Recently spotted: Mischa Barton wearing a dress so fun and funky that it's nearly impossible to take your eyes off of it (left). Is it the vintage cut? The '60s color palette? The intricate stone details across the top of the bodice? Who knows. There's just something about this dress that is outstanding.

So, what's the deal with this hot little minidress? It's crafted from 100% chalfis polyester. Yes, you read that right: polyester. When's the last time you saw a red carpet dress made out of polyester? Admittedly, this isn't your mother's poly. According to the Fabric Dictionary, Chalfis is one of the softest fabrics made. It is a lightweight, plain-weave fabric that can be made from wool, cotton, or man made fabrics. Very unique. I'm sensing that Karta is just beginning it's reign as hot label on the rise.
