What gorgeous wear! I'm in love with the Anna Sui dress... can see myself wearing it and spinning in the Swiss Alps. xoxx

MizzJ said...

Cute posts! I'm kinda on the fence with this trend, sometimes it looks great, and other times it's a bit too girl for me. Maybe it'd appeal more to me if paired with some A. Wang ripped leggings? LOL

issa said...

Elizabeth Marie said...

CC! So pretty! I am lusting over the Matthew Williamson top...

atelier said...

I am totally obsessed with roses at the moment!

Cammila said...

I think I sometimes avoid looking at Anna Sui, just because everything always makes me feel such ridiculous, consistent urgency to have and wear IMMEDIATELY. That flouncy frock is a perfect example.

coco said...

Ah I've been lusting after that Thakoon dress for a while now. I love this post, such great choices.
