I can dream about you.

If I can’t hold you tonight… a tip of the hat there to the song from the movie Streets of Fire.  I was under the weather and a bit zonked out from allergies so my fashion sense was relegated to being in jammies and robe with a cup of tea with honey and lemon.  No fashion photos to post so I started to “window shop” online to see what was out there; what was hot and what was so not!  While I do enjoy this kind of pain free shopping (the pain being when I get the credit card bill from real shopping – sometimes) often I find things I can only dream about owning along with some I can, some I will stalk like a starving wolf until they go on sale and a few that I look at with the thought of WHY is this even offered!

For some reason, maybe it’s because I saw so many celebrities wearing the dresses and I fell prey to the ‘I wanna be like insert name here’ syndrome, I’ve lusted for a Herve Leger bandage dress.  They are pricey, they are tight (very very very tight) and I have no idea where I would wear one other than a New Years Eve event because I don’t see me rubbing elbows with any stars anytime soon but again as my post title says…  Please please please let me rub elbows with Idris Elba if this dream ever comes true!

This beauty, originally $1150.00, was on sale for $603.75 at Neiman Marcus. (Image from Neiman Marcus) before it sold out.  Everything goes on sale eventually I suppose and that is a good thing but still, for me anyway, a dream.  While I can see paying this much for shoes – it’s my weakness I confess – that I would wear until one of us came apart at the seams, a dress this specialized (other than a wedding dress) is a purchase that remains filed under the when I win the lottery category.

But I did try one on once and I can tell you this, the dresses are heavy and they wrap themselves around you firmly.  Imagine a full body pair of Spanx; now you’ve got it.  I think underwear might have to be optional but we won’t go there.  Here is me when I tried on a bandage dress.  I could see myself wearing it somewhere (heck if I knew where but I defer to the post title once again) and it did make me feel sexy but the price tag meant try on, take a selfie (please pardon the quality and ignore the pile of clothes flopped on the chair; I am terrible at taking selfies) and give it back to the sales woman thanking her for letting me try on a dream dress.

I can honestly say now that I “wore” a Herve Leger dress 😉  Is there anything you dream about wearing and/or owning? And even better, did your dream come true?

Until next time ♥

Happy 4th of July – Red, White and Blue Looks

If you celebrate it, what are your plans? Ours are to sit in the back yard and watch the fireworks display from the local park and hopefully I get some good photos.  But looking out the window now it is very very cloudy so who knows!  Either way there will be grilling of something.  Haven’t decided on the menu yet will just wing it and maybe even wings for it – get it 😉  All I am sure of is dessert will be raspberries, blueberries and homemade whipped cream.  But what to wear?  Here are a few window shopping ideas to either get or give you inspiration for 4th of July wear.

 

This silk tank paired with some denim shorts in blue or white and add these lace up sandals to complete your look.  Both on sale at Madewell.

   

 

Or this shorts look as it is shown or you could substitute a white or blue tee or go with this blue and white gingham shirt.  Red, white and blue done with just two pieces and both on sale at JCrew!

 

  

 

Going to the pool? Then take this treat with you.  How “cool” is this floatie!  Afterwards, go to a party looking chic in this maxi dress.  Both from Nordstrom.

And you can top off any holiday look you choose by rocking these decadent sunnies at a price of $1815.00 but it does fit the red, white and blue theme.  Decadence is even part of their name.  You can get these from Neiman Marcus.  Nothing wrong with dreaming.

Have a happy and safe 4th everyone and see you next time ♥

 

 

It’s a Wrap!

A wrap by DVF that is.  Every woman should have at least one of her wrap dresses in their closet because they are pretty timeless and fit any and every body so well..not to mention the silk jersey is great for traveling.  The material packs well and barely wrinkles.  And to top it off, this one has pockets!
