doing a separate post on that soon!

Does anyone else like high and/or unique collars on their tops and dresses? Let me know in the comments!

      Aw, thank you!

  2. Thoroughly Modern Emily says:

    This is such a sophisticated, effortless look, Lindsey! I absolutely love the embroidery and the colors really pop against the black background! It’s such a lovely, unique piece. And YAY for fun collar details!


    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Oh gosh, thank you so much, Emily! 🙂

  3. Lauren-Blair says:

    Ha, as another non-trendy blogger I second that I think embroidery is trendy now. Either or, this piece looks great! I keep wanting to try StyleWe but other things win out. I think I’m nervous about the fit/quality/etc because the site is so large and overwhelming! You look great and I really like this shift dress/high neckline on you!!! XO

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Phew! Glad I wasn’t making that one up, haha. And thank you, Lauren! Ah yes, Stylwe has a TON of stuff on their website. But, I have 4 things from them now and they’ve all been great quality. The sizing can be a little wonky, though. So, just be sure to look at size charts before ordering. 🙂

    Everything embroidered I love and I am willing to buy this dress, it’s amazing! I love high collars and the flowers are so sweet! You look really amazing, for the last night out in Sydney! Very beautiful and how cool is it to go to the Sydney Opera! Hope you have a lovely weekend, dear Linsey, now I am also rushing 🙁

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Aw, thank you, Denise! Best of luck with your upcoming flights! 🙂

      Thank you so much, Lorna! 🙂

  6. Very pretty dress. I have one with the same idea (sheer outer dress with embroidery on it over an opaque inner dress) and like the concept.

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Thank you! Ooh yours sounds beautiful too! 🙂
