Window shopping

As I've said before, I've had the shopping bug bad, but I've been making great efforts to spend as little money as possible. So here are my recent must haves (Ok, really wants.) from

Tell me this is not the sweetest dress ever. The ruffle down the front and black piping on the edges are subtle but add so much. And that color is perfect. This is a great dress for the office or a date. Sweet, yet flirty.

This is a great summer dress. The detailing on the hem and bust is so nice. It's a more sporty cut and fabric, which is made really feminine by little details like that. It would also be really cute for work or winter paired with a cardigan. 

I love the simplicity of this dress. I don't typically for an empire waist with pleating, but I think it works really well in this piece. The sleeveless/turtleneck combo is also really versatile. It seems light enough for a cooler summer day, but would be very cute with a cardigan and tights in the winter.

I am a sucker for eyelets. And for gray. Both of those points stated, I love this dress. The embroidery at the top, and eyelet details are subtle but really feminine and fun. I love the scalloped cap sleeves too, it's an unexpected detail that adds a lot.

This is a little more formal than most of the other dresses, but tell me you wouldn't wear it every chance you got. Most definitely my favorite dress, I love everything from that adorable sweetheart halter top to the beautiful yellow and black patterning on the hem. This is a perfect dress. I might have to be saving up for this one, right after I finally get that DSLR.

Speaking of cardigans, I love them too. I have a pretty serious collection, and I'm always looking out for more. I would love to know where I can get this one, because I love it, but the site it's on shows it as out of stock, and I can't seem to find it anywhere else. Grr! 

Well, it's probably for the best. It's all about saving money right now, right? The fewer temptations the better. :)

What are your thoughts? Have you had your eye on any dresses lately?
