Let’s start out today with the spendiest option I found: a Veronica Beard dress with an unstoppable floral print (I especially like the color combination) and a very flattering shape.
I think the neckline here is quite pretty.
This has the ease and put-together-ness of a shirtdress, but then the strategically-placed bits of flounce take it in a softer direction.
I adore that this dress is seersucker: so unexpected, but totally delightful.
This is sort of caftan-ish, but has good little details—like that crisp mandarin collar—that keep things polished.
A black floral with a bright daisy print: so fun.
The silhouette of this hippie girl dress is pretty clean (and props to Anthropologie for deploying a grown-up model).
My uniform for much of the early 90s included a lot of vintage floral dresses, and this pretty red and white specimen puts me in mind of them, somehow. I guess because it feels slightly retroish.
The lines of this dress are so clean and chic that I almost don’t mind the slightly puffy shoulders.
A sweetly retroish butterfly print.
Here is today’s example of a high (and slightly prissy) neckline I can live with, I think because the rest of the dress is so streamlined.
This dress feels very gamine French girl to me.
I like the flattering neckline on this graphic polka-dotted number.
I can totally see the old me wearing this to the office: it’s such a good, statement-making print, and the dress itself just looks really easy and wearable.
I love how the acid yellow contrasts with the black-and-white leopard print here.
