Dream Dress


Ever since the divinely talented fashionista Dustjacket Attic posted this image on her fabulous blog, I haven't been able to stop thinking about it!

I'm in LOVE! Seriously, I would wear this dress (and shoes) every. single. day! Even to the market because that's how much I adore it.

  1. Woa that is beautiful. It must made her feel like a princess in a dream.

  2. I love it too.

    My only concern is - underwear? Would you wear none, or nudie underwear, or a slip?

    And most importantly, you would have to stay away from the fireplace in that dress. It would go up in a second!!

  3. Those sleeves are something else. What detail!! I understand your obsession. I'd also suggest getting a slip or another dress to put beneath it.

  4. Can you imagine how much fun it would be to actually do it? To show up at the market in this dress? You'd feel like the goddess of the bounty. It is glorious, indeed. I could never, never pull off a dress like this, but I have a feeling you could. The shoes, on the other hand, we would both rock! ;D

  6. Mel...what a gorgeous dress...would be a beautiful dress to renew your wedding vows in..hint hint..

    PS...perhaps a little petty coat though? Cause lets face it..we dont give our bikini line that much attention..lol

  7. Dear Mel,
    Deej (as I call Dustjacket Attic!) shows the most wonderful clothes and there are many that I covet...this being one of them. It is such a floaty, diaphonous dress and I would just LOVE to see you pushing your trolly around the supermarket in it. If you do, be careful that you don't get it caught in the wheels !!
    I know exactly why you love it so much. XXXX

  8. Very floaty and ethereal and totally fits with your personality and ethic on life! Sharon xx

  9. I think one should always indulge in something a bit off-the-grid. You would be amazing in this~ the perfect frock for a special dinner and wine by the fire with your sweet McDreamy.

  10. I say go for it. But be sure to wear a bra! hehe! It is a gorgeous dress, and if you can pull it off - wear it everywhere!!!

  11. Instead of that dream dress, i'd rather have those dream legs!

    ReplyDelete
  12. ahh...i would love to wear it everywhere too but i am afraid my gigantic boobs would take it from sweet and ethereal to penthouse circa 1978..
    the shoes though i would KILL in!!!

  13. Divenely gorgeous, go for it and enjoy!

  14. Wow- that is simply gorgeous! I would settle for a blouse version that I could wear with jeans on the weekend or a pencil skirt during the work week.

  15. It's beautiful! Ethereal yet somehow a bit tough because of that sleeve detail that brings armour to mind. Definitely a market hit.

  16. Simply dreamy + romantic!
    ...le sigh~

  17. That looks like total bliss. Complete comfort. Although, I would be too afraid to leave the house in it. I love picturing you pushing your grocery cart through the market in it. It really is beautiful.

  18. yes. that looks like a mel dress. goddessy and beautiful.

  19. Very beautiful! I'm sure it would look beautiful on you. Was thinking of you yesterday... I was browsing dream real estate in Napa & Marin County area and thought of your beautiful view. :)

  21. Oh Gosh Melissa this image IS unforgettable!! I think Mr. McDreamy would not stop smiling if his sweet Melissa wore this everyday! You would take this dress to another level with all your beauty!!
    XO's

  22. Mel, I definitely have to agree with you on this. I love those sort of dresses, its just absolutely fabulous. Hope you've been having a fantastic week, take care! xoxo

  23. i love the way you are! seriously, your comment just made me smile. so there are normal people out there ;)

    and that dress...GORGEOUS! however, if my eyes serve me correctly, isn't it see through? hmmm.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love it. And I have no boobs, thus say...nipples to the wind! Seriously, it is lovely and you could probably find a tiny slip to just give you enough so that you could wear it to the market without prompting mass whispering, and negative chatter among the neighbors!I'd let 'um talk, but might be tough on the rest of the family! Truly lovely!

  25. As others have said, perhaps with a slip or something! I actually think it would be beautiful to get married in........

    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and leaving me a comment, so nice to meet you!

  31. Divine! I can just picture you in the supermarket! Though I think you will have to take your car... a bike might be a bit tricky!

  38. My intepretation? The girl who dreamed of it all...and captured it underneath a fallen star...

    That's where my mind goes in this photo...I would imagine that gown would make any lady any size feel quite comfy and lovely all at the same time......btw, your blog is very pretty.
