Watercolor Maxi Dress

This is the first of many dresses to be posted this evening.

The print for this fabric is one that I found at a local fabric store here in Houston. It is hot off the sewing machine, being only a few days old. It is one of a kind, and you can rest assure that you will be the only person in the WORLD with this specific dress. I will not be making it with the exact color combination again. I like to make sure that my clients know, I make most things one time, and one time only. I do this, not because I don’t want multiples, but I want to make sure that women can feel confident in knowing that they will never run into someone with the same dress. (I’m sure they have bigger things to worry about)

Because it it a convertible maxi dress, you can virtually wear it over 150 different ways. The fabric itself is a Lycra style stretch knit. It does not wrinkle and breathes easily. It is perfect for last minute trips, playing around the house, or taking a walk in the park. It is flirty, and sexy, without being too revealing.

As I mentioned before, I am clearing out my inventory to make way for new clothing. Because of this, may or my pieces are being sold for a fraction of what they are worth. I hope you take advantage of the sale, because I will not be having one again any time soon.

Normally this dress would go for $120, but for now I am selling it for $65.00.

I will ship if you do not live within the Houston Area. If you do live here, I can accept, check, cash and credit. If you do not, please add in $5 for shipping. You can pay me video paypal or Chase QuickPay at AshtonRounds@gmail.com

I look forward to dressing you, and please do not hesitate to contact me for anything.

Dionisio Winery Event

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Oh… this weekend as been crazy busy, but it was truly a blessing and amazing!

 

For those of you who didn’t know (which seems like a lot… ) I did an event with Dionisio Winery this past Friday. Jimmy and his wife Clarice are the owners/winemakers for that fine establishment and I feel truly blessed to have met both of them.  (Photos to come… uploading is taking FOREVER!)

First, let me tell you about the wine.

The grapes are from California, yes… that is no secret, but the wine is made right here in Houston. The grapes are shipped next day air, the fruit that is infused comes from Texas (we love local) and carries no pesticides… (we really love Organic). There are very little preservatives added (a bottle only lasts 3 years) and there are NO artificial flavors added what so ever. Now you might be asking yourself… well what does all this mean to me?

It means you have a good clean wine that is good for your body AND wont give you a hangover!! Did I mention it tastes AMAZING!

Being a California girl, I have high standards, but this wine is seriously amazing.

Now, when Jimmy asked me to do an event with him, I didn’t ever question it.. I just said YES!

The event featured the wine… obviously.. and a trunk show by yours truly. We had quite a few local models, who walked around and mingled with the event attendees, as well as taking pictures of my Summer 2014 designs.

There are not enough works to describe how truly grateful I am… but here are my thanks:

Thank you to the following people:

  • Jimmy and Clarice for hosting the show, and for continuing to push me along the way.
  • Emeka with GnationCrown.com for helping me find last minute models and makeup
  • Bianca with Joie De Vivre Artistry for doing all the makeup on the fabulous models
  • The models who showed up, took photos, and modeled their butts off.. thank you ladies
  • Daniel with dwayne studio45foto for taking event photos
  • Jared Pierson with FullFramFX Photography for showing up, showing your love and being generally awesome
  • Matt Bednar…. my boyfriend.. you have to deal with so much.. thank you for putting up with me
  • My hula sisters. Thank you for showing up and supporting me. Your love, friendship and sisterhood means the world to me. I love you.
  • To all of the attendees, thank you for your feedback and appreciation. I have taken everything into consideration and it will help launch me forward.
  • Marie, that you for helping me find last minute models as well. I was truly freaking out.
