Have you ever have one of those fabulous nights where you don’t remember how anything happened, except how much fun it actually was?
I happen to share a lot of those with one of my wonderful friends, Francis.
I couldn’t honestly tell you how we somehow found ourselves at the ultra posh Mondrian SoHo hotel in Manhattan. All I can remember is how we had an evening filled with laugher and just good times.
Luckily, those memories were captured in these photos, which still bring a smile to my face.
For this swanky affair, I wore a thrifted navy Diane Von Furstenberg body-hugging cocktail wrap dress, which I adore. Not only is it super comfortable, but it hugs my curves in all the right spots.
Unfortunately, this dress seems to no longer be offered by the couture designer, but Diane invented the wrap dress, so you can rest assure she has plenty of options! These are the ones I’m loving lately:
- Julian Two Silk Jersey Wrap Dress in Daisy Buds, $278
- Julian Two Silk Jersey Wrap Dress in Zebra Large Violet, $278
- Chantel Wool and Silk Ruffle Wrap Dress, $418
- Leandra Lace Sweater Wrap Dress, $369
- Elizabeth Lace Wrap Dress, $280
I’ll agree that DVF dresses tend to be on the pricey side, but this woman has been perfecting her art for 40 years now. Therefore, this is one investment you will treasure for years to come. You can also try thrifting and hopefully get lucky like I did. I believe this dress, in mint condition, was less than $30.
I don’t remember all the details of this evening, but I can tell you it’s one that I enjoy remembering.
Therefore? Dress for your life. Make it a gorgeous, fun spectacle. Be the star of your own show. Even if you have nothing planned, add one thing to your ensemble that makes you feel absolutely fabulous. Whether it’s a dress that enhances your figure, your favorite pearls, a swipe of fiery hot red lipstick, or those shimmering sneakers, rock it for the occasion that is your everyday existence. You never know what you’ll encounter for the day (or night), as well as the unforgettable memories you’ll create.
