Vivienne Tam Dresses

I am constantly amazed at my mom's ability to be so up to date with the latest going ons in fashion. Her latest discovery are the trendy dresses at Vivienne Tam. Surprising isn't it? I've always related her style as western with oriental influence and wouldn't exactly call it trendy. So when my mom told me she'd bought me a dress from there, I was like, what?
Luckily for me, the dresses over at Vivienne Tam seems to have gone through a revival and are much trendier than I'd imagined. The dress my mom got me was this one, except mine is black and made of a woolish material. Now to be honest, when I first saw the dress (and identified it as this one in the catalog), I didn't like it very much. It was past my knees and it has the most awkwardly positioned tie thing in the middle. That is not exactly the most flattering cut. But after playing around with it, I've tied it at the waist, such that a little puffy effect is created and is shorter, which is kind of cute with ankle boots!
This of course got me looking into the rest of the catalog and now I am lusting for more Vivienne Tam dresses! They have more simple casual (kind of shift) dresses. I especially love the grey one in the middle. The color is also so nice and wintery without being too black.

And check out those silver Mary Janes! I WANT a pair. They look so perfect in the winter with all these cute short dresses!
For something more sophisticated, there are these more polished creations. The dress on the right is my favourite! The bottom frills gives it just the right touch of girliness to the otherwise sophisticated and simple design.
Something a little more fun, there are these printed dresses. The rich silver brocade dress is so adorable! And as a side note, I really like that look on the far right (sorry about the bad scanning). Its so simple to achieve too. All I need is to go out and get myself a cute printed mini!

Who would've thought that these creations were Vivienne Tam?

I bought a vivienne tam dress last year for my high school graduation. It's champagne colored with a cute slip and a lacy overlay on top. She has some seriously cute stuff!

You're right, those dresses are a lot better than I ever expected from Vivienne! I don't think I've ever been into one of her stores before because I found their clothes in the window displays rather odd...

I recently bought a silvery-grey minidress with white designs on it. It looks very...young and cute, it's flattering, goes great with black leggings and ballet flats, AND to top it all off, I got it for ten dollars. Wow moment!
As for these dresses, I am REALLY starting to wish I hadn't gone on all those shopping binges.
I love how the models look o edgy and yet so...innocent! Unfortunately, I don't have the features to pull off that look...

Perfect dresses. I like the style of them.

Her dresses are interesting, but I definitely would not call them sexy, or even sleek. I'm sure with enough work the purple one is cute, but some of those others just aren't.
