Oscar de la Renta

About a year ago, I went through a serious mixed prints fetish. It was all stripes with florals and polka dots with paisley in this neck of the woods. Apparently, this love has stuck with me like a toxic ex-boyfriend. I’m ready to rekindle my affair with mixed prints, and this plaid and nautical print dress set my heart aflutter!

I’m always jealous whenever I pass one of those too-cool-for-school boho chicks on the street. Unfortunately, my high-strung East Coast pedigree precludes me from the bohemian attitude, but that doesn’t mean I can’t get in on the bohemian wardrobe. This dress stole my heart with its funky pattern and laid-back cut.

As a child, I thought the highlight of being an adult was getting to wear a business suit. Of course, this was the early-90’s, during the height of the reign of power suits. These days, the only chicks wearing the power suits of my childhood dreams are politicians, bankers, and the frazzled, dowdy women you tend to run into on the subway. I picture this as the creative alternative to my fantasy. Its every bit as chic, but much more fun.

This season’s Herve Leger collection blew me away! When the brand began its meteoric rise in popularity a few years ago, I wasn’t on board. The bodycon dresses looked so uncomfortable, like you were squeezing yourself into a full-body pair of Spanx! But this season, I’m a convert! The silhouettes feel more wearable, but the dresses are still just as sexy as they’ve been in years past.

The last few seasons, there has been a serious Mad Men effect reflected in the outfits we’re seeing on the runway. Trust me, I’m not complaining; the three Draper ladies (Betty, Sally, and Megan) are some of the best-dressed gals on TV. You better believe I’ll be seeking out a lace skirt ASAP.

Let’s pretend I get invited to the Oscar’s (FYI, we’re talking as Best Original Screenplay nominee, and not as a date to the sound engineer on a foreign movie no one has seen or heard of). I’m wearing this dress. Hear that ladies of Hollywood? I called dibs! When this dress came down the runway, the closing outfit of Jason Wu’s truly fantastic collection, I let out an audible gasp. This dress is perfection. So now that I have the dress, I just need to write the Academy Award winning screenplay. Easy, right?
