What Pieces Must Our Readers Get This Month?

A feminine take on summer hoops.

Embellishments and eyelet detailing make this lightweight top perfect for evenings out.

Beautiful bucket shape. Fringe and cheetah lining add a new twist.

Summer chocolate. Lightweight with a touch of shimmer and chic tie sleeves.

Slimming Brigitte shorts are a warm-weather essential.

Beautiful shell detailing. The season’s must-have sandal.

A stunning, island-inspired statement piece.

I love the scalloped hem and breezy silhouette of our tiered dress.

How did you spend your Fourth of July?

Celebrated with friends, family, children & pets in upstate New York. Lots of fun, laughter and BBQ, plus a little fireworks show…

What new trend are you most surprised or delighted by?

Delighted by the very fashionable summer RED… worn head to toe. I love this vibrant hue. It’s not just for the winter holidays.

This or That?

To help you get to know Melly a little better, we asked her to choose between “this” or “that” everyday joys.  

Sunrise or sunset? SUNSET

Chocolate or vanilla? VANILLA
