Memorial Day marked the unofficial start to summer. No better time to get bright and bold. Enjoy short sleeves, lighter fabrics like linen and gauze, and bask in the warm glow of your freedom and the sun’s encouraging gaze.

fall 2014 062We’ve made it to December which means there’s a lot to celebrate. Finish the year off looking your best with some fun frocks worthy a holiday cocktail party and a new year’s bash.

I love the elegant, casual nature of Trina Turk’s Kimberlina jumpsuit. As comfortable as pajamas in a soft modal jersey with a dressy lace back.

Greylin’s Karina Beaded Top has so much detail for the price. Pair with your favorite pencil or mini skirt or even trousers to carry it from the office.

The V-back Gore Dress from Susana Monaco is flirty and fun. The flattering fit shows just the right amount of skin with a bra-friendly v shape that dips down the back.

Embrace the holiday season and enjoy all the fun fashion at hand!

The holiday season is upon us with parties galore.  Need a new dress for the festivities?  Want to wow as the ball drops New Years Eve?   Your holiday dress guide is here.

Silver Shirred Side Dress from Dolan

This cozy ribbed jersey dress from Dolan amps up the appeal with a serious body-c0n profile (shirring along the hips allows you to arrange the drape according to your own personal assets) and a metallic silver sheen.  Wear as a mini dress to ring in the new year or as a tunic over leggings.

Lace Yoke Dress from Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent

The Lace Yoke Dress from Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent is elegant and sophisticated with a simple feminine shape and a delicate lace finish across the upper chest and back.  You can’t go wrong with a LBD and this one takes that idea to the next level.

Lima Scoop Neck Dress from Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent

This dark purple velvet dress is begging for a party.  Hitting mid-thigh, the Lima Scoop Back Dress from Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent reveals just enough.   The long, slightly bloused sleeves add drama to a beautiful holiday piece.

Tank Drape Dress from Susana Monaco

Above is the back view of the stunning Tank Drape Dress from Susana Monaco.  Regal purple reigns with this body con dress; arrange the ruching along the sides to help hide trouble spots.  The open back really “wows” while the strap across the upper back  is both visually appealing and keeps your shoulder straps from falling over.  Ingenious, lovely, and machine washable!

Wide Sleeve Sequin Dress from Dolan

These aren’t Charlie Brown’s zig-zags.  A sheer sequined silk overlay of this insouciant dress from Dolan just grazes the hips.  The more form fitting tank dress underneath lies close to the body and hangs out below the hem of the v-neck dress.  After party-dress time, belt the sequined layer over a tank and skinny jeans to re-appropriate it as a tunic top.

And if you’re lucky and your parties make way for winter travel to warm locales, consider one of the breezy sheer pieces from Clover Canyon by Rozae Nichols.  Perfect over a slip dress or better yet a swimsuit, cover up with a breezy and bright caftan-like dress that will take you from the pool/beach, to the cafe/bar/nightclub.

One of the best ways to infuse excitement into a stale wardrobe is to add some color, preferably lots of it.  This fall is a great opportunity to indulge as lush saturated hues, color-blocking, and head-to-toe color combinations have become more mainstream.  Let Susana Monaco’s dresses get you started on your color journey.   Deep tourmaline green and boysenberry purple are a great jumping off point; just add contrasting or on-tone accessories to really make a statement.  As always, Susana Monaco’s supplex collection is machine washable/dryable making these color-drenched dresses easy to wear and care for (great travel companions too).

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!!
