A while back I purchased the Floral Fiji Dress from Ursula Dean of Modaspia. I meant to post about it earlier, but you know how that goes! I have to say I Love this dress. I wish I could own it in every color & fabric that Ursula uses, and let me tell you, the fabric she uses is of very high quality. Much of the time I feel I look rather mannish, but this dress makes me feel very feminine. It hugs your curves in the most flattering way.

I bought this Fiji dress for a friend as a gift, and Ursula and I traded for the French Tee! Come on people: this is the perfect striped tee! For $40 bucks you get Great fabric (organic cotton), a perfect fit- just long enough in the body, bracelet length sleeves, slim-fitting but not too tight. Not to mention you get to support an independent designer!

Both the dress and tee are shown in a size small above.

Twentyfive is the limited edition line that Ursula and her good friend Oami Powers of Judah Ross are collaborating on together. Oami is a brilliant designer as well, and makes the most fabulous prints. I'm still lusting after this pillow pictured below:

Uh-huh, the French Tee is awesome. I love the simplicity of Ursula's designs. They are so easy to wear. Hey, I know a band that needs a bass player....

Clare, yes, the Jade Green dress was a gift- and it fit my friend perfectly (whew!). This design is so flattering, and comfortable.

Ritva, Hello. Thank-you!!

Amber- RE: French Tee & Ursula's designs- agreed. You know I don't really know how to play. I'm a big poseur (I get sick of just standing there in photos).

Elizabeth, thanks...her stuff for Spring '11 is looking so great.

Oami, wow, thank-you!!!
