Diego R. Wyatt said...

These pieces are white hot CC! The only thing I hate about white is that you have to watch where you sit, who you hug and where you stand as to not get any stains. The Alice & Olivia full-skirted tank dress is super adorable. I love the snowstorm jeans, as well. The Marchesa dress is stunning as is Pucci look.

Ela said...

Congratulations, Clare!!!
Oh I'm so in love with that Reem Acra dress (or is that a pantsuit?) it flows so beautifully.
Really love those back zips on those amazing white jeans!
Lovely post, CC!
xx Ela

HiFashion said...

Ohh, I love white so much! I think half my wardrobe is just white! Nothing makes you feel more beautiful than an all-white ensemble. xx Leia

Dani @ Weddings Fresh said...

give me that reem acra resort dress and i'll be happy :)
great finds, lady!

Allison said...

I love the way that white looks against tanned skin. Or really any skin tone! It's such a perfect summery color :)
I love that Alice & Olive tank dress, and the Seven straight leg jeans - too cute for words (and of course a pair of J Brand white skinnies would be amazing too ;)
Enjoy your day, dear!

Nicky said...

White is the best colour in the summer especially when you have a tan and a pop of colour :)
I saw the most gorgeous white floaty dress at Topshop recently should have snagged it but it wasn't on sale and I'm 'trying' to stick to the whole recessionista thing ;).
I love the jeans, exciting :D

The white shade is perfect for summer. I love it.

I wore white jeans last weekend and I forgot to bring my Tide pen with me. I came home with white paints with spots, stains and spills. I never spill on regular jeans.

Tiffany said...

I just bought a pair of white jeans and need to get them hemmed cuz I'm dying to wear them!

FabBlab said...

White IS hot.
I had a pair of white jeans from Scullers of all places till 2 months back. Then, I spilled something on them. Can we say klutz?
Items from this white hot list I'm coveting:
Matt and Nat Warhol bag
Liz Riz hobo
Victoria's Secret retro top and skirted bottom (could have something to do with my affinity with Adrianna Lima. It's plausible)
Ooh, and the Victoria's Secret bandeau bikini.
Versace,Herve Leger,Marchesa and Gucci Resort collection pieces.
OOh and the BCBG MaxAzria one!
Plus, the Bagley Mischka Resort dress.
Huh. Got in 98% of them in, didn't I?
I should've been rich -.-

OceanDreams said...

White is always a nice and basic, yet classy color to wear. My only concern is when the monthly starts - I'm always scared to wear white because of it! Love the skinny jeans though. ;)

Elizabeth Marie said...

The Alice and Olivia tank dress is so perfect! I love white. And that Japanese Vogue...I need to find it!

XOXO

valerie_p said...

K8 said...

I need more white pieces that don't just comprise of a white T-shirt. In fact, I need to go summer shopping. :D

WendyB said...

I'm normally not a big fan of white (I feel like I can't keep it from going dingy) but I just got a little white dress. My first, I think! You'll see photos soon if the weather cooperates.

Cherie Cherie said...

white white white

jen laceda said...

White is purely intense. Or is it intensely pure? Gorgeous, darling! White always makes me think of summer...in the Hamptons, in Greece, in South of Spain...

love and youth said...

i like the white ripped jeans and the bikini with the turquoise details x

Roxy said...

I am obsessed with the white alice and olivia tank dress you posted... but I would LOVE to win these jeans!

lisa said...

White is a perennial classic for the summer, especially little white sun dresses!

melissa kaye said...

White is hot! :)
I haven't owned a pair of white jeans since I was in middle school. Yikes..long time ago. Anyway, these jeans are really cute.

Virtuous Impatience said...

White jeans are my FAVORITE. They're so versatile and always look fresh! J Brand has the best fit, so white J Brands sound like a little bit of heaven!

Fabulous Finds Gal said...

Wow.. amazing choices, my dear. I want to cover myself in all white today! Fab bikinis!

Sweety P said...

White is always fab! Some people are scared to wear it because of the "OMG, it so going to get dirty" running through their minds. I own a white dress and it is never dirty.

Carlotta said...

loooove white it's my fav color ever, so pure clean and looks so good in summer!!

issa said...

all white.. never goes out of style in my book

Fastidious Babe said...

Eda said...

I adore white clothes...but I'm not very good at wearing them. I always end up with a stain.:(

Legallyblondemel said...

In this 104 degree heat, I particularly appreciate eyeing these crisp summer whites!

That BCBG mini with the interesting texturing is so glam. And that Marchesa is just so, well, Marchesa - love the assymetrical shoulder and almost Celtic detail around the waist.

K8 said...

I'm not usually one for something that is super trendy, and I'm also usually not careful enough to wear white. But, I would love to win the J Brand skinny jeans, they look awesome!

Stephanie Clayton said...

fab stuff!

wish i could wear more white, but it's hard to keep whites fresh-looking in a hot tropical environment- which is just the kind of place one wants to be when wearing whites! oh, the irony! ;)

anyway, i love the white jeans, swimsuits and several of those amazing dresses.

Jaime said...

