GORGEOUS!!! just what I need to see to take me to warmer weather (albeit in my mind) on this VERY COLD day!!

Erika said...

Ooh, Burberry will forever do draping the best; but Francesco Scognamiglio is definitely a close contender for the title. Stunning designs. I definitely love to drape!! :)

Hi. I recently stumbled on your blog and immediately loved the first post I read.

I love drapery. So much! I love the whole 'grecian goddess' vibe that drapes give.

Can you please check out my newly born blog. It's in desperate need of followers. x

HiFashion said...

I love draping. It always reminds me of a fairytale. I love the first one.

Julia, the Thanksgiving Girl said...

Beautiful styles, I like the nude colored and the neon bright colored drapes the most though - it really brings out the texture! Black and other colors don't seem to add to it as much.

Miss Caitlin S. said...

Very beautiful!!!!

Wanderlusting said...

I saw the words Grecian in your Twitter and I had to come see - first blog visit in a while!!

This is just my favourite look because it is so feminine, romantic AND forgiving.

Missed ya, Carrie!!

Mrs. M. said...

i would like to second stilettolover's comment and just say GORGEOUS!!! Honestly, it was just one fanfreakingtastic dress after the other!!!

Hanako66 said...

these are all absolutely gorgeous!!!

jess said...

I adore the pink one.

Panty Buns said...

What pretty styles and color palettes. There is a widely held view that rising hemlines forecast a rising stock market, so the higher the hemlines the better. The fabrics look wonderful and are generously and artistically used in these designs. Now if only somehow we could convince these designers to use models with healthy curvaceous figures. It's so sad to have to leave how these would look on less emaciated models to my imagination, Isn't there some way to bring about some change?

Susan said...

amazing post, darling! I love these dresses.
happy Holidays to you, xoxo

Intrinsically Florrie said...

Some very gorgeous dresses.
I love the Iceberg one; such an elegant style but what a bright pop of colour!

Niki B. said...

Winters Reaper said...

I truly hope all your dreams for Christmas come true…

Xoxoxo

Ps: I would meet you under the mistletoe anytime.

B a la Moda said...

I really like the trends. It reminds me of the classics. I don´t have anything like that though... So better hurry up!
