A dress for the country girl at heart.

This dress by Minuet is almost too much… almost.  With that darling cream lace bodice, ruffled chiffon skirt and billowy sheer sleeves, it’s a lovely balance of clean lines with all the fixin’s.  And she twirls like a dream!

Go Glam, Golden Girl

With Valentine’s day around the corner, the perfect opportunity to glam up is on the horizon.  This stunning dress by Minuet might be just the dress for you.  A gorgeous gold sweater shawl will keep your shoulders warm during dinner, then as the night heats up, peel it off and let this dress do the talking!

What Inspires Us…

Letitia –Mad Men!  Season 3 premier runs tonight on AMC at 10 pm and I will be there on the edge of my couch with a dog on each side taking in one of my favorite shows on tv, reveling in the fantastic costumes and set design as well as the torturous drama of the world of New York Ad men.  We’ve got a couple of Tulle coats in right now that I can just see Peggy wearing to the office.

Angi –  Recently I have been thinking alot about my great granny Nola.  I have one of her nicer dresses hanging in my closet and I dream of having at least ten cut in the same or similar style.  Though my dress does not look like the pattern below I know granny had a few in this style.
