daydream: the josephine maxi-dress

Posted by Aeolidia

20130217-192231.jpgYards of peach cotton voile with shimmering gold accents and metallic braid detail make this dress simply enchanting. Outdoor pictures in this stunner will be utterly magical. Preferred Pre-Order Program- keep your eyes opened! This pre-sale is coming soon! Here's a sneak peek of the newest Maddie, too. Sweet, subtle plaid voile (in the softest pastels) and nostalgic satin ribbons (reminiscent of a May pole) make this dress a must have for your child's spring/summer wardrobe.


the birds are back in town

Image W.D. Wolf's Classic line is best known for smocking that is neither silly nor stuffy. We honestly believe that smocked clothing can be elevated using simple design principles. Simplicity, creativity and beauty inspire each of our collections and the "bird on a wire" suite is no exception. We know you loved it last time, so we brought it back in an updated color palette that screams summer. Enjoy! These were a pre-order item (now closed) and will arrive to much fanfare in May. If you didn't snag one this week, we know you'll be hustling to get yours when it arrives! Image

vintage inspiration: sisters

Posted by Aeolidia

Image Much of our inspiration comes from our own life experience, doesn't it? My mom recently came over with the "gift" of several oversized cardboard boxes. She was "cleaning house" so to speak- finally clearing her closets of the treasures stored there for over 30 years. My loot consisted of four adolescent diaries, several scrapbooks, a handful of trophies, notes from classmates, dried flowers and pictures... lots of pictures. Looking through the old photos, I am reminded again that there really are no "new" ideas in design. It's our job to take the best ideas from the past and re-shape them into something better... I'm not crazy about any of these dresses as a whole, but I LOVE certain details in each one! I'm also loving the knee high socks! And the subtly coordinating sibling sets! There's a very good chance you'll see some of these ideas come to life again at W.D. Wolf... You won't see the permed hair. Sorry, mom! XOXO, Sarah

winter whites: meet GIGI

Posted by Aeolidia

Meet Gigi: a tunic set and dress named after our very own grandmother. She was effortlessly stylish. A working woman until her seventies, Gigi (as dubbed by our eldest sister, Shawn) was a contradiction- equal parts sugar and salt, dark and light, sophisticated and understated... She always reminded us of a softer version of the fearless Katherine Hepburn. We're certain our grandmother would have loved her namesake dress with it's no-nonsense pleating & utterly feminine ruffles. We hope you love it to! The Gigi and several other new styles will be available for pre-order soon in our W.D. Wolf Daydream "winter whites" suite. Like us on facebook to get the very first chance to purchase! XOXO, Sarah
