For myself, I would definitely want to go with the short dress that has all the ultra-feminine ruffles and bows by Christian Dior worn with the over-the-knee boots. Fabulous.

TERI REES WANG said...

Always so torn between the milk maid apron day dresses, and the regal lady in waiting hierarchy pouf sleeve.

lisa said...

Hmm for me it's a silhouette that fits the body and shows off curves (either an A line, fit-and-flare, or a sheath), a certain demure quality, and lovely details. I adore ladylike looks so this post was right up my alley!

HiFashion said...

These are all really pretty. These kind's of dresses are definitely what I'm planning to wear this summer.

glaykisdolcevita said...

Osbert, playday and Thakoon dresses are not on my lust list. I quite like all the little detailing, textures and accessories too

Love the Anna Sui and Marni.

Because of my ample bottom and small waist, lady-like looks are the only ones that make me feel pretty and sexy. Sure, it's easier to wear a shapeless babydoll (and I often do!) but my bf always comments (positively) when I wear a more fitted dress.

Once I get more moolah, there's a few vintage, Mad Men-type ones I wanna get on Modcloth :P

Some bracelet-length sleeve action, I see.
