^Oh I love both dresses. I actually think I like the dark, green 'light' one the most (and that's saying something as I've been crazy about the white landscape print for awhile).

I'm considering getting these old sneaker hybrids, (have been for quite some time) but I'm not sure about the size. In general I'm in between sizes, and the available pair is the smaller size. Anyone's got any experience?

^Bummer. That's what I thought.
So half a size up would probably fit? I'll keep looking for a pair in that size then.
But thanks for the feedback

tinetush, can you try them on and return if necessary? worst case is they might be narrow but if length is the issue and you are comfortable going barefoot in them, worth a try. i love the look of the sneaker/shoe hybrid and they are so hard to find new.

i started a dries run this spring, the black and white trees print on the pants clicked when i saw them, and these i will wear often, they are the right balance of print, textile and a cropped cut. the tote makes me feel like i am in the forest, feeling the warmth of the suns rays...so its my summer bag.

selfridges opened a boutique for Dries. the pictures are from the Dries Van Noten website.

So has anyone bought anything from the current season? I was rather in love with all the plaid shirts, but I fell *hard* for this outfit ... ended up ordering both the cape jacket and skirt

it comes in a denim jacket version too and with beading. super nice choices tourist. that black floral skirt is pretty dreamy on you as are the black slingbacks. i can only imagine how hard it must have been to leave without an armload...i've been back twice already to see it. i tried a black top on with a cinched waist, the print of your skirt on the back and gathering down along the front, it was in the same vein as the ivory/blue/red plaid dress seen on the runway but having already bought 4 pieces i couldnt bring myself to empty anymore of the piggy bank...just yet. i need to breath and regroup because so much is so special it would be easy to go overboard (idk maybe i already have...)

the darker plaids and the small check sent me over the edge.
did you see any of the pieces in the smokey grey floral in sheer silk? its another beautiful print this season.

tending towards darker colors i picked up:
a scarf with black/white check and smokey grey flowers
the check slingbacks
trousers with brown quilted floral front and burgundy/navy plaid back back
two tops one a metallic tunic and the other a plaid sheer short sleeve only in cotton not the crunchier silk (i found those fit huge and very long for a petite frame)

btw, is that a Dries flagship?
enjoy your new clothes, you look beautiful in them.

thanks soft and lucky!
lucky - that's actually not a picture of me but from a store's blog (I posted a link above). I fell in love with the outfit and tracked down the 2 pieces. The stores near me have been rather depleted, I think there's not a plaid shirt to be found anywhere! Seems like the collection is selling really well. I did try the sheer silk plaid shirt (the crunchy one, like you said), and though it's lovely, it wasn't for me. I really liked that sheer cotton, it seems really airy. The floral prints this season are great, I've seen the smokey greys, they are so beautiful, not too sweet. Your picks sound dreamy, I'd love to see a picture of the tunic and plaid shirt!

I also got a very simple oversized grey vneck cashmere sweater and a pair of leopard print flat sandals. I'm very much "done" despite wanting a lot more.

i'll take some pics this weekend and you too when they arrive...
i actually have two of the same tunic since i decided to keep the smaller size...this is what Dries does to me, he makes my head spin...in a good way.

i saw that sweater and must give you a nod for getting it because it sets off the whole tone so well, and his knits are meant to last a lifetime.

I'd love to see both of your recent purchases

I have not really been taken with this season's pieces...So far only bought one dress and have two pairs of shoes on my shopping list (the crocodile wedges and checked pumps). I am also debating the cape in the sweater-esque material.

Probably a good thing that I don't have much in mind this season...I'm slowly running out of space for my Dries collection .

I also bought these two skirts, this week ...

Kimair,
I did, and have worn then quite a few times already. Truthfully didn't expect to like them as much as I did until I put them on...but, they did fit slimmer than Dries usually does, I went up a size....so def try them on. Btw, have you tried the silk pajama pants? I wonder if they are really long?
