Allen Schwartz Favorites!

I imagine this lace party dress (ABS Allen Schwartz) worn by a tall, slender ingenue at a garden tea party in England. This cream colored piece is innocent and sweet, but I imagine the girl wearing it to be daring and adventurous. She'd be willing to wear this dress with a pair of killer ankle boots.

I love this look! An adorable bow and a high waisted, pleated skirt? Ooh, too cute. This is the ABS by Allen Schwartz Pleated Paper Bag Skirt- a curious name for such a classy piece. ($155.00)
ABS by Allen Schwartz Strapless Ombré Gown. Chiffon and silk = beautiful. The draped, brown fabric detail just completes the dress. The back of the gown is gorgeous as well with the brown and cream colors blending.
What a gorgeous "ice princess" dress. ABS by Allen Schwartz Ombré Silk Dress. This silk dress is so cool and chill. I love the halter straps and the rhinestone decor. The back of the dress exposes half of the back, stopping at the middle. I'd wear this to a nice dinner... perhaps on a cruise!
ABS by Allen Schwartz Grecian Gown in a "watermelon" or hot pink color. I love the wrapped style of the bodice in the front because it is elegant. This is a beautiful dress. Grecian (another word for Greek) inspired.
Playful and fun- romantic even. Imagine: the young, glowing girl (obviously because she used body shimmer powder) running through the garden at night, with her lover following softly behind, calling for her... An embellished, silk party dress in "Iris" or lavender. I would wear this in a heart beat! The embroidering is just amazing and it adds the perfect amount of pretty detail to complete the dress. ABS by Allen Schwartz Embellished Silk Party Dress, $348.00. (use the dress, not the price, to inspire future purchases.)
