The Garden Wrap Dress by Raga
So I admit… I may be a part of the small (and damned!) fashionista minority that isn’t the biggest fan of Diane von Fursternberg’s widely applauded, (and knocked-off) “wrap dresses”, mostly because they usually overpower my petite frame, and frankly make my body look shapeless and lost in an otherwise original and whimsical print of a fabric. ( You gotta wear clothes to fit and flatter you, folks! Remember, you wear the dress…don’t let the dress wear you! 🙂
It’s not to say that I don’t appreciate Ms. von Furstenberg’s contribution as a designer to the fashion world. Clearly her iconic dresses have earned the their place in the fashion world in such a way that that “wrap dress” is synonymous to “DVF”.
One particular wrap dress that I’m currently feeling right now is this one long maxi one I’m wearing here
by Raga. The “wrap” part of the dress serves as a sexy high slit on an otherwise very feminine and kinda boho-ey garden dress.
Whenever I wear this dress, (like when I was shopping in Beverly Hills) I get so many compliments! So I guess it’s safe to say…I’m now a fan of the wrap dress…so as long as it fits me, and goes with my style! 🙂
Most DVF wrap dresses are just under the knee, which can be a a tricky length for petite girls. It’s gotta be short OR long for me! No in between!
Now just a few Karen touches, like my signature hat and maybe a cute lil trendy velvet choker and I’m set!
What about you? Will you be rocking the wrap dress?
