  • UV Style Icons: Lena Horne

    Actress, singer, civil rights activist, and glamorous style icon Lena Horne began her singing career at the early age of 16. She began performing at the famous Cotton Club in Harlem. After a long run singing at the Savoy-Plaza Hotel night club, in 1943, she signed a contract with MGM and became the highest paid African-American performer of her time.

    Lena performed in several hit films like Stormy Weather and Cabin in the Sky, but because she refused to play roles in which African-Americans were stereotyped, her film career stagnated. She became active in the civil rights movement and performed at rallies around the US on behalf of NAACP and participated in the 1963 march on Washington. Lena continued to perform and record music until her death in 2010.

  • OOTD: Strongman Swing Dress

    Theres something magical about the circus with the amazing acts, exotic animals, and delicious sweet scents of cotton candy and caramel corn. The instant we saw the Blue and Black Stongman Swing Dress we were head over heels in love. We adore statement prints and this little showstopper of a frock is adorned with a festive vintage-inspired circus print that we just couldn't pass up.

Finish the ensemble by adding a touch of volume to the dress with the Black Tea Length Petticoat Crinoline.

    For more delightful frocks with pretty prints, shimmy on over to our pin up dress section and grab yourself something fabulous.

    There's no denying how much we adore The Great Gatsby. What's not to love? Fabulous parties, beautiful dresses, and of course Leonardo DiCaprio. Lucky for us,  prom this season, we were inspired to capture the glitz and glamour of Gatsby and the 1920s with some of our favorite flapper dresses and art deco-inspired accessories. Are you ready to party like Gatsby this prom?
