Just A Little More Inspiration For Monday

I came across an article from Elle magazine. They were showcasing what they thought to be 50 of the best dresses for spring. I thought they were rather interesting, a few a little strange, and some not so nice, but in case you missed the article, here's a link, http://www.elle.com/fashion/trend-reports/50-spring-dresses#slide-1 
I posted my favorites below.  
I love mixing prints.
Not my favorite gingham dress, but I think I need to get one made up so that I'll stop posting pictures of gingham dresses!!!
A little different, but I do like the mix of colors.
Great color blocking.

Wonderful use of a border print fabric.
Now this is just a little strange, interesting, but strange.
I really like the pieced and yet modernistic aspect of the dress above.
And finally, this was not part of the 50 best, but I saw it on the Anthropologie website and fell in love with the print.
Hope you've had a great day!

  1. Yes, to all of them. I really feeling like pushing the envelope.

  2. Sewing dresses is my favorite! Thanks for linking to the article...I hadn't seen it. My favorite? the first one :-)

  3. I would love to see what you came up with in a gingham dress. The silhouette is very flattering. I like the Aline skirts, the fit and flare.

    1. I think I do need to work on a black gingham dress as I seem to be drawn to them. I'll see what I have here and then maybe we'll need to shop for something when I come down. I've got Ninfa's on my mind!!!!!!

  4. Oh wow- these are so inspiring- I want variations on most of them!

  5. Interesting collection. The gingham dress is a favourite, but I also liked the asymmetrical dress with the sweep of yellow in front.
