We could wax poetic, historical, and pop cultural about the runway's trends and what they mean to us as women (and we do plenty of that, don't you worry), but sometimes, it's good to give our amateur Foucault skills a break and just focus on doing some plain ol' gushing — about pretty dresses!
Fashion's equivalent to a post-finals Friday spent in front of the TV with your favorite movie, an awesome dress is always a welcome sight, and doesn't require any more effort to appreciate than just "ME WANT." So, consider this slideshow your reward after a week's worth of work. You deserve it. Now, bring on the pretty!
