Summer Dresses


The POCKET DRESS has become one of our best-selling styles. We do this dress in one-size -- but we size it up & we size it down. We have done this dress SMALL as an XS & big as a 3X. We have one 3X customer who swears by this dress; but it's been bought by the tiniest people in an XS & we've sold it to young & old alike....
 
It is HAMMERED SILK.
 
This SPRING, the POCKET DRESS comes in a mysterious sea-green -- ABALONE....

Our top-selling fabric for FALL is our CRUNCH -- a double-sided polyster from ITALY that reads like silk.
 
We do 5 jacket styles -- in 4 colorations....

 
GOLD A-line CRUNCH
-- flips to BROWN

 
LAVENDER A-line CRUNCH
-- flips to ELECTRIC PURPLE
 

PEWTER A-line CRUNCH

-- TURQUOISE inside
 

PEWTER CRUNCH long blazer with pockets
-- the boyfriend jacket
 

This jacketing fabric is very sophisticated & we have designed the pieces to accent the fabric -- big collars; contrasting cuffs; open in the A-line to show the reverse side -- FABULOUS!!! -- one customer was so excited in the LAVENDER/ELECTRIC PURPLE A-line coat, she screamed for joy!!!
