I'm in love! After my Akira Isogawa wedding dress., this Dries Van Noten silk dress from the Fall 2008 collection is now my favourite dress in my wardrobe. Because of the sun/lighting, I noticed the multicoloured part of the dress appears more colourful in the pictures. In real life the colours are more subdued (as shown on the runway picture & close-up in my previous post).
I tried taking some outfit shots, but the lighting was all wrong, so you couldn't see the dress, and then I started melting due to the heat (probably a good thing, as I don't do this dress justice, it's SO beautiful in real life!), so I gave up, will try again when it's not so hot (the weather's 'cooled down' to 38 Celsius, 100 Fahrenheit)
Sorry the pictures are so big!
Oh dear! Somebody stop me! I was so happy & excited over the Djamilla dress, I bought the Davina the following day (from the same collection), it features a gorgeous pleated neckline & vibrant colours (not so vibrant in this picture), and a contrasting print hem at the bottom:
That's it, no more shopping for the rest of the month...
