Here’s another dress in my line of shift dresses. I’m hoping that you have seen the previous outfit posts along this line.
What makes this shift dress so special to me is that it is a racerback. Racerbacks -whether in swimsuit or tank tops – are a sleeveless garment which tends to have a narrower line of fabric running down in between the shoulder blades.

Laura Narayansingh is an architect and Monday Wear designer who has not disappointed since her first Monday Wear collection debut.

You are an architect, what was the reason behind your career choice?
I’d always associated architecture with art. I’d been inclined to anything that had to do with a pen and paper for as long as I can remember. My parents both came from humble means and grew to become highly respected liberal professionals. So, my sister and I were always expected to do the same. To my father in particular, my attraction to art meant that I would have to become an architect.
I’d always answer the question “what would you like to be when you grow up” with “an architect”.
I have been super taken with high-waist, flow-y maxi skirts lately. You’ll probably be seeing a number of outfit posts with me in one. I like that they are feminine, offer coverage, and can create great peek-a-boo leg effects when slits are involved.
