It's that time of year again. Leaves are falling from the trees, you're putting on your sweaters and snuggling up with mugs of hot tea, fall is in the air. This also means holiday parties are just around the corner. It has become quite common for people looking for holiday attire to make fast fashion purchases, that will be worn once then discarded. I want to offer you an alternative with pieces that are more versatile and of higher quality. Dresses that can go from being accessorized with boots and coats to sandals and beach blankets. classic pieces with timeless style. There is even an option for expectant mamas that is designed to be worn well after pregnancy. I love the way a new dress can make you feel, even more so I love the way a favorite dress makes you feel. Like a special boost of confidence each time you put it on. So this year for your holiday gatherings why not look for a new favorite, instead of one to wear just once. We have hand picked a few from our directory of American made designers that just might be that new special piece for you. Cheers to the season.
While the Sailor pants from this LA based designer have stolen our hearts many times over, they are far from the only swoon worthy pieces. The Stack Dress is an ankle length tube dress cut from Japanese rayon. We love the turtleneck and the subtle but sexy back detailing.
