Drowning my (mild) sorrows a bit this morning because I’m headed to New York City in early April—-but it’s a day trip for a very neat conference—- 10 blocks away from FIT—so I don’t think—-although I may try—but I don’t think I’ll be able to get over there. 🙁
I wonder how long lunch will be?? 😉
To soothe my disappointment, I think this would be a good time for some more brochure!
I work with dresses like this (and fabric originally used in these 18th century dresses) at work, but it is so nice to be able to enjoy this dress on on a mannequin, instead of being the cataloguer who is struggling to unpack it (and repack it—which takes three times as long!!) from a storage box so I can take a closer look and photograph it!! Such gorgeous silk!
I haven’t stopped to count, but this dress has made it to this website at least four times? But you don’t mind, right? I *LOVE* this dress. I would wear it everywhere. To work, to Starbucks, out to the curb to get the mail…to Target to pick up laundry detergent…just simply everywhere. And with the fancy bodice? You don’t even need to figure out jewelry.
Practical Prada! This would probably be better for running that errand at Target. The colorful print on this is just lovely! This would definitely be for a fairy who is trying not to call attention to herself—and who is annoyed to have to run errands with her sister, the idiot looking for the laundry detergent aisle who won’t stop swirling in that flowing Marchesa gown! This is actually something that I could imagine happening in Target with my own big sister…she’d be the practical one in Prada, of course.
