Viewpoint: Spring 2012 Gowns with…..Pick Ups.

I’m going to admit something that might end up embarrassing me a little bit. There’s a style of dress that is so not me, but I totally love it. It involves pick-ups, to a degree. Now, don’t get all feisty with me. Pick-ups have come a long way! I’m not talking about those horrid, horrid gowns that make you look like the top of a lemon meringue pie. No, no. Not those. I’m talking about the gowns that have a little sumpin’ sumpin’ under the hood, almost like you’ve got on two (TWO!) dresses at once. More precisely, like you’ve got on an underskirt or petticoat or something cool like that. It very much reminds me of the Marie Antoinette styled shoot that Annie Leibovitz did for Vogue when that Kirsten Dunst movie came out. Layers and layers of brocade…sigh. It makes me all swoony inside when I think of the fashion from that era.

Anyway, I was sifting through the Spring 2012 gowns and saw a few in this trend and thought I’d share.

St.Pucchi

Ulla Maija

Matthew Cristopher

Oscar delaRenta

Sarah Jassir

The Jassir and the Matthew Christopher make me all happy and gooey and fluffy feeling inside. You? Do tell.
