Building Your Wardrobe :: The Essentials

image sources {clockwise}: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7

A fun & flirty printed dress is just as quintessential as a LBD. From baby-doll like silhouettes to high-low hemlines to flowy pleats, I love them all. Fun prints reflect that you know how to have a good time, while flirty silhouettes stay true to your feminine side. Wear this dress during the day for work (*Note: I would not recommend the Robert Rodriguez dress below or the Charlie Jade for work unless you work in a super fun atmosphere - the rest would look great paired with a blazer) or brunching with girls, and take it into night for a perfect date night look.

  2. AH! i love love love that green helmut lang dress in your inspiration pictures..i've been eyeing the top in that print, but the dress is fantastic.

    i've tried the poppy august dress on and it's cute, but probably best if you are tall and fairly straight... i love billowy cuts but it just made me look a little... dumpy?

    need to check out that tibi dress as well!

    thanks for posting!

  3. ah! i LOVE the green helmut lang dress in your inspiration section! i'd been eyeing a HL top in that print but the dress is so.much.better.

    also love the tibi black/white/yellow dress... ugh, of course i love the most expensive options.

    I tried on the myne (august poppy) dress recently and it's cute, but probably best for taller/straighter women... i love a billowy dress, but this one made me look sort of ...dumpy? not good, for sure!

    thanks for posting!

  4. I love these picks--especially the ASOS and Kate Spade dresses. I used to shy away from prints but I'm starting to pick them up more and more now!
