Best DRESSed

August 12, 2006

Lately, I’ve been substituting my signature denim style for dresses. Granted, this summer is all about the dress but it sure takes alot for me to bare my kneecaps (I have a sort of aversion to knees, for whatever reason). Anywho, take a look at some of the dresses that have my wishlist.


The Tocca Laura Manor Dress, with its dark green color and feather brooch has been a favorite of mine ever since it came out. The empire style waist and faintly bubble hem are obviously tailored straight to this season’s “in” style. However, this wouldn’t be a mindless investment of $415.00, I can honestly see myself wearing this next summer – it’s a sort of timeless dress, as long as you’re wearing the right shoes.


Time for work? No problem. Check out this Prince of Wales Vest Dress by Nanette Lepore. A new twist on an old favorite – a ruffled blouse paired with the low cut pinstriped jumper, this dress is bound to get more than a few double takes.


Embrace your feminine self with this Silk Jacquard Dress by Milly. A beautiful new age dress with old time appeal, this is at the top of my wish list for fall.


Get back to school with this cashmere sweater dress by Alice & Olivia. Oh and in case you love the shoes as much as I do, they’re Tara Subkoff for Easy spirit.


After looking at all those fall dresses you’re probably wallowing in self pity. No need to worry, summer is still here. To that effect, I’ve included this summer dress by Tricia Fix. Yes, it’s the same one as Jessica Simpson wore and no, it isn’t on sale yet. But that shouldn’t matter – appreciate the dress for what it is: a long ethnic inspired sundress.

adore you.
