- Gone Retro
Hey Dolls! Our owner Amanda recently sat on the Make 2019 The Year Of You panel and discussed her belief that style is such an important part of self-care! You can read her thoughts on that here! We wanted to walk you through a few simple ways to create a closet that is full of looks that will empower and motivate you!!
Ok, Dolls, it’s finally time to reveal Christmas In The City – our 2018 Winter Fashion Shoot! For this shoot, our backdrop was the absolutely stunning downtown Louisville. We wanted a setting that was as classy, bold and glamourous as the clothes themselves, and we couldn’t have dreamed up more perfect locations than The Old Seelbach and the 21C Museum Hotel. And Y’all, these looks are seriously winter-weather tested and approved. The day of the shoot is was 32 degrees!! And look at those smiles…when the clothes are this gorgeous, you forget all about the weather.
From Christmas to New Year’s Eve, these looks will make sure you look gorg and glam! Here are a few of our favorite styles of the season. You shop the looks here!

If you know Dress & Dwell, you know we love a fashion shoot! A few weeks ago, our owner Amanda went to North Carolina on a trip that combined work and family time. (You can get all of the deets and see all of the pics from her trip here!) While she was there she was able to take some time out to fit in our Winter Fashion Shoot! Y’all, it’s definitely one of our favorites that we’ve ever done…here’s why!
1.The setting was beyond! It was shot at the Duke Mansion in Charlotte. It is absolutely just as stunning and major as it sounds! 2. The models!!!

If you ever wanted to spice up your denim or basic outfit pieces, consider embroidery. This trend is sweeping the nation... and our store. It's a great nod to the 70's and we love it.
Try embroidered shirts:
If you're new to to the embroidery game, starting out with this simple tank could be a good jumping off point. This subtle side embroidery is just enough to make you go, "Oh, I like that, MORE PLEASE!" The embroidered sides on this simple tank make it pairable with jeans, short, and skirts. We love it.
Not a shirt gal? Try an embroidered dress:
We're in love! We're in love, and we don't care who knows it! If you feel like you've got a pretty good handle on this whole embroidery trend, this is the dress for you. It's flattering, trendy, and perfect for summer.
Take it one step further with a romper:
Change it up a little bit with an embroidered romper. Mix these trends to create something totally new!
You can always find more embroidery online at dressanddwell.com or in our store! Keep updated by following us on all our social media too! We want to see how YOU rock these trends.
Until next time,
Lovely, lovely lace. It just breathes freshness into the world, doesn't it? Lace is one of those things, like denim, that is always in style. Check out what's new at Dress & Dwell that will make you feel so fancy.
Can we just say we're in love with this color?! It's a soft periwinkle blue and an understated beauty.
Summer Lace Romper- Coral ($46)
A lace romper! We are so in love. This romper is so comfortable and totally unexpected. It's perfect for date night or drinks with friends.
We adore this light-weight summer top. We're so in love with the dainty lace details. It's perfect for any strong woman looking to impress.
That's all for now. Remember to check out our website and follow us on social media for updates on arrivals and sales!

If there is one fabric that anyone can pull off at any time of the year, it's denim. This fabric has withheld the test of time! Every season, a new varient of this fabric is released or sometimes the same thing stays in style for years. In the world of denim, these are what's trendy now:
Vests are here, and we are SO ready for them! Wearing a denim vest with some jeans is a much better way to wear denim on denim than Britney and Justin wore it circa 2001. Sorry but not sorry, Britney and Justin. That was a bad choice and you all know it. Anyway, this updated combo is defintely on trend and leaves room to add a statement necklace or other jewlery piece.
Let's see if we can spot the trends on this top.
1. Denim (obviously, amazing)
2. Off the shoulder (OMG! Our favorite)
3. Tassels/ Fringe (LOVE!!)
So basically what we're saying is, this top is great and a staple piece for your wardrobe. It checks off THREE style boxes! We're obsessed.
All we can say about these shorts are- YES. Yes to denim, yes to the fit, yes to the ruffles. We love them so much we would wear them everyday if we could.
Check us out in store or online for updates on the denim trend. We'll also keep you updated on our social media, so follow us on there too!

You've probably noticed them, they've crossed state borders, they're spreading... tassels. That's right. Summer's newest fashion trend has made it into Dress & Dwell and we're pretty happy about it.
Stop thinking this accessory is only for grandma curtains and graduation caps. These fun little pops of color add a touch youthfulness. Check out what's made it into the store that could also make it into your summer wardrobe.
Tassles and off the shoulder? How much better could this get! This top is so cute for a casual day with friends or family. The black tassels add a pinch of playfulness while still keeping it sophisticated. It's perfect in our book.
Another example of playful but sophisticated tassel-ing. This top brings out a good mix of boho-girly style. We could see wearing this top to somewhere light and breezy. Maybe use it as an excuse for a beach trip?
The best news about tassels are that you can add them to anything with accessories. Check it out: tassel heaven.
Tassels on Bags
Tassels on Earrrings
Find these and more tassels online and in the store!

I don't know about you guys, but we've noticed a sweet trend. Somehow pastels have bridged the gap between spring and summer trends. That's right, pastels are in for summer 2017. Another trend is minimalism. We know, we know, de-cessorizing is hard. But as they say, beauty is pain, emotional pain too. It's not all bad though! Here are some ideas to make your wardrobe as sweet as ice cream this summer.
Okay, how cute is this mint top? Pairing it with a neutral jean is the perfect way to achieve maximum minimalism .
This color is a-maz-ing. Why haven't we swooned over this sky blue before? This dress also flaunts a light and breezy fabric that is ideal for a hot and sticky day. You know by now how much we love our off the shoulder looks. One word to sum up this dress? Everything.
Ruffle Tshirt Dress- Peach ($34)
Did somebody say peach ice cream? Yum! Feel absolutely peachy keen in this tshirt dress. It is super comfortable for any body shape.
Remember to keep cool this summer!
Until next time,
It's wedding season! June and July are notoriously packed with what can seem like an endless stream of weddings. If you need some help or just some inspiration to get through the month of July, look no further. Here are three looks we love for weddings.
Lace is in this wedding season! This super comfortable dress makes the perfect feminine statement... it's also good to twirl around in. We can confirm feeling like a princess for a night can never disappoint. Fun jewlery and nude shoes complete the look.
Beaded Teardrop Necklace ($18)
The Betty Heel ($30.95)
Aren't you obsessed with this off the shoulder look? One of our favorite fashion rules is less is more. Go for a classic look with a punch of summer color. Accessories are defintely optional for this look. Like our girl Coco said,
Okay, okay, we admit we're obsessed with off the shoulder tops and dresses. But come on! Look how cute. This dress is good for a chillier summer night because it's light weight, but has more coverage. Toss on some simple flats or heels and BAM, you're fabulous.
That's all for now. Go rock that dancefloor!
Until next time,
