The straight cut and gathered long sleeves have that romantic baby doll look that goes so well with oxfords or boots. Take it into fall with the Oversized Jacket that looks pulled right from your boyfriend’s closet.
Wear this flirty Double Layer Camisole under a cardigan, on its own, or as lingerie. Diagonal seams and a lovely ruffled neckline add visual interest to this wardrobe essential. Ribbon straps are hand tied for a flirty touch.

The Boho Dress is perfect for hippies and relaxing late summer afternoons. Sheer fabric is layered and gathered at the front and back for a whimsical look. The sleeves are gathered and the body is cut straight for a 60s feeling.
What could be more feminine than an leopard print Pencil Skirt? This knee length skirt is sectioned for the best fit with a high waist and hidden side zipper.
A Peasant Blouse with Tie Front is pretty for evening. The scoop neck is edged with ruffles and the generous length can be altered into a tunic or trapeze top. Little cap sleeves and a tie detail finish it off.
Long puffed sleeves have Victorian elegance in the Blouse with Neck Sash. This pretty top has a fantasy look thanks to the long neck scarf and shoulder epaulettes. Pair it with a pair of vintage looking High Waisted Trousers with front pleats and tapered legs.
This collection has traces of different eras so you can put together fanciful looks. Sheer fabrics and layering pieces like vests and jackets are the transitional pieces you’ll need to take your wardrobe from late summer to early fall.
