Good that I have one black dress that stretched on top and the neckline now comes to the side, thus making the dress a one shoulder assymetric sort of thing... hehe Lucky me! A ready made trend, a dress that DIY-ed itself lol :)

Michael St. James said...

That Hervé Léger by Max Azria dress is my fave, but these are all some pretty fab picks!

Eric said...

I new twist on the LBD, thank goodness. Not that I don't love a LBD, but I'm not so great at accessorizing, and with dresses like these it's not really a requirement, except for the right pair of shoes, of course.
