Fashion Friday: Two Fabulous Brand Finds

Friday, May 7, 2010

Happy Friday! Last summer hubs and I had two weddings (and rehearsal dinners) to attend and I was starting to shop for my bridal shower and going away dresses. I will use ANY excuse to buy a new all these events definitely had me in serious dress buying mode! After exhausting the few options we have in town, hubs and I took a trip to Shortpump (shopping center in Richmond). Although I am not usually a fan of department stores (with the exception of Bloomingdales...which I love), I discovered two fabulous brands in Dillards! Antonio Melani and Gianni Bini! They have tons of cute items, but I really love their dresses. Here are some of the pretty things they have out right now.

Antonio Melani Lydia dress

Antonio Melani Barra dress

Gianni Bini Austin dress

Antonio Melani Shana dress

Antonio Melani Mina dress

Gianni Bini Jean dress

Antonio Melani Claire dress

What do y'all think of these brands? Have you ever bought anything from either of them?

Still looking for opinions on polos and capris here!


  1. I have never bought clothes from either designer, but I love love love the shoes I have from both of them!

  2. I haven't heard of either designer, but I love that first dress. Gorgeous!

  3. what cute dresses! I am right there with you on the any excuse.... happy friday! :)

  4. Oh, these dresses are gorgeous. I absolutely love dresses and, just like you, always seek an excuse to buy a new one.
    I like the name of your blog, so cool and sassy. I'm going to follow.

  5. I only know Gianni Bini from shoes, didn't even know they carried clothes. Love the ones here though. Good luck on your decision. I'm the same way. I always find a good excuse to find a fun dress. :)

  6. Fabulous dresses! My mother has a few of the Melani handbags and they're really pretty and very well made. :-) Have a great weekend! XOXO

  7. Beautiful choices girl!!!!!!! Love that last green one!!! So pretty! :)

  8. I have not bought, but I have tried on because they seem so irresistible! However, for my short 5'2 frame they're much too long, and I hate alterations! They are beautiful though!

  9. I've never bought any of those names, but am totally digging the Barra and Shana dresses. I think I might have to stop by Dillards and look. I have to find dresses for my rehearsal dinner and a friend's wedding in September.
    Great finds!! :)
    XOXO- Vy

  10. I love the last green dress! I've never bought anything from these designers but their dresses are super cute!
