extra bonus tip: Indians refer to the paisley shape as "mango-shaped" because immature mangos are that same teardrop-with-the-top-pulled-over.

I love paisley print. But I have yet to buy a nice dress like that one in the picture.. BTW: Paisley is also the hometown of Paolo Nutini, whose CD These Streets I listen to all the time. If you don't know him, check him out, he not only has an amazing voice, but is extremely cute, too.

Not normally a fan of paisley especially in a dress form, BUT I happen to think this is exceptionally darling. The only thing different that I would change is bringing the hem-line down about an inch or 2 more.
