--A Collection by Kristina J.--
Let me introduce you to The Mandy--
the Jacki-O of the clan.
The girl that wears this dress is immaculate: perfection--not a hair out of place.
You know who she is, we all do...
She's the one wearing Ralph Lauren blazers and Penny-Loafer pumps.
The one who can emerge from a wind-storm lookin' like a million bucks.
When you're with this girl, you always get the sense
that no matter how far you reach, she'll always be just a little beyond you...
not because she's snobby, but because she walks through every situation
with an air of calm and confidence.
Like lace, she's delicate.
Like taffeta, she's tough.
One only has to peer beneath the glossy surface to the
soft heart inside to realize she's a girl you can spill your guts out to.
It's imperceptible at first glance, but once beyond that smooth surface,
the empathy in her eyes makes you realize she's
been de-constructed around the edges a time or two herself--
and the unravelled threads just add to her overall beauty.
The Mandy is equal parts old-school and modern flare.
Her elements of crafter's lace and satin ribbon are a
throwback to a long-forgotten Victorian era.
But her presentation is a modern girl's dream--
her lines are simple, her silhouette clean.
She keeps things in a well-outlined parameter,
but doesn't forsake the feminine details.
The Mandy Dress--
It's high class and sophistication.
You put it on and are taken back to the feelings you had
as a child when trying on your mother's heels.
You're reminded of the pride you felt when looking in the mirror at your new, taller image,
and instinctively you know, this is the dress that will take you from girl to lady.
