Loooove the Blumarine dress and how it's paired with those boots!

TERI REES WANG said...

I am all over that 'Karen Walker' and the 'Nina Ricci'...

But, I still need to pump up the 4lb hand weights, to get those shoulders smooth!
...I'm doing it, and doing well.

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Me want! Me want! These are all so gorgeous.

(Although I'm not a huge fan of the Bambi dress...or, at least I don't think I could get away with it. LOL!).

I hope you had a great weekend. xoxo

i love tube top dresses. They're always so refreshing and easy to style with different blazers and jackets. You can easily go from casual to a formal look.
