I love me some ponte knit. I think that’s pretty clear from reading even one post of this blog. I wrote about needing a new photographer’s assistant dress and was hoping for a black cotton shirtdress with pockets. I never found one that was right, and bought this dress on a whim from Nordstrom last October. When I was still sans dress and we had a destination wedding to shoot in November, I took this one and it was perfection. It doesn’t have any pockets, but the heavy ponte hid sweat, didn’t crease and stretch out after 12 hours of wear and running around, and was utterly comfortable. I ended up wearing a *GASP* fanny pack with this dress for the shoot and it was even better than having loaded-down pockets because I could more easily squat and kneel to get the right shot or to fix the bride’s dress. Since then, I wore this same outfit with different shoes but haven’t featured it on the blog. I love how this outfit is stretchy and comfortable yet looks refined. I swear, I could live in ponte knit every day of the week.
