Retro Blocking
Retro blocking with denim carries over from last season with a few additions. Various shades and hues of blue are pieced together in differing shapes and sizes to form unique, eye-catching patterns, giving a twist to otherwise plain pants and jackets.

March 6 is National Dress Day

Share your favorite dress memories using #NationalDressDay

national-dress-dayThe inaugural National Dress Day takes place on Monday, March 6, and is a holiday intended for reliving dress memories from proms to birthdays to weddings. On this day, everyone is invited to post pictures of their best moments in their favorite dress on Facebook and Instagram (@NationalDressDay) using #NationalDressDay.

National Dress Day was founded by Ashley Lauren, founder and designer of the ASHLEYlauren collection, as a way to relive and celebrate our dearest dress memories. “I have fond memories wearing dresses and I realized that dresses hold such powerful emotions for women,” said Ashley Lauren about founding the national holiday. “I remember the dresses I wore to my prom, first job interview, first date, competing in a pageant, my first red carpet event, the list goes on. This is a fun day to cherish and celebrate those memories. To me this day is about empowering women to celebrate our femininity and cherish memories of wearing dresses. It’s the women and their stories behind the dresses that make this day so special.”

No matter what style dress it is, National Dress Day can be celebrated in many ways.  So on March 6, don’t forget to post your favorite dress memories or, if you don’t have any, put on your heels and favorite dress and make some.
