There are dresses and then there are dresses... I saw this one and couldn't believe how incredible this design is and how unique and unusual. It would be one for a very special occasion (New Year's Eve?), but what a statement it would make! ~ Cathy.

Houston doesn't recognize that it is November. Nah, it says... I'll just keep that thermostat jacked up in the high 80s. But how long can one keep wearing summer attire without looking ridiculous? Solution: Find lightweight flowy dresses in more autumn tones. I love olive green and think this would be a welcome addition to my wardrobe. Check out the crochet details. Pretty cool paired with these fetching open toe booties, right? ~Cathy

Is there a glamourous event coming up on your social calendar? Feeling bold? I saw this killer cocktail dress and I couldn't resist sharing it on this page. And I am thrilled to see more elegant and strappy shoes that don't come with sky-high heels. Question... Is this a look you could see yourself wearing or not? How do you handle dressing up for special events? It would be great to see some of your favorite dress-up looks. Please share here if you like. ~ Cathy

I love looking at dresses... casual, fun, long, short, elegant, or formal, I love dresses! This is one that I feel would be an excellent addition to my collection. So pretty and feminine and I believe a very versatile choice too. I think I need this one for a holiday party! Along with these lady-like peep toe pumps. ~ Cathy

Any big events coming up in your future? It's that time of year when the social season is in high gear. How do you like this look? A fit and flare easy to wear red dress with a killer leopard clutch is so elegant yet fun and fresh. This combo gets my vote! ~ Cathy

Ready to have a great weekend? I know I am and after a tough week, I look to comfort while giving a nod to style. Maxi dresses have been my go-to option for such situations for ages. This one looks super cool, while being a bit more polished and offering more coverage than the usual maxi. I like paring them with dressed up thong like these from Tommy Bahama. ~ Cathy

I always feel that once Labor Day has come and gone the social season really gears up. Many more parties, charity events, and of course the art and music scene gets into full swing about this time of year. Green is going to be a huge color in many ensembles this fall. I came across this gorgeous frock and could instantly see myself swishing into the theater or symphony event with a pair of fabulous black dressy sandals. Are you looking forward to dressing up more this fall? ~ Cathy

Ahhh.... nothing like a gorgeous weekend. I predict this one will be amazing and require a really great dress to set off a brunch or lunch outing. This dolman sleeve floral number caught my eye. I am a big fan of this type of dress as it is so easy to accommodate a variety of events. Cute, huh? ~ Cathy

When you know you're going to be outside a maxi dress is a great choice. It keeps you cooler & less sweaty than shorts, pants, or anything with a belt, they keep the bugs off your legs, plus they look cute! Enjoy your Labor Day! Here I am at a BBQ in Waller, Texas. ~ Andrea.
Is it really the official end of summer? No!!! Here in Houston, we will be shaking and baking in 90+ temps for many weeks. But even in subtropical climes, one still cast an eye toward packing up the super summery looks and transitioning into a bit more structured apparel in early September . Until then, this boho inspired maxi is a weekend wonder. It could go from a beach party to a patio dinner with equal flair. These sandals would be so cool with the dress for a fabulous Labor Day event. ~ Cathy

So here in Houston we are still in the throes of a very hot summer. On that note, we have been showcasing a number of white dress options, and I just came across this winner. It really caught my eye as I am a sucker for crochet dresses. This one features a black underlay and a removable collar. It looks very crisp, fresh and inviting. Wouldn't these black patent Tory Burch flat sandals polish it off nicely? ~ Cathy

My love affair with maxi dresses continues! I am always on the lookout for pretty yet comfortable options that I can pack easily for weekend getaways. This one would check all of the boxes. Plus the positioning of the stripes makes this a very flattering choice too! ~ Cathy
I spotted this great dress from the Worth New York fall collection and it brought me back to some 60's styles that I loved. Sleeveless, swingy, and with a geometric pattern, this would be a perfect work-to-evening dress. Poppy red is a huge color this fall, and you can never go wrong with black and white. Everything old really is new again! ~ Pat

The temps are high but you don't have to loose your cool. A dress like this breezy maxi would be idea for a lunch outing, a fun day with your pals or a casual date night. I love it paired with these fabulous gold Kendra Scott earrings. What do you think? ~ Cathy.
If you are in Houston this weekend, you may very well be attending the annual White Linen Nights event. I know I am. As to not be a dud, wearing white is must! I am loving these pretty options. Now if I can just keep from spilling something... ~ Cathy.
At last! The weekend upon us and I say, let the fun begin! Here is a cute little A-line number that is custom made for the good times ahead. I can just see this working for a brunch or lunch date, or to wear to a casual party. If you want a little more coverage a lightweight cardigan or even a denim jacket should do the trick. Flirty, fun and who doesn't love bananas?! ~ Cathy.
In spite of the soaring temperatures, the stores are featuring some fall styles already. I spotted this dress by Worth New York in their fall line that would be a perfect transition piece. I am in love with this pretty blue shade that flatters many skin tones. This style can be easily accessorized with a scarf, necklace, jacket or cardigan. A blazer makes it suitable for a business meeting or add sparkly jewelry and stilettos for an evening out. This is a perfect addition to your transition wardrobe. ~ Pat.
As much as summer sucks in Houston (the heat?!), I do love the fact I get to wear all my summer dresses :) Have some fun with prints & keep them semi fitted because we all know we'll sweat! ~ Andrea.
I often like wearing this flowy type of dress for fun summer events. It is easy to throw over my head and with the addition of a great sandal, I feel ready to head out to a festive outing. Dresses are my personal favorite ensemble as they require such little effort. Are you a fan of dresses too? ~ Cathy.

What to wear to make a subtle but elegant statement? This pink dress with a nice cut would work so nicely for a daytime wedding paired with strappy gold sandals and lightweight dangly earrings. It's time to toast! ~ Cathy.

Is it blistering hot where you live? Here in Houston, with the arrival of summer this week, we are watching the thermostat go up, up, up. So what's a gal to do to look cool and polished for summer festivities? I vote for this white shift with black piping. And paired with these strappy heels, I think this would make for a very head-turning look. ~ Cathy.

I couldn't resist eyeing this super cute frock. Yes, it's kitchy, but so fun! It's a Ladies Who Lunch look with a wink. J'adore! ~ Cathy.
Now that the summer heat has been turned up considerably, it's a good time to circle back around to the newest collection of maxi dresses. They are still on trend and so easy to wear. Just throw on and go. Cool and comfy and this particular one should appeal to all of the inner hippies out there! ~ Cathy.

Throw on a sundress and add a light sweater for warmth or modesty. Sandals are a must, and cool sunglasses are required. A chunky watch and some fun jewelry complete the look. Grab a friend or two and go shopping or have brunch - enjoy! ~ Pat.
It's the season for graduations, weddings and celebrations of all kinds. I absolutely love this gorgeous and feminine dress. And check out these sassy t-strap shoes. How perfect would this be for most any dress up occasion?
