Alice + Olivia: Spring Awakening
As spring break nears, I am reevaluating and exchanging the dreariness of my winter wear for the bright florals of spring. While we all cannot afford the numerous beauties from Dolce and Gabbana and Carolina Herrera, we can set our sights on Alice + Olivia, whose plethora of pretty frocks this season left me invigorated and encouraged. (Yes, even I experience fashion fatigue...usually in the midst of a long, seemingly unending cold winter season.) Most of their dresses are $500 and under, and this red and white silk floral applique dress is $370--a reasonable price for a unique design and quality craftsmanship. Wear this fearlessly with platforms for a fierce look or with flats for a more casual look. At Nordstrom.com.
