SARAH SEVEN COLLECTION PREMIERE | “Mrs Black” | Plus, a Sarah Seven Giveaway is coming. Nope, not kidding.

{You’re a purty dress, aren’t you.  Yes you are!  Yes you are a purty dress!  Coocheecoocheecoo!}

Happy Friday, friendlies!  Are you sitting down?  … Have you called over your coworkers yet?  Go ahead, go do that.  I’ll give you a few seconds to round them up.  Got ‘em?  Great.  Ok, now have you called your mama?  No?  You’re gonna wanna go do that.  Hurry up, though.  … Everyone’s waiting.

Ok… all set?  Yep?  Mom’s on the phone?  AWESOME.

… Have you called your sist-ok I’ll shut up.

Up first on the agenda, it is my sincere pleasure to introduce to your eyeballs, for the first time ever…. Sarah Seven‘s Fall 2011 Ready To Wear Collection, entitled, “Mrs Black.”

Sarah shot me an email yesterday with the ostensibly innocent subject line, “just wanted to show you :)” – and all of this insane awesomeness was inside.  Ohhh, Sarah.  You coy little devil, you.  It felt like my own little fashion shock and awe campaign.  When I have a baby one day, I think that’s how I’ll subject title the first ever images of my ultrasound when I send them to extended family to announce the news of my pregnancy.  Because OHMYGAAHHHWHATANUNDERSTATEMENT.

Many of these fanciful frocks look like the perfect bridesmaid dresses…

… rehearsal dinner dresses…

And a few feel ideal for a haute night out… or a hot night in.  *wink wink nudge nudge*

… But one thing’s for sure.  Sarah’s still bringing it.  She understands the feminine silhouette like few others, and I’ll have you know that I gasped audibly when I caught sight of like, half of these looks yesterday.  They’ve got that BOOM BOOM POW.

Hello, my precious.  You’re the black version of my beloved Swiss Dot, aren’t you?  Yes you are!  And I love you so much!

P.S. – Check out those headbands. ↴

And check out that Hoot necklace!  ADORBS. ↴

↑ I’m dying.  I’m dead.

Sarah Seven’s Fall 2011 Ready To Wear Collection will be available for immediate purchase late summer.  So start falling in love, and try to hold on ’til then.  I know it feels like a long time, but I know you caaan dooo eeeeeet.

… FYI, I find that Nutella helps pass the time.

And now, for the second item of business…

★ Sarah had this fun idea to do a dress giveaway for Knotty readers.  So… who’s excited?

    WOW! May participants across the Atlantic (meaning…the ocean) enter the giveaway too?? I HEART these dresses you’ve posted and fell in love with some of them (the pink one with the black lace hit me straight trough the heart…).
    I don’t think we do those rehearsal dinners you girls are talking about around here (or at least never heard of them) but if it means I can cry for one of these beauties, we can arrange that too ;)
