Falling in love with dresses

I'm back! And it's summertime! I have been eager to do a post on the dresses I found at Betsey Johnson. Some of her latest concoctions are absolutely delicious(I hope that didn't sound too cheesy). The textures and colors remind me very much of those seen in the Marie Antoinette movie. Bright pastels and ruffles make these the perfect party and/or cocktail dresses. Evening Aphrodite Strapless Ruffle Dress, $400

Evening Cafe de Paris dress, $425

Evening Flora Strapless Dress, $425

Evening Tea Party Dress, $365

Evening Isadora Strapless Ruffle Dress, $410

Babydoll Battenburg Dress, $320
This one isn't quite as dressy as the others, but the color, ribbon and lacy look definitely had me sold!

These dresses look good enough to eat! Don't they make you want to have a garden tea party or perhaps stroll in the gardens of Le Petit Trianon? I know Betsey Johnson is known for her flirty and essentially girly styles in her designs, and I wonder if she was inspired by Marie Antoinette when designing these??

I have to sadly admit I have not seen "the" M.A. movie yet~~my husband bought it for me and I just know I have to watch it un~interrupted which rarely happens with a certain little curious 5 year old running around~~thanks for checking out my blog~~will be back!
