I’ve long been a fan of Diane Von Furstenburg. Like a before she resurrected the brand fan. Yes, I’m old enough to remember the original incarnation. Her vintage print and solid color wrap dresses are like crack made out of flour and sugar, dusted with cinnamon and served with fresh coffee to me. Whoops. That sounds more like a trip to Dunkin Donuts.
It may be one of the reasons I had a
complete and total mini wardrobe meltdown in Los Angeles earlier this year. The only thing that got me through it was a retail therapy session with Magical Marielle of the West Hollywood DVF location. Yep. She’s so good at her job that she’s merits a title. I went in feeling frumpy and came out feeling fabulous. I made it through the rest of the trip feeling like myself, not the person I packed my suitcase for. I have no idea who I was trying to be, but it wasn’t Me.
Diane described the inspiration for her collection: “With the polish of a princess and the heart of a gypsy, she is an aristocratic dreamer.” That sounds just like me, without the
princess polish part.
Anyway…I found a few things from DVF’s Spring 2013 show that I want to wear now and in the afterlife. I also found the knockers I want for my front door:
Those earrings are a little large for my lobes, they are bold and beautiful, but it’s the color and cut of the blouse and pants that caught my attention. I can’t with the sheer section on the top, I wouldn’t make you look at that, but if it were in the back instead I could, I could, I would.
I might be stealing a phrase here, but just “Say Yes To The Dress:”
It is stunning! I would walk and walk and walk and maybe even run in this dress, because it’s movement deserves to be seen. I love that it comes with it’s own necklace. All I need is a pair of those Wonder Woman cuffs and I’ll be the most glamorous crime fighter, ever!
This dress? Lord, yes!
Head-to-toe complete look perfection. Enough said!
Green Goddess Love:
The draping is exquisite, the fabric is fluid and the color is one of my favorites. I think it would look great with my soon to be silver hair, plus the green will really pop if everyone else in heaven is wearing white. (I say that like I’m going.)
After absolutely no handwringing at all, I’ve decided that this is The One. It was an easy decision, because this dress is so elegant and effortless:
Yep. This is it. It is a standout knockout dress. I’ll take it in turquoise, too. I’ll need a second option, just in case I wear this dress down to nubby little threads before I leave this world. It’s okay, I’m a realist. I know I won’t live forever, but it sure would be nice to look this amazeballs in the meantime!
