Fabulous Frocks

CK Bradley's Apres Dress

The Taylor Ruffle Ponte Dress from Bailey's - love it!

First of all, thanks to everyone who offered tips and suggestions on what to wear to this weekend's wedding and dinner party, as well as dining at The Greenbrier. Rather than buy yet another black dress (as much as I want to), I'm going to wear one that I already have and jazz it up with accessories. But, if I were to buy a new dress, I've seen some fabulous fashions online at CK Bradley (love her) and Bailey's that are pretty tempting.

I happened to come across Bailey's blog via Southern Gent (another fun read by a brother blogger). Visit their online store: http://www.shopbaileys.com/. The boutique is located in Annapolis, Maryland, but they also offer some fetching items online. And, I love that Bailey’s features photos of real-life folks donning their fashions. For some reason, that always appeals to me: If you have a cool Web site, featuring cool people wearing your clothes, that’s a plus in my book.

Which brings me to Ms. Camilla, over at CK Bradley. I’ve adored her clothes from afar for years. The finest preppy frocks and now she has a fun blog to accompany her retail Web site. Check it out.

I was very close to buying a dress from Bailey’s the other day, but because I’m a little gun shy about ordering dresses online because of sizing, I held off. But, I may get brave and order one. We’ll see.

In the meantime, check out the latest from these shops and see what tickles your fancy. You may just score a fabulous find!
