DIANE VON FURSTENBERG WRAP DRESS SOLD OUT (SIMILAR)









Diane von Furstenberg's iconic wrap dress just turned 40!  Feminine, timeless, practical and sexy are words I would use to describe these amazing dresses.  It's hard to believe that DVF has been designing these wraps since the 70's, a time where women were entering the workforce.  I love that Diane's inspiration came from the sweaters ballerinas wear during their rehearsals, paired with a fluid skirt.  The fabric she uses fits to the body and displays the woman's curvy silhouette while still maintaining elegance and professionalism.  They also come in an abundant of creative patterns and colors and can be worn simple with no jewelry or piled on for a night out.  I absolutely love my DVF's!  They travel easy and I always get compliments when I'm wearing one.  I think every girl should own one because they will never go out!  Thanks Diane for keeping us girls looking so fabulous!
