Dresses I Cannot Possess from Madison Avenue

First, these Jimmy Choo shoes.  I don’t want to possess them actually, but I must honor the artistry in the coloring.  Stunning.  More below.

This is a pretty little dress that needs just the right necklace.  I love the bag, which is hard to see, but it’s like a flower.  However the across-the-chest strap isn’t right for this dress, I don’t think.

I was aiming for the polka dot here.

And this is another that I don’t really want to possess, but I admire the construction of the … thing coming down the front.

  1. I saw those shoes in Saks today – $825 yikes That’s like a rent payment or food for a month for most people. It must be nice to afford them (as they are really beautiful in person) but it’s not like you would wear them with a lot of outfits.
