These white dresses from Erdem’s Spring 2015 show just scream “summer afternoon”.  Inspiration is Mary Cassatt’s Young Woman Sewing in a Garden.

Christian Siriano’s runway show was, by far, my favorite. I would wear everything, if I could.

I love how he pulls off clean lines, even with fringe.

DVF seems to have the idea of a perfect summer down: flowy dress, bare legs and a lush print.

I’m not so sure I could wear such a bold floral print, but it sure as heck looks cool…I love the lines of the skirt and top the most

Absolutely no shade, as the wonderful Latrice Royale says. But, tell me you don’t see a manila envelope when you look at this dress? And, yes, I would wear this every day, until it fell apart.

I’m a sucker for a color block dress; I make no apologies. The cutout shoulders and swingy skirt of this dress would be perfect for a spring day.
