The Great Breath Of All Things Spring Upon The Air

Last September I dropped by the Family Affairs studio while I was in New York and Nina (the designer) let me see her fall collection and preview some of her Spring/Summer 2011 pieces. Now her collection is on the site and I couldn't be happier to get my hands on the perfect chambray dress I tried on in her studio more than six months ago. This outfit is the epitome of how I would like to dress all spring and summer. Why aren't I attending any festivals? I hear that flower crowns are quite acceptable at them...

  5. I'm a closet crown lover--one natural flower is the bravest I've ever been. The dress is really cute-I love the hint of sleeves. The heels are wicked in a good way.

  6. What a charming video clip! You look like an adorable fairy with the floral crown and that super gorgeous chambray dress. My eye couldn't help being drawn to those Seychelles heels, too.

  13. I have a question about the dress. I've been eyeing it up no end on the website, but I'm wondering how "chambray" it is. Is it really denim-y, or more of a light blue cotton. I know that's a bit of a fine distinction, but I find chambray often has this slight shine which I'm not too fond of, but the dress looks more regular cotton to me....

  14. @Vica...red? I mean, I haven't dyed my hair in months and when I did was a demi (which fades out), so this pretty much my natural color.

  15. @Emily, it's a cotton; also listed on Modcloth too http://www.modcloth.com/Womens/Dresses/-Crystalline-Sky-Dress

  16. pretty! and wow, those shoes are something else.

  17. Oh, wow. This look is so dreamy and pretty...I saw that dress on ModCloth and have been wanting it ever since. When I was looking at pics of it on ModCloth it looked like it might fit kinda funny...does it? How do you like it?

  18. @Maria E., I love it, but I love all my Family Affairs pieces, so I'm biased. :) it is loose in the waist and low-cut, but those are intentional design features; it's to make a more doll-like silhouette. I don't think it's a "funny" fit and personally find it really comfy. :)

  32. You look like a spring fairy. I wish the weather at my house was warm enough to dress like you. :)

  33. This look is so perfect for Spring! You look so darling. I love the light blue color and structure of the dress. Those shoes are absolutely adorable! I pondered whether or not I should get them. I decided against it. Now I'm a little regretful, seeing as they look fabulous on! And I of course love your floral headband.
