    Aww. Don't they look soooo cute? Actress Fabianne Gstottenmayr, Z Berg from The Like, Claire Acey of Nightmare & The Cat, and a bevy of other rosy-cheeked L.A. girls are just darling modeling rompers and baby-doll dresses from Elkin's spring '12 collection by Brit and Kara Smith. But don't be fooled by the first appearances. Elkin isn't doing sugar and spice this season. Their all-American inspiration wasn't the innocent farm girl of decades past, but the ladies of the brothels and bordellos not-so-innocent farm boys used to visit. That's why the checked dress on Natalie Love goes that extra inch up the thigh and stylist stylist Djuna Bel's sunny plaid number hugs her just so. Hey, just because a lady is just a lil' bit dirty, doesn't mean she can't be adorable too.

    Check out the slideshow, and watch the video lookbook below, full of L.A.'s dirtiest coolest gals.
