Last weekend, we completed the first of our summer collection photo shoots. We had a blast! The talented Toni Geib from BellaFotos took some amazing shots and we thought we should share the fruits of our labor.
These photo includes the following pieces from the MiUS Collection:
These lovely dresses are part of our Emerging Designer Showcase! The navy dresses are custom ordered and proudly handmade by Tidal Cool Creations. The beautiful gray dress is designed and made in Los Angeles by Amadi.

With 2013 already in full swing, many of us are resolving to make changes, so why not start with shaping up your wardrobe! From a waist cinching belts to colored denim pieces, here are some items to be sure to add to your wardrobe and that will ramp up your look in 2013!
1. Add Color – Colored jeans—from pastel to bright—are an easy, affordable, and versatile way to incorporate a big color trend into your wardrobe. The look offers a playful edge to your everyday pieces, and you can dress it up with a blazer, like Duchess Catherine and sister Pippa Middleton, or go casual like Zoe Saldana and Camila Alves. Instyle Mag editor, says “don’t be afraid to pair bright denim with a colorful top—an equally bold blouse creates a fun color-block effect.” Take a look at our selection of Made in the USA colored bottoms available at MiUS Collection:
2. Add a belt – For a simple way to define your waist when you’re wearing a voluminous skirt or flowy top, wrap a belt around your middle. Let it stand out by keeping the rest of your accessories on the subtle side (minimal jewelry). Here is actress, Lauren Graham wearing a waist cinch belt with pencil skirt combo:
3. Add Leggings – Your favorite roomy wrap sweater needs only one thing to go from couch to street—leggings! The stretchy (hence comfy 😉 ) pant creates a slender bottom half, balancing out your sweater’s bulk. Add a waist-defining belt like Rihanna for a chic, cold-proof look!
4. Add a great handbag – Investment bags are worth their hefty price tags because you’ll carry them forever. To guarantee your bag will never go out of style, look for a classic lines, add a pop of color for fun. We have some particularly eye-catching handbags available at MiUS. My personal preference are cross-body bags. In fact, they are huge for this season, a trend we luv ❤ , as it takes zero effort and scores you mega style points! Here is Jessica Alba sporting a beautiful crossbody bag:
So…those are a few pieces to get you started looking great this year! Take a look at our selection at our Made in the USA selection…Here are a few links to the items coming soon:
Jennifer Garner has a very accessible style. Her aura seems to be very natural. I chose this look from Jennifer because it seems like a perfect fit for holiday parties, going on a date, out to movies with just a little bit of bling.
I added some options as I think this outfit would be great with flats, or heels depending on the occasion.
Take a look:
So here are the details for the Made in the USA items:
