The World Traveller dress is giving me the travel bug (as if I didn't already have that!) It's great that you're partnering with companies that promote fair trade :)

http://www.matatraders.com/world-traveler-dress-stamps.html

Brighton Helms said...

I didn't know about this company, but I'm really glad you have indroduced me to it because the dresses and skirts are just darling, and I love that they're a fair trade company.

It's really hard for me to choose a favorite - I really like the Fairweather dress, the Summerfest dress, and the Cape Cod dress in floal, but if I had to choose just one, I'd probably go with the Summerfest dress (houses) because the little house print is so cute and fun.

http://www.matatraders.com/shop/clothing/dresses/sailor-moon-dress.html This sailor collar dress! I feel like my broad shoulders and busty torso makes the typical twee sailor dresses unsuitable for me. But this solemn tailored number will likely set me twirling discreetly alone in elevator mirrors between floors. Aye aye!
