Look What Blue Into Town

6 Apr

Spring is here! And with the blue birds singing and the honey bees buzzing, life is blooming everywhere! Our friend, Laura, came into the studio recently and brought with her a new little bundle of joy; special delivery from the stork! With her & Sailor Mae’s beautiful blue eyes, we couldn’t resist putting her in some of our newest & bluest hues!

Our Chrissy is a fantastic choice for the busy missy (or mum!) because of its versatile look. With all the fixins’ of a classic Cherry Velvet dress (our famous pockets & full skirt, for example), The Chrissy’s mock wrap bodice is universally flattering and the V-neckline (with just a little peek of décolletage) is a happy medium between business sass & casual class.

For this Spring, we released Chrissy in 2 lovely blue-based prints, Navy Waves and Blue Roses.

Express your artistic side with our gorgeous Navy Waves Print, featuring a delicate pattern of light blue waves against a sea of Navy. It’s very reminiscent of Traditional Japanese Wave art.

Or freshen up your closet with a bouquet of delicate roses, against a picturesque blue sky. Such a lovely dress for a garden party!

With the approaching heat, we wanted to crank it up even more with our Robin in Blue Net. The straps are light but wide enough to cover those pesky bra straps. Coupled with the plunging neckline (and gathered front band), your decollete becomes the center of a darling bow. <3

Sun rays won’t be the only thing you’ll be catching, in this darling fishnet print! It’s the perfect sundress!

And as always, our dresses have accompanying crinolines! We suggest our Knee-length crinoline or our new deluxe Vintage Chiffon Crinoline (featuring 100 yards of ruched ruffle!) in Blueberry Ice Cream.

It’s certainly hard to feel blue, when we’re surrounded by such lovely dresses!
We hope the puns didn’t make you blue in the face, either! 😉

The Angelina Dress Blog

 Inspired by the sultry, Legs-For-Days actress, Angelina Jolie, The Angelina is designed with the average to taller frame in mind. Check out these  new edgy prints!

Angelina Dear Butterfly

Featuring a twisted racer back and more natural waistline, this dress is ideal for those looking to flatter their average length or longer torso and / or taller stature. Many of our taller models have given us great feedback on the fit of this style. (Our model, Jennifer in Navy Ladybugs is 6 feet tall)

Angelina Dress Back

For the Spring, we’re bringing The Angelina back and we wanted to highlight 4 of our freshest new prints:

Angelina Dresses LineUp

Just like her namesake, this season’s Angelina can be a little bit country and a little bit rock ‘n roll! Looking for something that evokes the rustic beauty of Spring? See it flourish on our new “Dear Butterfly” print. The sophisticated Stag sketches are offset by a lovely fluttering of pastel butterflies in blue, orange, pink and yellow.

We recommend our Blueberry Ice Cream Chiffon Crinoline or Knee-Length Marshmallow Crinoline to match the Dear Butterfly print. We don’t suggest a brighter coloured crinoline, as they may show under the white fabric.

Or shake things up with our most edgy pattern yet. Tune into your inner Axl with this heavy metal print, aptly named “Skulls ‘n Roses“. The blue & violet roses add a touch of elegance against this overall bold look.

We recommend our Vintage Chiffon Blue Rasberry Crinoline for the Skulls ‘n Roses print.

Need some luck? Find it in the optical illusion of our Mint Eden Angelina. Depending on your view, amidst this luxuriously intricate pattern you’ll find an exotic bird. Or by the fortune of Ganesh, you’ll find the head of this Indian Deity hidden like a charm. So unique!

We recommend our Knee-Length Mint Crinoline for The Mint Eden print.

Last but certainly not least, step out like a lady in this cute as a bug print.  Featuring adorably retro ladybugs in a lovely mid-blue hue on a classic navy background. Finish it with the Blueberry Ice Cream Crinoline!

Whether you pair them with a crinoline or wear them on their own, they are definitely a sight to behold.
We hope you’re as excited about them as we are!
