A-Line Waist

These dresses are made to fit your waist and then gradually flare out towards the hem. A-line dresses are excellent for minimizing thighs, hips, and midsections while pulling the eyes to your bust. This style of dress is a great fit for almost any body type. There's a reason why so many brides settle on A-Line dresses for their big day! With plenty of varieties, this is a kind of dress that you can wear again and again.

Empire Waist

Like the A-Line style, empire dresses are made to fit through your bust. Rather than creating a distinctly angular shape like the A-Line, the Empire style flows from the bust down. This is another kind of dress that fits many body types. From curvy to apple body shapes, the Empire draws focus to your bust and minimizes everything else. For lovely ladies on the shorter side, this style defines your silhouette, especially if you choose a maxi length dress.

Drop Waist

A throwback to the roaring 20's style flapper dresses, Drop Waist dresses look best on lean, athletic bodies that don't have too many curves in the hip area. The key to pulling off a Drop Waist style dress is to ensure that it's not hugging you. This dress is best worn when it is able to hang freely on your body.

Once you know the kind of waist that fits your body type, it's time to find your shape. A few of our most popular dress shapes include:

Fit & Flare Dresses in Apex

Any clothing store for women in Apex, NC, worth its salt, will have plenty of fit & flare dresses for you to try. This common-shaped dress is one of the most popular on the market, mainly because they look great on every woman, regardless of age or shape. A timeless choice, fit & flare dresses fit through the bodice and flare out just below your hip. This helps develop a balanced, slimming silhouette for most women. If you want to accentuate your best assets and hide everything else, ask our experienced fashionistas to show you some the most popular fit & flare dresses at Copper Penny.
Time to start doing your happy dance! Fit & flare dresses have very balanced proportions, making them a true winner for every body type. Women with athletic builds love this dress for the extra curves. Women with apple-shaped bodies love how fit & flare dresses define their waistlines.

Shift Dresses in Apex

Shift dresses are typically rectangular in shape and tend to be comfy and forgiving since they aren't fitted. Also called a column dress, the shift dress is a great choice for polished professionals needing a conservative, fashionable outfit for work.
These dresses look fabulous on women with athletic, lean shapes and women with an apple-like figure. This kind of dress doesn't work well with a belt, so ladies with an hourglass figure may not be able to show off their curves in a shift. Try pairing this dress with a nice pair of heels for a beautiful new look!

Wrap Dresses in Apex

Wrap dresses are one of the most popular styles on the market, because they give ladies of most shapes and sizes a flattering, fashionable dress option.
If you have an hourglass, apple, or generally curvy body shape, you're going to love wrap dresses. This style of dress offers a natural waist while placing emphasis on your bust.

How to Find the Right Fit for Your Women's Top

When choosing a women's top for your outfit, you have to consider how comfortable, confident, and beautiful you will feel. The best way to feel your best in an outfit is to make sure it fits correctly. To get started, you'll want to take your measurements. For most women's tops, the best areas to focus on are your hips, waist, and chest.

  • Hip Measurements: Measuring your hips is fairly easy. Take your measuring tape and use it to wrap around the widest area of your hips.
  • Waist Measurements: Take your measuring tape and place it at the very top of your hip bone. Wrap it all the way around your body. Try to keep your measuring tape in line with your belly button. For the most accurate measurements, stand up straight and breathe normally.
  • Chest Measurements: For an accurate chest measurement, take the end of your measuring tape and place it on the fullest area of your bust. From there, wrap the tape around your body, under your armpits, and around the blades of your shoulders. Then, wrap the tape tightly from the back of your body to the front, where you started.

Apex High School wins North Carolina 4A softball state championship over Hickory Ridge

The Apex Cougars wouldn’t be denied.

Winning back-to-back games en route to an NCHSAA 4A state championship on Saturday wasn’t easy, but head coach Adam Renzi knows his group of girls, and he knows they are a resilient bunch.

“We’ve been gritty all year,” Renzi said after Apex rallied, twice, to upset Hickory Ridge at Duke University. “We don’t have a lot of superstars but just play really tough. And so today we just said, ‘Don’t let us win one.’”

