Fashion Week: Part 2

Let the parade of dresses I will forever be too poor to wear continue!

It seems that we'll be wearing a lot of cobalt come spring, which is lucky because I look very good in all shades of blue. Doo.Ri showed this stunning, perfectly draped dress, which seems so effortlessly glamorous. It's a very sexy dress, because it almost looks like if you tugged one bit of fabric, the whole thing would just fall away. But the possible scandal is implied; there's just a swatch of skin showing on her chest, and you can't even see her knees. A very nice balance.

Carlos Miele also showed a great cobalt gown, strapless with layers of shiny and matte fabric, plus a cloud of taffeta (or something) at the bottom. I also loved this red dress he showed, although those shoes are absolutely the wrong choice.

Lela Rose showed a lot of lovely dresses, but this particular one is a great use of the goddess trend, which, really, should never go out of style. Why look like a woman when you can look like a goddess, right?

For a change of pace, here's a non-blue dress. I tend to be underwhelmed by black dresses, but this Tracy Reese dress is so ladylike and charming that I can't help but fall in love with it. It's a bit old fashioned with the poofy skirt and lace overlay, but the shorter length and fun gathered neckline keep it young.

This Zac Posen dress sort of looks like you fashioned a dress out of a yellow picnic blanket. But in a flirty, fun, awesome way.
