Pretty, Polished, Perfect.: Work + DVF

Work + DVF

My husband had his "office party" and yes, the dress was business casual.  Of course, nearly everyone dresses above and beyond the basic "anything but shorts/denim" criteria.  Not to be outdone, I pulled out one of my favorite (and when I say favorite, I mean I would cry if anything happened to this dress.)  Oh yes, it's one of the things I splurged on back in my single days; when I had no cares and spent my money frivolously because, well, I could!

I know this one looks nearly the same as the above photo, but check out my ponytail!! My ponytails are rarely so neat looking! 

Go ahead and laugh. Something is missing right? Yes, I do have two legs. This is the result of me trying to take an "artistic" photo; I amputate a leg.

Dress: Diane Von Furstenberg
Belt: H&M
Shoes: Daisy Fuentes (via Kohls)
Earrings: Vera Wang (I LOVE these earrings!)

Last week DVF launched the new perfume Diane.  A large group of woman converged on Manhattan, dressed in signature wrap DVF dresses, passing out samples of the new fragrance; New York, you make Kansas City look like a cow-town.  I'm just saying.

Though I haven't had a chance to check out the new perfume, I do think her dresses are divine.  I think every woman should own at least one in their lifetime!

Sigh, yes NY makes us look like a cowtown, but I do think you and I should develop a perfume called BBQ. The dress looks fantastic on you.

Yes! Should it be more vinegar or more tomato (I am seriously leaning towards the tomato scent, by the way.) Haha!

I just bought my first DvF last night! Eeeeeeeek!

Yours is gorgeous. It looks so long and lean and elegant, but such a lovely bright color too. PERFECT for a "I'd like you to meet my wife" moment!
