Dress alert: Check out these at Kokopelli

I was at Kokopelli in the Shoppes at Northpark (previously known as Northpark Mall) and I couldn’t help but notice all the dresses in the store. More dresses than I remember seeing in a long time. Women often complain that’s difficult to find dresses, especially in the summer.

That has changed somewhat with the popularity of maxi dresses and the influx of  ’60s styles thanks to the television show “Mad Men.”  But not every woman likes a maxi or wants a belted sheath dress.

Kokopelli owner Karen Marquis has found dresses that are pefect for summer weddings, vacations, work or date night. They offer a flatering fit but they’re also forgiving  because of a little stretch in the fabric.  Even better, these dresses can be dressed up or down with a smiple change of shoes and jewelry. They’re wrinkle-free and machine washable on the gentle cycle. Kokopelli also has other styles with sleeves.

I snapped these pictures while I was at Kokopelli, and I must say these dresses look much better in person. Kokopelli also has a selection of sheer and lightweight cardigans for a little extra coverage, if you want or need. These dresses are by Komarov and are priced from about $265 to $330.
