Local designer Rachel Godwin Becker just launched online shopping for Laundrea, her new collection of knit dresses that solve your "What do I wear to this out-of-state wedding/bridal shower/baby shower/graduation party/etc.?" problem. The Delaware County-based line comprises 10 machine washable, "bra-friendly" dresses that range from $98 to $198 and—brownie points—the collection is designed and manufactured in the USA.
Our pick: This pink fit-and-flare frock ($124, also available in black) is crafted from a wrinkle-resistant (read: suitcase-friendly) cotton/poly blend, which arguably makes it summer's perfect travel-ready party dress. Rather shop the collection in person? Ask for it at Media's Sorella, Wayne's Coco Blue, or Wynnewood's SewRob.
