 Sincerely Paris Halter Dress, Girls from Savoy, size 4, $148
This cute little dress is covered with postmark stamps that are presumably from Paris.  A departure from the full skirts of previous Girls from Savoy halter dresses, this is a nice springy number with a pencil skirt on the bottom.  I can definitely see how this is a well liked dress in the blogger community.  It's very breathable cotton AND machine washable!  My only con was that the zipper was a bit too exposed for my liking and I would have liked to see a shorter hem -- I like my skirts above the knee.  But taller ladies should appreciate this dress.  Sizing is typical for Girls from Savoy -- ladies in between sizes should size up.  A great staple dress for any wardrobe.  I think I'm going to pass on it due to the length and the fact that it's harder to wear a bra with a halter dress, but definitely give it a go if you're interested.

Fan-cut Iberis Dress, Moulinette Seours, size 2, $168
This is one of those dresses that I really loved in person, but the pictures don't seem to do it justice.  It looks really washed out here, but it really is a nice, springy pattern.  It's silk and reminds me of classic Moulinette Seours -- streamlined, silky material and feminine.  The twist here is the neat cutouts in the front and the back.   It had a great feel and could stand alone or layered under a variety of different cardigans and blazers.  This is something I'd keep an eye on when it hit sale.  Fits TTS to a teeeeny bit big, so ladies in between sizes may want to try both.

Cloudrose Dress, Deletta, size XS, $158
Sigh.  As the cost of natural fibers goes up, I've noticed that many higher end retailers are going with more synthetic material -- this number is made of rayon.  Interestingly enough, I couldn't tell until I looked at the tag!  The dress is very nicely cut and flattering on the body with a nicely cut neck and an above the knee length.  My only gripe is that the scrunching of the pattern at the waist bothers me. I'm not sure why, but it's stopping me from loving this one.  I'm usually an XS in Deletta, so I say go with whatever size you tend to get with this line. This one is a pass for me, but might be well worth it for those who love clouds!

Cabana Chemise, Saturday/Sunday, size XS, $68
Ah, what a nautical little pretty!  Blue and white stripe with a rope belt -- how could you NOT go sailing in it?  This is one of those great lounge pieces that I could see many ladies in the community wearing as a dress.  And it's made of cotton!  What a great value :).  A few gripes for the petite (or short waisted) -- i hate predefined belted waists because they tend to be below my natural waist.  A belt at the widest part of my body?  No thank you!  Taller ladies might see this one working fabulously for them.  Fits TTS.  This is a pass for me.  

What are you looking to pick up?  Hope there's a sale today! Thanks for stopping by :).
