Featured Dress…Mayfair

Today in my house it is what we call “funday friday”. It’s a day we delegate not to clean, work, worry or stress. Instead, all we do is have fun. We go anywhere that sounds like fun and eat anything that sounds yummy. In the spirit of the day I have choosen Mayfair as the dress of the day. She is nothing but fun. With a flattering, dropped waist bodice and large texture filled skirt you have to smile when looking at Mayfair. The best part? She looks amazing on anyone and works for any time of year. You can find Mayfair on trunk shows and in select Anne Barge retailers. Feel free to email us at info@AnneBarge.com for more information and locations.

Two Broke Girls…

Recognize that sensational pink dress in the background? That is our very own LF217 starring in the finale of CBS’s Two Broke Girls. We were thrilled to see her make a guest appearance, and we look forward to seeing much more of her! You can find Anne Barge’s LF217 in retail stores across the country and on trunk shows. The bonus? We can make her in any color your heart desires!

The Difference a Belt Makes…

We love belts as obvious by the giant selection of gorgeous belts we have accrued over the past few seasons. Why do we love belts so much? A couple reasons…1)They are beautiful 2)They are an economical way to add beading and flair to an inexpensive dress 3)They accentuate your waistline which makes for an extremely flattering figure. By adding a belt to a dress you can completely change the whole look of a dress, and today we have a great example of a gorgeous dress worn two ways to suit many different body types. The picture below are the exact same dress with the only difference being the dress. What do you think?

The Long and Short of It…

I clearly remember when I was little that my favorite Barbie was Bride Barbie. She was amazing, and the best part was her dress. It was a full ballgown skirt with sparkles and sparkly spaghetti strap top. The best part? The skirt came off to reveal a short sparkly little number for Barbie to wear later. I loved it! How cool, two dresses in one. You can wear one to the ceremony and slip off the skirt to make your grand departure. Even better, you can slip off that dress halfway through the reception to really get down on the dance floor. Well, this season my dreams came true, and we made Chatham. She is a gorgeous full ballgown with lace bodice. The skirt then slides off to reveal a short lace dress. She is available only on trunk shows right now, but will be in stores soon. For additional pricing and details feel free to email us at info@AnneBarge.com. To see more of our new collection visit us on Facebook, Pinterest or www.AnneBarge.com.
