Diane von Furstenberg Fall/Winter 2014 Review
So I look at this dress and I see a Georgia O’Keefe-inspired flowery effect. Which I love. Actually while I’m at it I think I am going to list all of the things I love about this dress. I love the subdued, autumnal color palette and the ballerina-esque wrap sweater (a style von Furstenberg is well-known for). I love the two ribbons that slip down from the aforementioned sweater. I love the seashell patches around the neckline. And I love love love the strappy golden shoes. I love all of these things I promise you.
Also, at the end of the show, Diane von Furstenberg made her appearance wearing a dress with a similar Georgia O’Keefe-esque print. She is the epitome of lovely.
This dress reminds me of curtains. And before you assume that this is a bad thing let me assure you it most certainly is not. The fabric looks like those fancy ornate drapes that you see in mansions which lace and butlers and such. I blame the rich emerald and scarlet accents. And then there is the fantastic blue fur purse that I very much want.
Ok so by now you are probably all like Natalie you need to stop with all of your Project Runway references and whatnot but I CANT STOP ITS A PROBLEM AND MAYBE I DONT WANT TO STOP I DONT THINK I WILL. It’s just every time I see a dress with waves on it, I think of Leanne Marshall, the Season 5 Winner, and her glorious wave skirts. Actually this dress doesn’t even look like any of Leanne’s pieces, but thats ok because its just as pretty. I love the inconsistency of the pattern.
I have a maxi skirt/dress obsession that has blossomed over the course of a year. I remember being very much off the band wagon when the trend first began; now I cannot resist the boho, ankle-grazing style. I find it very elegant. And whats more, the length elongates the body and kind of makes one feel/look like a mermaid, so what’s not to love, really. I very much enjoy the symmetric wave pattern at the top of this maxi dress. Mostly because it is intricate, but also a lot because it helps exude mermaid vibes hehe.
