Lace-Back LBD

How pretty is this J.Jill Lace-Back LBD?  From the sheer-lace arms to the pleated lace overlay covering the back, the details of this unique dress make it special and party-worthy.  Lace is prefect for those occasions where sequins and sparkle are a bit too much, yet you still want a little embellishment.  This dress hits… Read More Lace-Back LBD

Red Check

Give me all the red for the holidays!  I always love red, but this time of year it seems especially appropriate.  Maybe because we equate it with Santa’s outfit?  Who knows?  But it’s definiately the most prevalent color this time of year. Red takes on a more “everyday” look as gingham, and I love it… Read More Red Check

Velvet

I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you velvet is such a hot trend this fall.  It’s such a luxurious fabric, so soft yet so elegant, you wonder why it took so long to reclaim its status as a fashion favorite. I used to sew a lot growing up, and I remember choosing velvet… Read More Velvet

Golden Girl

With the idea of mixing styles, I wanted to do something completely different with my J.Jill sweater.  Rather than top a silky slip dress with something equally glitzy, the tweedy sweater was a great contrast in texture and pattern.  There is just a hint of golden beige in the sweater’s knit to pair with the… Read More Golden Girl
