I would love to re-create a dress exactly like this one, only make it above the knee instead of long. And I would give it a little more room in the waist because breathing is kind of necessary. And the woman wearing it is so beautiful:

Don't be mad if I start dressing like this a lot this fall and winter. I wanted to put together an outfit of some things I would actually wear (a more realistic and updated version of the photos above), so I created a set on polyvore.com. I especially love the cream dress and the beaded coin purse.
