Katie Ermilio just keeps getting better and better. She took her signature feminine simplicity to the next level with this tightly edited and utterly drool-worthy assortment of flirty, yet sophisticated wears.

That perfect dress for a special occasion is what you can count on from Ermilio season after season. And there were plenty of those. The black and white number at left was a personal favorite. I also died over a silver-grey floor-length fishtail strapless gown with matching shawl.

Of course, you can find a gown or a cocktail dress anywhere but these are for when you actually want to feel special, and have fun. Also, an open letter to celebrity stylists: Ermilio's gowns need to have a red carpet moment.

And while we're doing open letters, here's one to department store buyers: there were also great, versatile separates, including super chic trousers, lovely bow-adorned tops and the designer's first foray into knitwear, which included two absolutely perfect subtly striped sweaters that I need to own. Also new for fall (and affordable): precious sheer polka-dotted tights and socks with a tiny little "k" at the ankle. Too cute.

In short, I wanted everything. Pretty sure I'll be dreaming about these clothes for a long time and you might too once you see them. Click through for images, shot by Jamie Beck.
