So I was doing some research for something completely different and found this Marc by Marc Jacobs dress on Nordstrom.com from the Spring 2008 line. I was so distracted that I completely forgot what I was originally looking for and had to write this post. Just…just look at this dress!
Its high hemline is a modern take on the 1950s tea-party dress, and the yellow floral print is simply delightful. Normally I’d think the gem detailing and the bow were simply too much, too girly actually, but the slightly daring hemline and the intentionally messy styling of the model’s hair prevents the look from being too saccharine. At $698 I’ll probably have to settle for admiring this dress from afar, but for the moment I am completely under its spell!
