I always go easy on prints especially when it is broken up with a plain top or bottom but these dresses are gorgeous but not so keen on the blue and red one.

erika sorocco said...

Congratulations Marie! And oh how I adore that Barbara Tfank - it's very reminiscent of Mad Men. J'adore!! :)

Dania Padron said...

Once again, totally impressed with your eye for fashion and research prowess.

I'm not much for print dresses as theytend to make me look larger than I am, but the Cynthia Rowley dress has nice coloring and a cinched waist. Definitely a contender.

Have a great weekend, chica!

I'm becoming a big fan of Cynthia Rowley due to you. Love her pattern dress.

Cynthia Rowley has the outfit that if you were styling in.. you would have all my attention

Amanda Correa said...

I have to say that I am really diggin' some of the prints that I have seen out there and I usually tend to not be such a prints/colors type of gal. Nice post...I'll take the Twinkle and Cathrine Maldrino please!

Iva Messy said...

Hunters Glory said...

Like the Herve Leger striped bandage mini dress and white always gets my attention...

Jessica said...

I am sooo ready for Spring!

It is quite hilarious, she has always been my favorite designer, but I kid you not every time you have a post with Carolina Herrera in it, it is my favorite dress before I even take time to see who made it! Seriously.

Grace said...

Oh, I'm loving patterned dresses for spring. That striped Nanette Lepore one is fabulous.
