This week I had an impulse to buy a gown. I don’t have any place to wear it but I have the strongest desire not only to dress up but to fully gala. With no exaggeration, I spent at least 10 hours scrolling through dresses
The exercise was quite useful. I confirmed that most formal gowns are horrendously ugly. I also found myself gravitating to the same designers that I have always loved. As a matter of fact, any dress I’ve ever wanted I already own or considered buy and would be happy if I did. If you hit the jump I posted pictures of dresses that haunt my dress-up dreams. Some of my current favorites are Toni Maticevski, Brandon Maxwell, Alexandre Vauthier, Mohammed Ashi (Ashi Studio), and Delpozo. Of course, there’s lots of vintage inspiration too.
Now, I just need to figure out is where to wear this said gown. Will it be La Grenouille, Le Bernardin, Indochine or Mansion Diner?
Moving on to this week’s sales, I must admit to possibly overindulging. I leaped when I notice that the exact color of the exact Bottega bag I wanted was about 30% off what it costs locally. As a matter of fact, TheDoubleF has lots of new season designer items priced lower than in the US and you can save an additional 10% off with the code WELCOME10. This mini Jodie in aqua is a find at $1300 from $1800 US. You can click here to see all of our favorite finds.
