Considering I'm usually a girl who goes for things with as many bells and whistles on as possible, it still surprises me how much I've fallen for Phillip Lim. The 3.1 Phillip Lim line is reliably subtle, laid-back and simple, with two-tone prints, crisp white cottons and simple shapes. But somehow it draws me in. Perhaps it because - though classic - the signature dresses have a quirky girly quality (very Zooey Deschanel) that appeals to the little girl in me. Sometimes less is more.
