I am not a huge fan of patchwork on clothing. It just reminds me too much of wearing a quilt - no offense to quilts! I am, however, a fan of maxi dresses, which is why I am torn about this J.Crew Talitha Patchwork Dress, $500, brought to my attention by SaraSmile. I love the strong silhouette of the dress but I can do without the lengthy pattern. Still, I am undecided. What about you gals?
