that sweater dress is incredible

Erika said...

Congratulations flashingfashionx!

Ooh, I simply adore this post. I'm obsessed with florals as of late. I purchased a flowy floral tank with crocheted details at Forever 21 not too long ago, and I practically live in it. The Tucker Smocked Floral Blouse is my absolute favorite. It would look divine paired with skinny jeans. And Anna Sui? I die at all of her creations! :)

Carrie said...

Floral is still in for fall???! Good to know. I've been contemplating all summer about getting something floral but I was afraid the trend was gonna fade. I guess it wouldn't be so bad if I got something now, considering it is spring here in Australia. I'll blend in and still look like I'm keeping up with fall fashion trends ;) Great post, Carrie.
