Friday Frocks: Frocks for Flirts

fall sweater dresses

Date or no date this Valentine’s Day, there’s no reason not to put on your flirtiest frock to paint the town red… or pink.  Nothing stops traffic quite like a little red dress, but if you’re not crazy about crimson, there are several shades of pink- pale to punchy- that will also do the trick turning heads.

Friday Frocks: Festive not Floozy

holiday red dressesNothing makes a statement like a red dress.  Just make sure the red dress you’re wearing is making the right statement.  You want your holiday frock to say “festive” not “floozy.”  No one wants to be the drunk girl falling out of her LRD (little red dress) post Santa-con Firieball shots complete with felt Santa hat.  Instead, embrace the colors or the season, bright crimson, deep green, and a touch of metallics to land yourself a spot right under the mistletoe.

Friday Frocks: Cheers To That

champagne toastThere’s lot to celebrate this time of year besides having just celebrated’s sixth year of publishing as was made painfully clear this afternoon as our email chain grew longer and longer in an attempt to get all of our favorite girls together for a holiday party.  Every time we thought we’d locked down a day to congregate over cooking and cocktails, someone would pipe in with regrets over having obligations to another engagement.  We still haven’t quite nailed down a date for our holiday festivities, but in the meantime, I did nail down some festive frocks to get you through this season’s holiday party.  Cheers!

Friday Frocks: Hittin’ the Books

private school girlsWhat’s easier than having a plaid skirt and button down laid out for your every morning?  A smart little dress that requires no mixing or matching because it is an entire outfit in and of itself.  Geek out in something plaid or opt for a collar that needs no popping.  The hardest thing about getting dressed in the morning will be deciding which shoes to wear.
