Gorgeous dresses as always. And perfect fit. (I also love the photo montage ... something about the corner of the room repeating itself makes for a very interesting montage.

Love your LBD's! You look fantastic! The houndstooth print is my fav, it's just so classic and classy! I love how the houndstooth print blends with the background. Great fabric choices for your LBD's. Nice work!

What lovely dresses-the fabrics, the fit *and* the model are all enchanting. That's a bummer on the contest dates but the dresses are so very nice and show your attention to detail and not rushing.

Absolutely gorgeous! It's a shame you missed the LBD contest but like fine wine, some things just shouldn't be rushed
