Take a Bow

The floral shift dress is (or definitely should be!) a staple in every gals’ wardrobe. Its flirty and girly while still being adaptable to everyone’s personal style and flair. They can be dressed up with heels, or down with a denim jacket and sneakers. Its no secret the millions of wardrobe variations you can create with a floral dress and a little creativity. Feeling tired of your classic combos? Try different textures in the same color family. We love these velvet belt that can be tied in many different ways to suit the occasion. Adding some statement shoes, with some unexpected texture like faux fur or metal hardware, adds interest and changes up the entire vibe without my effort. Accessorizing is key for putting a new spin on your most beloved go-to pieces.

Hi Minxies! We hope you and your loved ones had a lovely Mother’s Day weekend. We are sending love to all the mama’s out there! Now, nothin’ comes close to a floral maxi dress for Summer. This maxi dress from Cotton Candy LA is perfect for an outdoor wedding – a simple ceremony at dusk and then dancing the night away. This silhouette is perfect for the occasion and the fabric is soft and comfortable for the all-day occasion. After the ceremony, we move to the dance floor! These wedge mules from Seychelles are quick + easy to kick off so you wont miss a moment of the Cha-Cha-Slide. For all occasions, the Minxies have got you covered!

Connect the Dots

The name of the game this is Spring is… wait for it!…RUFFLES!! This trend has been popping up everywhere and we are loving it! The ruffle trend hasn’t ever really fall off the grid – it just goes in and out of subtlety throughout the seasons. This detail stands out nicely with the Bardot-style or peasant top or even as some added interest on a pair of socks. Traffic People incorporates this ruffle trend beautifully in sleeves this maxi dress. This piece is a total show stopper and conversation starter, while still not being completely over the top. At Minx, we love on-trend pieces and even more when trends are used in a way that makes them totally timeless.

Seal the Deal

May has arrived! Summer is fast approaching, but we love getting to sit still and breathe in the Spring breeze just as much. Perfect for these transitional months are classic staples like this striped midi-dress from Monteau. Not only do we love the price point, but we love how effortlessly it can be incorporated into any style + look. This dress really is the perfect pallet for fine-tuning to your personal tastes. While these red Seychelles sandals add an element of drama and color to the look – we can totally see this with some great high top sneakers, classic black loafers, and anything in between.

I Dare You to Stop Staring

With the holidays around the corner, consider this an open invitation to rock that show -stopper dress you’ve been holding out for. It may be sparkly, it may be bodycon, it may be crushed velvet, it may even have rhinestones top to bottom- but either way, NOW is the time! At Minx, we literally cannot stop staring at this Stop Staring Dress with beautiful ruffle and bow detail. Although the dress is clearly the main event, don’t feel like you should hold back on accessories. Our David Aubrey necklace and Extasia cameo earrings are bold and perfectly compliment the monochromatic tones of the dress and shoes. Wearing this dress, we actually dare you to try to stop staring!

Winter Inspiration from the Archives

What a wild winter this has been! Record high temperatures made for a holiday season like we’ve never seen before. But, as all good things tend to do, our Christmas in the sun came to and end and now we’re right smack back in the middle of winter. Maybe it’s only by comparision, but this Janurary chill is feeling especially shocking this year.

If you’re anything like us, dressing for winter can be a puzzle. Our favorite flirty wears are often pushed aside for the more practical (read: shapless, bulky, and big) pieces. We’ve gotta stay warm, right?! Well, rest easy fearless fashionistas! There is a way to dress for the weather without sacrifing style! And how better to remember than a trip through the Minx archives!

So get ready to dust off that duster, layer up your favorite frock, and get inspired by some of our favorite looks from winters past!
