I love,love,love this look!! The white eyelet lace dress is so pretty. Eyelet lace is fabulous. I just bought a pretty blue-ish colored eyelet lace dress.

Too cute! These dresses look good on all these ladies. They look fresh and each dress has it’s own subtle personality. Love ’em!

Didn’t stylewatch already do an article on these dresses? They’re cute, but I have a feeling the rest of us normal size mortals would look like washed out whales in them.

J.Crew had the most lovely, romantic taylored eyelet sundress several years ago which they (actually carried for couple summer seasons)! It was so pretty!! I should have bought 5 of them instead of just one!! That dress was perfect for going out on a date, or going to a wedding, or to attend an art opening or to even just hang out in!! I miss that dress, something terrible! :( whaa!…he-he-he!

I think Mischa Barton looks really cute and stylish in that white dress
