The Becca

Wanna party? So do we if we’re doing it in this dress!  The Becca has just the right amount of embellishment, a V-neckline, and a little zipper at the back.


 The Pansy Dress

Give those shoulders a little room to breathe. It’s a bohemian-inspired design with an off-the-shoulder neckline, embroidered detailing, a zip closure, and maxi length. Great for the daytime or evenings!


There’s nothing easier than a sexy slip dress. This blue one features delicate straps, a V-neckline, slit at side, and a zip closure. Perfect for those days you only have a few minutes to get dressed and out the door.


There’s nothing a little velvet can’t fix, right? This tank features a V-neckline and fitted silhouette—perfect with the bell skirt. It’s time to raise some bell. This epic mid-length skirt features a beautiful floral print, high waist, and a bell silhouette. Throw it on with heels to give it just the right amount of edge.
