  • Easy Dresses for Every Season

    Summer has just begun, but we must look forward to the upcoming seasons in order to make our wardrobe work overtime. In your closet, you may already have some easy dresses for every season that you've overlooked. Like that favorite summer dress you just can’t live without? If you could wear it all year long you would, right? With a bit of creative styling, you can! Layer and combine texture and pattern in an artful way to extend the life of your most cherished pieces.

    The key to carrying over lightweight dresses into the colder months is to keep things simple. This can also work with heavily beaded dresses or cut-out dresses. To have the greatest success, a short body hugging dress works best as a base for your cooler weather accessories. Keep casual cocktail dresses, either in prints or in solid colors, in mind for this application. Easy dresses cut in simple forms and light fabrics make versatile additions to your closet.

    Mixing it Up With Some Hot New Styles

    Easy Dresses - Sherri Hill 50146 Strapless Floral Black and Pink Print Cocktail Style Sherri Hill 50146 Strapless Floral Print Cocktail Dress

    Sherri Hill 50146 is a great example to illustrate how to pull this off. A bold graphic floral print doesn’t have to be confined to summer or spring. Since this dress has a strapless sweetheart bodice, it would go well with a solid color cardigan, solid knit stockings, and a pair of biker boots that hit just below the calf. This gives off a look that says sweet but edgy. Playing with contrasting textures is a great way to emphasize the best of each piece. The satin-like finish on the dress against a knit fabric can look sumptuous and rich. Depending on the color cardigan you chose, you can pop one color out of the floral pattern. A pale pink or a bold fuchsia makes for an interesting statement. Putting leather boots with this look makes it feel like fall, but keep them simple. The main focus is the pattern design on the dress. Neutral earth tones go well with this look. Deep blues or slate grays are colors that could pair well with this cocktail dress. Continue reading

  • Winona Forever: A Fashion Flashback To The Style Icon

    Ninety's fashion has made a huge comeback this year, seeing celebs like Kendall and Kylie Jenner and Gigi Hadid rocking those ever famous 90s style chokers and goth inspired looks. We certainly can't complain, especially since the 1990s seem to be making a comeback in a huge way well beyond fashion. Just yesterday, sequels to 1990s popular movies The Blair Witch Project and Trainspotting were announced, and one of our all-time favorite actresses who we've been waiting patiently to take over the spotlight once again has done just that: Winona Ryder! The popular 1990s actress who was famous for Tim Burton movies like Edward Scissorhands and Beetlejuice, as well as Girl, Interrupted, is finally back in the limelight in a big way in Netflix's newest sci-fi series Stranger Things.

    With the comeback of both Winona and 90s fashion, we wanted to give a fashion flashback to some of the formal outfits that made Winona that 1990s fashion icon she's become known for. After all, as Vice noted in their article "The Timeless Appeal of Winona Ryder, Hollywood's Eternal Outsider," Winona was "the cult face of the 90s." See four of our favorite outfits below, and of course how you can take a cue from them for a perfect fall Homecoming look.

This beautiful one of a kind evening gown features an enchanting beaded illusion cap sleeve and a sweetheart neckline. The bodice has an elegant floral bead design, a thick solid belt with a sparkly jeweled accent and a long flowy tulle skirt. We loved the chandelier style earrings that she wore, they complimented the dress perfectly.

  • I'm Not Emo Anymore I'm Grunge

    Artfully disheveled looks are making a comeback, reminiscent of the grunge trend of the 1990s. Both men and women find that grunge is a fun trend that is easy to wear.
