Pretty Pretty Dresses

The gowns from the Valentino Fall 2013 collection remind me of tea time. A very posh and expensive tea service to be sure, but high tea none the less. Porcelain inspired patterns and lace, the simple cuts accentuating the complex patterns and sumptuous colors. I can’t decide which style I like more. I am a huge sucker for floral patterns and delicate lace, but the solid sapphire and ruby dresses are so rich looking.

The rest of fall collection is very attractive, but I am far more interested in gowns than I’ll ever be day to day wear. Mentally is goes something like, “Blah, blah, blah, just show me the pretty dresses!”

About Julie

My name is Julieanna Bucior, but I go by Julie (unless I'm in trouble). I'm thirty one. I am a bookkeeper by day, rogue fashion designer/crafter/amateur baker by night. I spend most of my time feeling like a kindergartner trapped inside an adult's body. I love reading, hanging out with my crazy cats and being silly. I'm pretty much the girl next door, with a twist.
