Knit Tunic Dress with Marled Trim (XS)
I don't know why, but I love this dress. It is so cute and flattering... and pocketed! But, for how I would want to use it (i.e. as an actual dress) it is too short and the vee is too deep. The XS was nicely fitted without being too bootylicious. I'm going to rack my brain for a way to make this work. Too darn cute and comfy, and yet sexy?

Linen Cap-Sleeve Dress (size 2) in Festival Orange
Cuter than I thought it would be but I didn't love it. The good: the waist nips in nicely and the neckline is finally lower! The bad: the top is a little baggy and there is a lot of volume on the skirt (which is really cute but takes me out of my comfort zone). I think some people will look adorable in this dress - I'm just not sold. I think it would look better in a slightly stiffer material.
Stripe Shirttail Dress (XS)
So I'm not sure what's going on this this dress but I can't even link to the product page anymore. I don't know if it's that sold out or they're trying to make it store only or what. Weird. Anyhoo, it's adorable and comfy and easy and I like the shirttail hem but I really do need something longer. I loveth short dresses but I do need to bend over. Just once in a while. I liked the XS - not too baggy and not too tight.
Overall impressions of spring?
- Where are the fab printed pencil skirts? Or fab prints in general? I'm not counting the punk one since I'm not loving
- Why are the hemlines still so high (and I love short skirts)?
- Why are the necklines so high?
