Milly Rose Dress Take Two
Okay. Remember the Milly dress in this same print that was just a waste of this excellent fabric? Well, obviously, this dress was the main event and that other one was just something to use up the leftover fabric (which explains why it was so skimpy). I still wish they had just given the leftover fabric to ME, but evidently the Milly designers don't read Dress A Day.

This one is available at for $345, but only in size six. (Another reason why I need a couple yards of this fabric for my very own.)

It has, according to the description, "ruched cap sleeves, sweetheart neckline, satin bow detail and front slit pockets." Two out of three isn't bad! (Why "they" feel sleeves have to be ruched this season, I have no clue.) However, I forgive much for pockets. Yay, pockets.

ooh. I really like that. But you should take my liking with a grain of salt, because 1) I’m OBSESSED with teal right now, and 2) I have family members (hi V!) who work for Anthropologie, so I’m not exactly unbiased …

Oh. Love it. And I kinda like the ruched sleeves. I’d forgive a lot for that neckline. Yum.–Lydia

Perfect, perfect! Skinny skirt, little ruched sleeves, a neckline just plunge-y enough to be alluuuuuuuuring: yes, that’s the dress for that fabric. When I saw the first post, I remembered a little vintage sheath (that I tried on and didn’t have the sense to buy) in nearly the same fabric, but with blue roses instead of yellow. Ah, what was I thinking?
