Our newest collection, Birds of a Feather, has us all a flutter! People are positively flocking to our stores to try on this beautiful print, which features colorful North American birds (and the occasional parrot) set against a soft cream background. Inspired by the Victorian naturalist illustrations of Audubon, this collection is a classic take on summer style that’s versatile enough to wear all year round.

 

Shelita is picture perfect in our Gathered Skirt. This full, high-waisted style provides plenty of opportunity to mix & match, making it an incredible versatile piece for wearing all year round. Shelita paired it with our black Dolly Tie Top for a summer look that’s refined, yet a little bit rock n’ roll. Worn with the Chelsea Crew Jojo Heels and adorned with two vintage-inspired jeweled bird pins, Shelita’s style is a seamless blend of casual and classic.

I don’t have exact measurements, but here goes…I’m approximately 40″, 43″, 47″.

 

Diva Brittney is an utter babe in our brand new Veronica Shirtwaist Dress. This style marries a backless, halter bodice (with stretch panels for the perfect fit) with a gently gathered skirt and button detailing for a look that’s straight out of a storybook. With a high collar similar to our Streetcar dress and sweet (removable) contrast tie, this dress is the sweet, feminine summer frock of your dreams. Brittney accessorized with the Re-Mix Lillie Pumps and a wide-brim straw hat, putting a picnic-ready spin on this classic style.

Timeless and classic, Gena is effortlessly elegant in our fan-favorite Ruby Middy Dress. With a bold contrast bodice, featuring adjustable straps that can be crossed over for additional support, this dress is so easy to wear you’ll never want to take it off!

Taking this print to all new heights, Kat’s tropical spin on our Getaway Dress is the perfect look for cocktail parties, cruises, and beach-side barbecues. The Getaway Dress is an all-new style, named by one of our fans for its light, carefree feel. With a pleated neckline (similar to our Lena tops), adjustable straps, and removable neck tie, this style offers the best of both worlds: a little color and a little contrast! Kat offset her look with a vibrant Hibiscus Hair Flower, Bakelite Twist Earrings from Loretta, and Laura Espadrilles from Toni Pons.

I love the light and airy fabric of this collection! It’s going to be comfortable for hot summer time but the colors lend themselves to great pairings for fall, too. And the Getaway has such a different neckline with the removable tie.

 

 

In our Birds of a Feather Circle Day Dress, Edith has waltzed right off the silver screen and into our hearts! Our Circle Day Dress was such a hit with our fans that it’s already flown away, but we’ll let everyone know about the potential for preorders and restocks as soon as we can. Accessorized with a pair of vintage specs (model’s own), the Javitz Heels from Chelsea Crew, and our elegant Birdcage Purse, Edith’s style is flight of fancy meets contemporary classic.

Our new Green Voile separates are ideal for pairing with Birds of a Feather! Mix and match the Trixie Top with our Gathered Skirt, or take a leaf out of Nikki’s book and go totally green in our Trixie Dress. Nikki is absolutely radiant in this Trashy Diva classic, worn halter style and accessorized with a bold Carmen Miranda Brooch from Loretta. With contrasting Llivia Wedges from Toni Pons and a pop of color on her wrist (the Polka Dot Bangle from De Luxe) this look is feminine, fun, and just a little bit fruity!

Bitta is a vintage vision is our Green Voile Annette Dress!
