Amped Up Dresses

Updated: Mar 29



It's time to add some frivolity to your life, with bulb-shaped skirts, and the continuation of a Victorian pouf-sleeve.

This is the best way to ease out of quarantine-dressing. Non-confining, but dressed up.

Comfortable but not sloppy.

Chic and fluid. It's time to pump up the volume. With our re-entrance back into society, it's time to announce ourselves with color and take up space with extra amplification-wear.

From quarantine tears to poplin-dress tiers, these super feminine and playful dresses will also make the ease back into our form-fitting clothes all the easier. Quarantine 15 is real.

The floor-length frocks and mini frills are reminiscent of fairytales and who doesn't deserve a happily ever after, after the year we had? Give it a twirl.
