Red, White And Blue: A Surprise

I love surprises; who doesn’t.

When it comes to dressing up – or dressing down – the element of surprise rarely exists. When you have been parting the rails for as many years as me the finding-something-fun moments are rare.

Great style for me is always about the mix; the way all the pieces are put together. It’s not about the amount of investment but where that commitment is made. It is neither good-looking nor necessary to spend wildly on every item in your wardrobe. The moderate and “clever” finds can elevate the expensive to another level. I think it’s called the individual or our personal signature. That’s the mode of dressing I prefer whether it’s the graphic tee under a perfectly tailored pinstripe or a band of beaded necklaces with a gloriously floating caftan. My current crush.

These dresses are a moderate price, look super cute worn with our best paraphernalia and a lick of venetian red lipstick.

Thinking of sparkling seas, white sandy beaches, and a swaying palm leaf?

Always. xv