Apex was shut out in Game 1, 3-0, on Friday night as Hickory Ridge got a brilliant performance from Elon-bound pitcher Anna Dew. To win the title, Apex had to win the final two games of the best-of-3 series Saturday.

In Game 2, the Cougars found themselves in a 4-0 hole, and came back. That was their “one,” thanks to a two-run walk-off homer from Kaleigh Ayscue.

From there, Renzi said, it was all about using the energy off the win.

“We managed to get that one,” Renzi said. “That first one was really hard. It was really hot. I thought we were able to really build off that.”

In Game 3, the Cougars got behind again, and trailed 5-2 in the seventh inning, three outs from disaster. But, aided by three Hickory Ridge errors, Apex scored six runs to win 8-5, securing its first softball state title.

“That’s been the story all year,” Renzi said. “We are just gritty and find ways to manufacture runs.”

Renzi said a few years ago, winning double digit games at Apex was a big deal. Now, the Cougars will get fitted for rings.

“I’ve been around softball for so long, travel ball, college and high school,” Renzi said. “The resiliency of the female athlete (is special). They just do not surrender. What you saw today is why I’m involved in this game. Whether we win or lose is irrelevant because of the way they fought back.”

Hickory Ridge head coach Justin Davies said all his team could do is look ahead.

“We don’t have any choice but to move forward,” Davies said. “We try to tell the girls to not worry about the next step and the next pitch, but this hurts. We had four errors (in Game 3) and a bunch of errors in (Game 2) and we just didn’t do the job.”

Longtime Apex development Veridea to pick up progress after lengthy delay

APEX, N.C. (WTVD) -- Nestled in between U.S. Highway 1 and Interstate 540 and along NC-55, the Veridea development project will soon take shape and form in Apex.

The project was originally in the hands of another developer but was held up in court for years.

However, developer RXR purchased the land in a deal for $91 million.

"This is exciting," said Apex mayor Jacques Gilbert. "Here's an opportunity for Apex. If we can just get some momentum and move this thing forward we can do some incredible things."

The announcement comes as the town celebrates its 150-year anniversary Tuesday.

News of RXR taking control of the project brings about much-needed progress after the previous developer was not able to pull it off.

"What I do understand is that we have some people who are serious at the table. And they're working with staff right now to really create this dynamic plan that will benefit our growth and opportunities," said Gilbert.

Within the conceptual renderings are plans for five separate villages for Veridea with space for life sciences research, zoning for up to 8,000 residential units, and 3.5 million square feet for retail, hospitality, and civic use.

"We know that change is always about emotion for our town and as long as it's good change, we'll celebrate it," said Gilbert.

One business owner, who did not want to be identified for fear of how his comments will affect future business, said, "The growth is happening too fast."

However, Amy Bishop, who owns Sawdust & Clay Collaborative, said, "What makes the small-town feel is really that you have locally owned businesses."

Many residents said the development will change the look and feel of the town.

"You know, it's not a strip mall. It's not even a big, commercial mall," added Bishop. "It's a place where there's sole proprietors, small businesses being owned by people who live in the community. So I think it keeps its small-town vibe from that."

The project will also make way for a new elementary school and an additional campus for Wake Technical Community College.

There's no word yet on when the project will break ground.

$3B ‘superstar region’ project planned for Apex after years-long delay

After years of legal wrangling and shelved plans, a mixed-use project on a massive tract of land in Apex is now in new hands and moving forward.

The long-awaited Veridea development is starting to take shape after New York developer RXR recently purchased multiple parcels, roughly 1,100 acres in total, sandwiched between U.S. Highway 1 and N.C. 540, along N.C. 55, according to Wake County deed records.

The total price tag: $91 million.

The project has been in the works since the property’s previous owner, Hudson Realty Capital, began assembling land 16 years ago. However, it hit legal roadblocks and never got off the ground.

About 17 months ago, RXR began scouting the site and says the deal is part of its national push into what it calls “superstar regions,” mainly outlying suburban areas that support housing, logistics and life sciences. Apex is about 20 minutes from RTP and neighbors Cary and Morrisville. The land sale was first reported by the Triangle Business Journal.

“The Veridea project is consistent with our strategy,” said Scott Rechler, chairman and CEO of RXR, in a statement.

