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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent has come out with a number of pieces this season that highlight the upper back and front of the chest with lace.  The lace yoke: a delicate detail that adds a grand amount of drama to the garments they adorn.  The blouse would look awesome with jeans but would also pair with a maxi skirt (godet or not) for more formal occasions.  The batwing, billowy style furthers the drama (back view below).

The Lace Yoke Dress (pictured at top and below) takes a simple shape and glams it up with black lace.  This is a great holiday option that is flattering, simple, and polished.  Offered in bone or black.

Simple Shapes

Sometimes the simplest shapes and fashion ideas work best.  They provide a clean, sophisticated backdrop to embellish with statement accessories or make a minimalist statement all on their own.  Two simple shift dresses from Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent embody this clean aesthetic.  Both have long sleeves (hooray for fall!) and hit above the knee.  A gently scooped neckline adds to the simple modesty of the dress.  Fun for the holidays ahead or even work functions, these easy shapes are the ones you want to wear again and again.  The Buckeye Dress, pictured above, features a saturated green print, fully lined through the body, with slightly sheer sleeves.  The Lima Scoop Back Dress, detail picture below, is a dark dark purple velvet.  The clean profile keeps it from feeling overly stuffy and formal (though it would be a perfect companion for any holiday party).  Simple shapes make sophisticated statements, and great dresses!

Crosby bag from Twelft Street by Cynthia Vincent

Pint sized accessories are having a moment this season as both add-ons to larger carryalls and stand alone pieces.  The structured shape and small stature of the Crosby bag from Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent make it a winner for Fall 2011.  The long cross-body strap keeps the bag close at hand or literally in your hand if you choose to remove the strap and carry the bag as a clutch.  Exterior and interior slip pockets will hold all your essentials despite it’s petite profile.  A zip that extends down the side makes sure you can access everything with ease.   At a price point under $200 you’ll actually have some money left over to put in the purse too!

Fall Bootie

Posted in shoes with tags , , , , , , on August 10, 2011 by veridisclothier

The first shoes of the fall season have arrived and they may have you wishing for cooler boot-wearing weather.  Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent’s Python Pull-on Bootie is stamped black leather that has an incredibly soft finish.  Slightly slouchy, this ankle boot still retains its shape nicely.  A back buckle is the finishing detail on this great walkable heel (only 2.5″).

The other little bootie we’ve received is a flat ankle boot from J.Shoes.  A leather sole and lace-up, cuffed shape make this casual shoe both extremely wearable and stylish.  The great price-point doesn’t hurt either.  We have another little heeled shoe-boot coming from J.Shoes this month.  Stay tuned!  Both styles were ordered in limited quantities so don’t delay!

A new season, a new collection of handbags.  YES!!!  They say (some say? I say?) the best way to update your wardrobe is to put your investment dollars in your outerwear, shoes, and handbags (those three categories just happen to count as my favorite vices).   In any case, the fall crop of handbags at Veridis is stunning and just starting to arrive.

The first group of bags is from CC Skye and new to Veridis this fall.  These hang out on the pricier edge of the spectrum (retailing around $600) but the leather will have you melting.  As something you carry everyday, handbags are worth the extra money, and the cost per wear will become minimal over time.  These handbags incorporate luxe hardware, mixed skins, and impeccable design.

We’ve brought in a number of bags from Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent before but this collection is her best yet!  The leather is better, the design is better, the functionality is better.  Great everyday bags!  Expect more next month but on a more compact scale (much smaller cross-body bags).

Next week will bring a fantastic delivery from Linea Pelle.  Wallets (amazing!!!), quilted bags, bracelets, and belts; all in that incredibly supple Linea Pelle leather.  There are more deliveries scheduled for later this fall, focusing on smaller clutch and cross-body styles.

Hooray for Handbags!

The Gold Dust Woman dress from Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent is another victory of the printed silk variety.  A blurred black and royal blue print pop against bright white.  The tie waist helps accentuate the bloused top and dolman sleeve.  Side pockets at the skirt add to the functionality of this great dress.  Hitting mid-thigh, this dress can also easily be worn as a tunic.  Easy and lovely, Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent makes the most beautiful printed silks and this dress is no exception!
