Dress for Less: Spring Trends Part 3



  Wednesday, March 23, 2011 at 8:00 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,, 
Here is Part 3 of my Spring Trends Dress for Less series! I'm picking a few of the key trends for Spring 2011 and showing you how you can get those looks for less in a series of posts!  For this post I chose Girly.  If you guys like this you can suggest more spring trends for me to do! :)

Girly: The girly look can be achieved in many ways!  You want to look for light, flowy pieces in blush tones.  Some lace or sheerness would also be a great thing to use in your look. 
Just like with the 70s I opted to choose separate pieces instead of a whole look. The top left dress is expensive at $216, but it's Anna Sui and very pretty, so I had to include it ;)

  11. That dress is 'not found.' I guess I wasn't alone in thinking 216 not the worst price for Anna Sui. Not that I have it anyway. ; )
    and BAH! No, I'm leaving in the afternoon...lame. But I guess we can catch up in London in July! ; D Sooooo international!
