Window Shopping: The Diane Von Furstenburg Edition

When i first started this blog, i had a page with some of my most longed for fashion loves, that page included a Kate Spade bag, a pair of Jimmy Choo's and a classic wrap dress by Diane Von Furstenburg.
That page isn't on the blog any more  and my lusting after a Kate Spade  bag and a pair of super high Jimmy Choos has long gone. However the love of the classic wrap dress and retro prints of a DVF dress still remains.
From time to time i window shop at Matches Fashion and take in some of the DVF range and dream of wearing, what is to me, the epitome of all dresses.

£162.00 sale price from £325.00


The iconic wrap dress which originates from whence she first started back in the 1970's and then relaunched with the same cut of dress in 1997. Classic, timeless pieces.
The thing i love about a wrap dress is how beautifully flattering they are for every shape. I have owned quite a lot of wrap dresses in my time, from when i was a skinny 18 year old to now 10 years later with a lot bigger *ahem* curves. With a sales price tag of £162.00 i can not tell you how tempted i am to buy one of these beautiful pieces that would become the prized possession to me in the wardrobe department. It's just one of those dresses that would be a treat to me... a nod to myself as an adult. the pat on the back, the well done you've worked hard, you deserve this... ;-)
And while we're at it, if i had an unlimited pot of funds to spend, here's how i'd accessories the wrap dress:



One day i shall own a DVF wrap dress... i truly believe if you want something enough you can make it happen... Positive Mental Attitude... right?!

Do you have a dream piece that you cyber stalk?








This is a collaboration post with www.matchesfashion.com, thank you for supporting the companies i have the opportunity to work with... off to go cyber stalk some more... meet me there?

  9. I can see why you're lusting over those dresses they are gorgeous! And so perfectly classic with a little twist in the print. I am currently been looking for some real leather boots instead of having to wear cheap boots made of chintzy material. But they are so expensive, so I totally understand your dilemma :)

  12. Thanks for your comment over on my blog. I am loving dropping by today and seeing this post on wrap dresses. I am also a big fan and love DVF. I loved the children collaboration at Gap last year but it was all a bit too girly for my boy to pull off :( Rubbish!
