Summer is in full swing and we couldn’t be happier!  Long days, balmy nights and glistening water!  We have worked all winter to get our summer bod ready for those great summer dresses. Now we just need to choose the perfect dress.  A dress that can be worn to BBQs, pool parties, restaurants or casual summer lunches!  It must be versatile!

The perfect dress for summer is easy fit and breathable for those hot hot days (Our home town often has 43deg during February and March.. infact, summer isn’t summer without at least one heatwave!). You need to feel comfortable but look stylish.  Dresses that can be worn from breakfast to dinner should be a wardrobe staple. A simple change of footwear will see you through from the most casual brunch to a more formal dinner party.  Choosing the right cut for you is a personal taste.


Maxi dresses are romantic, comfortable and so easy to wear.  Their bohemian appeal are popular and suit a wide range of shapes and sizes. Some are loose fitting whilst others skim the body.  Maxi dresses are flattering for all shapes and sizes. They elongate the body.

YILKI DRESS // Sunset Dragonfly


Our Elliot dress is the perfect shift dress. It skims lightly over the body giving a hint of a contour but still hiding problem areas. The Elliot dress is tapered at the waist to give a more flattering shape to the typical shift dress.  With its easy fit styling, this shift dress is the perfect casual summer outfit.

ELLIOT DRESS // Rose Quartz and Serenity



Our Rosetta dress is a soft luxurious version of the classic empire line dress. The cut is one of the most flattering cuts on all shapes. Its waistline is high up directly under the bust and the rest of the dress flows delicately from this line.

Each of these styles can be worn with your favourite sandals for a weekend lunch, bare foot on the sand or chunky heels for a on trend look.  The best part is that they are all fully hand washable… a must for summer!  No one wants to dry clean especially if you are travelling to far away places or beach resorts.
