Pink & Grey - Pt 2. - a la Diane Von Furstenberg & Stella McCartney



Diane Von Furstenberg Hillevi silk polkadot dress (worn with Willow silk slip dress under it, as I broke the slip that came with it)
Stella McCartney Fuschia silk pumps


Following on from my recent post, this was the first pink & grey outfit I wore last week (sorry once again for the bad/dark pic)
.

Last year I spotted 'Angela Petrelli' (character's name) wearing this same DVF dress on one of my favourite TV shows, 'Heroes', I was initially tickled that we had the same dress, and realized she was almost double my age. Then again, that's what I love about DVF dresses, their timelessness. I hope to still be wearing this at 60, and look half as good as 'Angela Petrelli' did.

Off topic, I'm so so so excited about my new precious stone beaded Dries Van Noten silk & leather clutch (love the lapis lazuli!):




Onto more important things: what are your plans for this weekend?
Mine will be filled with food, friends, family & lots of fun!

  2. ah i love this! the pink of the stella shoes is so wonderful... such a great highlighter colour without being too much. and the cut of that dress is so great, i love the waist tie thing. :)

    also that clutch is... WOW. when was this acquired? it is stunning! the colour is great. i'm thinking of making the gold lurex long skirt from the SS 09 collection my first DVN purchase... thoughts? i love the cut and style of it, i tried it on in barneys when i was in new york and really liked it, but they only had a size too small. I mean, i love all the pieces in that collection but i fear some of it is a little out of price range for me. do you have any hints for online shopping for DVN especially the SS09 stuff, i've done a reccy around ebay but haven't been too inspired by what i've seen.

    ps yeah that harpers cover is to die for, and i want it right now. i'll probably buy it air freight, that's what i do with all british vogue now. i really need to get a subscription haha.

  11. the dress is so chic !!! i love dots (and stripes).
    the pochette looks amazing, i like the fabric and the exotic beading.

    (this week end, i take pictures at my friend victor's home, where he will be rehearsing and recording a part of his new album with my boyfriend and other musicians.
    and maybe i will also take pictures of a little girl i met at the supermarket.
    she was so pretty, she had such beautiful green eyes that i couldn't help asking her parents if i could take pictures of her. so we met twice at her home, we got to know each other, and we made pictures that i really love.)

    have a nice week end !!!

    xx

    cathryn - Good luck on Monday with your test ;)

  17. Those pink shoes are a nice way to punch up a frilly dress. If I were to style the outfit, I'd probably end up looking like someone's granny or secretary. You make it look effortless :) Oh- you're making me want to shop!!!

  18. STUNNING! I love how the shoes add a pop of color and that fit of the DVF on you is just perfect!

  35. Sometimes DVF does it for me, others... less so.

    This is a firn tick in the box though!

  36. That clutch is so nice, love the intricate beading!

    Sadly, I probably won't get it. I think ASOS has a super high shipping/brokerage fee to Canada?
