All the excitement surrounding Suzanne Lay's Resortwear Collection

What's so exciting about Suzanne Lay's Resortwear Collection?  Well, we've got 5 of the highlights below -

1. The Criss-Cross Tank

Here at parker+paige, we believe that an open back is always sexy. Cue Suzanne Lay's Criss-Cross Tank for Spring. 

The sleeveless, scoop neck tank first received attention in the Summer of 2011 in black when Post-Dispatch Fashion Editor, Debra Bass, took notice of an Etsy sale Lay did to raise money for Joplin, MO after a sweep of tornadoes shocked the tiny little town. 

Now, set for the sunny hues of Spring, it appears again in Lay's Resortwear Collection in a soft, yellow gold.

2. Her floral print

The September Issue of Harper's Bazaar declared,
"Don't discard your floral fantasies just yet, this season the trend continues with a high-octane dose of flower power."   
In Marie Claire's Spring 2012 Trend Alert they echoed the sentiment,

"Everything's coming up roses (and daffodils, and orchids, and daisies) for Spring 2012 — head to toe floral prints are all over the runways."

Take it from the big dawgs, florals are in for Spring, and Lay has chosen a goregous print full of palm tree greens, sunny yellows, and rasberry reds.

She's saved it for an asymmetrical cut, one-shoulder blouse with tie closure, and a halter top maxi, featuring a cross-over skirt with a sexy, thigh-high side slit.

But for a limited time only, you can special order it from parker+paige in her v-neck maxi dress, and her one-shoulder dress!

3. The Halter Maxi

Our Editors' favorite was the standout piece she closed her S/S2012 Runway Show with at St. Charles Fashion Week.

The halter maxi dress in floral was paired with feather earrings, a thick brown belt buckled at the waist, and closed-toe platform wedges. 

Proving that the Taylor Swift-inspired collection of country trailers & vintage cowboy boots can quickly be transformed to city-chic by just adding a few, trendy accessories.

4. Cohesive Separates

Leave it to Suzanne Lay to create completely cohesive separates that photograph like a slinky, form-fitting dress, and then quickly pull apart to give extra options in your closet for mixing & matching when you feel spontaneous.

It's carefully done by pairing a draped tank with a draped front skirt both cut from Veneccia knit in a brillant magenta that will have you salivating for Spring.

5. Her Pale Pink

For her last shade of Spring, Lay chose an Amaranth / Carnation / Lavender pink in ITY Knit - a stretch knit jersey, that's super comfy on!

It's sturdy, durable materials make each piece machine washable, yet it's great for the fitted pieces in her Resortwear Collection because it's very form-flattering as well.

Shown at Streetscape: St. Charles FW in her asymmetrical tie top, pleated pant, and draped v-neck maxi dress, it's also available on our UsTrendy store in the halter v-neck maxi dress, the assymetrical one shoulder dress, draped jacket, 3-quarter length sleeve dress, asymmetrical draped one sleeve tie top, shirred legging, and tulip cross-over pant.

6 pieces from her Resortwear Collection are already available at our UsTrendy store (, and the last 9 will be appearing over the next few days.  So check back early & check back often, because this is one collection you do not want to miss!
