Since it is 104 degrees in Los Angeles today and we are not in the valley, we know one thing – summer is not ending anytime soon. As a result of that, we have rounded up some great Joie white dresses that are now on sale so that you can wear them for the next month at least. Since California has been suffering from a drought for the last 5 years, we have seen summer weather take over the fall months in California. I do not anticipate seeing any cashmere sweaters coming out of my closet until at least the end of November. Last year, mid October had temps in the 90’s and this year will probably be the same. As I hope for rain, I am buying myself a few more Joie white dresses on sale to keep me cool.
My 2 favorites are the Joie Laton long sleeve dress and the Joie Deleon short sleeve dress. The Joie Laton dress has a cinched in waist and gives the dress a dressy look so you can wear this dress out any night this Indian summer with a pair of Valentino Rockstud flat sandals. The Joie Deleon short sleeve dress is more of a free flow dress to be worn with sandals for a summer casual day out for brunch. Either way you cannot go wrong as both dresses are now on sale for 40% off.

Chanel Espadrilles & Nanette Lepore Dress – SUMMER OUTFITÂ – for those of you who call your Chanel Boutique daily – like me – just kidding – not like me, but you have been coveting the Chanel Espadrilles in leather – like me – you may have heard through threaded discussions or fashion threads to be more specific that the Chanel boutiques but not the department stores have gotten some secret shipments of Chanel espadrilles back in stock at the Beverly Hills and Las Vegas and New York City stores. If you call around you will find a smattering of different sizes left in the leather and mesh cap toe versions of this very popular summer shoe from Chanel.
