I’m in L.A. and my friend Mark D. Sikes is in Punta Cana, bad timing. He ran the beautiful vintage pic above in a post before he left. Yesterday, while reading the WSJ by the pool at the W Westwood, I came across Meenal Mistry’s article on her love of long, white lace dresses, and had a synchronistic moment. Paired with my own straw market basket and K. Jacques sandals, I would live in a white maxi dress, and it now tops my summer list.

  • I was inspired by the same article yesterday. I am SO happy to see longer dresses coming back, and in white = timeless elegance.

  • Recently had the pleasure of visiting America’s own slice of paradise, Kauai. Kauai’s soft breeze and technicolor water, sky, and plant life calls for flowy skirts and dresses and a great hat. I adore white because of the uncluttered look of it. After seasons of busy, dizzy prints, I embrace the calm of white.

  • I love this style, but I have trouble finding dresses that flow but still fit and aren’t completely enormous!

  • Love long, white and flowy in the summer! Even better with lace.

  • Great minds think alike!! I was in Troncones Mexico for a party this weekend wearing cotton white dresses in a variety of lengths. (Favourite is from Heidi Klein). I also brought kJaques and St tropez in different styles. Paired with an orange straw bag in the day and a canvas clutch in the evening for beach parties and suppers. The vibe here is chic with a bohemian slant.
    I am always inspired by KIC, the WSJ and Mark Sikes.

    Keep it coming !
