My DVF dress in gorgeous morning sun light - of course one busy print is never enough for me, so I have added a print bag and shoes as well.
I have watched a few episodes of House of DVF - unfortunately it doesn't show as much of the inner workings of the company as I was hoping for but Diane herself is fabulous in it, always offering wonderful wisdoms to everyone around her. Yesterday I used my little gift card and bought a very pretty dress. I picked up a signed copy of her autobiography as well and have not been able to put it down - it is absolutely riveting.
There is an infectious optimism in Diane's attitude to life which is totally reflected in her clothes. Among the annoyingly self-conscious fashion people I have worked with in the past DVF was never considered the coolest brand, because being cool is about pretending to be jaded and sullen and always showing a hint of disdain your face. You simply can't do all those things in a DVF dress. DVF dresses make you smile, they make you say hello to strangers, and they make you feel unapologetically happy to be a woman.
Diane has lived an exciting life for sure, and it's super fun to read about all the people she's met and the places she has visited - but it's the life lessons that make this book so intriguing. It is honestly such a good read - I so very highly recommend you get this book - and why not buy a dress while you're at it?
