The Perfect Dress for YOUR Body Type

We are all built differently, and that is WONDERFUL news. The bad news is it seems most designers do not consider all of our different body types when they create clothing.

So, here’s the outfit I’m wearing this fall that will make me feel inspired every time I see it….

Where to Shop for Kids Clothing

I love observing kids and it has been so fun for me to see them develop their own personalities and their very STRONG opinions on what they do and do not want to wear. Here are some of the go-to brands that us Graye Note Ladies love for finding the perfect styles for our little ones….
