So Genteel


Prim and proper. This strapless dress is perfect for a Sunday afternoon soirée. The dress says elegance with its genteel floral print set to a soft green backdrop. For chillier days, and an alternative look, it is paired with a mini cardigan that flirts with its colors. Tan d’Orsay pumps, a pink clutch, and white pearls add the final touches.

Warm Breezes

Hey now. I’m ready for the fall just like everybody else. But, dresses like this one make me long for warm breezes. The cotton dress has a structured empire and adjustable straps providing a snug upper fit. Its appeal, however, comes from the perfect union of modern print and vibrant color.
I wore this to an engagement party.

A Love Affair

Ah love. An afternoon wedding gave me the perfect opportunity to unveil this Max Studio cotton voile sundress. Its cream base with a striking yet very delicate floral print -a harmonious mix of brown and green- gave the dress sophisticated appeal. The obi (sash) at the empire waist yielding the fit-and-flare shape rendered the dress perfect for the affair. 4 inch Tahari Mecca d’Orsay pumps and 14K freshwater cultured pearls finished the look.
