Cacharel Floral Dress is Perfect for May

by jennine on May 2, 2011

This year anything goes. Literally. I’ve tried quantifying what I like this year… 70′s, modern, futuristic, edgy, classic, girly… bell bottoms, trousers, dresses, shorts… there is not one thing that I can put my scattered mind and say…yep, that’s the look for 2011. One thing I can tell you is my undying love for Cacharel. Ever since first seeing them up close in the late 90′s, I’ve been obsessed with their beautiful prints.

A few weeks ago, I started up a profile on Lyst which is well curated a social shopping platform, it was there browsing through the available Cacharel inventory that a lovely dress appeared for $260… really cheap for the average silk dress, and even cheaper considering the label. Since purchasing the dress, I’ve worn it just about every opportunity possible, mostly with my Topshop faux leather jacket, loving the mix between feminine and edgy. Anything does go… and the more mixing the better.

I love your complete look from shoes to fingertips!! You are right the print is beautiful and could work many ways. I hope you can stop by my site and read about an event I covered on Saturday…I am going to do several posts, but the first one was about a moment I witnessed between a star of the Young & The Restless and a budding jewlery designer…would love to share it with you!!

In my book everything always goes as you please.
I love the clash of silk and leather.
You look fabulous, Jennine.
Any chance of a nail close up????

You look a double helping of loveliness. The colors the print of the dress is outstanding. I love how you paired it- tough leather jacket and sweet sweet maryjanes!

I used to be so picky about what I wore all the time. Since I have adopted the “anything goes” attitude, I find myself taking more chances.
It works!

You look so lovely in this dress. I love how you made the dress a little edgier with the leather jacket and yet kept it girlie with the gold heels and the pop of color in the bag is brilliant. I wish I could find vintage inspired pieces like this in my price range and size, but I guess that’s what my sewing machine is for :P

I am loving so many different looks for summer too. This dress looks amazing on you

Great look, the jacket really packs a punch. The shoes are really unexpected and give it that something extra.

I actually adore this outfit, the shoes totally finish it off for me. You have made me day!

Floral-print dresses are my big obsession right now so love to see you wearing one. Silk has always been my favourite fabric.
