Green and DVF
Having been a child of the sixties, I need many tools to jog my memory nowadays. Sketching is one of those tools-- and when I get one of those visions of the perfect outfit to wear? I like to sketch it so I don't forget.
Since I'm a little bored with my winter clothes, I'm digging in the annals of my closet to discover those unworn clothes that may spark up with a new companion. One of those visions was this forgotten green wrap dress paired with my new blue tunic sweater. (see sketch)
There is a lot I love about the dress; it is a silk knit, I love the print and its the classic wrap shape that allegedly looks good on everybody. But to be frank, I never bonded with the wrap dress thing--it never looked that good on me--not that Diane von Furstenberg isn't a genius--it just doesn't work that well for me!
Overall, meh. At the least, its green for St. Paddy's day!
