Dior Croisette Summer 2012 Collection

“On vacation, you can wear all the colorful and casual clothing that you like, but you must always be elegant,” said Christian Dior.

Inspired by the art de vivre of the French Riviera, the Dior Croisette Collection for Summer 2012 combines the peace of the French countryside with the splendor of Saint Tropez. These locations have always been a prolific source of inspiration for Christian Dior. From Dior’s first swimsuit collections and seaside fashion creations in the Fifties to the current Cruise Collections, the French Riviera also embodies the brand’s most daring, fresh and colorful lines today.

Take a look!

    Only thing I want is the balm still…phew! I hope my Sephora gets their Croisette display set up soon…they take quite some time getting new things in it seems!

    I wonder if the pink lip gloss is pretty opaque, it’s the only other thing that catches my eye.


  • 4/4/12 13:21 Kim:

    I like everything! Dior nail polishes are awesome; they have the best brush.

    My Sephora also seems to be slow about putting new stuff up too, Tammie. However, I did see most of these items at sephora.com this afternoon. Should I use my 15% off Chic Week coupon, for the third time, online? :)


    • 4/4/12 13:27 Tammie:

      Do it!!! Haha. I however, am not spending $50 right now (at least, not at Sephora…) even with the lip balm so I’m better off waiting. You won’t catch me paying for shipping xD


  • 4/4/12 14:13 Sarah S.:

    the starburst pattern on the palettes is so old-fashioned (in a great way)!


  • 4/4/12 23:59 elle:

    I really love the second eye shadow palette! I just wish it wasn’t shimmery/glittery.


  • 4/5/12 2:21 Deb:

    I think I need the Swimming Pool Quint!


    • 4/25/12 14:32 nawi:
