The Real McCoy

Last night I attended a glam 60th Anniversary Party (yes, sixtieth!) for The Countess of Glamour and her husband Sanford Cohen. I decided it was the perfect moment to wear my newly thrifted Diane Von Furstenberg - DVF - dress.  My first ever DVF!  As I mentioned in my last post, labels only add to the appeal they do not define it.  However, there is an art and skill in the design behind many labels that come with a higher price tag and Diane Von Furstenberg is a designer that has earned her price. DVF is known for her classic designs that emphasize femininity and flatter the figure. This might be one of the most comfortable dresses I've ever worn and the asymmetrical ruching gives my square hips some much appreciated curveture.

The deep fuschia color played into this seasons pinks but is classic enough to work in with Fall's hues.  Oh yeah, I thrifted this dress from Goodwill for $20. I'm not one to spend over $10 on a thrited item, but once I tried it on I knew I had to have it.  Originally marked at $30 I had a savings coupon from racking up Club Goodwill points so I was able to score an extra $10 off.  I'm pretty sure this dress is from a recent season too, it's still online!  See to the right the original retail price. Thanks but no thanks!  While the design and labor that went into making this dress is well worth the cost, I'm not complaning about saving a few hundred dollars.
