Dresses that impress

Spring was definitely in the air today with the sight of shorts, flip-flops, and t-shirts.  Perhaps a tad too early for the flip-flops (especially considering the fact that I still see people walking around in boots), but it was a gorgeous day, so they're forgiven.  It got me thinking about my summer wardrobe.  I'm on the lookout for more sundresses! I'm waiting until I head back to Toronto for my shopping, so in the meantime, I online window shop.  Here's a small selection of dresses from Modcloth that instantly caught my eye.  Bold print, vintage design, and lovely florals? Yes, please!

I adore the ravishing colour of the 4th dress, especially in that pattern. The 3rd dress is simply adorable with its little bow.  It reminds me of a caramel cappuccino with chocolate drizzle.  I could see myself getting more wear out of the first two dresses though since they're a tad more casual.  The floral detailing along the 1st dress makes it a bit more elegant, but being over-dressed never stopped me before.  Which one's your favourite?

On another note, I'm expecting a call tomorrow from 'ica watermelon' designer, Julia Knupfer!  Yes, I'll be doing another designer interview tomorrow!  Julia is one of the many designers that will be showcasing at the Toronto Alternative Arts & Fashion Show from April 26-29.  Stay tuned for my interview with her and others starting next week!

  7. Thank you for the comment! <3 Really appreciate it!

    I've actually been mildly obsessed with that fourth dress since I first saw it :] I get that way with dresses. Needless to say, it's my favorite, but I also really like the second (I'm imagining it with colorful tights and a cute, belted cardigan in the fall and great wedge sandals in the spring/summer...) :]
