gidi Vintage Print Dress

Summer is in full effect, so it’s time to crack out the bright and colorful dresses. I’ve been sashaying my way into more edgy pieces this year, stepping outside my basic solids and stripes. This gorgeous shift dress by  Taneasha Puntry’s label, gidi, is the perfect focal piece that’s all things summer. But before I get into telling you about why this dress is awesome, let me give you the scoop on the designer and label. Chicago Fashion Incubator Alumni Taneasha Puntry designed her label to compliment a woman’s natural curves, while still being chic and classy. She strives for a tailored look, inspired by Coco Chanel and Napa Valley; meaning every piece is great for both day and evening wear. What I love most about this dress is the blend of both classic and vintage: you have a classic shift dress silhouette with a bold, vintage colored print. Pair with nude heels and a jewel-toned clutch and you’ve got a stunning outfit. This is an indie designer on the cusp, based out of Chicago, that all our readers in the windy city and beyond should know about. You can find the entire gidi collection online which you can buy direct, but it is also currently exclusive to Strut boutique in Geneva, IL.

Piper Strapless Sundress

Compendium Boutique Piper Strapless Sundress

Spring is here so bring out the colorful sundresses! If you’re looking for something truly one of a kind, you’ve got to see this fancy frock part of a limited edition collection available at indie boutique Compendium. This cheery colored sundress features a lined bodice, concealed back zipper, and an adorable vintage-inspired dotted stripe pattern. Perhaps, what I love most is the darling A-line skirt fit that is flattering on almost all body types. Yellow not your thing? Go for this dress in vibrant turquoise or purple; one if not all of the three colors will complement just about any skin tone. No matter your local spring climate, this dress will work with countless other things to wear it with like opaque tights, blazers, trench coats, or cropped denim jackets. Also since it’s strapless, I see it easily transitioning from day to night for countless social occasions. This is definitely an OMG-worthy piece to add to your wardrobe this spring!

The devil’s in the details, but that’s not the case with this Dotty P chiffon top; the embellished collar is just the icing on the cake! The sheer turquoise minty color is so on trend and the sequinned collar give it a nice edge. Perfect worn prim and proper dressed up with a blazer and pumps or naughtily dressed down with distressed skinnies and combat boots. I’ve been loving so much from Dorothy Perkins lately, I just can’t get enough from this affordable line!
