Spring Dress

Accessorize your floral dress for Spring

We’ve all seen it;  a cute flowery Spring dress worn with sneakers or bland sandals and a handbag holdover from the Winter months.  Don’t sell your lovely floral print spring dress short – accessorize with a lovely scarf, shoes, and a handbag to achieve a carefree but polished look – a bit of fun with attention to detail can make a just the right statement this time of year.

Kimono Trend for Spring

Spring is fast approaching – time to break out those flattering loose fitting kimonos

Kimonos were trending last year and look to be just as huge in 2016.  Their lovely flowing lines are a natural fit for the 70’s style invasion with flared legs and chunky heels.

Winter Layers: Slip Dress

Slip dresses are back – right out of the 90’s and showing up everywhere.

How would you wear a slip dress?  Obviously not for the work place or a trip to the mall (unless you’re Rhianna)- more suited for a nice (very nice) evening out.  Perfect for a cocktail party or dinner and a show.

 So just what is a “slip dress”?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A slip dress is a woman’s dress that closely resembles an underslip or petticoat.[1] It is traditionally cut on the bias, with spaghetti straps.[1] Slip dresses first became widely worn in the last decade of the 20th century, as part of the underwear-as-outerwear trend, when they were made from layered chiffon, polyester satins and charmeuse, and often trimmed with lace.[2] The slip dress looked like an undergarment, but was intended to be seen, and through the use of lace and sheer elements, offer glimpses of the body beneath.[3]Designers associated with slip dresses include John Galliano, whose debut design for Dior was a lace-trimmed slip dress worn by Diana, Princess of Wales in 1996;[4] Calvin Klein and Narciso Rodriguez.[1]

Fall is upon us and those sweaters and boots are taking center stage

Not just sweaters and boots but handbags are a big statement this time of year – we need a roomy bag to hold our gloves and scarves.  Autumn is also a great time of year for weddings – who could ask for a more beautiful backdrop than autumn leaves?
