This classic pencil skirt features rounded inserts in the front and back.


This long sleeve dress has a military feel to it! It has gold decorative buttons on the shoulder and pleats on the front of the dress skirt. It also has a close crew neck and bunched sleeves near the wrists.


This beautiful silk velvet wrap dress is the essence of elegant femininity. The narrow sleeves are accented with shirring at the shoulders and trumpet sleeves.

    Very nice collection, “sophisticated” indeed. The whole well-balanced wardrobe in one style.

    Fall-must think of trench coats for the transition to wet and colder weather! I like that sheath dress-potential to use more than one colour in the garment. The dress would spice up a pair of tights rather than a tunic for a change.

      Would for sure spice up a pair of tights! My favorite fall look is a dress with tights and boots.
