Ballet-inspired smock dress
Some people may disagree, but I love this refreshing smock dress by Australian designer Marnie Skillings. Take note of the colorful print across the front depicting ballerinas dancing on a stage, and the top encrusted with colored beads. The short sleeves and demure neckline keep this silk dress casual, but the unique, vintage-y print and heavy beading make it appropriate for evening. Even if you're divided on its fashion appeal, you've got to admit there's something fun, romantic, and totally whimsical about this dress. Plus, it puts a new spin on ballet-inspired outfit.
