    Is it really almost August? Unfortunately (kidding, sorta), it's not too early to think about Labor Day outfits. But thankfully, Thread Social's resort 2011 collection has got us covered with pieces we'd gladly press fast-forward for. Beth Blake and Melissa Akey are the dynamic duo that tie the strings of Thread Social together, creating ensembles that are nostalgic and flirty, from party dresses to quirky separates. Inspired by dreams of pure summer bliss in the New England area, their collection includes a variety of fun polka dots, stripes, and patchwork patterns on beautifully polished pieces perfect for upcoming cocktail parties or a few sweet days out on the boat. Although we would like to cling to summer for as long as we can, Thread Social is making everything fall into place for Labor Day.

    Check out the entire collection of threads we want to frolic in right now.
