Megan Carter

I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve. And so once again, I'm in love, I'm in love and I don't care who knows it!

This time my affair is with the luminous and affordable designs of Megan Carter. How gorgeous are these drop earrings? Sophisticated, fun and classic.

CK Bradley and Ikat

Loving this print and dress by CK Bradley. It's like her own version of Ikat, inspired by a trip she took to Morocco a few years ago. Perhaps the resemblance wasn't even her intention, but it's amazing how the subconscious is influenced by the random images we're bombarded with on a daily basis. I love how it's similar to Ikat, but not actually Ikat like every other designer is doing right now. Ikat is great, but the whole craze has gotten a little...crazy. It's refreshing to have something unique. And it's made in the US! So cute!

My Favorite Summer 2010 Collections


The printed linen dress with awesome pockets above is just perfect. I'm in love.

DVF-- Yeah, I know the first dress is sooo similar to the Tory Burch one I posted on a while back, but I love the print

Emilio Pucci

Roberto Cavalli

(Thanks to Saks Fifth Avenue for all the great images)

Smocked Bodices-- Current?

When I saw the new Vineyard Vines catalog, I thought "Gross... that madras dress looks like a bad take on Juicy's terry dresses circa 2003"-- the bodice stitching just looks very cheap to my eye. Then I saw a very similarly styled dress by Milly in a print that I just love (seen above).

What do you guys think? Is the bodice cheap looking? Does anyone have the bad flashbacks that I'm having?
