Oh flowered dresses, you’re all I want to wear right now. Tomboys, you can keep your shorts and tank tops. What I’m craving is a long, diaphanous, flowered dress printed with tiny little sprigs of spring goodness. I saw Jessica Alba wearing one recently, and last fall’s spring runway stunners are just beginning to hit shelves. The flowered dress is this season’s staple!
In my closet I have several versions of flowered dresses, including a floor-length wisp of chiffon that I inherited from my husband’s grandmother Bebe, a woman of excellent taste well into her 90s. I rock that with some 21st century heels and it’s garden-party ready.
I also have a sweet little recycled DVF knock-off rainbow-patterned floral dress that I scored recently at my favorite thrift store. A little more demure, but it definitely says spring!
