Dear Fashion Friends:

This Casual Summer Party Dress, as it appears listed on the website, is a beautiful addition to the AC fashion collection (see photos below). Its spaghetti straps and ruffles make for enchanting attributes to the overall design. AC offers this exquisite piece of attire in a variety of beautiful colors, including black, burgundy, green, and light pink.

In terms of accessories, I would recommend this enchanting pair of Flower Stud Several Peach Blossoms Earrings and Heart Lock Pendant, which are available on the website (see photos below). Both items would go beautifully with this dress.

There is something else about this photoshoot that I love. If you look at the photo found below, you will see in the background a vintage Vogue photo taken by Walde Huth.

The photo brought happy memories of my vacations in Paris back in the 1980s. My family and I went to France after spending time in Greece with family and friends. We got up early morning to take a flight from Athens to Brussels, Belgium. We spent the day in Brussels to get some rest before getting up in the morning to take a train to Paris. When we got into Paris, I was impressed by the beautiful boulevards and restaurants. At the Hotel Castile, my family and I enjoyed a continental breakfast of croissants and hard rolls, served with butter and marmalade. And, of course, with coffee or tea. Afterward, we visited the Eiffel Tower and the Notre Dame Cathedral. Other times, we frequented the bookstores and the museums. It was in Paris that I fell in love with the Impressionist paintings of Claude Monet and Auguste Renoir.

"Paris," as Audrey Hepburn once noted, "is always a good idea” (Quoted in

I hope your visit to was an enchanting one.
