A Royal Flush

Strolling around the Botanical Gardens, we arrived at this bridge and knew it would be the perfect spot for this look. The pinkish-purple flowers framing Carrie in the drawstring top from Current Air is quite the match! Our favorite part is the sage green piped detail around the collar and shoulders on this top. Its subtle but adds so much! This look feels very sophisticated and the detail really helps it stand out and elevate it. These tiered pants pair nicely with the top, adding shape and opulence to this overall effortless look. We see this look as a happy balance between casual and a special occasion look. If dressing for an event tends to bring anxiety, this look is a great way to remain comfortable and casual while still having a touch of formal.

Take a Bow

The floral shift dress is (or definitely should be!) a staple in every gals’ wardrobe. Its flirty and girly while still being adaptable to everyone’s personal style and flair. They can be dressed up with heels, or down with a denim jacket and sneakers. Its no secret the millions of wardrobe variations you can create with a floral dress and a little creativity. Feeling tired of your classic combos? Try different textures in the same color family. We love these velvet belt that can be tied in many different ways to suit the occasion. Adding some statement shoes, with some unexpected texture like faux fur or metal hardware, adds interest and changes up the entire vibe without my effort. Accessorizing is key for putting a new spin on your most beloved go-to pieces.

Darling, So It Goes

Hi Minxies! We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend! We certainly did. We are soaking up every ounce of sunshine we can get and experimenting with different looks as we transition from colder months to a much warmer season. We love pairing this cropped leather jacket from Neuw with this breezy, easy-going floral shift dress. Having transitional looks and layering options are important while the weather is still unpredictable. And just because it’s Spring, it doesn’t mean that black and dark tones of our wardrobe are banished to the back of our closets to wait until October! Black is still an incredibly wearable color even in the hotter seasons. Bright florals, neons, and patterns stand out strikingly against a black fabrics. At Minx we hope to prepare you for even the most drastic weather shifts, with comfort and style being at the top of the priority list. XOXO!

Susana Monaco, The Perfect Travel Companion

Travel Clothes

This is the time of year that mailboxes fill up with magazines and catalogs championing resort wear and bathing suits. Regardless of if you are the type who actually goes to a resort or gets the chance to wear a bathing suit before that special groundhog fails to see his shadow, it does give us all pause to think about the possibility. The possibility of movement, of new experiences and places, and of what we will be wearing in these new situations!

Wardrobe Essentials

Every time a Minx packs for a vacation, even a quick weekend get away, she is utilizing the basic skills of building a wardrobe. A micro wardrobe, if you will, but a wardrobe nonetheless. If one looks at wardrobe building through the small and accessible lens of vacation packing it becomes clear that the key factor in choosing an item is its versatility.

Sendra Boots

The Susana Monaco Dress

Our number one item of essential clothing is the short dress. Here we chose a Susana Monaco dress. We don’t often like to pick favorites, but this high quality frock has timeless style, doesn’t fade, pill, stretch, wrinkle or stain! It is an amazing addition to any travel wardrobe.

The Short Dress as one of the Classic Wardrobe Essentials

Why we love a simple short dress: Firstly the basic proportion creates a naturally feminine and flattering look for multiple body shapes. Secondly, a simple short dress has an effortless wearable quality that makes it the perfect foundation item of clothing on which to build a number of different outfits and looks. When we are tasked to create a travel wardrobe that fits within the confines of a suitcase we want articles of clothing that can mix and match. We need them to fit into a number of different locations and situations along with us.

Three Ways to Style a Susana Monaco Dress

 

Here we have our Susana Monaco dress paired with three different tops, three different pairs of shoes and three different statement jewelry pieces. Each pairing creating a very different feel ranging from professional, to casual, to evening. Don’t forget that the dress worn alone is a fourth look! The goal of building a wardrobe is to create a collection of clothing that fits your body and your life.

Susana Monaco Dress Don’t feel hampered by the options that we have put before you: have fun building your own wardrobe with your own unique style! Other options abound: You could incorporate belts worn at the true waist or forgo the pullover look and pair your short dress with a cardigan or a smart jacket during the colder months. Also note that we have our looks styled with bare legs, but a short dress loves a good pair of tights or leggings, especially before it warms up a bit. It is truly a must have year round wardrobe essential! Bon Voyage Minxes!
