Monique Lhuillier Spring 2011 RTW

While I so enjoy being casual in comfy jeans and cozy sweaters - there is nothing I love more than an evening wear line. Evening wear always reminds me of when my parents would go out to fabulous parties or work events, getting dressed up in glamorous pieces. Monique Lhuillier's Spring 2011 line was just that - glamorous shimmery evening wear. Flirty dresses and tailored pants kept this line extremely feminine. Of course there were her signature gowns - always a fav. Although a color palette of metallic reds, pinks, golds and creams were mainly used, Lhuillier also added quite a few prints throughout the collection. There were few surprise elements thrown in like a bright green gown and a blue ruffled floor length dress. I'd love throw a few pieces in my closet for that imaginary ball I might go to someday (Cinderella style of course!) Here are a few pieces:

  
Never underestimate a tailored pant look for your next date night. Just keep your top feminine and simple. Love the glitter bodice on the second look.

  
Two of the lines shorter sexy dresses. Cutouts will still be seen through Spring which is a fantastic play on showing more skin. Can I have that feathered cape on the gold look please?

  
One of the gorgeous cherry blossom prints used through out the collection. I love the stunning blue color of this dress and the ombre effect from top to bottom. Dying!
