Exciting News:

Let's face it, spring is a refreshing time of year. We're shedding our winter layers & bean boots and transitioning into one of our favorite seasons here in Maine. And to make things even more exciting, we are SO close to the launch of our online store! As of today, we are currently prepping for launch so our blog may not be updated (or even accessible) in the coming week. Don't fret, we'll be back blogging about all our favorite brands and spring looks before you know it! Thanks in advance for your patience.

In the meantime, be sure to sign up for our online store email list. (Please note, this is a completely different email list than our sale & events emails.) We're giving you the opportunity to shop our site before the official launch, as well as score some great discounts & exclusive promos! We'll be sending all the details through email - and trust me, you don't want to miss out on this! Look for an email from us soon...

There are a few pieces in fashion that are timeless: red lipstick, the perfect trench, a great pair of black pumps and a well-fitted blazer are only a few to mention. But it goes without saying that the most recognizable wardrobe ‘staple’ a woman should invest in is the little black dress.

LBDs are pieces that instantly help a woman go from day to night and lend themselves to being a go-to outfit for numerous occasions. Hugging in all the right places and always flattering, LBDs have made the lives of women everywhere immensely easier. With so much of our lives being spent on-the-go and in high gear, who doesn’t love a little help when it comes to maneuvering their wardrobe?

Now, the effortlessness that follows LBDs has gotten easier (and a little brighter too!). Enter: the Little Blue Dress. This season, we are surrounded by color. Pops of berry pinks and soft lavender hues. So, it was only natural to bring in some of those classic LBD shapes and invest in some blue!

A little blue dress is a great way to spruce up your closet, especially if you’re like most of us and so much of your wardrobe is black (we’ll admit it, here at Bliss we can all be a little guilty of this too...). A little blue dress can be just as versatile, sexy and classic as it’s well-known sister.

Easily pair-able with black and other neutrals, blue dresses are also amazing canvases for those bright turquoise earrings or that amazing coral necklace you’ve been dying to wear to help ring in our spring season! Have a wedding, cocktail party or just a need to buy a new dress? We’ve got you covered. We have little dresses of all types coming in sapphire and azure blues from one of our favorite designers, Susana Monaco. With soft chiffon, open-backs and structured pleats, they’re every bit as lovely to try on as they are to look at. And don’t worry, we’re always stocked in black too!
