I love all of these! The strapless look is great if you can pull it off, I feel like I can't so I never wear it, maybe one day!

Oh I love the strapless dress! At times I get a little self-conscious and end up putting a blazer or sweater over them, but this post has inspired me to let my shoulders out! Just gorgeous love! Have a great day XOXO

Believe it or not I have yet to buy a new strapless bra. I like the dresses with the pleated chiffon look on the bottom that are marked Tibi.jpg and Versus.jpg. They're very pretty.

The Lanvin silk-blend bustier dress would be perfect for my bridal shower!

Always love anything Herve Leger!

I love the Herve Leger dresses. They're a bit overdone, but on the right figure they look amazing. The Marchesa is stunning as well.
