Introducing The Larry David Dress

As I move through the world, I often feel like Larry David on the inside. But this dress, designed by voice actress/creative builder/seamstress Erin Pearce, allows you to wear your propensity for faux pas on the outside in the form of a well-tailored frock. Pretty, pretty, pretty pretty good. I’m calling it: the dress of summer.

If your inner self is shorter and a tad more self-loathing, you may want to consider Erin Pearce’s George Costanza “The Can’t Stand Ya”dress. And if a you’re not into dresses, Erin also makes vagina ashtrays and dried bugs (real ones!) dressed as characters from “Star Trek,” “Doctor Who” and “Jurassic Park.” She has something for everyone. Also, I feel like Erin and I should be friends. [Tumblr]

Awesomely Affordable: 9 White Dresses Under $100

The other day, I did a post of celeb ladies wearing white, where I told y’all how I’d been indoctrinated to believe that you shouldn’t wear white before Memorial Day or after Labor Day. But then a couple readers mentioned that they thought that the no-white prohibition ended on Easter, not Memorial Day. I did a quick poll of the office and we all think it’s Memorial Day and oh my God, I’m sure you guys don’t really care. You’re like, get to the clothes already!

Must Haves: 10 Drop-Waist Dresses

You might have noticed a recent trend of tons and tons of drop-waist dresses. Likely, designers wanted to tie their collections to “The Great Gatsby,” which was supposed to come out at the end of last year. The film still isn’t out, but collections featuring Gatsby-inspired clothes are all over. We love a drop waist dress because it picks up 1920s style without looking like you’re wearing a costume. Above, 10 of our faves.

This “pinafore dress” from Zara is reminding me of one of those old-timey bathing suits from the 1800s, which is reminding me of the episode of “Seinfeld” where Newman wears one of those bathing suits while yelling “Olly olly oxen free!” and cannonballing into a pool, which is a lovely memory, but not really an image I want my fashion choices to evoke. I’ll take a pass. [$90, Zara]
