Its almost (officially) summer. The time for one's color palettes to "lighten up". I won't be ditching my blacks any time soon but I will be adding a lot more white to my outfits. Summer calls for lighter, airier pieces...one piece in particular is the little white dress, or, LWD. The LBD's counterpart is is becoming a perennial staple in many closets with heavier fabrics for winter and the cooler months but I think its almost necessary to have an easy, breezy, not-a-care-in-the-world LWD for summer. That said, I don't actually have one..but I'm looking! I'm kind of picky.

I like the American Apparel dress. The Voile Shirtdress is similar to one I saw at Joe Fresh the other day

I love all of the items from complex geometries. So simple but yet so..avant garde kind of.

Hey Anon-
F21 must be sold out of the necklace b/c I can't find it on the US or the Canadian site. Here's a link to a sort of similar necklace though-
