Effie's Heart Summer Look!

The Dolce Vita dress is back!  This Effie's Heart dress is a customer favorite!  The new print is fresh, colorful and a lovely expression of the new season.  Shown here with a Shiraleah clutch.

Summer strapless dress.

Few looks are easier than a simple strapless sundress and a pair of leather sandals.  We love this beauty from Red Haute!

Summer Style Inspired: Brigitte Bardot on Holiday

More than one couture designer has taken inspiration from the cool, blissful style of French actress Brigitte Bardot.  Bardot on holiday is the definition of effortless chic.  But more than that, it is the joy of simplicity.  The art of packing a few easy pieces in a shoulder bag and enjoying a brilliant weekend away!

And don't forget the casual no-fuss beachy hair, a beautiful smile and a heart open for adventure.

So, this summer, be inspired!  Pack your favorite maxi or sundress.  Grab your beach hat and breezy summer scarf.  Toss in a pair of white jeans, a few tank tops and your leather sandals.  Tuck a few bobby-pins and a hair tie in your pocket to celebrate your unstyled locks.  Relax, and enjoy all that summer has to offer.
