Dream Sateen

We are so delighted by these new blouse-weight sateens! 

Delicate, lightweight 100% cotton with the subtle sheen of a satin weave.

The prints are full of saturated color and very wearable. We're all planning our summer tops and blouses!

Shop them all here!

Western Chambray

A classic chambray is a perfect choice for so many styles of garment. In fact, I think every wardrobe needs at least one chambray piece!

It's got a soft, heathered look with multiple tones across the weave. Like denim, chambray goes with everything!

A fitted button-down shirt is the classic choice, but blouses, shirtdresses, and skirts are also great options!

Shop this chambray here!

Friday Fun Fact!

Charles Frederick Worth is generally credited as the father of haute couture and the first fashion designer to become a household name.

Starting in 1858, Worth created bold new designs from his Paris salon. He displayed garments on live models and pioneered the fashion salon experience.

Empress Eugénie was an avid patron, which only contributed to Worth's popularity. Famous actresses of the time also wore his stunning designs.

Pictured at right are two of his most famous designs, the "Ironwork" dress, and the "Cloudburst" dress.

Charles died in 1895, but the House of Worth continued to produce couture gowns well into the 20th century.

Google image search for House of Worth gowns is a delightful rabbit hole to fall into!
