Whether theyre made of stiff linen or a gauzy style designed to catch a wayward summer breeze, sundresses are undoubtedly the uniform when its too hot for denim and way too hot for those Juicy sweats. And dont get us started on the footwear of the season: We worship sandals whether theyre six-inch platforms or kitty-heeled slides, and our toesies havent felt the confinement of socks since the snowstorm of 77. Luckily for us, Rene Ruiz, our favorite couturier, is making sure our warm-weather wardrobe is superchic and in our budget. Although youll pay hundreds or even thousands of dollars for one of Ruizs floor-skimming confections, at Saturdays Sundresses & Sandals trunk show, youll be able to get your hands on a frock from his debut sundress collection for just $295 each.
Once youve picked the perfect one, choose from the dozens of discounted, yet still fly, Tuccia di Capri sandals and find yourself a pair that puts the icing on your fashionable cake. The trunk show takes place from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Rene Ruiz Couture. Call 305-445-2352.
