      Colorful Closet: Seasonless Slip Dresses

      Color Craze: Seasonless Slip Dresses - JulRe Designs LLC

      I love a good slip dress. Whenever I see a really special one, I grab it. They are so easy to wear, figure flattering and widely size inclusive. Almost every womenswear brand has at least 1 or 2 in their offerings because they have become a classic fashion staple. I think designer Carly Cushnie does them the best so when I was late to the budget-priced and hyper colorful Cushnie x Target collab this Summer, I panicked. Fortunately, I was able to snag 2 lovely slip dresses before they sold out. I never got to wear either so instead of packing them away until the next warm weather season, I thought I'd try working both of them into my appropriate-for-public Fall & Winter wardrobe plus one of my other favorites. Scroll down to see all of the looks!

      Bellini and Glazed Ginger

      Bellini and Glazed Ginger - JulRe Designs LLC

      A sultry brown hue paired with an ethereal peachy-blush tone makes this color duo a seductive match!

      Brown can represent steadfastness and simplicity while light blush colors often signify vigor and freshness.  We have paired sweet Glazed Ginger with the delicate and graceful Bellini is a yin and yang combo. perfect for classic styles, moods and even flavors.

      One of my favorite flavor pairings is ginger and peach.  The pungency of ginger actually contrasts with the full fruitiness of peach but for my palate, they're a match made in food nirvana.  I like to use this flavor mix for many recipes, but cocktails are my favorite.  I'm currently captivated by this Ginger Peach Bellini from Daily Waffle! You will understand my obsession once you try the recipe below.
