Fierce and feline-feminine, the GB Animal-Print dress is a natural selection for your bold personality.  The crisscross cutout back mark your trend-spotted style (pun intended) in this season’s wildly popular print.

Shoe Shop:  Brown booties from GB show your down-to-earth attitude with an elevated edge. 

Spritz: A free spirit like you should have a scent to awaken your senses and your feminine prowess. The Juicy Couture Viva Noir perfume offers the best of both worlds with an enticing fragrance that will lure everyone to your charisma.

Being the shy-yet-sophisticated gal means chances are parties aren’t really your thing, and that’s okay!  Your holiday dress should be sweet and flirtatious without too much frill.  That’s why the GB Polka-Dot dress is the perfect way to show off your artistic side in a playful fit-and-flare silhouette.

Shoe Shop: Break away from your cute flats collection and step into these buckled-up beauties. We promise you won’t regret it.

Spritz: Daisy by Marc Jacobs is your ideal aroma to channel delicate allure with a mysterious medley. Like this perfume, there’s more to you than meets the eye.

Finishing Touch: Fuchsia studs by Betsey Johnson add a pop of color to this classic black and white combo, while showing off your eye for detail.

Keen observation (and retail therapy) have shaped you into a style savvy  fashionista who’s always ahead of the trend curve. Be the highlight of your party in this GB Chevron Sequin dress in must-have gold-and-black shimmer.  We love the balance of these long sleeves against this edgy-short hem.

Shoe Shop:  Mix it up with the GB Per-Fect pumps in textural harmony. 

Spritz: Modern Muse by Estée Lauder captures your contemporary confidence in a sleek-silhouette bottle.

Finishing Touch: Grab your party essentials in the Kate Landry clutch in complementary shimmer and goldtone hardware.

Reminiscent of a Grecian goddess, the GB Hi-Low Dress  combines classical draping with contemporary detail.  Whether you’re attending a holiday party with a date, or hoping to catch a certain someone’s attention, this dress speaks to your romantic sensibilities in 21st century glamour (unless Jane Austen regency gowns are more of your thing).

 Shoe Shop: Skip the gladiator sandals for some pointed-toe perfection with the Gianni Bini Tamara pumps.

Spritz: It’s love at first scent with the Miss Dior fragrance. Dreamy blends of floral and delectable fruit create an amorous aroma.

Finishing Touch:  Stash your lipgloss and other makeup touch-ups in the Kate Landry Social clutch for eye-candy shine.

Dillard’s Exclusive Interview: Robert Lee Morris

Q: What made you want to get into the jewelry business?
A: I never started off wanting to go into the jewelry business. It all just evolved magically like a Hollywood movie. I was discovered, put into the most prestigious jewelry gallery in the country, (Sculpture to Wear in the Plaza hotel) and my career just exploded without my ever intending to have a career in jewelry. I knew I was an artist, and I was just feeling my way into the art world when the jewelry I had started making became a business all by itself.

Q: Where do you draw inspiration from?
A: I draw inspiration from sacred geometry, the natural beauty of all living things. I am inspired by ancient history and futuristic visions. I am the bridge between the past and the future, between tribal and urban cultures.

Q: What are your major influences?
A: My major influences are the great artists who demonstrate that in everything they create there is a powerful signature handprint, a DNA imprint, a message from the soul that is consistent and recognizable in absolutely everything they make. Examples of these artists are Brancusi, Calder, Picasso, Arp, Warhol, and many of the great visual artists who move from one classification to another without ever losing their signature style.

Q: What is the most exciting place your jewelry has been featured?
A: The first most exciting moment in my career was when I had my brass bubble collar on the cover of Vogue in 1976. While I have had countless similar experiences of publication, that still remains the most critical in terms of my career trajectory.

Q: Which collaborations have you enjoyed the most during your career?
A: My first most enjoyable collaboration was with Calvin Klein and his design staff for his fall 1981 show. It was thrilling and fun and ended up gaining me a Coty award. The next most exciting collaboration was in 1985. I was an integral part of the Donna Karan launch, where the theme of black and gold was really the wedding of Donna and Robert, which lasted for 36 collections, and influenced the entire fashion and jewelry industries for years.

Q: What sets your designs apart from those of other lines?
A: The key features of my work, those that set it apart from all other jewelry collections in the world, are the bold sculptural forms that emphasize the sensuality and comfort of fluid shapes, undulating and sexy. My jewelry is more about the metalwork and the sculptural foundation of my look than the setting of jewels, decoration and trendy effects that have little lasting value. What sets my work apart is the fact that there is content, storytelling and the integration of my own personal philosophy of design and aesthetics as opposed to most other lines that emphasize decorative details, stones and bling.

Q: What is your favorite material to work with?
A: I favor brass and silver.

Q: What are your top styling tips?
A: Top styling tips? Use jewelry to empower yourself, to increase your confidence and create a body language of strength and simplicity.

Q: What are some of your favorite trends for fall?
A: My favorite trend for fall is the use of major necklaces. Adorning your neck is an important, creative statement above all other trends.

Q: What are the 3 must-have pieces from your collection?
A: A major statement piece from the Iconic metals collection — large hammered gold or silver metal earrings or a large iconic cuff. You also need something with movement like the pieces from the Windchime collection.

Anna & Ava: One Necklace, Three Ways to Wear It

When you invest in an eye-catching piece of jewelry, like the South Pacific necklace from Anna & Ava, you’ll want to wear it as often as possible. We’ll show you how to take this one fabulous piece and wear it three different ways.

  1. Add Interest: Turn heads when you’re keeping it casual with a striped tank and oversize tote.
  2. Make a Statement: Give the classic little black dress a striking and colorful update. Play it up with a coordinating satchel in a rich saturated tone.
  3. Splash on Color: Make a daring choice with bright white by layering on the equally vibrant necklace. A neon clutch with natural trim is right at home against this sweet look.
