There's style, and then there's style!

While there's an overloading here in Melbourne of "burnt orange" and "acid green" colourings in a lot of the clothing that's being promoted at the moment, it's nice to see that in the USA, there are so many varieties of colour to choose from that your head can spin!

Manufacturers and retailers here in Australia tend to forget or overlook the fact that style and design is very important, but also as important is the choice of fabrics on offer.   Crepe and crepey materials abound, but I've yet to meet a "curvaceous woman" who feels this fabric is kind to her. With a little forethought and imagination classic styles can look stunning - and in that, the wearer looks stunning too!

Come on Australian manufacturers and retailers - get your act together!   With that said there are a few, and only a few, but we give free rein to promoting those particular manufacturers/providers within this blog.  It's the others we're talking to.

In the meantime feast your eyes on this lovely creation from Igigi.

Millie Vintage Polka Dot Dress

Feeling bored with your work dresses? Snag this ethereal beauty with its elongating print skirt in chiffon with ruching at the waist. The colors and cut are simply sublime - wear it to work, sunday brunch, day or night - it's a versatile summer style!

Designed and made in San Francisco, USA

And for a Corporate Look:

I've just found this lovely outfit from Pennington's of Canada - unfortunately they don't deliver to Australia, but it's the style that I wanted to show you.  Smart, neat and it doesn't need any fancy prettying up.  It tells it's own story.
