In March 2015, I officially launched Style Charade. Over time, the blog gained steam, and I was thankful brands started to reach out. One of the first to do so? Donna Morgan. In fact, they gifted me this stunning floral off the shoulder maxi dress. Years later, I still have it in my closet.

Truthfully, it was love at first site. Listen, I adore dresses. However, it’s hard for me to find dress styles that really “wow” me. However, Donna Morgan and this style knocked me off my feet.

Between the color combination, floral print, stretchy waist and top, this floral off the shoulder maxi dress is just the perfect mix of everything that I love. Frankly, Donna Morgan (as a brand) doesn’t get enough attention. Lately, I struggle to find pieces from their line anywhere. Plus, I no longer hear from their team, which makes me sad.

Years ago, I remember staying in close contact with Donna’s PR team. Over time, I started shopping the line at Nordstrom. Sadly, the buyers pulled the line from the website and stores. To this day, I struggle with that decision.

Yes, Donna Morgan has been a big part of the fashion narrative of Style Charade. But to be honest? They were also responsible for some of my favorite fashion shoots of all time.

For instance, this floral dress? Still own it. Purple lace midi? Divine! This tulle top dress. Same. Looking back at these photos, my heart actually hurts. Over time, fashion brands come and go.

Some retain popularity, others start to go to the background. Overall, Donna Morgan deserves the light. Peruse their dresses on Nordstrom Rack, and I guarantee you’ll find a style you love.

Anyway, this maxi continues to be one of my favorite dresses of all time. It’s perfect for weddings, special occasions, or just going out to drinks with friends. Overall, it fits true to size. Plus, I love the length! I can wear heels and it doesn’t scrap the floor when I walk. So good!

In closing, I tried to find a similar style to this piece, but I couldn’t find one. Overall, I hope to see Donna Morgan make a comeback. From this navy floral frock to pastel lace dress, and this yellow and pink option, I can honestly say Donna Morgan has designed some of my favorite pieces of all time.

In Closing

I miss this brand. However, I’m thankful for the beautiful fashion moments they gave me so early on in the blog’s history. Rest assured, I’ll be cheering them on for a comeback. Until then, keep an eye out for their styles. Frankly, I’m confident you’ll love them as much as I do.
