Dress Fest

Screen Shot 2013-05-01 at 8.32.28 PMI think we can all agree that Free People has stepped up their game over the past few years. I remember when their stuff seemed to be nothing but crochet and knit flower appliqués as far as the eye could see. For that reason, it took me a minute to catch on to the fact that Free People is not just for hippies anymore. In fact, the collection is chock full of stunning pieces for a range of styles and budgets. Right now, I’m pretty fixated on their dresses and have quite a wish list going for a breezy summer wardrobe that’s equal parts feminine, flattering, comfy, and edgy. These are some of my top picks for every occasion from lazy days poolside to a twinkly twilight wedding. Which one is going to make it onto your wish list?
