So I'm sure that by now you're aware of the fact that my best friend and former roommate designs a Fabulous clothing line called Elizabeth Olliver.
I am very proud to be the first blogger to present her Fall 2011 Line.
If you'll recall, I had my own namesake dress in the Spring 2011 line.
I would have described her Spring line as a little something for everyone, but with a classic element.
I would have considered many of the dresses to be something that Jackie Kennedy would have worn in the 1960's.
Prim, Proper, FABULOUS.

Fall 2011 is Jackie Kennedy in modern times.
Classic, yet edgy.
Think Jackie meets Diane von Furstenberg meets Ports 1961
having a party on Net-a-Porter.
Elizabeth was very inspired by the feminine movement in the 1960's and 1970's.
Women weren't your typical 1950's housewives anymore. They were independent and confident, and they needed the clothing to match their new outlook.
And without further adieu.....
My faves from the Fall 2011 Collection
(Named for none other than Paloma Contreras, Editor and Chief of High Gloss Magazine
and writer of La Dolce Vita Blog)
I LOVE this gown. I don't know about you, but shopping for a formal dress is always hell for me.
I can never find anything that is Simple yet Chic. Fabulous yet Understated.
The Paloma pretty much does it all.
Have you ever seen a more chic dress?
All of Elizabeth's designs are named for people that inspire her in everyday life.
Visit Elizabeth Olliver to view the rest of this Fabulous Fall Collection and to start your Pre-Orders.
And because Elizabeth wants you to partake in her fab designs sooner than later, when you Pre-Order you get $40 off your purchase.
You can use the savings for the champagne you'll sip while wearing your dress.
So, to recap,
You can learn more about the fabulous life and times of my friend Elizabeth,
by visiting her blog.
