We’ve already covered in past posts our love affair with wearing white for summer. And this dress from English Factory is no exception. Today we really encourage you to take staples and trends that you know you love and suit you, and push the envelope just that much further. If you know you love a tunic shape on your body, pick up a great tunic with a cold-shoulder detail. Or perhaps you live in button-downs, find one with some leather paneling in the back or some lace elements. That’s what we love about English Factory – they take an approachable piece like a white dress and add elements to create an edgy, daring look. The tiered ruffles on the bottom on this dress immediately transport you to somewhere dreamy! And the tiny floral details are a nice take on a pattern that can sometimes be too busy or over-saturating. So, before summer ends, find your staple piece and then step it up a notch into somewhere a little more daring and unexpected. (Maybe that means less is more!) Whatever rings true for YOU. It’s a little scary at first, but the Minxies have got your back!

Have A Seat

If you’ve been with us awhile, then the genius that is Johnny Was designs will come as no surprise to you. Embroidery, being one of the biggest trends this season, is one of the most defining features of a Johnny Was garment and they have been in the game for awhile! These special pieces speak to that vintage, well-loved feel with the detail and dedication of a hand-stitched embroidery, bringing life and story to each piece. We strongly suggest investing in Johnny Was that speaks to you – its true wearable art and translates to any event. Understated and yet eye-catching, this tunic dress from Johnny Was needs no introduction and is not quickly forgotten.

It’s starting to really feel like spring (at least in our part of the country) and we can finally celebrate by wearing pretty dresses with bare legs and a fresh perspective. The Paola Embroidered dress by Ark & Co. will stylishly take you to many spring parties. It’s even fab with a pair of trusty gladiator sandals to wear to brunch with your pals or a BBQ. Lenora Dame’s Parisienne necklace works perfectly with the dress and will be an heirloom for future generations. Happy Spring!

Coral Embroidered Dress from Plenty by Tracy Reese

Details, details, details!  From the contrasting black stitching, to the decorative embroidery down the front and on the cap-sleeves, to the pin-tucked feminine bodice, this fresh coral dress from Plenty by Tracy Reese has a simple silhouette, but is loaded with little details that make it much more special.  Our newest booties from Chelsea Crew and enameled white hoops by Ashley Buchanan compliment the dress while making the whole look hip and modern.

We love this transitional get-up. A floral summer dress tempered with a bejeweled vest. All pieces to mix and match; you know how we love to do that! Don’t forget about these show-stopping shoes.
