Love the series you're doing, love love short dresses (even when it's become time for me to go all boho hippie chic and wear them over jeans leggings, too cool still.

Miu Miu dress. i'm still obsessed with it. And i like the last leopard dress))

daisychain said...

I love every single dress you've featured!

the red bungalow said...

Love them! I so wish I could rock these at my conservative job :/ Maybe if I pair them with tights they won't see so leggy?

I'll have to think on this one.

Thanks!
