Cameo Girl

We love Butter by Nadia for their signature wrap dresses but her straight-ahead pieces are just as fantastic. Even if this dress doesn’t turn into a million different dresses, it does one thing very well: slays when you walk into a room. Super-high quality jersey, super-flattering scoop neck, and a super-swirlable skirt. What more can you ask for?

Orange crush in an apple orchard.

From the gorgeous print, to the braided collar with gold detailing, to its perfectly prim sleeves, we’re crushing on this silk dress from Dolce Vita hard!  No necklace necessary means you can really show off your new Marcia Moran cocktail ring and ISWAS+WILLBE’s cut brass earrings. This ensemble is ready for you, fancy lady!

Textured Treasures

Pick up this fishtail-hemmed tunic by Everly before it swims out of the door with someone else!  We love its long sleeves, dainty print and sweet princess pleats at the shoulder seams.  Pair her with some lace tights, modern wedges and divine studs by local jewelry line, Mani Designs.  We’ve cinched it at the waist with a sash from another Minx dress (but a wide grosgrain ribbon would do the trick) for shorter gals like Breigh here, but tall girls will enjoy wearing this piece with leggings or skinny jeans as a cool tunic.

Special Features

Pick up something pretty and fresh for spring!  We suggest this floaty, fishtail-hemmed beauty by Peppermint.  The long, sheer princess sleeves, lovely periwinkle blue, white and orange print and flirty low back make this inexpensive dress a very special find.  Chelsea Crew’s orange suede heels, Seven Swans’ vintage chain necklace and Monserat de Lucca’s brass feather ring put the finishing touches on this romantic ensemble.

Go-to Cozy-Up Piece

Repeat’s sweater jacket is perfect for the gal who wants to round out her knit-wear selections now, but might be worried about making such a purchase so late in the season.  A nice off-white sweater like this one will be your go-to cozy-up piece all spring long.

Imagine the salty sea air kissing your cheeks and this fab sweater snuggled around your shoulders during your first beach-trip of the year.  This orange dress can come too!  Sure it’s long-sleeved, but the fabric is the perfect weight for an early spring beach adventure.

Adrift Dress

This scalloped off-white frock is such a dream!  We love its long sleeves, sweet collar, and the keyhole back… seriously!  Neutral pallets are lots of fun, just be sure to add a little color in there somewhere.  We’ve added a pretty green clutch, but you could wear some glittery heels or bold cocktail ring for the same effect.

just to watch the snow fall

This dress feels a bit like a Victorian daydream. It makes you want to slip it on just to watch the snow fall while you read or sketch by the window. Paired with a great pair of boots and cinched with a lovely wide sash, you have a lovely trio of pieces to spend a sweet winter afternoon or evening in.

Oh how we love Butter By Nadia! And her new fall convertible dress is no exception. With a dozen or more ways to tie this exquisite jersey number, you will get a wardrobe full of dress-me-up, dress-me-down dresses for one pretty price.  So to recap: a dozen dresses for the price of one and something you can wear all day AND all night? Versatility, comfort and fine fashion all in one… that’s just the way we like it.
