Fabulous Friday: My Diane Dress


This post is also available in: Nederlands (Dutch)

I have always been a fan of Diane von Furstenberg. Selfmade power woman, extremely special and beautiful and an icon. She became famous for the wrap dress, that suits (almost) every woman and was the foundation of her fashion empire (www.dvf.com).

I still remember ordering this on Ebay. I had been searching for weeks, for a new Diane dress I liked and I could afford (I forgot the import duties and taxes though…)

Diane dresses does not come cheap, as all wrap dresses are made of a silk jersey, that does not crease. They are the ideal travel dress. As I workout a lot, and have broader shoulders than average, I have to wear a vest top under it unfortunately. And the fabric has to be dry cleaned, if washed in water, it can loose the elasticitity.

Still, I get that luxury feeling when wearing it. I feel elegant and beautiful, and a bit like Diane…

Coco Chanel always stated you cannot buy style, and she is right. But I still feel, like a bought something stylish, someting wonderful, that makes me feel special. And maybe that is what fashion is all about…
