Reginald F. Lewis was the first African American to build a billion dollar company, TLC Beatrice. In his honor, the Reginald F. Lewis Foundation Gala Luncheon is held annually as a fundraiser for the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History and Culture. In attendance at this event was the daughter of the late Lewis, actress/author Leslie Lewis Sword, who looked fabulous in one of our favorite Searle designs!!
Leslie is pictured with her step mother, Loida Nicolas Lewis and Star Jones at the event. She is also shown escorting Professor Frank E. A. Sander, a Harvard Law professor and the Millennium Member Award honoree at the luncheon.
We love how Leslie styled her One Shoulder Striped Dress with a sleek red clutch and simple nude heels. The dress fits her like a glove and accentuates her killer physique! What do you think?
Leslie Lewis Sword wore it with elegance and you can too! Find this Searle dress here.
Nicole Miller is one of our staple lines that we carry at Searle. Her designs are always on trend and approachable for the Searle customer.

The one shoulder dress has come and gone over the years, but it is back and stronger than ever this season! Who knew that a trend that was started by Roman women in the Medieval Era would be the hottest trend today?
It could be said that the First Lady and fashion icon, Michelle Obama, started a one shoulder craze when she dazzled the nation with this stunning Jason Wu one shoulder gown during the 2009 Inaugural Ball. Since then, fashionistas and celebs alike have been flocking to this timeless silhouette, and we can certainly see why!
Women of all ages adore one shoulder silhouettes because they allow you to show off some skin while still keeping you covered. If you’re like me, you love the one shoulder because you can dance the night away without having to readjust or worry about a wardrobe malfunction! There is something very elegant about this style and it is flattering on absolutely everyone. It is no wonder that out off all of the Best Dressed from the Golden Globe Awards, People Magazine chose EIGHT one shoulder dresses:
Each of these gowns is stunning and oozes glam. Take a cue from the red carpet and incorporate the one shoulder dress into your wardrobe with one of these fab dresses from Searle. They are a must-have item this summer!
What is our favorite line we carry? Ours, of course!! Searle collection dresses have a simple elegance to them that make them incredibly easy to wear. We are now proud to introduce three new Searle dresses:
These dresses update the typical striped dress. Depth is added to the stripes through color varieties in a shape that reminds me of multi-colored ric rac. The diagonal stripes on the one shoulder dresses are simply genius. For those of you afraid to wear horizontal stripes, the diagonal stripes are as flattering as you can get! The diagonal effect instantly slims the wearer’s waist.
