Throwback Thursdays: 1920's Style

The fashion back then was nothing less than glamorous. Women wore their full regalia, shiny headdresses, fancy high heels, and head-turning dresses. That level of style is what influences a lot of our collection, which is reminiscent of this fashionable era! This holiday season is the perfect time to visit our atelier at 309 N. Kings Rd to see our entire collection of exclusive Ready To Wear and one-of-a-kind gowns. Custom design is also available.

What To Wear For Thanksgiving Dinner?

This event is always a tough one. You want to be dressy but not too dressy, as you'll be spending most of your time just relaxing on the couch with your friends and family. You want to be comfortable because you'll be eating quite a feast with the spread of turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and pumpkin pie. But, you also don't want to look too casual because it is still a formal family dinner. So what do you wear? Stylist and blogger, Elizabeth Keene, of A Keene Sense of Style, chose to pair our comfortable yet figure-flattering navy blue jersey dress with our taupe cascading sweater. She looks absolutely stunning! What an effortlessly casually chic outfit!
