twenty-seven names

c

If there are any gaps in my spring wardrobe, they come in the form of navy and white polka dots (can't get enough of those right now) and a little white dress. It seems that twenty-seven names has the answer to both of those.

I especially like the little white dresses. That's a piece of my wardrobe that has eluded me for some time now. Every one I find ends up making me feel a bit too precious, if you know what I mean. I don't know... wearing all white always makes me feel a bit conspicuous. That and I know it won't be long before I've spilled something all down the front. But somehow I think I could make an exception for one of these.

Wow, I love these, especially the polka dot dress on the right. I've never heard of this label before, must check it out!

These are all so pretty! I love the polka dots especially. And I know what you mean about white dresses, they make me a little uneasy too. Whenever I wear one I get an overwhelming sense of nostalgia because for 10 years I wore a white dress on First Fridays in my Catholic school! But the right kind of white dress can be very satisfying, I must say. (:

I bought a marvellous cut out white cotton fabric and I plan to sew a very simple dress for the summer (at least as soon as we develope a simple dress pattern at the sewing course!). All white scares me a bit as well, probably because I think I'm too pale for it... Time for trying again to get a light light tan?!

I know I would! Those little white dresses are simply dreamy! And the blue one are so cute, but I've compeletly fallen for the white shirtdress.

Wow, so much loveliness in one place shouldn't be possible. Never had about this label before but will checking them out.

Good luck finding a white dress that is just right :)

These are gorgeous - I love the last white dress. I feel exactly the same about wearing white though - both feeling too 'angelic' but more because I spill EVERYTHING. haha. :-p

I just started a vintage blog too, please let me know what you think :)

Oh, I love polka dots, especially if they're navy and white. But I must keep myself from buying anymore, I already own too many dresses with polka dots now, but these are really lovely, oh well...

I really feel you on the whole "too precious" thing. I just rid my closet of pretty much everything that made me feel like that! Some of those are really gorgeous though... where did you see the individual images? Whenever I check their site I can only find two collections and it isn't that stuff.. ?

I generally really enjoy your blog -- but I have to say these photos creep me out. There's nothing wrong with the clothes, but there's something vaguely disturbing about a fashion layout populated with what appear to be 12 year old girls that look much as if they had just been lead out of the walled compound of some religious sect...

oooooh, i want everything! although, i've always been a sucker for white- so pretty romantic, but a touch sexy too.

Oh, that white dress on the right is so perfect. I think you would look lovely in it and in some brown boots!

I love these too... but I have to agree with anonymous - what's with all the 12 year old models??
