There is so much that's outrageous and unwearable in what passes for high fashion nowadays, but this is one of the sweetest things I've seen from Paris Fashion Week '09: a "maxi dress" by Aussie designer Collette Dinigan. There is something to be said for demure. I know I sound terribly old-fashioned, but I go in for that sort of thing.
There is a nice '20's feel to this piece. Judicious use of lace, as well. Pretty, pretty, pretty!
