Picture it….highschool, circa 19…none of your business!! LOL! I am heading to a formal dance and need a dress. My mom, bless her heart, drives me to Melanie Lyne and after much begging, buys me the dress of my teenage dreams. It’s dusty rose satin, with a black lace overlay. The hem is scalloped along with the little cap sleeves. Featuring a little balconnette detail at the bust, I felt beautiful and all grown up. I cherished that dress, and it is still hanging in my closet (and it still fits – mike drop).
Melanie Lyne has been a go-to resource for elegant formal gowns for me for years. Featuring one of the best selections of high-quality ready-to-wear, I’m always sure to check it out during my stops at the local Ottawa malls such as Carlingwood Shopping Centre. Case in point, while wandering around aimlessly at Carlingwood, I decided to pop into Melanie Lyne for a quick peek around. This resulted in me scoring a black satin trench coat complete with full ball skirt trimmed in ruffles. Sounds crazy, right? Well, I saw that same beautiful design with the ultra nipped-in waist waltzing down a Christian Dior runway.
I’m very proud to announce that I’ll be hosting Melanie Lyne’s Spring Fashion Launch at the Carlingwood Shopping Centre this Thursday, March 30th at 6pm – 9pm! Come join me for some great live jazz, hors d’oeuvres, wine courtesy of the Wine Rack and really beautiful fashion. The first 30 people to arrive will receive a free gift bag full of goodies too! Of note, Melanie Lyne has beautiful spring jackets, glam dresses for formal events, great basics and pretty accessories and bags to elevate any outfit.
Can’t wait to see you all!
