Knock ‘em Dead Smart Options

For those of you looking to make an entrance this year, here are our top picks to really turn heads. The perfect blend of lace and crinkle chiffon, the Blanche is the definitive choice for girlie chic. A floral lace insert yolk provides the precise textured contrast detail to gorgeous layers of flowing chiffon. Sweet and exquisitely feminine this luscious dress can be worn loose or belted for a more structured look.

If you’re feeling brave enough to tackle the full lace effect, opt for the Bronte. Delicate French scallop lace gives this dress the edge in sexy and sumptuous pieces. For a faultless finish, layer over the Billie slip in nude and be prepared to wow!

For those of you that love the idea of lace but find the Bronte a tad too extreme, the Bobby shirtdress represents the perfect balance of feminine chic and masculine construction. Black silk collar, trims and button stand combine with a beautiful grosgrain belt to create a silhouette that is bold and truly distinct. Sold with the Billie slip in black, it makes a poignant and sophisticated impression that is sure to get people talking.
