Hemant & Nandita is a brand sold at Anthropologie, REVOLVE, Shopbop, and Neiman Marcus.  This summer they did an exclusive plus size collaboration with Gwynnie Bee and this is one of the dresses from the collection.  The collab just screams Allie, colorful prints, boho styles, and breezy fabrics that work with curves and the summer heat.  This dress is simple perfection, and was utter perfection for the DC heat and extreme humidity.  This dress is so versatile; style with a metallic skinny belt and heels for a wedding; with a wide leather belt, ankle booties and a denim vest for drinks with friends; with a pair of flat sandals and a fedora for an outdoor concert or winery tour.  The faux silk can dress up or down with ease.  THIS is why I love Gwynnie Bee: new to me brands, exclusive collabs, and fun pieces to extend my existing wardrobe for far less than traditional shopping. I'm proud to be a Gwynnie Bee member for over four years and just see the company constantly improving their selection without sacrificing their customer service.  If you're interested in trying Gwynnie Bee, click this link for a free 30-day trial of the program.

    I would like this dress as a maxi too. I looked up Hemant & Nandita and am quite taken with their designs. So what if I am “old”. I like color and wearing it makes me happy. Am I going to have to move to India to be at home with bright colors? 🙂

    Look at this and it is silk! Maybe it’s ugly to some of your readers but to me it’s beautiful and a great expression of my still existing inner flower child.

    I bet you also ordered the drawstring maxi! Can’t wait to see if I’m right!

      It’s tough, I love this dress AND the other one I got from the line (will post soon) AND still have another dress from the past I’ve held on to and am considering buying. They’re all so great!!

    Love the dress – any chance it’s available for purchase?

      If you’re a member of Gwynnie Bee you can purchase items you rent. But otherwise I don’t think so, it was an exclusive collab with Gwynnie Bee. However I linked to the online retailers who sell Hemant & Nandita who may carry something similar!
