Ooh, great colors, love her look!!

Anonymous yb said ... (8:48 AM) : 

just awesome. funny that as loud as the outfit is, I'm drawn to the sneakers.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:49 AM) : 

Loooooooooooooooooove it!
Very colourful!


Blogger Unknown said ... (8:52 AM) : 

love the colors here! happy indeed!


Blogger Luka Ivanišević said ... (8:52 AM) : 

Wow really nice colors!


Anonymous Claire said ... (8:52 AM) : 

The colors are beautiful. Something I probably would have wanted to wear when I was six...and now. Love it with the lipstick and converse.

Having a small obsession with Ikat prints these days...


Blogger Bearbabie said ... (8:54 AM) : 

she looks like wear the rainbow❤


Blogger Lauren said ... (8:57 AM) : 

I've never been so compelled to want to wear something as badly or as immediately as this outfit! The dress is amazing, the Converse are a perfect relaxed addition, the fuchsia lipstick is a lovely foil to the bursts of color, and it is AWESOME to have your sunnies on a chain. Convenient and cute.

Love the converse!


Blogger diane said ... (9:04 AM) : 

I love "vacation" clothes.


Blogger msduygu said ... (9:04 AM) : 

I love that she's wearing Chuck Taylors with that dress! If she wore heels, she would look dressy but now she looks cute and effortlessly chic (in my opinion). I tend to do the same thing with dresses when I'm going for a casual look—white Chuck Taylors dress it down without making it look sloppy.


Anonymous Dawne said ... (9:04 AM) : 

Happy + colour = so pretty!


Blogger Aida Chicle said ... (9:04 AM) : 

I dislike the glasses and the converses with this dress, I think that old sunglasses on the hair and classic brown shoes would be a better election, do you know?


Blogger Bruce Barone said ... (9:05 AM) : 

Just discovered your beautiful place here this morning! It makes my day. Peace.

Fab easy silhouette with a bright colorful print on top. You are so not overextended with a fancy apparel piece, plus print plus plus plus.It is just pure simplicity with an awesome graphic.

Joyful and happy indeed.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:16 AM) : 

Cute dress. She looks really nice!


Blogger Kathleen said ... (9:19 AM) : 

Oh I just love this young woman and her "totally fun" outfit. The boxy cut and pattern of her dress remind me of Marimekko's clothing. But, put this outfit on a tanned Italian beauty with a pair of bright white Designer Sneakers (No doubt) and you've got a refreshingly lovely summer outfit. Bella!


Blogger Alexa said ... (9:23 AM) : 

beautiful colours and gorgeous smile!


Anonymous the style crusader said ... (9:24 AM) : 

it's always nice to see people in the sort of simple laid back outfits that you might actually wear on a normal day. love all the colours and the print on her dress. and how cool are her aqua nails?! love this post. xx


Blogger Federica D. said ... (9:24 AM) : 

I love this look! It's really comfy and summery!

My Fiance and I are going to Florence for our honeymoon - the last time I was there was in college and my cash situation was such that I did not eat out much … does anyone have recomendations for any good trattoria's? - thanks!

Blogger FASHION SNAG said ... (10:01 AM) : 

So colorful, but it does nothing for her shape. It is a huge sack.

When you're that pretty and young, you can rock a sack and look fab.

Very summery! Very sweet.

so happy colours good choice



Blogger 82Brute said ... (11:00 AM) : 

Not the most figure flattering shape for a dress, but the colors are truly happy. I love the pockets and the Chucks. Especially love her demure but slightly mischievous smile. You don't see many simple shifts like this. Did she design this herself? Pretty lady.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:03 AM) : 

Ah, I love this - yes!!


Blogger Ginta said ... (11:03 AM) : 

summer perfection - simple cute printed dress, colorful accessories, bright lips, blue nails and white converse!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:10 AM) : 

Eh. The dress doesn't really do much for her figure. I like that it's colorful and adore the Converse kicks with it, but I wouldn't give this dress a 2nd glance. And the old lady glasses rope? I'll pass...


Blogger Madame en noire said ... (11:10 AM) : 



Blogger Jessica / Lola Vintage said ... (11:10 AM) :

The dress is loud, and it's loudness is accentuated both in it's simplicity and nerve.. cool!

