The Catalogue Dress

Source: Julie Duffy at Story-A-Day Challenged us to “Write an imaginary entry for a pretentious, high-end catalogue.” I love the J. Peterman catalogue and was a customer long before Elaine from Seinfeld had a job writing for them. I enjoy the stories and the clothes, so this was a no-brainer for me.

The yacht anchored in crystal blue water near St. Tropez and I ferried to Plage de Pampelonne.

Jacquelyn met the launch wading in, thigh deep, to greet me. The day was planned she said.

The rented cabana was in the center of it all, only steps away from the swanky restaurants which lined the beach. It was the best place to see and be seen she said.

Jacquelyn periodically waved to restaurant patrons, calling and promising to meet soon. We were going to dinner she said.

I would need to go to the yacht and change. Jacquelyn pulled the wrap dress from her dainty beach bag, slipped it on and tied it at the waist. Darling you must learn to be more spontaneous she said.

I agreed.

Plage de Pampelonne Wrap Dress (No. 1496). Low maintenance dress made from a silky jersey knit with a little spandex is ideal for travel. The flattering silhouette is packed with glamour, V-shaped crossover neckline, shaping princess lines and a flowing full sweep. Ties at waist. Lower calf length.

This dress belongs in your beach bag.


Keep on writing.

  1. My girlfriend and I went to Catalina Island last summer, and I noticed that all the beachwear stores she dragged me to did the same as you did here: They sold the lifestyle. I could totally imagine this as an ad or mission statement for a clothing company, good job man 🙂
