Styling Summer Dresses: Dress Them Up for a Wedding & Down for Brunch!

We have so many pretty dresses for these sunny summer days and we want you to be able to get the most mileage out of them so here are some style tips to transform them from dressy to casual in a moments notice! Don’t be afraid to wear that dress that makes you feel glamorous out to Sunday brunch or even to the farmer’s market just by adding a denim jacket, a simple metallic sandal or some cute casual sneakers, and a pair of little stud earrings.

Style the same dress for a more sophisticated event with an Obi belt, a pair of heels, and a longer earring or necklace and you’re on your way just like that! The Pasha and Venus Dresses are so perfect for easy transformations like these! The Fiona is also very friendly for dressing up or down and super lightweight for summer!  

Still feeling a little unsure about styling a dress you already have or one of the dresses in our shop? Stop by and we’ll help you mix and match an Obi belt, some jewelry, and give you a little fluff and words of encouragement to help you feel extra confident on your next outing! Life is short! Why not feel your best everywhere you go, even if it’s just to run a few errands? Of course we can dress you for a wedding or gala too, but don’t hesitate to get the most use out of these special dresses. 

And as always, send us photos of you out and about looking amazing! We love to post photos of all differently shaped & sized women wearing our pieces on social media, and hopefully you can inspire other women to wear a dress that makes her feel just as fabulous! 

See you soon!

10 Years! Wow! Thank you so much!!

We are just ramping down from celebrating 10 years of folly and we wanted to send out a HUGE thank you to all of our amazing customers! We were so overwhelmed with all the love and support it nearly brought a tear or two to our eyes. We had an unbelievable turnout last weekend and we want to thank you so much for celebrating this milestone with us. 

Sarah keeps saying it feels like it went by slowly and in a blink all at the same time! You can read more about how folly got started and how the past 10 years in Portland have treated us here in the Portland Monthly article.

We will be drawing the raffle prizes later this week and notifying the winners in the coming days so stay tuned! We’re so excited about all of these prize packages featuring products and prizes from folly and other Portland-local businesses in our neighborhood. 

Thank you again for all the support you showed us last weekend! I’ve been featuring some of the beautiful flowers you were so kind to give us in our flat lay product shots, so if you dropped off some flowers keep your eye out for a feature! We also have just received some new scarves and tunics from Johnny Was and still have plenty of fun summer dresses and tops to keep you cheery, so stop by to check these out!

See you soon!
