No Dry Cleaning Allowed

February 18, 2019

What if I was to tell you about a ridiculously comfortable clothing line (perfect for escaping this never-ending supply of winter that we seem to be experiencing)  that doesn’t sacrifice style...and does not require dry cleaning!

Yeah!    That is exactly what we have been receiving over the last few days. And then what if I was to tell you that this easy care, high style line is also pretty darn affordable.

Practical, high-quality, great for travel and a modern lifestyle.    You can not beat this combination.

(And, yes, we just received this uber cool carry on luggage from Malene Birger that will surely get
you excited to pack up and get out of this weather for a long weekend.)

So, let me share with you some of my favorite easy to care for versatile items that pack down small, don’t wrinkle and look good, feel good.



First is a long sleeve waterfall dress that is just as good for every day as a dressy evening out.    It is a stretch poly lycra jersey that seriously flatters all body types.

Simply hand wash it in the sink, line dry and you are ready to go!

Let’s talk about packable, wrinkle-free outerwear.  This classic slim fitting trench coat is a game changer!  You will look perfectly put together but still feel like you are wrapped in a comfortable blanket.  A very stylish one, I might add.

Or how about another classic silhouette and a wardrobe workhorse.   Tailored to perfection, the Side Stripe Single Breasted Jacket works effortlessly with any bottom you've got.


And talk about comfort and ease… you will want to try this timeless, classic Elephant Pant. Cut in a luxurious stretch jersey, this pant flatters from hip to knee. The flat front pleats subtly on the leg giving you a modern, sleek line without any bulk.  And the perfect travel pant!


Now let’s head to the beach, shall we?

You can wear this A-line long dress as an off a shoulder dress or draped just slightly off the shoulder to create a flirty fun look. Use as a cover-up or add a little slip underneath for an evening out!  And it's machine washable.

This same uber fun print is shown again in a racer back flare dress.  It is cut to the knee in an easy A-shape that is flattering on all body types.   Both of these great dresses scream warmer weather and vacation!


We also have this same silhouette in both black and white sequins.   How fun is that????    Dress it up, dress it down...and best of all?   Hand wash it cold and lay it flat to dry!   So quick, so easy.  

Oh, my goddess.  



Actually, that is the name of the dress.    It has a decidedly Grecian style to it and glides effortlessly into a fitted waist with a handkerchief hem skirt.    Of course, it is made out of an easy-to-care-for fabric that is wrinkle-free and ready to go whenever you are!

And last, but not least for today is a show stopper denim long jacket.   You can never go wrong with a structured denim coat that is gently curved at the waist to flatter.    So Bold. So Love.






Let's hope that this week yields the last of the 2019 snow storms.   It has been a doozy!     Don't forget to stop by for our 2019 Spring Lafayette 148 Trunk show on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.     It too will have some amazingly warm weather options for the warmer weather ahead.   


Weather Beacon red, warmer weather is ahead.  

I know that this old phrase dates me, but I miss the old days and the KCCI weather beacon!





Our Spring trunk show will feature some classic and colorful options to add to your warm weather and travel wardrobe!!!   


 Drop by anytime or schedule a private appointment with your favorite stylist.   The choice is always yours!
