    Call it a case of embellishment fever, but we simply can't get enough of the trend. And, this standout piece from Stella McCartney's resort '14 collection is an absolute stunner — no ifs, ands, or buts about it. The oversized-cut, crystal-adorned frock is accented with heart, lip, and matchstick motifs, so it's essentially our ultimate Valentine's Day getup (or NYFW street-style look). Even Olivia Pope, er, Kerry Washington is onboard — which means that it's got the White House's stamp of approval, too. Okay, maybe that's pushing it, but we'd wager that even the fashion-adventurous Ms. O can appreciate the utter awesomeness of McCartney's design.

    Offset by the pastel pink, satin-twill dress, the punchy trimmings help create a playful-yet-ladylike style we love. And, it's one we've seriously considered purchasing, too. The only hitch? Well, it's priced at just under $3,000, which is a major bummer. So, we scouted a few clothes and accessories inspired by the Stella original for those of us who don't have the funds for this robe du jour. (But, if you do, it's still available here, here, here, here, here, and here in limited quantities and sizes.)

    So, readers, tell us: Are you equally obsessed with this wonderfully embellished confection? And, would you wear it? If you said yes to the latter, click ahead to shop McCartney's covetable resort wear and a few more affordable iterations, too.

Lately, it's taken nearly all our willpower not to think about sun rays, long weekends, and beach hair — from the actual beach and not a bottle. But, there's really no bigger buzzkill than hours of trying on bathing suits that epically fail to do your body justice. And, the fact is, your swimwear is probably the read
