Goodbye Sweet Dress

well it's time to go. I hate to leave you but I really must say goodbye sweet dress, goodbye.

By now, it's no secret ValStyle began partly as a vessel, an outlet through which we'd productively channel a severe addiction to fashion and style, a way to live vicariously through our clients and customers' purchases -- in addition to a a desire to offer quality, stylish merchandise at refereshingly affordable prices. It's also no secret that running a start-up can be the greatest challenge of one's life. The need to be everywhere at once sucks the joy out of shopping and shifts the pleasure point to the process of passing a great find from our closet to yours.

Earlier this month, we faced the bittersweet experience of shipping one of our favorite pieces to enter the closet to date: Prada's Resort 08 One Shoulder Silk Dress. A true beauty. A timeless investment that will span decades to come. The perfect inaugural ball gown. Congrats to the lucky Floridian who scored this gem at a fraction of the retail price!

Holiday is Here!

ValStyle is featured on today's Fashion Bomb (!) offering you the chance to get your holiday party dress on with savings on us.

And - just because we loved it so much - Olivia Palermo's Style Lesson on how to update your party look, from this month's Marie Claire. Enjoy!
'Buy a great oversize clutch that works for day or night. Keep double-sided tape in your bag to shorten a hem in a pinch. Mix hard and soft, masculine and feminine. Overdress rather than underdress. Forget red and green for the holiday season - too predicatable. Try platform heels, which look hot but put less stress on your arches when you're standing all night at a party. Play with hot pink. Pack baby powder to absorb oil from both your hair and face. Load up on heavy gold jewelry. Invest in a long winter coat for evenings so your bare legs aren't exposed.'
