I've christened this dress the Zou Bisou dress, for obvious reasons. It's not quite an exact copy of the A-line, full sleeved, rhinestone necklined cuteness that was worn so perfectly by Mad Men's Megan in this season's premiere. But I'd like to see this dress as a modern, edgy interpretation of that iconic look.
Non? I think so! I've been very much into true party dresses lately. Not that I party a lot (ha!), but over the years I've developed a habit of wearing all of my favorite stuff WHENEVER, including my prettiest dresses. This must change! None of my dresses feels "special" enough when I have an occasion for it.
I always thought it to be silly to save your favorite pieces for a rainy day, but I've come to the conclusion that I was AT LEAST partly wrong. So to overcome that feeling of cute dress = normal daywear, I'm looking for dresses that REALLY don't look day-appropriate. Even I wouldn't wear this cute cape dress to class, and that's saying a lot!
Also, you can swoosh around in it and it's awesome.
