Every woman needs a Ribkoff dress

What can be more flattering for the over-40s woman than a Joseph Ribkoff dress?
This is one of my favourite dresses: I've had it for a couple of years. It's by Canadian designer Joseph Ribkoff. Three things I love about it:  the material is very figure flattering - it skims and doesn't cling. It's lined, but not in a heavy or sticky way. And thirdly, there are no zips. You just pull it on. The dres has a few sequins too, which you can't see in the pictures. Who can resist a few sequins?

I would happily buy a lot more from this brand: I did have another dress last year but it was shorter than I like so I gave it away (fool!). Check out their current collection here. Very classic but usually with a twist. I love it. It's a little pricey too, so I'm always scouring eBay looking for bargains.

I've teamed the dress with my crystal block heeled sandals. There's some cobalt blue in the dress so I'll probably wear it with my new bag in that shade when we're on holiday soon. Because, dear reader, the dress has another huge benefit:  it doesn't crease!

  1. I have a Ribkoff top! I agree a fabulous brand. Great fit and has a knack of making you feel special xx

    1. Something about the fabric they use - very flattering!

  2. I have a couple of Ribkoff items and adore them! And your dress is spot on---you look incredible, Gail!

  3. I've not heard of this brand, so I'll be checking them out! This really suits you Gail, and I love the sandals. x Jacqui

  4. such a pretty dress. Ribkoff makes some great things!

    1. Wish I could afford a lot more of it! Thanks for the visit.

  5. Now that is one bright, beautiful, bold and fun patterned sheath Gail. It suits you. Truly loving those block-heel sandals. Looking fantastic!

    Welcome by on Thursday and linkup with me pretty lady. Thanks, Ada. =)

    1. I will certainly do that Ada! Thanks for the visit.

  6. Stunning, Gail, and you wear it well. A dress like that doesn't take any prisoners and you have the perfect body to do it justice!

    1. Thanks Mary! I must say it's surprisingly forgiving - there's a black swathe of fabric over the stomach and the material drapes rather than clings.

  7. I often find Joseph Ribkoff when thrifting and have picked up a couple of them. Just last week I scored a lovely one. When I can find the vintage pieces I really like them. This is a very well known brand here.

    Love this dress you've chosen.


  8. This sheath dress is very chic. I see very you make the claim. But unfortunately Ribkoff doesn't see it that way. I still have none. LOL. Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style.

  9. I love your dress, it's a beautiful print. I'd never heard of this brand before. Thanks for linking up :-)
