“Feel like a woman, wear a dress!”
And so I wore a dress.
The quote was the first thing you read when you walk into the colorful kaleidoscope of prints on the wall for the Diane Von Furstenberg’s Journey of a Dress exhibit. Too much of a cliché if I wore a DVF dress, so I wore my favorite “nun” dress. Obviously un-nunly-like due to the short length and the shoulder cut-outs, but doesn’t it kind of remind you of a nun habit? When buying dresses, it’s important to find one with features and details that are interesting. In this case, I really like the simple black and white with the cut-outs on the shoulders. It’s form fitting and surprisingly comfortable. My rule of thumb for shopping dresses, is to avoid buying ones too similar to each other. And always better to go a size bigger than a size too small because you can always tailor/alter for a better fit. But if it’s on sale?? Well, then all the rules goes out the window. Ha.
This exhibit was like walking into a candy store of many beautiful dresses. A constant temptation of wanting to take these dresses off the mannequins and stow it right on home straight into my closet. Happy to say I didn’t make it on to the 5pm evening news;)
The lighting inside was not the ideal setting for taking photos. But apparently it doesn’t matter because you will witness full-on fashion shoots happening right there on the spot...literally, on the ground, against the walls. I actually witnessed a girl rolling around on the printed floor in a bikini! Quite entertaining might I add. But I had fun too. And you should too.
The exhibit is showing January 11 - April 1 (now extended thru 5/1/14!) If you are in the LA area, you must check it out. Oh, did I mention it’s free?? All more the reason to go:) xx
