Ready for the Beach

A beautiful floral maxi dress is the perfect thing to pack for a beach vacation.  After a day or more in the sun, it’s nice to have the option to cover up a little in something not-so clingy.  The fishtail hem on this maxi by Angie is subtle, but will be so pretty when it brushes the sand as you walk down the beach.  Layer on a few vintage-inspired long necklaces, a stunning cocktail ring and you’ll be ready for a fun night out.  Ok, now I really need to go to the beach!

the wrap skirt

Oh how we love a wrap skirt! One size fits all, wear it high up on your waist or lower on your hips; it makes a fantastic baithing suit cover up and somehow it’s still totally dressy… Not many pieces of clothing can go that distance and look good doing it. Try one on for yourself!

How to wear a crop top – pt. 2

So, part two of this challenging trend, demystified. The basis of this look again revolves around a high-waisted skirt. But this time we’re pairing it with a slim little tube top. This combo shows only two inches of the upper part of your waist and so (to not feel too bare) make sure to cover up with a short cardigan of some sort. Also, be sure that your lower half is more covered than not. The challenge is to look hip and cool and not… ahem… easy and naked.

If it all seems too confusing or downright impossible swing by the shop and have our stylish shop girls give you hand in making a version of this trend work for you!
