What I Want for Fall: Dresses


Dresses and skirts are my favourite garments--largely due to their comfort, believe it or not. And I guess there is something of the romantic in me that prefers dresses to trousers just for aesthetic purposes. The PreRaphaelite look will probably always be my favourite; it's just too bad that I can no longer fit my dear old favourite vintage Gunne Sax dresses! But I digress. The purpose of this is to show dresses that are actually available now that I would buy if I could. Hmm, I think I can manage that.

I must begin with Vivienne! I love the drapery of this dress (and the fact that it looks like it was actually designed for a real woman). I know most people think of white as a spring and summer colour, but just imagine this with gray (or bright blue or deep purple) patterned tights and ankle boots!

Apron Fish Dress--White

It's funny; I hate militarism and love military styling.

Femme Arsenal Military Dress

I love anything fishnet and actually designed dresses with fishnet portions similar to this back when I was in high school. I was so excited to see that someone else had the idea and was actually able to carry it out.

I keep ending up at Victorian Trading Company!

There is something about this romantic old-fashioned dress that appeals to me.

Dusty Violette Dress

I would love to have this to wear to the opera. Then I would love to have a chance to go to the opera!
Grecian Empire Gown

There's something a bit mad about this dress--Ophelia singing bawdy songs and picking flowers springs to mind. I want it!

And for one last dress, a casual one for a change, I like this unusual little number from a very unusual company. Western looks are big this year and I can see a dress like this paired with some of those gorgeous designer cowgirl boots.

Iridescent Copper Dress

The bad thing is that I could find a hundred dresses at least that I want badly enough to share here. I think I had better let this be the end of this post, or it could go on forever.
