Well the pre-fall merchandise has started to arrive and of course the pieces that immediately start to stand out are the amazing dresses!  Susana Monaco and Trina Turk have perfected the work/party hybrid and many of these fall into that category.  Throw a jacket or cardigan over a simple frock to dress it down and make it work for the everyday.

On the more party-dress side of the equation are two that are sure to steal the show.  First, Trina Turk’s Kitty Hawk dress in silk has an amazing feminine profile in a really unique star print.  Fully lined, this beauty knows the value of strategic ruching, highlighting the bodice and waist.

Susana Monaco’s version of the party dress comes in a sophisticated midnight blue and features an x-back with gathers at the  neckline and hips.  It reveals, but not too much; the result is that effortless sexiness that all women ache to achieve.

Dresses seem to inspire the most in women.  Perhaps it’s the Cinderella in all of us, the ability to be transformed, or put on a different persona.  Perhaps it’s just that pretty dresses become even more pretty once they come alive on a person.  Either way, dresses inspire.  There are many more dresses coming to Veridis this summer/fall and I encourage all women to find a way to wear more dresses as a part of their everyday lives; they’re not just for special occasions.  We have this whole arsenal of clothing at our disposal that men don’t have.  Claiming pants as our own 100 years ago was liberating; reclaiming dresses as a part of our active Northwest lifestyles should be just as invigorating.  Here’s to the dress!!