RXR plans to build on Hudson Capital’s original vision — with over 1,000 multifamily units to be built by RXR and 1,100 single-family houses and townhomes to be developed by Lennar Corp — as part of the project’s first phase. Plans also include over 750,000 square feet for life sciences research, and 21 acres for the construction of a new elementary school.

RXR is also partnering with Wake Technical Community College to construct a new 340,000-square-foot campus on 34 acres that will include space for a new workforce development center.

Altogether, RXR, Lennar and Wake Tech expect to invest “up to $3 billion” on the site.

“We’re going to create a community of live-work-play,“ Joseph Graziose Sr., RXR’s executive vice president for residential development and construction, told The N&O. “We really pride ourselves in coming into regions and municipalities, and working together to ensure that we’re both aligned and doing good.”

RXR indicated the project will offer housing at an “affordable price point,” but Graziose declined to give exact numbers. “What I could say is, being outside the boundary of the city, it will be much more affordable than living in downtown Raleigh and North Hills.”

RXR plans to break ground with the initial infrastructure and roadway system early next year. The first residents for multifamily units should be able to move in by late 2025, he said.

Amenities for phase one will include walkable green trails, dog parks and bicycle paths. Eventually, four softball fields, six tennis courts and a 22,500-square-foot community center will be added. The zoning of the site allows for the development of up to 8,000 residential units, 12 million square feet of commercial space, including life sciences, industrial, and warehouse, and 3.5 million square feet of retail, hospitality, and civic uses.

Apex Mayor Jacques K. Gilbert called the project a “golden opportunity” for Apex.

“While there are many more steps to take on this journey, I’m truly impressed with the conceptual plans presented by RXR’s team, providing solutions to move us forward,” he said in a statement.

As Apex’s population swells to over 62,000, demand for more housing remains at an all-time high. The town estimates that by 2030, there could be more than 120,000 people living in Apex. A local affordable housing developer, DHIC, recently broke ground on Broadstone Walk, a 164-unit affordable housing complex on a 14-acre parcel along South Hughes Street in Apex.

A franchise restaurant in the Triangle is getting an overhaul from a local team.

The Glory Days Grill location in Apex has closed – but the spot will soon reopen as a new concept. Mike Montgomery, owner of the Abbey Road Tavern brand, has purchased the business with plans to turn it into The Dugout Tavern & Grill.

The restaurant is located at 1413 Kelly Road in the Publix Pointe shopping center. A trio of local franchisees opened the spot as Glory Days Grill in 2017. The sports bar and grill brand was started in Virginia and now has 39 locations, according to its website.

With the closing of the Apex location, North Carolina has no Glory Days Grill restaurants.

The new concept taking its place will have a sports focus, Montgomery said. The menu will feature American fare, including burgers, wraps, pizza, steak, salads and salmon. Items will range from about $8 to $20.

The Dugout Tavern & Grill’s bar will serve cocktails, wine and beer. The restaurant measures about 5,500 square feet and will have seating for 200 inside and another 60 seats outside in a covered patio area.

The space will feature 39 TVs with “every sports package available,” Montgomery said. The décor will be focused on sports as well, with memorabilia from various sports and local teams throughout. The restaurant will also have pool tables, darts and a shuffleboard table.

Montgomery declined to disclose the purchase price.

He bought the business from operators Christopher Holmes, his father Doug Holmes and uncle Warren Holmes. Prior to its closure, the restaurant had been struggling with internal management, Montgomery said.

Glory Days Grill did not appear to announce the closure in any social media posts, but the former restaurant’s Facebook page now lists it as permanently closed. The page commented back to a customer on one of its posts saying, “We have been fortunate to have good people working here, just not enough to be open the seven days a week we were designed for.”

Montgomery is hoping to open The Dugout Tavern & Grill the week of Aug. 7. He is in the process of cleaning all the kitchen equipment and renovating the space.

The restaurant will be open until midnight seven days a week, 365 days a year, he said, and will employ 40 to 50 people.

Montgomery owns two other restaurants, both under his Abbey Road Tavern brand – one in Apex at 1700 Center St. and one in Cary at 1195 W. Chatham St. The brand has a music and rock ‘n’ roll focus.

Montgomery has owned several other restaurants in the past and is looking to expand his business with more restaurants in the future.
