Well who says looking like you are part of the Black Swan movie cast is over? Apparently bridal dresses made with feathers is the new trend for the season, but Kim Kardashian was spotted wearing this little number out in Paris not as a wedding dress. Maybe it was a hint that she will be getting hitched soon after the baby is born to Kanye West? Whatever the reason? This gorgeous white dress by JCrew is a must have for $895.
The top of the dress is made of a sleeveless linen button back top and the skirt of this dress is made of feathers. All in white, this is a wedding dress or a dress to wear when you want to make sure you are the center of attention this spring and summer season of 2013.

Yes you can now wear white if you have not been wearing white before Memorial Day already. Summertime is in the air and white, lacy pieces are back. Designers are releasing their summer collections and the darks from this winter and spring should be tucked in the back of your wardrobe.
My top 5 white pieces for this summer are:
1)Â Â Â Â Â Joie Rathana Dress: This flattering dress is made of crinkled cotton gauze and has two flap pockets at the bust. If I were you Iâ€™d pair this white dress with a thin belt and some sandals. You can buy it at Shopbop for $218.
2)Â Â Â Â Â Dolce Vita Garbo Embroidered Dress: This white cotton dress features vertical navy embroidery and a drawstring tie at the waist. My favorite part is that the chic and casual beaded straps tie at the back, making this dress both easy to wear and insanely flattering. Grab this at Shopbop for $209.
3)Â Â Â Â Â Rory Beca Laura Pocket Tunic: Simple blouses are perfect for summer. This white silk crepe blouse has a split crew neck and a fold over collar, as well as patch pockets and Â¾ sleeves. You can buy it at Shopbop for only $139.
4)Â Â Â Â Â Neil Barrett Skirt with Front Pleat: Neil Barrett mastered making a skirt both structured and wearable. This off-white skirt, with a layered front pleat is great for any party this summer. Buy it at intermix for $758.
5)Â Â Â Â Â J Brand cutoff shorts: J Brand makes by far the best 5 pocket shorts. This pair is made from intentionally worn denim to keep up with the slouchy chic outfits that all the celebs have been wearing. Also, the cuffs havenâ€™t been stitched down so you can either roll them up for a more put together look or roll them down to leave the raw edged hems. Buy this pair at intermix for $155.
Colorful, wear anywhere The Victoria Bridal Gown by White House Black Market. Strapless bridal gown finely composed in ruffled ivory tulle over smooth satin with a sweetheart neckline, pleated bodice and memorable, floor-sweeping mermaid skirt with abbreviated train. Includes a removable, black ribbon sash adorned with fabric roses.
I really wish there were dresses like this when I got married. Talk about a gorgeous glam dress. What is even better, the sale price is $299.99 from White House Black Market online only. I want to buy this dress just because it is so Â beautiful.
As Spring is finally approaching, we can now finally start to put the dark hues of our wardrobes away and bring in the new season with brighter, cheerier colors. For this yearâ€™s Spring, the color of choice is not pastels or bright pinks, but it is actually white: simple, timeless, and striking. Now, you may be thinking that white dresses in Spring seem very â€œtea party,â€ or â€œcountry club.â€ Contrary to this notion, white dresses will actually pose a stylish threat this season. Although you may have some white dresses already hanging in your closet, take a look at these five options that give a new spin on the classic white dress.
The first is the Theyskens’ Theory Dystie DressÂ available for $695. Itâ€™s a metallic tweed dress with a scoop neck that slightly flares at the waist creating a few subtle pleats. The tweed texture and high neckline give it an elegant twist that is quite different than your average white shift dress.
The next is theÂ Diane von Furstenberg Leeandra Flower Lace Dress Â available for $425. The long sleeves and semi-masculine collar provide a nice balance to the large lace pattern overlay that creates a sense of femininity.
The next style of white dress for the upcoming season is one like the Nellie Partow Ava DressÂ available for $845 that features a drop waist with side cutouts, creating a fabulous silhouette. The exposed seam on the waist provides the just enough trendiness and shape.
The Beyond Vintage V Neck Lace Batwing DressÂ available for $249 is one of my favorite new styles of white dresses for Spring and we should be seeing a lot like these for the upcoming season. The scalloped lace edges on the dress make it have a gorgeous hemline and the dainty yet billowy sleeves are complimentary on any figure. It is sweet and sophisticated all in one. The last white dress grabs a new take on the traditional white goddess dresses that we have gotten so used to seeing in the warmer months.
The BCBGMAXAZRIA Magdalena Gown Â available for $348 gives an almost casual chicness to the idea of a floor length white dress. Its sheer mesh cutouts at the neck and on the sides give it just the right amount of sex appeal while still allowing it to maintain its classy nature. These five different styles and takes on the traditional white Spring dress will almost certainly be seen on the trendiest fashionistas and most glamorous celebrities who know how to spot a staple item of clothing that has been reinstituted as a unique fashion treasure.
Nothing says summer more than crisp white cotton tops, shorts, pants, and dresses. White means summer. White means Memorial Day. White means 4th of July. It is clambake time, beach time, bbq, and vacation time. When you are invited to those summer events make sure you have the right white summer dress essentials. Here are a few of my favorites.
I like the Velvet Pippa Dress because it is a light little number that can be worn under a denim button up shirt for a stroll on the beach. The Riller & Fount Athens Draped Mini Dress is a great piece because it is made of micromodal so it is comfortable, but has that beautiful cowl drape so that it can go from day to night with just a change of shoes and jewerly. This is a must take on vacation dress. For a dressier occasion, the Thakoon Thakoon Addition Sleeveless Smocked Dress is fabulous for a baby shower, graduation, or afternoon tea.
