The weather is finally starting to get warmer, so of course my thoughts are turning to travel and casual summer weekends. I always think back to this interesting article in the NYT a few years ago, which mentioned the perfect packable travel dress: the Patagonia Bandha. As the article noted, the dress is “made of a moisture-wicking, wrinkle-resistant fabric originally designed for climbing tights. ‘It’s pretty much smellproof and wrinkleproof,’ Ms. Fox said. ‘You can dress it up or down.’” Well then! Now that 6pm has it in 4 colors — all marked down to $31-$39 — I may just have to take the plunge. The pictured dress, in whiskey plum, is $31.60. Patagonia Bandha Dress
