Meet Dobbin: Dependable, Darling and Delightful!

June 1, 2012 at 8:00 am 3 comments

You know that little spring in your step you get when you put on something brand new and a complete stranger randomly complements your ensemble not long after you walk out the front door? That what happened within an hour of slipping on the Carla skirt, part of recently christened line, Dobbin. Each piece from the crisp, classic, comfortable collection has been designed to be a wardrobe staple; the go-to piece when you’re looking for something equally dependable and delightful.

The brainchild of Jessica Gold Newman and Catherine Doyle, who met when they worked together at Liz Lange Maternity, Dobbin’s dresses and separates are punctuated by vintage-inspired silhouettes and designer-level stretch European fabrics which offer a flattering fit made for bodies of all ages (and everything is under $200). CLICK HERE for the secret to the Dobbin fit. You know you’re doing something right as a designer when you can imagine Audrey Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot and Kate Middleton (and yourself!) in the same piece!

Stomping divots in Dobbin!

So on Saturday, it was off to Newport Polo donning Dobbin for the season’s opening charity match with bubbly, provisions, and most importantly, good friends—it seemed only appropriate since Dobbin is a common English nickname for a workhorse!

Dobbin is a growing line that currently sells exclusively online and offers free shipping both ways so you can try on pieces and count on worry-free returns. Oh, and it all arrives gently wrapped in light blue paper and with a personal message–love that touch!

As an EXCLUSIVE offer for Newport Stylephile readers, Dobbin is offering a 30% discount throughout the weekend with the code NEWPORT12. Check out the line here:

    Thanks for highlighting Dobbin. Love to hear about new designers, and it looks fabulous. I know they do free shipping both ways (awesome) but I’d like to see it in person. Is that possible? Do they have any trunk shows coming to Newport?

      Fingers crossed! The designers would love to and might do a show in Newport-stay tuned! I’ll be sure to follow up with any news!
