Oh Eva!

Hungarian-born designer Eva Franco is hands-down one of my favorite modern designers with truly classical styles. Her style is very 1950's to me and romantic. There's just something so feminine about a full skirted dress or a fitted pencil skirt--but at the same time her designs are never boring. Eva sources nearly all her fabrics from overseas (the material for the Fifi skirt came from the south of France) and she makes sure to buy out the fabric to ensure your Eva Franco purchase is truly unique.

Longer lengths are definitely making a comeback this Spring--starting at the knee and continuing at every interval down to the floor. (We have some amazing new maxis in!) The Charity Dress oozes sex appeal in such a subtle way. Hugging every curve in just the right way, the pleated full skirt of the dress is accentuated by the pleated and draped bustier bodice and the semi-sheer stripe insets and trim keep this style from being overwhelming. The matching belt perfectly defines the waist. This is a great style for a curvy body but looks just as good on those damn mannequin-type bodies, too! We paired it with one of our crystal encrusted leather cuffs and layered 2 simple necklaces as not to distract from the dress.

This is one of my favorite bodies from Eva--it's the same cut as my Christmas Eve dress and is incredibly flattering. You wouldn't believe how many people complimented me on this style and I'm definitely thinking I might need it in this incredible cobalt and orange ikat design. Down to the matching clear and orange belt, this dress is perfect in every single way.

The perfect blend of formal and fun, this charming pencil skirt features bow detailing down center front, wide waist band, and slit at back. With fabric originating in the south of France we're definitely feeling the need for a vacay just drooling over this show-stopping skirt.
Worth every penny, Eva's incredible and unique designs have a place in nearly very closet
