Ehh they're okay. I'm not in love with every single one of them. I like the D&G one paired with the jacket...the simple jacket kind of balances it out and makes it wearable.

i noticed this as well..
good trendspotting saann..

i can't say i'm really digging the idea though
or the execution for that matter..

i actually like some of the etro, and i'm into things with a bit of quirkiness but a lot of this sort of thing just tends to be too loud or messy-looking imo..

kind of a boho/hippie, patchwork, homemade thing that looks too "earthy" for me, if that makes sense...

I second that. I really like it at Etro as well.
Maybe because it reminds me quite a bit of Balenciaga

Most of the rest though, does look a bit too boho/hippie-ish for my liking. It's too 'fluffy' and all over the place..

To be honest, am liking this trend.

Most of the dresses don't look good though. I like the D&G dress (2nd from last, in the 1st post), the first Oscar de la renta dress, and the first three etro dresses.

Agree! Etro was the worst. Such a terrible, cheap rip-off of Balenciaga.
