Today’s dress comes to us from the most recent Anne Barge collection, and it is no surprise this dress is all about the belt. This amazing belt!!! The dress itself is no wilting flower however. Arden begins with a flawless pleated bodice made to flatter the bust,and she ends with an elegant modified a-line skirt with dynamic asymmetrical seaming. Just when you thought this dress had it all, we topped it with a breathtaking belt. The belt’s highlight is three pale blue geometric flowers. Wow! That was a lot of descriptive words, but I can’t help it. This style is full of details and full of wow-factor. Check it out…

I have a really bad habit of letting tv shows take over my life. I tend to catch on a little late then end up watching whole seasons obsessively in two or three days. My newest obsession; Downton Abbey. I am very mad there is only one more season for me to watch. They need to make more now! Downton Abbey can be seen on PBS visit their website for times in your area.

One of the things I love about the show is the clothes. The Grantham ladies have exquisite taste and plenty of money to spend on their turn of the century frocks. The beaded chiffon flows off their bodies making them feminine and delicate and at the same time irresistible and clever. I can’t get enough. In fact, if I were getting married right now I would consider this a theme for my wedding. I would of coarse turn to Anne Barge for my gown, and the following dresses would be front runners!
