Love It or Leave It: Isaac Mizrahi for Target Pleated Garden Dress

Isaac Mizrahi for Target Pleated Garden Dress features discreet pockets and a perfect price. $39.99 at and in stores.

Okay, ladies. We're torn over this dress by Isaac. Is it an adorable, floral 50's throwback? Or does it evoke the unsavory curtain frocks that Maria (played by the lovely Julie Andrews) made for the von Trapp girls in The Sound of Music? You gotta admit, she was being pretty resourceful, but we try to avoid draping ourselves in upholstery.
What do you think—love it or leave it?

Summer 2007 Fashion Trend: Bold Prints

Bold prints play up the season's vintage, deco, mod, floral, geometric, and folk aesthetics. Playfully positioned on feminine babydolls, easy swing tops, short dresses, empire waist and trapeze frocks, they're proof that fashion's fun side is here to stay. Wear this trend if you're feeling daring and a tad cheeky.
