Hi Carrie your searches are always very detailed and rich with interesting tips ... Do you believe more in large flowers prints or small flowers prints? "ordinary" people, every day, what do they prefer to wear in your opinion?...little marketing investigation, I would like to know more about the fashion market in the United States...

dapper kid said...

Yes, yes and more yes! I shall always have an undying love for floral dresses :) The shape of that Etro dress was so beautiful. The Valentino was absolutely breathtaking :) And wow, the Matthew Williamson and Roberto Cavalli are so pretty!

mode.ulation said...

I love John Galliano and Paul Smiths' take on florals the most! These are really gorgeous =]

Midlife Jobhunter said...

Okay, I'm old - like 52. But I find it most odd that these are the type of dresses I wore in college to dances and weddings. I think I still have some of them, however, I wouldn't be able to zip them. Oh, to be young and skinny, again.

Cathy Voyage said...

They're all so lovely! Flowers rock!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi there-these are simply gorgeous, I need any one of these-thanks for sharing my dear!
