while dodging work the other day i started looking through some of the many designers that i will never be able to afford (unless they end up at TJMaxx some day, a girl can dream)

i fell in love with all of the following and wish i could hit the lotto today because i would create a triumvirate of personal designers and it would quite possibly make me the best dressed person EVER!

this group would be composed of my all-time favorites –

Maggy London (her and her killer pockets in dresses!)  there’s no need to post any photos because pretty much all/any of my shopping posts include at least one dress from her that i’ve recently purchased

the next on the list would be a certain Mr. Michael Kors.  i’m not crazy about everything he does but when he makes stuff like this i just can’t help myself.  i want to make out with him and then try it all on!

so the third slot in this group i used to think would possibly go to Carmen Marc Valvo.  my absolute favorite dress (that i own) is by him and i’ve had a serious crush ever since.  but recently i’ve looked at his stuff and thought, meh, not so crazy about it anymore.  it doesn’t stand the time test and i would have to seriously cherry pick from his current collections.  so he’s been replaced.  by none other than Luisa Beccaria.  it’s officially love!  look at these puppies… (and yes i would totally wear these whities after the wedding, the one with the big flower is to-die-for!)  can i just tell you that the first one would make me feel like Natalie Wood circa. 1961… love it!

louisa-chiffon louisa-lace-pieces louisa-lavey louisa-yellow luisa-green louisa-wedding luisa-floral1 luisa-grey luisa-silver

maybe i’m just really into chiffon right now but her stuff just makes me want to go shopping.  if i had dresses like these i would wear them every day!  (unless it’s a car washing day of course)

anyone want to loan me a couple thou’ so i can buy one… maybe 2 if i can negotiate a deal : )

anyone know of any affordable lines out there that have gone chiffon crazy this summer?  something that falls within the affordable range for most people?

  1. I have been scouring the internet for dresses today, actually, and those are just beautiful! I wouldn’t mind some money to throw around on a fabulous dress.
