Dress Love. How many is too many?

I love my dresses, and in reality – I wear them much more often than I wear pants.  Dresses are so easy and comfortable for me, and I often think they are the most flattering on my body type.

I just counted how many dresses I have and I’m almost embarrassed to say…  so I’m not going to – but I will give you the categories:

1. summer dresses – consisting of light fabric, sleeveless, and often colorful or print

2. professional / work dresses – more conservative and structured

3. fun / going-out dresses – typically short in length, flirty and sexy shape

4. cocktail / event dresses – elegant, dressy dresses for theater and fancy nights out

SUMMER:

S6304434 S6305130S6305381S6302851

PROFESSIONAL:

56 11892  S630117563683648S6303099S6304344S6303238S6304800S6303263S6302515S6301856 

JUST 4 FUN:

I think you love dresses as much as I do! I'll bet I have around what you do, and most of them have been purchased within the last two years.

I too prefer dresses and skirts to pants, but for weather reasons a lot of the time I have to wear trousers (boooo)

I LOVE the summer dress with the butterfly on!! And all of your "fun" dresses are simply gorgeous :D

xXx

Beatrice said...

Hey, what about a cocktail LBD? ;)

Rachael said...

No such thing as too many!! I love 'em all, esp. the blue Joanesque number.

Londyn said...

Beatrice - yep, I have about 5 cocktail LBD's!

I love color, so I don't wear black a ton - but they are timeless, so a girl has got to have at least a couple in her closet :)

Corie said...

I love dresses too! It's about what you feel good in.

Julia said...

What a fun post! I love looking at all your dresses. I'm constantly giving away dresses because I have so many....btw I love you with the dark little bob. Super chic!

God's Favorite Shoes! said...

I much rather dresses too. I very rarely wear pants...if they aren't leggings.

Dresses flatter me the best and I feel more comfortable.

kateohkatie said...

GORGEOUS dresses - each and every one of them! :-) I wish I had as many as you.

They're so flattering to your figure - I think it's interesting how many different shapes of dresses you wear, and how each one looks amazing. I'm jealous!

Healthy and Homemade said...

JEALOUS!!! I always want more dresses, the funny thing is I usually only wear them during Winter or maybe Fall because I hate my white legs and I can cover them up with tights when it's colder!!

I just bought a navy sequin dress from H&M today, muahahaha =D

Tanya said...

It is NEVER TOO MANY!

I love dresses.

My favourite are the cobalt blue and purple dresses from your Professional line.

I need more. MORE DRESSES!

Sal said...

That's an enviable dress collection, for sure! My closet is bursting with dresses, too ... yikes!

Mishy said...

She's Dressing Up said...

You can never have too many dresses, and you have some gorgeous ones!

Cammila said...

Hooray for dress love! I'm totally with you -- a dress for every season, mood, moment....;)

Kasmira said...

I heartily approve of your dress collection!

You've got me beat! I'm jealous.

La Historiadora de Moda said...

This is a fabulous collection of dresses! I have a wardrobe full of dresses and skirts, too. I tend to wear the far more than I do pants.

fromsneakerstostilettos said...

I love them.... I am also jealous of the variety and collection. I should buy more just for fun dresses. If I can't also wear it to work in some manner I usually don't buy it and I think that I should break out of that pattern a little bit.

Cute, cute, cute, and I really enjoyed seeing your different hairstyles.

Kristen said...

Fabulous collection, and I love the 4 categories! I may have to organize mine like that too...

CherrybLossomgirL said...

Katelyn said...

I know you said you won't tell your dress count number, but I'd still like to know :) You might make a dress junkie like myself not feel so guilty! :)

Londyn said...

Okay Katelyn.....just for you - I stopped counting @ 75...

Katelyn said...

LOL :) That's awesome! Be proud...I'm right there with you!

Mets GirLL said...

What I would give to raid your closet!!

Roxie said...

I loved looking at all those dresses... and your hairstyles too. How fun!

Anonymous said...

WOW, those dresses are fantastic.
I like to wear dresses, I loved the hair styles also.

OMG how many wonderful dresses you have Londyn. You are a dress and skirt girl, a girly girl after my heart!! OK so you still don't know me well but my weakness is DRESSES. I am a little embarrased to admit it but I own about 175-200 of them and I even got rid of at least 20-30 dresses this year. I'm ALWAYS on the look out for a great dress, whatever the occassion is. I find my best, nicest, cocktail dresses at bebe, Express, The Limited and White House Black Market. I also have several from Banana Republic, Lord & Taylor, Macy's, NY & Co, and Martin & Ossa. As a matter of fact I am wearing a wool gray/beige sweater dress with short sleeves, today at work. I am adding some cocktail dresses and some wintery/cool weather dresses before this year is over. I have an album featuring some of my dresses I've worn so far, in Facebook. If you have a Facebook, I'd love to have you as my friend there and we can communicate better, Dear Londyn. =)

Now to your dresses. You have posted a ton in this blog as well as in other posts. I will mention my top 15 Most Favorites from your wardrobe. From the Summer Group I love the 3 printed ones, especially the Butterfly one & the Lavender/Baby Blue Halter Dress. I love your proffessional dresses, ALL of them especially the top 2 printed dresses with the cowl necklines; the cobalt blue short-sleeve dress; the teal 3/4 sleeve ruched dress (which looks great with that pink belt); the turquoise bow-tie-neck one; the fitted dark purple/indigo belted one (which looks great with the pointy leopard pumps); the black retro dress with the little flairy skirt (which looks permanently divine with the retro gray cropped jacket); the pastel beige shirtdress with the wide patent leather red belt; and the pretty baby-blue & white short-sleeve dress. From the Just 4 Fun group I love the top 3 dresses: the cherry print one, the blue animal-print short-sleeve one and the pink/black checkered dress. I also LOVE the short ruffly blue-printed dress; both of the zebra-print beige/brown dresses; the Ikat print Black/White dress; and the super stylish yet retro 3/4 sleeve satiny beige animal-print dress with a cowlneck which I LOOOOOOOVVVVVEEEE. I also like both cocktail dresses especially the teal one. Special mention goes to this pretty dress (don't remember the color) but you have worn it to a wedding you were invited at and the Black/White geo print dress from a few posts back (below) that you wore with the citrusy bursts of accessories. All in all you have a great collection of shoes, dresses & purses. Lovely Girl.
