Dresses (Part 1)

The one thing we know is that finding a special dress takes lot of effort. There are a lot of dresses out there that certainly keep you from being naked, but they don't always make you look beautiful.

With all of the weddings, dates, summer evening walks, brunches, nice days we have coming up dresses are the perfect outfit. All you need is a dress, a pair of shoes and out the door you go.

Women are shaped so differently from one another so we've made sure to have a diverse selection of dresses. Since we've started with Malene Birger we've realized that she is the queen of lovely dresses. We've got in stock cotton dresses and silk ones. Many of them have hidden pockets which just makes them even more precious.

Dress 1 : Comfort & Fun
This dress has an awesome graphic print, but it's not just all about the print. This dress can change its fit and silhouette dramatically with just one belt. The fabric has the perfect softness and flexibility to enhance any body shapes. This is the great dress for a lazy day or an active day, and also you can change the way it looks easily with the belt if you're too busy to get changed for going out. (Of course, the belt comes with the dress.) Here are some examples of styling. 
A: The belt --- just on your waist.
B: Lower waisted belt.
C: No belt.
D: Empire waisted.
Dress: Sheena Dress by Tiger of Sweden ($189)
Dress 2 : Swinging 60's 
If you're into the 60's style, a mini tube dress is a must.  Even if not, this type of dresses usually look really cute and young, and work very well with boyish body types or curvy figures. The pleats on the front create the beautiful shades and movoment on silver.
Dress: Silk Shift (with custom made silk screen printed hemp silk) by Paperbird ($360)
Dress 3 : Jazzy 1920's inspired
These are the 20's inspired dresses that are totally free from the strict waist lines. They usually have straight and long lines from the top to the bottom. This kind of dresses look very easy to pull off, but they can be quite tricky if you don't know your body shapes well enough. 
Dress: By Malene Birger.
This style has been very successful with any body shapes. It's slimming on the curvy body types, and it gives enough fullness on the boyish slender types as well. This antique yellow gives you some soft warmth on your skin. 
Dress: Mustard Dress by Bruuns Bazzar ($250)
This dress has the classic 20's style of "dropped waist". It's a straight tube shape, so it can be very fitted around the hips. 
Dress: Essential Dress by Malene Birger ($325)
This is the most relaxed style. It has the amazing textured fabric and this soft grey looks very calming. It has a sort of the classic 20's look, and also has a bit of nostalgic country feel as well. It is well balanced with some subtle but amazing details to keep it look original and modern. This square neck line is the key of this dress. It helps the dress not looking all round or shapeless.
