Not a DVF Wrap Dress
I think every woman who wears dresses should own a wrap dress. Made popular by Diane von Furstenberg in the 1970's, the wrap style is universally flattering on any shape, hides many flaws, and is so comfortable.
Sadly, a DVF wrap dress has yet to be in my budget, but I was very excited to find this Leota dress on sale at a local boutique. The matte jersey, fit and flare style is actually a faux-wrap - which actually works a bit better for those of us with a little more up top.
The horse print is a little bolder than I usually wear, but I thought it was fun.
Speaking of Ms. von Furstenberg, she has a new docu-series (is this what we're calling reality shows now?) on E! on Sunday nights called House of DVF. The show features ten contestants competing for a once in a lifetime chance to work with the iconic designer as her Global Brand Ambassador. We're only two episodes in, and while it can't compete with my beloved Project Runway, it does offer an interesting glimpse into the world of fashion.
Do you own a wrap dress? Are you watching House of DVF?
