About a Dress

3.1 Phillip Lim dress. Calvin Klein belt (worn backward). Vintage coin & enamel bracelets. Delman shoes.
This magnificent specimen of a dress is as close as I’m getting to couture (for now); it’s a stand-up-&-shout piece requiring only the odd trinket: a belt worn the wrong way & two bracelets. Sometimes I wonder which to prefer: a fancy frock all alone or a plain one ornamented with extras. If forced to choose a signature style, I'd be fancy forever: it makes life easy in summertime, which is when I want the least amount of stuff on my skin. Glamour girls bedazzle their bikinis with jewels, but I often opt for just the suit - & perhaps some blackout sunnies & a straw purse (I'm talking to you, Chanel 'Coco Country' bag for spring 2010)… Some accessories are a prelude to couture.