Great smile! A higher waist on the dress would do wonders!

the best dress i've seen in months!


Blogger Mai said ... (11:42 AM) : 

that is a fantastic shift and it looks great with converse. i also like how the color of her lipstick is echoed in that print.


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:46 AM) : 

Don't you love how a dress like this can be a stylish alternative to jeans? It's a kick-back and have fun kind of look.


Anonymous jimjims said ... (11:54 AM) :

She's as refreshing a popsicle on a hot day! Not all dresses have to be figure-hugging - this looks cool and breezy and very sexy-fresh. Love the Nouvelle Vague polish and Schiap pink lippy, too.


Anonymous Ben said ... (12:43 PM) : 

Nope. I can't really see a level on which that works at all. I appreciate that it's "fun", but come on. It looks like she's wearing a rather ugly rug.

I like this dress, it is fun, and for summer,it is perfect. I think the converse sneakers take it to a whole new dimension, just like jeans. Bravo.

Love to see a woman who does not feel compelled to show off her shape. This dress hides her body but not HER.

So, love the confidence as well as the sweet, vibrant colors.

I like the dress, but think it would look better with a belt to bring out her shape. I also would suggest a casual pair of wedge heels. I do like the glasses on a chain!

MegScottScottMeg is living for her happy colors. We try to do a chiffon koolat as often as possible and are always happy to see others joining in the fun.

Wow, a girl that doesn't look like a size 2 or less AND she's stylish, doesn't happen very often on this blog...

She wears the dress so well it makes it something I'd like to have in my closet/on me.

I love the cut of the dress with the shoes. But the colors are a little much for me.


Blogger d said ... (6:08 PM) : 

love the last shot


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:53 PM) : 

beautiful girl, shoes very unexpected and great touch. Very few people could carry off this shape/color of dress. The shape is reminiscent of a medical smock--like a dental hygienist would wear (with pants), but she's so beautiful she pulls it off. I think there are tons of other outfits that would look much better on her, but she looks happy so who cares!


Anonymous jdit said ... (7:10 PM) : 

Ohhh yeah. My girlfriend immediately came to mind. She would simply look deliciously cute and adorable in this outfit. She is simply cute and adorable anyway. The color striping looks almost drizzled and would just be perfect. She is a vibrant visual artist and this would just be icing on an already wonderfully perfect cake!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:55 PM) : 

I think there is something wrong with me. I must be the only American on the planet who just abhors sneakers. To me these shoes do nothing to enhance her beauty or her style. Where others see playful, I see stumpy and sweaty. Sure wish my eyes would allow me to appreciate what obviously a lot of others do.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:29 PM) : 

OK. I'm confused. I visit Florence twice a year and I have never, never, ever seen an Italian woman wear something so shapeless. Interesting.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:10 PM) : 

The outfit compliments both a sunny day and her body. The pattern reminds me Uzbekistan motives of their traditional fabrics. Beautiful young lady!

I actually don't like it, but I feel compelled to because she wears it so well. I don't think I'd like it on anyone else.

Sometimes I think the ideal wardrobe would be the same sheath dress made up in a thousand different fabrics. A long ceiling rack like they have at the dry-cleaners: push a button and the dresses flow past you, push a button to stop. Ray Bans, Cons, black cashmere sweater, black suede very high heels, good haircut, regular workouts. A bike and an eReader with 100 books in it. Easy, regal, done.

When I educate women on style or image I always let them know it is not the brand of name that gives a look its the individuality and personality that comes out by knowing yourself.

The dress definitely works on the tanned, attractive young woman. I don't think it would work on most women though.

I don't like the Converse "Chucks" as part of the look though.

Anonymous E. Rossi said ... (5:31 PM) : 

Absolutely great dress, but would work better with more stylish shoes (as has been noted in other comments) or colourful roman women's type sandals or something along those lines. Like the extra touch of the wristbands, and the smile by the way :)

Oddly though, the dress does not seem to be that flatering on her body shape. It begs the question... is this young lady Italian? Im guessing not, because we tend to be all about proportion and cut. Beautiful and 'outside the box' though. Just a little 'boxy' for me.
