A classic start to any year, our most divine of dresses kicked things off with a splash of high-contrast florals!

Refreshingly vibrant, the timeless appeal of the Green Beverly Knit Dress is perfectly complemented with the Baby Green Sparkle Kiss Lock Coin Purse and the Black and Baby Green Sparkle Mini Atomic Tote. Finish your ensemble with the Yellow Rose Stud Earrings.

It’s the holidays, darlings! We’ve filled up on eggnog and are feeling extra feisty this time of year. Throw that last batch of cookies in the oven, slide into your sensible day heels and come walk with us:
Our dear Kelly arrived in early in the week to present her homage to red lace and Mae West! The old gal was sporting some serious makeup, while the dress made her look like she belonged under a tree this season. Thoughts? Hit it, gals!
What is it about this time of year? There seems to be electricity in the air with the hustle and bustle of shopping, attending sparkling holiday soirees, and of course our favorite celebration, New Year’s Eve. We love the sound of clinking champagne glasses, the midnight kiss, and the fabulous glittering cocktail dresses. To help you ring in the new year in style, we pulled together a collection of some of our most divine retro party-ready cocktail dresses.
Welcome back, darlings! Take your coat off, put your purse down and grab a cocktail! We have a lot of ground to cover and even more eggnog to sip. Sit down and let’s get started, shall we?
