Dress of the Day

Looking at all the popular style blogs nowadays makes me realize that a lot of them lack color and feminity which I find rather sad because I value both in terms of how I define my own style. What happened to flirty dresses in vibrant, fun colors? I’m not talking going all vintage vixen, but it seems a lot of girls aim for the “cool laid-back”-style by opting for baggy, oversized clothing in something between gray to black. I might have no right to critize other people’s personal taste, but c’mon mix things up a little! I don’t want get a depression from checking your blog. Apropos, can you imagine getting depressed by these feminine ModCloth dresses? I don’t think so. Just looking at them makes me happy. And they come in all those pretty, vibrant colors (including your standard boring black). I want!

If there’s anything LuLu*s is extremely good at, then it’s finding the most beautiful dresses for the smallest prices. Seriously, you gotta love them for that! I’ve never seen so many fab dresses under $50 anywhere else. I looooove to browse their New Arrivals section each week. Today it’s the “Line Detector Dress” which stole my heart. I’m a total sucker for striped dresses. I own several already, but still want more and I definitely want this one in my closet. It’s so summery, like elegant and girly had a baby. L.O.V.E.

I’ve been looking at this picture of model Nika Lauraitis posing in front of the Barbadian sun for the last few days and I must say I’m slightly obsessed. The editorial called Sweet Reverie (shot by Max Abadian) has been printed in Flare’s May issue and it is outstandingly beautiful, relaxed, dreamy. Definitely one of my favorite editorials of 2010. I’ve been especially smitten with Nika’s delicate white lace dress (hers is by Dolce & Gabbana S/S 2010) which she wears over a black corset here. White lace is undoubtedly tricky to pull off for grown women, but I think I found a couple of great and budget-friendly options which could look – if accessorized right – almost quite as eye-catching as D&G’s lacy number.

So what are you going to wear on July 4th? If you’re clueless about your BBQ outfit yet, let me show you this summer dress by LuLu*s. Dressing up in blue, red & white has gotten pretty lame and way too predictable, don’t you agree? Instead throw on this easy breezy summer dress and you’re good to go. It’s fabulous, perfect for the occasion and most of all – not cheeky.

I know some of you won’t share my enthusiasm for this Hurley Ladyhawk Dress, but I don’t care because I totally love it. The asymmetrical hemline adds subtle sexiness while the neutral shades make it your perfect summer dress. It can serve as your go-to beach dress or – if accessorized accordingly – be worn for an afternoon shopping spree and/or a relaxed dinner party with friends. This dress screams for a belt (the one shown below isn’t included), so make sure to use one from the same color family, preferably a braided, vintage one.
