Easy for Easter

Easy for Easter

Similar to wedding season, Easter is a great excuse to buy a new dress (or separates),  especially if you can find a piece or two that will take you through summer and all the events that come with it.

We like to keep our Easter outfits light, bright and floral, with a little lace thrown in - which keeps things festive and fun - and of course, on trend for the season. 

Graphic prints, floral or otherwise, are all over dresses right now, making it easy to find an Easter appropriate outfit.  It also wouldn't be a spring 2016 dress if there wasn't a white option, be it crochet, eyelet or linen, you'll find the perfect white dress for you.

From L to R: Red Valentino cotton eyelet lace dress, Paul Smith cotton dress, Derek Lam 10 Crosby cotton top with lace trim, Theory "Raoka" floral print pants, M Missoni dress, L'Agence "T Lee" silk blouse and "Mackenzie" skirt.

Whether you're doing a low key brunch with friends, attending mass, a party at the club or sticking around the house for a drizzly egg hunt with the kids, we've got a look for you.

Cocktail Hour

Cocktail Hour

The holiday season is in full swing - first came the coordinated chaos of Thanksgiving then the insanity of Black Friday - now it's time to get serious about your upcoming parties and figure out what you're going to wear!

A festive yet functional cocktail dress is a great solution for the endless events that come with the holidays.  Go bold with pattern and texture while keeping the silhouette easy and versatile,  you want to be able to wear this dress multiple times this month without tiring of it. Can the dress take you from day to evening? Awesome. Will it hide a spill of Champagne?  Even better. 

For less formal events, trade in your fur topper, bare leg and delicate pump for a leather jacket, opaque tights and a leather bootie.  

From L to R: Nicole Miller "Mercedes" dress, Akris Punto knit herringbone dress, Red Valentino floral chiffon dress, M Missoni jewel print dress, Red Valentino cherry print jacquard dress.

Wishing you a yours a fantastic, festive and fun holiday season!
