hemline, and sheer neckline and back. Kill the chill with this cute faux fur coat.
DUCK & DRESSING BOUTIQUE
Demure yet contemporary, this dress features a high, fold-over neckline with a plunging cut-out at the neckline. Fitted through the bodice to the hips, the cocktail dress flares out to a fluted, mid-length hemline. Add a fur-lined scarf and a dressy boot to complete the look.
SALT & PEPPER
Matte-finished sequins catch and reflect light on a slinky cocktail dress crafted with an ultra-figure-flattering wrapped waist that drapes into a sleek asymmetrical hem. Accessorize with a statement necklace and glittery, strappy heels.
RON ALEXANDER CLOTHIERS

MOODY BLUES BOUTIQUE

THE TOGGERY Looking for the perfect party dress? This dress in holiday green is perfectly suited for Cherish, it features a Frenchie silhoutte with a flounce at the hem. The look is pulled together with this beautiful fur shawl. John Reed looks dashing in a black mock pima cotton turtleneck and sport coat with leather trim.
People will stare, so it’s time to make it worth while. There is no doubt that a red gown creates that magnificent glamour of old Hollywood beauty with a sweet bateau sheer illusion neckline. Melding modest coverage and plenty of style, the neckline and cap sleeves are embellished with a lace appliqué and small amounts of sequins to give it a natural sparkle.
