Summer Love

I'm having a bit of a love affair with this Max and Cleo dress; I've had its window open in my browser for weeks, and, almost daily, I've returned to stare and admire. I have a feeling, subconsciously, it even influenced my last post (note a striking similarity in the neutral color scheme...)


Adore the dress as I may, the paper-bag waist might not be quite so flattering on my body, nor likely would be the short bodice. Perhaps the dress knows this and is staying away in order to let me down gently, because I must admit, as of yet, this affair is a bit one-sided. Sweet dress, if I am wrong about you, however, please know I wouldn't mind should you show up unexpectedly at my door.

Hi Courtney, I agree, it is a beautiful dress - perhaps it is the summeriness of it, the purity in its simple design. I say go for it! I love the jcrew stuff too but unfortunately I cannot get it here in Australia, which is fortunate for my wallet! Post a pic once you are wearing it! x Jayne

I love this. But I'm with you- don't know if my body shape could pull it off. But we could always try!
