Raquel Allegra’s Ultimate Everyday Dress

There isn’t a single piece of Raquel Allegra in my closet that I don’t have in heavy rotation. She is the master of easy, comfortable and low maintenance fabrics. This new shirt dress is insanely soft and wearable and heading straight to the top of the stack of my go-to summer day dresses.

Memorial Day Shred

Goldsign Shred Jeans

I dipped my toe in the water with a little knee shredding on my denim last season and we’ve all noticed that designers have taken the look a lot further this season. I love contrasting super casual worn in jeans with a crisp white top or a silk blouse. For a comfortable higher waisted, relaxed hip shredded jean, try GoldSign’s Stevie. Just arrived at DIANI!

Skirting – Summer Style Inspo

Summer Trends

As the temperatures hit triple digits last week, it was the prompt I needed to start pulling my skirts to the front of the closet. Skirts aren’t always the easiest throw on since they need a complimentary partner to go up top. That’s when I turn to Pinterest for some outfit inspo. Here are some sassy girls who’ve pulled off a skirt ensemble perfectly. To see more of what inspires me, follow me on Pinterest here.

DIANI and The Rebrand

DIANI Branding

I’m like a giddy school girl these days because, Gail, my close childhood friend from England and I have been working on another project together. Gail did such an amazing job designing our wedding invitations that I couldn’t wait to collaborate with her again on a rebrand of DIANI. Over 13 years ago, Gail worked her magic creating the initial branding which included the signature DIANI Beach picture that my father took of my sister and I strolling down it’s white sands. With that still a big element, Gail came up with idea to incorporate some similar imagery from Santa Barbara, where the business was launched. So, keeping it in the family, I assigned my brilliant husband to take the scenes that would be front and center on our Returns Policy card for web and one of our Thank You cards. Gail is the master of cool fonts, layouts and color and she struck that sweet balance of updating a brand whilst honoring it’s origin. Here are some of the elements that you’ll find at our boutiques and if you shop online with us at dianiboutique.com. Gail, thank you for your huge talent and friendship.

Check out Gail’s print design website here where she has curated some of her best selling wall art prints and printed cushions. And, they’re all for sale!
