I am in heaven this morning! Just received our latest shipment of new dresses! I have to rein myself in so I don’t just try them all on! They’re practical, appropriate for playing in the orchestra, wearing out to dinner, to auditions, interviews, performances. They’re elegant – the Bamboo rayon drapes well, yet doesn’t cling. It moves with you when you walk. There’s the feminine flutter of a hemline, the sweet detail of a rosette at the small of your back, placed just so… I love these styles and want all of them!
The big three for Fall: The classic “Diana” dress, with it’s scoop neck, modified Empire waist and three-quarter sleeves. It’s tea-length so it’s comfortable and covers everything. This dress is named after one of our favorite women, Diana Dorman, of the Lamplighters Music Theatre Orchestra. Next, we love the “Carol Ann” style, The popular cowl neckline, three-quarter sleeves, and straight style to cover the knee, take you from work to a night on the town. This dress was named after our lovely, dynamic Fashion Director, Carol Campbell. Then, lastly, we have my personal favorite, the “Cleora” dress. This scoop neck style has three-quarter sleeves, each decorated with a single, charming rosette, which echo the lovely rosette which anchors the ankle-length fabric in the back. I named this dress after my sister’s best friend, Cleora, whose beautiful 1940’s face evokes memories of wartime romance and roses under a white trellis.
Each of these dresses is available in sizes XS – 3X, in black; new colors coming! $198.00.
