Last month, while roaming around New York’s Meatpacking District with Peter and Audi, I ducked into the Diane von Furstenberg store to do some research. I was hesitant to believe that her deceptively plain dresses were actually magical, curve-flattering creatures that defied gravity and reality while whispering copious praise into the wearer’s ears, painting her toenails, and balancing her checkbook. It couldn’t be true.
But it was. It WAS true, people.
I tried on this dress and immediately wanted to have sex with myself. And although that meant my cardinal rule of shopping had been invoked, purchasing that dress would’ve maxed out my NYC budget, and I hadn’t hit up the Desigual store yet. So I passed.
But I will make it mine someday. And in the meantime, I might have nabbed this Laetitia dress off eBay for less than half of retail. I’m just saying it’s possible. It’s also possible that the heavy knit silk jersey fabric is warm, sumptuously soft, and rides the line between skimming and hugging curves in the most amazing way. Maybe.
And no, it didn’t snow. Shut up. That’s just … dust. Or something. And if it’s not all gone by Sunday, I’m moving to Argentina.
