Now In-Store: Romona Keveza Legends Spring 2010 January 2, 2010

This is a fun time of the year for us – new dresses start coming in and it is like getting a presents from the designers.  We are going to try and profile a new dress we receive each week so we may share with you our excitement!
We just received this gown in from Romona Keveza from her Legends collection.  It is truly stunning.  The runway pictures do not do it justice.  It is incredibly stylish and fashionable.  The sweetheart neckline and extended waist are so flattering – and amazingly – it is an all lace gown for under $3500!
A breathtaking piece from her Spring 2010 collection!

Thought this was such an interesting article – and a trend that I have definitely noticed in the store.

Convent of the Sacred Heart Fashion Show 11/19/09 November 19, 2009

It was such a thrill for me today to participate in the CSH Fashion show at the Rye Town Hilton today.  We were there with the Darien Sports Shop who showed off some incredible fashions!  Few things cuter than seeing 4 year old girls walk down the runway in high fashion and Tory Burch Reva flats!

When the girls graduate from Sacred Heart they wear long white dresses – (as I did when I graduated from there many years ago!)  So it was so much fun to “close” the show with three of our gowns.  Unfortunately an iPhone does not take the best pictures to start with – then try to take an action shot – and – well… can see the results!

On a personal note – I want to thank Convent of the Sacred Heart for allowing me to participate in something that benefits the school.  It’s nice to be able to give back to an institution that gave me so much!


Junior League of Greenwich Fashion Show October 28, 2009

We were recently invited to participate at the Junior League of Greenwich’s fashion show for their debutante cotillion in Belle Haven this past Sunday. It was so exciting to participate, especially because the chair of the Cotillion committee is a former client, Jennifer Singer Stranzl who was married in Venice, Italy a few years ago.

We worked with some wonderful and sweet girls who couldn’t have been more excited to wear some beautiful gowns from Monique Lhuillier, Rivini, Anne Barge and some of our other wonderful designers. Here are some pictures (taken with my iPhone – so please excuse the quality) of the girls before they took the long walk to show the gowns!

I just love the classic look of kid leather gloves with white gowns!

Such a lovely view of the backyard from the house.
