“Magic” Mother Of The Bride and Groom Dresses

There are “dresses” and there are “magic dresses“. These are styles that are often difficult to convince the customers to try on but, once she does she loses 10 pounds, gets taller and feels so amazing she has to have the dress. This is why Mother of the Brides and Mother of the Grooms have to have an open mind when shopping. The sales people in the stores that work with clients have seen everything and really know what is going to flatter all body types. Here are just a few of our “magic” dresses from Daymor, Damianou, Ideas by Barbara, Scaravelli, Sia Sia, JSS Knitwear and VM by Mori Lee.

Special Occasion Dress Tips by Blake and Company: New York’s Premier Mother of the Bride and Special Occasion Wholesale Dress Showroom

special occasion dresses nycHave you recently been invited to a wedding?  Spring and Summer weddings are upon us and guests must decide on what to where.  When selecting a special occasion dress there are a few tips to keep in mind.  First, let’s remember the cardinal rule: Never wear a white special occasion dress to a wedding unless you are the bride.

Okay, now that we got the obvious rule out of the way, some of the other tips may be a bit more subtle.  Do you think it’s a good idea to wear a black special occasion dress to a summer wedding?  It’s not.  Be bold, don’t bother playing it safe.  Black special occasion dresses can be used for a night on the town, but be bold and instead choose a bright special occasion dress to a summer wedding.

If you really want to make a hit this season, try a long, soft, floral print special occasion dress for a chic and trendy.  Blake and Company has many different special occasion dresses on display at our New York City Wholesale Special Occasion Dress Showroom.  We are the official dress showroom of Daymor Couture, Damianou, Ideas by Barbara, SIA SIA, Scaravelli, JSS Knitwear and VM by Mori Lee.

If you want your special occasion dress clients looking their best, be sure to visit Blake and Company’s New York special occasion dress and mother of the bride dress showroom.

To be certain that your clients look their best at the special occasions of this season, be sure to see what Blake and Company’s NYC wholesale dress showroom has to offer.  We invite you to visit us at 530 7th Avenue, New York, NY 10018 or give us a call at 212-869-5959.  Our wholesale dress sales representatives would love for you to come see the amazing lines of Mother of the Bride dresses that we have on display.

Special Occasion Dresses and Mother of the Bride Dresses Made in the USA: JSS Knitwear at Blake and Company NYC

Special occasion dresses are a matter of personal taste.  Mother of the bride dresses should fit a woman’s personal style.  One of the biggest names in fashion, Oscar de la Renta recently made news when he questioned First Lady Michelle Obama’s decision to wear a dress by a British designer to a state dinner in honor of Chinese President Hu Jintao.

JSS Knitwear Special Occasion Dress USABorn in the Dominican Republic, de la Renta’s gowns are made in the United States.

When it comes down to it, de la Renta might have a point since the purpose of the visit was to promote American-Chinese trade.  There are plenty of American special occasion dress designers that Mrs. Obama could have selected.  Among the top special occasion dress designers that are made in the USA is JSS Knitwear.

JSS Knitwear offers a wide selection of special occasion dresses and outfits that can be worn day into evening.  JSS Knitwear features knit separates, suits and special occasion dresses. The clothes in JSS Knitwear’s line fit great for all sizes.  JSS Knitwear offers both missy and plus sizes as well.  JSS Knitwear has a variety of colors available and the entire line is made in the USA.

Special occasion dresses are a big industry in this country and de la Renta feels that it would be a good idea for Mrs. Obama to do something to help the special occasion dress industry in America.  De la Renta said “We need to create jobs here, create jobs on Seventh Avenue, too.”

When asked about de la Renta’s comments, Mrs. Obama shrugged it off “Women, wear what you love. That’s all I can say. That’s my motto.”

The truth is that Mrs. Obama has the power to set a fashion agenda, and by wearing a special occasion dress by particular designer, she can create a market demand.  Mrs. Obama has a reputation for being one of the most stylish First Ladies ever to live in the White House.  It may be a good idea for her to wear special occasion dresses that can help the US economy.  By the way, buying good that are made in the USA is a policy initiative pushed by her husband’s administration.

To be certain that your clients look their best at the special occasions of this season, be sure to see what our dress designers have to offer.  We invite you to visit our wholesale dress New York Showroom, located at 530 7th Avenue, New York, NY 10018 or give us a call at 212-869-5959.  Our wholesale dress sales representatives would love for you to come see the amazing lines of dresses that we have on display.

Mother of the Bride Dress and Special Occasion Dress Tips NYC

Daymor NYC Mother of the Bride DressA previous Blake & Company wholesale special occasion dress blog entry listed 3 tips for the daring special occasion dress consumer.  These tips are not for amateur special occasion dress wearers with little imagination.  These tips are only to be attempted by women who are brave mother of the bride dress consumers.  Only special occasion dress fashionistas will be able to pull off these tips that are guaranteed to make you look just fabulous!

Tip #4: Breezy, ruffled special occasion dresses are usually thought of as summer wear, however if you are feeling particularly brave – try this look in the fall or winter and the results can be fantastic if you can pull it off.

Tip #5: Belts are a hot accessory this season.  You don’t have to be a fashionista to wear a belt.  But – to truly show your style – a true fashionista will spruce up a special occasion outfit with not one – but two belts!  That’s right, it sounds risky – but the payoff might just be worth it!

Tip #6: The ’70s are back!  Try a high-waisted set of flare pants to make your special occasion outfit stand out!  This look can be good for the casual, daytime look, and can also be used as a cocktail outfit for a more formal evening event.

Tip #7:  Sequins, sequins, sequins!  Sequins are definitely in!  For special occasion dress clients who want to shine (and I meant that literally) sequins are the answer!  Sequins add an edge to an otherwise boring special occasion dress.  If you are feeling extra brave – go for a draped black dress made from lace accessorized with sequins.

More tips coming soon…
