Fit and Flare


After what can only be described as an epically fun Christmas with too much food and too much wine, a dress that errors on the side of forgiveness seems not only appropriate, but necessary.

Enter the Color Block Fit and Flare Dress by Jones NY. It’s the perfect dress to throw on after a few weeks of holiday indulgence that is just as comfortable as it is chic.

The pattern is slimming and the knee length is just right. A long sleeve is the most desirable (and yet hardest to find) style of dress. Our clients go crazy when they find an affordable and stylish option.

Pair this with black tights and ankle boots. I recently bought the Coach Nila Bootie and while the heel is high, they are surprisingly comfortable.

  1. Love the ease of this dress, the fabulous bootie and the fact it hides more than one indulgence over the holidays. Love the new format and excited to see what you and Christine have for us in 2015
