The Perfect Valnetine's Dress!

Share |
Looking for the perfect date dress? We have them! Ranging from whimsical to sassy we can help add a little romance to your life!

My first pick, because I'm a romantic at heart, is the Adelle Dress from Weston (formally Weston Wear). I just love the handkerchief hem and this pale pink is such a contemporary color. If you follow fashion then you know that pastels are here to stay. And don't get me going on this print! Very vintage-y and oh-so-pretty!
My second pick is the Disc Dress from Bailey 44. This dress is mad-sexy! The faux leather mixed with a ponti inset make it form fitting but also figure-flattering. What I love about this dress: it can be dressed down when looking like a siren isn't the look you're going for. Just add a boot and a blazer and you've got an easy day piece.
My third pick is for my ladies who love to look pretty, but are looking for more of a sporty-edge. The Ricochet Dress by Bailey 44 is extremely flattering; intersecting stripes make for amazing body lines! What do I love about this dress? I can't think about a time or place this dress wouldn't be a hit. Add a denim jacket for a dressed-down look, add boots for a sassy look, wedges for a night out, and flats for daytime. Cover your arms and this dress is a season-less number that should be packed on every out-of-town adventure!
My next pick is for the lady who likes a good floral print. The Tamara dress by Weston just hollers for a pair of vintage inspired cowboy boots and a denim jacket! To dress it up for "date night" sub out your denim  for your favorite wrap, add heels and you're good to go. For work pair it with a blazer and flats-are you getting that this dress is super-versatile yet? Is it flattering you may ask? OMG YES!! This fabric skims over bumps and bring out your best figure features!
My last pick (but certainly NOT least, I listed these in no particular order), is the Besty Dress by Bailey 44. This is for my gals who are straight-up sassy. Faux leather adds an edge, the A-line skirt adds just a tad of sweet and the exposed zipper in the back add a ton of sass! If you're a gal with a small waist and a bit of hip, this is the dress for you!

Have a fab V-day from Mink. Let us know if you have any questions. We're here to make you look and feel fabulous! 503-232-3500.

How to Wear a Pencil Skirt Casually

Share |
We started with the Scrimmage Skirt from Bailey 44, a striped basic pencil skirt. It's easy to pair a pencil with heels and a blouse for a dressed-up look, but I notice that a lot of folks don't consider wearing a pencil skirt dressed down. That's why the Bobbie Top from Velvet is the perfect pairing. It's basically a fancy sweatshirt, so not only are we dressing a pencil skirt down, but showing you how to dress a super-casual top up!
Think of your pencil skirt like skinny jeans. Anything you would pair with skinny denim will usually look great with a pencil skirt. Remember to avoid tight from head to toe. If you're wearing a fitted bottom look for a top with a little more volume. In the picture below we did just that and added even more volume around the neck with the City Wrap Scarf in red-plus the scarf adds a pop of color!
We styled this look with a tall riding boot in order to add some additional volume to the ankle and calf area, thus further balancing the fitted pencil skirt. We also added a burgundy tight for another little hit of color.
Lastly, we wanted to show you this same outfit with a simple long necklace. This look is a little more clean and simple, but equally as cute!
Pencil skirts are a great spring wardrobe essential. So sub the jeans out (at least once a week), and add some flair with a skirt. Challenge yourself to change up your look this spring!
Here's are the looks from top to bottom-
The first look is:
City Wrap Scarf
Bobbie Top from Velvet
Scrimmage Skirt From Bailey 44

The second look is:
Chains and Knot necklace
Bobbie Top from Velvet
Scrimmage Skirt from Bailey 44

The lovely Lauryn, our employee and model is 5'5 and is a size 4 on top and a 4/6 on the bottom. She's wearing a size small in the top and a size small in the pencil skirt.  Please let us know if you have any questions. We are here to help you look and feel fabulous! XO--Carla
