LBD Shopping

On September 2, 2014, by Stop Staring

Our girl Jessica, the blogger behind Pinup Persuasion, recently shot our infamous Love dress which sparked a conversation about what to look for when searching for the perfect LBD.

– Look for classic, flattering silhouettes that will work from season to season and with a variety of accessories you already own.

– The perfect LBD strikes the balance between making you feel comfortable and making you feel like a knockout.

– LBD’s are meant to be versatile! That means day to night, office to soirée, season to season

– Look for LBD’s with unique details to express your style, such as keyhole backs and unexpected bows like our Love dress Jessica is modeling

New Threads: Shopping for Fall

On August 26, 2014, by Stop Staring

Depending on where you live you may be saying goodbye to sunny summer days sooner than you’d like.  You can brighten your spirits knowing that a new season means new styles and an opportunity to kick your closet into high gear for Fall.  We’ve rounded up some eye-catching pieces that will make post-Labor Day dressing a lot more fun.

1) Fall fabrics like tweed and patterns like flannel may not come to mind as the most feminine options for dresses, but look again!

2) Now that proximity to air conditioning won’t be determining where you go and what you wear, getting dressed for work gets fun again!


3) Cooler months call for a little more coverage but before you go for the cardigan you throw on over everything, try an LBD with sophisticated should work to keep you warm and on trend.

On August 18, 2014, by Stop Staring


While sky high heels and a sexy LBD may not be your typical grocery shopping ensemble, it’s all in a days work for actress Ashley Greene.  Proving there’s no reason to pass up looking and feeling your best, Greene was a serious showstopper at a recent supermarket run wearing our Million Dollar Dress.  Now we have more than enough inspiration  ditch the sweats and glam it next time we’re running those less than glamorous errands.
