Introducing Jude Connally Dresses

As our area begins to open up again, it’s time to consider a new dress…to go to the office, to go to the beach, for date night. I’d like to introduce you to the Jude Connally line. Their founder, Jude Connally Zimmerman, decided to create her own line because she didn’t have some important pieces in her wardrobe and she figured if she didn’t have them, a lot of other women were missing them too. She says that her goal was to make every woman feel their best.



“I want every Jude Connally woman to open her closet and feel more at ease because she knows she has relevant, super-flattering, and always appropriate options to tackle the day, no matter what’s on her agenda.” – Jude Connally Zimmerman, Founder and CEO

The Jude Connally brand is all about bringing to women greater ease – no fuss and low maintenance. Because of that, they focus on creating clothes that fit comfortably, are easy to care for, and are colorful and bold for women on the go. Jude Connally’s vision was to combine textile innovations in activewear with ready-to-wear design and style. Thus, Jude Cloth was born. This material has just enough stretch to ensure a good fit for every body shape. It doesn’t ripple on the body and feels good on the skin. Jude Cloth can be washed and never wrinkles. It is the perfect material for rich, vibrant colors and bold prints that don’t fade.

Scout & Molly’s has several Jude Connally dresses available. This t-shirt style dress (named Ella) is fun in this vibrant blue themed animal print.


Ella Dress, $178


The Bailey dress is a new style for our store. The V neck and spaghetti straps along with the fun bold floral print make this the perfect summer dress!

The sleeveless Beth dress has been our customers’ favorite style over the years. I always bring in several patterns. You will see four patterns highlighted below: hot pink paisley medallion print, black/white/taupe lucky elephant print, fun watercolor floral print, and dark peri garden gate print.

For our customers who want a little more coverage, we have a beautiful Amira style. This long dress is thin so it will be cool even during the heat of our summer.

  • The latest from Jane
I am new to the fashion world and loving it. My daughter, Betsy, and I own two Scout & Molly’s Boutiques – one in Reston Town Center and one in Ballston Quarter. Our stores are part of a franchise that allows its owners to curate their own collections. So, we are able to match the vendors and designs we bring into our stores to our customers. Thus, you will find unique items in both of our stores. In our Ballston store you will find trendy, reasonably priced clothes for a casual outing, your workday, and special occasions along with lots of fun accessories and gift ideas! Before Betsy and I started this adventure, I enjoyed a career in the private sector offering consulting services to small and medium sized companies. I also devoted a lot of my time to health, educational, cultural, and social service boards. Most recently, I served as Chairman of the Congressional Commission to Study the Potential for an American Women’s History Museum as part of the Smithsonian.

We truly believe that no one style fits all and that we have to have choices for our customers so that she can find something that makes her feel beautiful and comfortable. Our stylists can help our clients step outside their comfort zone, find new trends and approaches to their style in a comfortable environment.

Our team believes that we should always treat each person that walks through our doors like we want to be treated and we strive to do that each and every day. We take our clients seriously. They become like family, stopping to see what’s new and to catch up with their favorite stylist. We hope that our clients feel like they are shopping in their best friend’s closet.
