If you really want it, they are also at Endless, but they're $110. :-( I agree though, they are beautiful!

Oops, forgot to mention-they are the "Seychelles Mamie Bootie"

Budgetbabe you read my mind! i have been soo obsessed with scalloped detailing lately especially the shorts! so gorgeous. emily from cupcakes and cashmere wore these

but they are quite pricey - especially if you take into account international shipping

i would suggest DIY-

or etsy

also forever21 has a scalloped short but it's quite unattractive.

I love the Forever 21 dress! I can't believe how cheap it is, definately looks more expensive. Hopefully more stores will continue on with the affordable philosophy of stores like Forever 21. Here's a great article about the new retail business strategies:

I've seen scalloped shorts lately on other bloggers and now it's been stuck in my mind! It's such a sweet, whimsical detail that really brings to mind warm afternoons lazing under a tree.
