I am so in the mood for fall now! I wish Texas actually had seasons instead of just "hot". All of these dresses are super cute!
:)

Erika said...

Congratulations Miranda!

To be quite honest, I've never been much into prints, but over the past few weeks I've fallen for them - thanks to the floral printed tank I picked up last week. I quite like the pieces by James Coviello as they are a little more understated and wearable as far as prints go. :)

Cindy said...

I love ModCloth! Everything about #7 is perfect... I would kill to own that dress. Ok, maybe not kill, but I would definitely give someone a stern look. :)

Hi there. Love your site. Gave you an award today for Great Fashion Read. These prints remind me of a Missoni dress my sister had back in the '80s...We couldn't predict which things we bought would become classics and which would become food for future comics.

yiqin; said...

Pinky said...

That maxi dress is amazingggg as is the Preen dress WOW!

P.S. I saw your comment on Liz's blog about Bikram yoga, is it worth it? Does it help with weightloss? I am dying to try it, but am a little afraid.

I'm pretty much a shy person and never really have the gut for trying on some patterns like these dressed you've shown us, but after reading your post today, I think I want to try wearing more pattern and bright colour combo! Thank you for inspiring, CC :)

Awesome colors and love the dress styles- thanks!

polly said...

I love modcloth and could shop there all week - but shipping and toll to Europe has been quite a stopping sign most of the times.

Print dresses - gorgeous to look at like some expressionists painting. Although not easy and not for everyone to wear imho ...

Cocco said...

that´s perfect!! i love most of them.

this season dress rules!

Susan said...

I love the funky colors and patterns. gorgeous choices, darling!
