The Classic Renaissance

As a woman of substance and tradition, you have an astute preference for the timeless, classic look and style of the church suit or jacket dress. That is with great reason.

For the magnificent mom in search of a contemporary, high-fashion misses or plus size dress that is sure to be a head turner, a lace fitted sheath is picture-perfect. Accentuating your beautiful curves in all the right places, confidently step into your Mother’s Day Brunch, Dining on the Lake, or other fascinating affair. Likewise, striking dresses – whether short, maxi, asymmetrical, form-fitting, sweeping, or flowing – are ideal.

Welcome to The Millinery Room

Wearing a hat for Mother’s Day is such a delightfully charming, time-honored tradition. An intricately designed millinery adds glamour to any ensemble. This year select a lovely hat and add a fabulous dress, pant suit, or dress suit to complement it. Gracefully promenade throughout the room at the Mother’s Day High Tea, Botanical Garden Party or distinctive soiree in a lovely, floral Jack McConnell hat or other headpiece or fascinator ranging from the understated to most extravagant.
