Ark & WHOAH

Happy Spring! Monday was the official first day of Spring, but to be honest we have been enjoying the spring-like temperatures and showers for awhile. And with Spring officially among us comes Spring weddings, holidays, and special occasions. We love that this dress from Ark & Co seems to have the fresh buds of spring woven into every inch. This dress can stand alone at any outdoor get together and depending on shoes and accessories can easily be dressed up or down. We love the hint of metallic thread that catches the light (because trust us, you’re going to want to twirl in this one!)

Be the Bouquet in Ark & Co. this Valentines Day

It’s Valentines!

Sometimes it’s best to go back to the basics of a tradition. With Valentines it’s chocolate and flowers, and who doesn’t like chocolate and flowers, right?

Flowers are one of the magical wonders of this world. Sure, a Minx can get by without them in her life, by why would she? If you’ve ever walked by a flower shop on a regular basis, one day it hits you, as you stare at the bright bunches of roses, calla lily and spider mums, “My gosh, I could buy those flowers for myself!” Suddenly your apartment is transformed by scent, color and the soft texture of petal and leaf.

Valentines Day Outfit: The Self as Valentine

This Valentines be the bouquet. Drape yourself in the rich and vibrantly colored play of a bold floral pattern with this elegant maxi dress. The way that the fitted bodice and long slim arms balance the voluminous paneled flare of the skirt will make you feel as beautiful as any flower.

This floral gown is reminiscent of a flamenco dress in silhouette and movement. It’s a dress you could really stamp your foot in with a look of fierce passion on your face. However, the detailing and tailoring of the waist and neck hail more from the 1930’s silver screen, think Ginger Rogers or Nora from the Thin Man film.

 Then imagine yourself in motion in this dress. It’s mid February and you are moving through Valentines with grace, moving towards spring, better yet: bringing spring. As you walk the flowers from your gown multiply, spilling out behind you, leaving a soft carpet rich will color and the clean true scent of roses!

How to Style this Look

Ark & Co., the line that created this beautiful floral maxi dress, is a brand you would be wise to keep an eye on. We love the Ark & Co. clothing line because they are directly inspired by couture fashion. They always deliver very wearable pieces that retain the same special details gleaned from the runways.

While we love the romance that this long sleeved maxi dress creates, we added some edgier pieces to round out the look and give it a little more street style. We love to layer two seemingly different styles within one look. This creates a fun, dynamic and versatile experience. If you will, a little salty with your sweet!
