Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Profile for Lily Q

In the meantime, don’t wait for designers to tell you how to get movie-ready, do it yourself with Alice-y looks you can buy right now. [Style.com]
“Project Runway” returned this week with a typical cast of over-dramatic characters trotting pretty little dresses (and some hot messes) down the runway.

Lewis Cho’s incredibly adorable geometric look book has inspired us to get a little more adventurous when it comes to our printed matter. We absolutely love this silky dress, but it’s definitely not the only option. [$194, Best Behavior, Pixie Market]
