Wearing dresses in the Winter is great! But not always easy or warm.

A few easy ideas or accessories will make your wardrobe a little more manageable.

Take this summer dress, for example.

Option A:  Add a black turtleneck underneath.  Preferably something not too thick so that you don’t notice where the waistband ends.  This is a more sporty, casual look.

I sell turtle necks in black, red and blue…all on the 50% off rack right now.

Option B: Add a bolero.  I make 4 different models in all possible colors.  This one ties in the front and has full length sleeves.  This is a more elegant, feminine option.

Choose a dress with a lining, or buy a slip.  In the winter we wear thick tights, or leggings under everything.  Dresses often cling to your layers and don’t fall and drape properly, not to mention the static created by some carpets!

The Gabriella dress (below) has a built in lining.

More long sleeve dresses (3/4 sleeve actually).  Some women prefer 3/4 sleeve, but I think the problem often stems from not having sleeves hemmed to the exact right length.  At the boutique we offer an alteration service on anything purchased here, and I encourage you to always make things fit just right even if it means taking off only an inch.

  1. An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a coworker
    who has been conducting a little homework on this.

    And he in fact ordered me dinner simply because I found it for him…
    lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thanks for the meal!!

    But yeah, thanks for spending some time to discuss this subject here on your web site.

  2. Hello there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but
    after checking through some of the post I realized it’s new to
    me. Nonetheless, I’m definitely delighted I found it and I’ll be
    bookmarking and checking back frequently!

  3. Heya this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG
    editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get
    guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    It’s perfect time to make some plans for the future and it’s time to be happy.
    I’ve read this post and if I could I desire to
    suggest you some interesting things or suggestions. Perhaps you can write next articles referring to
    this article. I wish to read even more things about it!

  5. Greetings, I believe your website could be having internet browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your web site in Safari, it looks
    fine but when opening in I.E., it’s got some overlapping issues.

    I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!

    Besides that, wonderful blog!
