The Cherry Blossom Dress by Juicy Couture
is an adorable dress, although we think it might look better on someone a bit younger than the model. Besides the floral print, it features accordion-pleated ruffle trim at the scoop neck, tiered bottom hem, and shoulders, a drawstring at the neck, a keyhole at the bust, smocked insets at the waist and back, and a hidden side zipper. It is 35 inches long, lined, and the outer layer is made from a cotton and silk blend.
Floral prints with black backgrounds is becoming a new favorite of the Shirt Snobs. The Ginger Drop Dress by Ella Moss
is one such example. It also has a sweetheart neckline, ruching at the bust, sides, and waist, an exposed back zipper, boning at the bodice, and ruched 1.5 inch straps that cross at the back. It is 33 inches long, 100% silk, and lined.
