plaid & shirt dresses

L.L. Bean Signature, why do you do this to me? I know you are just playing on our dreams of running away to the woods and having trendy campfires and perfectly mismatched picnics by the lake. You are exploiting me somehow, I'm pretty sure of it. Just like those Suburu commercials that make me want to strap a kayak to the top of my car and go on a ten-week adventure trip during which I sleep outside and don't shower and eat only granola and berries.

I know they are using me, but I still love it. Love the flowy shirt dresses and the plaid. There are so many more outfits that caught my eye, but I can't find the photos online to show you. So, after you check the thermometer and see that it's hovering right below 20 degrees, check out the L.L. Bean Signature Spring 2011 video. It will either help tremendously, or really drop you to a new level of winter blues. Do as you will.

  1. I love that line - just bought some plaid shirts myself. I also bought some amazing clothes from Lands End "Canvas" collection - including an adoreable navu blue belted shirt dress and a purple and gray tartan plaid mini skirt. Check out that line if you get the chance.

  2. I love that camp shirt dress, but I know it will not fit me. Every shirt I've tried on from the Signature line gaps at the front due to my bust size. It would be so great for my Alaska cruise this spring too. Sigh.

  3. Ah, I didn't know about the Canvas collection from Lands End! It's on my list of things to check out.

    Stephanie, have you ever tried Fashion Tape? It's perfect for closing gaps on blouses, hiding straps, keeping wrap dresses closed, etc. http://www.hollywoodfashiontape.com/. Nice little trick.
