What is Flamestitch?

A flamestitch pattern in the shades of summer was introduced in two different styles of tops with the Ruby Ribbon  2018 collection. Flamestitch is a classic fashion knitwear pattern.

The Flamestitch Tunic is a swim cover-up with a life beyond the pool. This drawstring-waisted topper covers your arms, shows off your waist, while also keeping you cool! Wear it off the beach took with a Flounce Skirt or Denim Leggings.

And, the Off-the Shoulder Flamestitch is the season’s hottest silhouette! A generously-sized tunic with side vents, this top will show off your shoulders while covering your arms! Wear belted or loose, this will be both a fun pool cover-up or patio-party must-have! (This is an easy piece to put in your bag, to give your office look a festive update for a last minute dinner date.) I would pair it with white Capris for a casual look or belted with Slim Leg Ponte Pants for the office.

That lucky gal who is going on a winter trip somewhere warm!

Hey, we can’t all be her, but many women take a fun winter trip in January. Make sure she looks great in that warm climate by gifting her with a new wardrobe piece or two just perfect for temps a little warmer than home.

  • Geo Lace Tee – super cute with shorts
  • Convertible Sash Skirt – wear it as a dress or a skirt to help her pack light
  • Mesh Sleeve Tunic – my personal favorite from summer, feels like you’re wearing a tank top but your arms are covered, also comes in black
  • Kimono Top – sheer and flowy for an evening look or cute as a swimsuit cover-up

Holiday Shopping Season Begins

It’s the day after Halloween and it may feel a bit too early to start your Holiday Shopping, but I know that many of you are planners and waiting go get going. So I’m kicking off a host of posts (ha, that rhymes) to give you ideas for that hard-to-shop for woman in your life.

Your Best Friend

I’m going to start with someone that may be easy – how about a great friend. You maybe want to acknowledge your friendship with a gift, but you also may not spend too much on each other. Here are a couple ideas:

  • Drape Front Top in our amazing Kiss Red — this top flatters everyone, with a unique hemline that is longer in the back than the front. It’s sheer and flowing and she’ll love it
  • Versatile Tank – just a little something for her, available in white (shown) but also black and red tile
  • Empire Lace Tank – so pretty and something she can wear in so many ways. (This tank is designed to wear over a Ruby Ribbon cami)

I’ll be posting these holiday shopping ideas for a while. I have a few already planned, but feel free to let me know what women you are shopping for and I’ll see what I can come up with.
