baby got doll

Cynthia Steffe's spring line is all sickeningly sweet gingham and eyelet (which would characteristically send me running in the opposite direction as my style is more on the Demeulemeester black side) but from the nine '60s inspired pieces offered online, I have fallen for this white pinafore dress.

Rosemary would have given up her baby for this dress.

(before it was born and turned out to be the devil, obviously)

Actually, I'm being slightly boring as the frock above is very similar to an ivory '60s shift I loved to death this past summer, but sometimes it's best to stick with what works. And the Cynthia Steffe one is shadowstriped where my older one consists of openwork over a slip. Is this enough of a difference to justify a $305 price tag? Hmmm.

* I'd like to take this one to my [imaginary] cabana too...