Love this post! So perfect for summer. Just bought a white maxi dress and am loving it!

dapper kid said...

I have worn an alarming low amount of white this summer for some reason. The Pucci resort dress looks absolutely stunning! And I really do like that BCBG dress. Ooh the B&B look is fantastic, I love the pairing with the colourful jacket. And yum to the Marc Jacobs bag :)

Niki B. said...

everyone looks beautiful in white too! thanks for sharing those lovely photos, and must have summer items :)

i stumbled across your lovely blog via Haute World, and I love it. I will definitely be visiting often!

Cassie said...

wow.. white IS hot. love the photoooos

Emily said...

What could be hotter than summer tan in white? These are all pretty fabulous, but I have to say I'm most in love with the white bikinis- you have to be a pretty brazen bathing beauty to dare to bare it all in white! These suits are all gorgeous. -e

Pau said...

Love Balenciaga jacket, so cute.
XOX

style crusader said...

Why is it always the most unattainable stuff that makes me lose my shiz? *sigh*

Brigadeiro said...

Ooh, love white!!! The drapey white dresses here are especially divine!

Just Another Hofeling said...

I've never worn white pants ever,so know would be a great time to try them out. I do love the look of white, just always been afraid that I couldn't pull it off.

Kelly said...

I LOVE the Marc by Marc Jacobs Lil Riz hobo in white... too bad a white bag is so difficult to maintain.

Amelia said...

Cool contest! I adore white for summer. It makes me sad when I look through my wardrobe and see such a sea of black and navy.

Emily said...

I love white, it's just so light and breezy.

MizzJ said...

Ah white, I have such a love-hate relationship with thee. White can express so many different looks and always look intensely fresh, but it's also intensely high maintenance!

K.Line said...

LOVE the jeans!!

E said...

Those zipper jeans are phenomenal!!

Lindsay said...

all this white is making me want to go on a white spree - it really is classic.

oskarsobsession said...

wow... no you really hit it on the spot.
im stupid for white but unfortunately
im a dirty boy :(

Fashion Personality said...

i love all the white outfit. esp the one shoulder. fantastic!

clareassiral said...

Thank you lovely, I gave you an award on our blog :)

Yuri said...

sometimes it's hard to find a perfect pair of white pants or jeans, i own one but it doesn't fit me perfectly so i just let it lay down on the bottom of my wardrobe. Hope this one will fit (that is if i win it, of course ^o^)

Amazing post! Yuo never fail to inspire me! I always stay away from white because I am so scared it'll be dirty :/

Stephanie said...

I always want to try white jeans but I'm so afraid of getting them dirty! I know myself too well to think I could stay clean every time I wear them.

Estelle Tran said...

White looks good on anybody with any complexion. It just makes people beam. I love that the models showing off those jeans have some shape too. The jeans are so cute too!

Beautiful spread CC!

zupu said...

I adore white always but specially during warm summer! I don't know how to survive without white sheer (not transparent!) tops and dresses or cotton tees. So many beautiful pieces and the first editorial pic is such a perfection!

ZombieLace said...

These white pieces are so stunning and inspiring. I could go for a white bikini but I'm afraid I'm too much of a schlamiel to ever wear much white otherwise.

morgan said...

Love white jeans for summer! The collage of white makes me want to take a week to celebrate the color and wear nothing else! Would loooove to win these J Brands!!

Gabbi said...

Lovely whites dearest CC! I secretly think that this is the most flattering color for my skin tone... I also love♥ your newest giveaway.

Hope you've had a wonderful week. So happy tomorrow is Friday. :) xxoxo♥♥

TheBeautyFile said...

TheBeautyFile said...

Oh love! I used to think I was too pale to pull off white, but now I'm over it and do it all the time...these dresses, jeans and bags are all gorgeous!

Lizzie said...

I LOVE white, I think it looks so amazing in the summer, and I am looking for the perfect pair of white jeans...I still can't seem to find any!!

Danielle said...

White hot for certain! Nothing better than crisp white denim and a flowy blouse :]

Anya Caliendo. Couture Millinery. said...

Carrie, thank you for your lovely comment. When it comes to what I think about Haute Couture Collections - my heart, once again, belongs to Dior! I thought the hats (thanks to the genius of Galliano and Stephen Jones) were absolutely spectacular and overall designes breathtaking. I am sad to learn that my beloved Christian Lacroix might be retiring - his Collections are always so unique and so beautifully designed. I barely survived Valentino Garavani retirement, now - Lacroix!

Sher said...

Strategic entry this time. Trying for an ending spot.....

I completely agree with you, white is a really quintessential shade for summer. I love this beautiul spread, especially the first three pics.

I adore white clothing. Great picks!

Karla said...

I love J Brand AND white jeans! Any advice on how to wear them if you are pear-shaped?

Couture Carrie said...

Hi Karla! The best way to wear white jeans if you are pear-shaped is as a layering piece, with a tunic or top that hits at mid-thigh. Have fun! J Brand truly is the best!

xoxox,
CC

Danielle said...

Gotta love J Brand! White jeans are so chic- I'm loving these!
