Daily Covet: Peter Som Dress

Yep, we’re back to dresses… dresses that I can’t wear now, but still dresses.

I am in deep love with this Peter Som dress.  At first glance, it looks sort of “matronly.”  It reminded me of cleaning out my Great Aunt’s closet, which was full of stylish-for-the-times knit/polyester blend dresses.  But close up, this dress is cotton, slightly sheer and features a “rainbow” of blue shades that are some of my faves.


Still not convinced?  Check it out here on Rachel McAdams with a creamy, demure coat and cap-toe pumps!


Daily Covet: DVF Metallic Jacquard Dress

Nobody loves a shift more than me.

And a DVF shift is perfect for balancing out my lower half.  The “shortness” of her many shifts, show off as much of my short legs as I can appropriately show at my age.

And while I won’t be wearing non-maternity clothes for a while, I would love to add this super cool DVF Metallic Jacquard Dress to my ever-growing (never shrinking) dress collection.

It has that cool retro-futuristic (clear as mud, right?) Barbarella quality about it.  And features one of this season’s hottest hues – mint green…. or is it blue?

Whatever… c’est trés adorable!


Daily Covet(s): Roland Mouret

Roland Mouret’s fashion training consisted of three months of schooling at a Paris fashion college in the late 70’s.  You would never know.

Mouret’s dresses always catch my eye when worn on the red carpet, and strike me as a highly wearable piece of art and architecture… if you can afford it, that is.

Roland Mouret dresses don’t come cheap, as many start well over $2000.  It doesn’t however, cost anything to oggle these dresses online and that’s what I have been doing.

Take a look for yourself…












Daily Covet: Lilly Pulitzer Charlene Dress in Stripes

I know it’s only early January, but Spring Fever is kicking in hard core.

I’m tired of knee boots, jeans, turtlenecks and heavy coats already.  I’m really wanting to wear lightweight dresses and sandals or flip flops, open-toed shoes and bright-colored shorts.

Obviously, there are a few months — even after the snow is gone for good — that sleeves and heavier fabrics are still in order.  That’s why this adorable striped Lilly Pulitzer Charlene Dress would be the perfect transition to warmer weather and shorter hemlines.


Daily Covet: DVF dress and I’m baaaaccckkk!

Hi bloggy friends.  Sorry I’ve been MIA, but the holidays and being sick have kept me from doing much posting… ok, any posting for weeks.

But!  Never fear, I am back and of course, my wish list for my spring wardrobe is getting long already.

Today, this DVF Fleurette Dress is quite possibly one of my most favorite resort looks of the season.

Diane Von Furstenberg is one of my faves anyway — especially because I absolutely adore dresses.  But her styles and fabrics are to.die.for.

This particular frock just looks so easy to wear and would be completely hot with both gold or silver sandals, bangles and oversized hoops.  While I have a few months before I’d actually be able to wear this in my ‘hood, I’m craving it’s color now!


Daily Covet: Burberry Brit Check Dress

Burberry always reminds me of fall and winter dressing.

And this Burberry check dress is no different.  I love the slim shape.  I love the epaulets.  I love the subtle Burberry check.

Knee high boots or tights, it’s perfect for almost any occasion!

Daily Covet: Isabel Marant Dress Spring/Summer 2013

I know we are just jumping into fall, but just like the Fashion Weeks of the world, I’m already looking forward to what’s on tap for Spring!

I ran across this Isabel Marant Maryloe dress and fell in love instantly.  I love the forgiving drape and the presumably comfy jersey fabric.

What a fun frock from Isabel Murant to look forward to when warmer weather returns!
