Tart Dresses - Summer, Ice Cream and All That Jazz




Step into Summer




"What is important in a dress is the woman wearing it." - Yves Saint Laurent



The dog days of summer are upon the land with sweltering heat, sudden rain storms in drought stricken places and a myriad of weather concoctions playing havoc with the living.  It is surprisingly refreshing to notice fashionistas from all walks of life wearing a summer dress with flats or sandals. The weather is not deterring the mission of appearing feminine and pretty this summer.  Perhaps it is the media or maybe the time has come to dress up rather than run around looking disheveled.  Here are a few summer sundress favorites by Tart.  Many are on sale.

Tart Background:  I own several pieces from Tart and absolutely adore the shape, fabrics and hues for spring and summer.    Here is information on the brand from Tart Collections website.

Yellow Mania Continues 2018

Yearly Yellow with a Happiness Vibe The happy hues of yellow in apparel remain vibrant and strong in 2018. Last year, you may recall my article on Yellow Apparel Spring 2017 published on April 5, 2017.   And, once again, I seem riveted on these naturally sunny tones that are spontaneous, signify warmth and most eagerly anticipated. Perhaps it is the time of the year with the dripping pools of water, rain, sleet, hail and yes snow that stimulates the mantra, "please let there be sun". Of course, if you are in Palm Desert, California or Scottsdale, Phoenix or a tropical climate yellow rays of sunshine are always forefront and center.  For the rest of us, we are ready to drink up a few bars of light.  And, if rays come forth for a  wee bit, we dance, run outside and have an extra kick in our step.  Yet, when the elements keep on pouring our way, it is time to bring out yellow in our apparel and accessories. While, we are perusing our closets, online stores etc., we
